Saturday April 12 I had the pleasure of watching some great shooters at the USPSA Area 6 Championship, shot this year at the South River Gun Club in Conyers, GA.
One thing that was hit home with me is that I like attending matches as a competitor much better than I do as a spectator. I think I even like to watch other shooters more when I am in the match. I think that has a lot to do with being able to identify with doing what they are doing, even if they are doing it a lot better.
In any case, I resolved to compete next year.
Having said that, one of the shooters I got to see was Lee Bautista, who writes for When The Balloon Goes Up, and with whom I have corresponded on Twitter for some time now. It was great to visit with him, even for a short while, and really hope we get to visit more in the future.
I got to video Lee on Stage 8. Here he is.
Here is video of the overall match winner, Max Michel, on the same stage. Nice.
