With all of the training I have been doing this year I decided the next step in my progression as a shooter was to try out the competition stuff. I decided to start with a local USPSA match. Walking away from the match, I learned how competition is a great test of your overall shooting ability, the mental or "thinking" aspect of shooting plays a major role in your performance, and can provide you with a clear picture of what you need to work on. 
If You Can't See, You Can't Shoot

Target acquisition and identification is a huge part of high-performance shooting. Obviously.  If you can’t see, you can’t shoot.  There’s more to it than simply “seeing” your target though.  The eyes are just the first link in a complex chain of information processing that occurs in the brain which allows you to quickly and accurately assess, decide, and act upon targets.  More on the complex information processing stuff in a later write-up; for now, let’s just focus on the eyes (no pun intended).

Standards: 1. a level of quality or attainment. synonyms: quality, level, grade, caliber, merit, excellence.What standards do we place upon ourselves when working in an environment with others who do similar tasks (e.g. shooting)? What level of accountability should we have for our lack of proficiency when it comes to training?
