DAY 160 - Saturday December 28th

Info: I'm the match director for Eastern Colorado IDPA held at Colorado Rifle Club, and it just so happens the weather was 50 degrees and it was match day! I had to pack and plan a bit today because I didn't want to starve, or eat junk, that's all new for me...the planning thing as some of you can attest LOL. Anyways it worked out well, everything ran smooth and we had a lot of fun! No pictures of food today, was too hard running a match, shooting a match and trying to get photos.....buuuut here are some pics of my competition guns that I am currently using! (sorry for you folks that may not like guns, I do. I use them like one would play golf, they are safe, and they are very enjoyable!)

Top: My IDPA/USPSA production gun, it is an Springfield XDM 9MM 4.5". I have added a Dawson Ice Magwell, Powder River precision trigger kit, a Dawson competition front sight, and a Henning competition rear sight.

Right:  is my USPSA Limited gun a EAA/Tanfoglio Witness Limited chambered in 40 S&W. I have added an XL firing pin, conefit guide rod, grip panels, competition magwell, a flat trigger, and a competition spring all made by Henning. The magazine also have extensions that make them hold 21 rounds for competitions also made by Henning. Anyways just wanted to introduce you to my tools that I use on a regular basis....on to the food and fitness!

Food Log: 

Breakfast: Buffalo chicken breast, broccoli salad, 1 pear, 3 jumbo olives.
Lunch: Buffalo chicken breast, Paleo slaw, 1 pear, 3 jumbo olives.

Dinner: Buffalo chicken breast, Paleo slaw, almond butter.

Snack: none

Exercise log: I ran everywhere I went on the range during setup and tear down just to get some exercise in, ran ~1 1/2 miles. Also played hockey for 2 hours later at night for some more exercise as well. I can tell legs are going to be sore tomorrow......



  1. Important stuff here...which gun do you LIKE to shoot the most? Which one do you shoot better with?

  2. Well, the XDM is what I have shot the most, It won me the Rocky Mountain 300 for my class last year, 2nd place at Colorado State IDPA, 4th at Utah State IDPA, and 2nd at New Mexico State IDPA and some money.....soooo I would pick the XDM so far!!!

    Also I just got done building the Tanfoglio, and have only put 41 rounds through it (yes I keep track, LOL) so I don't know with that one yet. I can say that it shoots really well, and the mechanical accuracy is AWESOME! I am kicking around shooting Limited division at the RM300 this year with it, and giving it a go!

  3. Oh and I forgot the which I LIKE to shoot the most?

    The XDM so far, its 9mm and cheaper, and I just have used it so long it's like a crutch!
