It's a sad day, Jerry gets beat

Jerry gets beat in a 3 gun. I guess he's slowing down a little as he ages.

Sad to see. Watching this made me feel better.

Does your name need to end in -ek to place in these matches?

Jerry goes to a lot of matches and he's been beat before. It's really no big deal.

IPSC was more of a thinking man's game and the same guys won most of the time. The rules have been getting modified over the years to help the athlete.
The thinking was if you could get athletic people, baseball mostly, that they would have the physical edge. It was thought sponsors would come through with money and these guys would win.

It didn't happen as planned, the greats still dominated the game. It did turn IPSC into what looks more like NASCAR with the jackets and all the regalia to boot.

Jerry is getting old and will start losing more often though.

I was watching Shoot Out Lane a few weeks ago and IIRC Jerry was talking about getting ready for major matches and events. He said he used to shoot 90-100,000 rounds just in preparation for that event. Now he is down to a few thousand because he would lose focus during the shooting practice and his recovery time was longer.

Still way better than me though.
