I expected a little more enthusiam.
Honestly, with the cold, and mud, and the fact that they had to tone down each stage a bit because of the wind and rain (and they even had snow!), it was difficult to keep up the excitement and pace. We'd wait for 20-40 minutes while the other persons in the squad were doing their run, we'd reset the targets, then go back to waiting till it was our turn or we moved to the next stage.
So yeah, enthusiasm was hard to hold, even for those 90 seconds we were actually shooting.
I did try to keep myself in the spirit. I did all the pistol stages *and* the rifle stage with my pistol...which I'm sure pissed some people off seeing as how they had trouble getting the reactive headshots with rifles and I was tearing it up with the pistol. And as the day went on, the reactive targets were getting more and more torn up and not reacting as well (or sometimes not at all) no matter how many head shots you gave it. So you'd see someone drop 3-5 rounds to the head, then meander over to the next position.
I totally blew the shotgun stages. Bek was nice enough to loan me his tactical shotgun, which was perfect for these stages, but I just had no experience with shot guns and kept shooting high in the stages.
Oh, and then Brianne would walk up behind me, and clean the stages no matter what weapon she used. The whole group would clap for her as she cleaned the stages faster and more accurately then all but the best couple guys in the group! Props to Breezy!
