Hands are sore, legs are sore, and I'm learning.
Put in a good session Saturday night going position entry & exit, both directions using 1/3 scale targets at a simulated 15 yards with shooting boxes 10' apart.
Averaged 4.5 seconds, interestingly enough same time in both directions. Ran Entry for 7 minutes each direction, then Exit 7 minutes each directions and for good measure ran Entry again 3 minutes each direction but with a reload in between. Highly surprising, performing a reload did not slow me down at all.
Last night did a bit of work on port entry / exit both directions, barricade entry/exit. Approximately 3 minutes each direction.
Port work leaning to the left (weak side) is much more difficult than the right (strong side) Going left to right, I was matching barricade times but right to left was a PITA to hit proper stance & lean around the barricade.
This morning was simulated 20 yard partials, distance change-up, and Hi-Lo transitions.
20 yard partials feels good and looks good. My eyes keep jumping back to the front sight though, I want to keep a target focus with a blurry yet aligned sight picture. This is something I need to work on in live fire to prove the concept.
Distance change up is getting quick & more consistent. using simulated 10 yard metric targets & a 2" plate @ simulated 10 yards. Again something I need to prove in live fire.
Hi-Lo transition was quick & consistent starting on the low middle target. Starting hi and moving low was more difficult with a tendency to over swing target; need visual patience to clear hands & gun enough off target center to find visual focal point. Continuing to emphasize snapping eyes to center of target area, caught myself riding the sights a few times.
Long term focus in training: Snapping eyes to center of best target area. Grip pressure, as eloquently stated on the PPS, I'm striving for a cock strangle hold with my weak hand. It's getting better every session.
Near term focus is practice in match mode - calling every shot. My speed is increasing greatly, I will translate that into seeing more quickly and calling every shot.
Next local match is this Saturday. I am going to this match to call every shot, move aggressively during non-shooting times, and shoot sooner.
