  1. Moltke's Range Diary

    Saturday 2 December 2017 After not posting for over a year, I want to summarize what happened in 2017 1) I opened a training company called Origin Shooting LLC 2) I partnered with Peacemaker, NRA and Green Ops to do some great classes 3) 56 people came through my program and learned some great stuff 4) I went to 3 major 3-gun competitions and had fun (3GNSC, 3GNAL, and Topton) Overall I'm pretty happy and looking forward to 2018
  2. New Barrel for 200 yards and less

    If the targets you're going to shoot are small, then a barrel that gives tighter groups are going to be more important than a velocity gain if your max is 200 yards
  3. PSA side charger problems.

    Have you contacted PSA?
  4. Who cares. Shoot the center. Twice. Fast. And drive on.
  5. Moltke's Range Diary

    Monday 22 August 2016 After not posting for months I'm going to lump my recent experiences together. 1) NRA had another 3-Gun class which was great. The USMC Combat Shooting Team attended and the new recruits have serious potential. I taught the pistol portion of the class again and brought these guys out of their shell, they learned alot, and their performance gains were noticeable before and after. 2) The only major match I shot all year was Topton's 3 Man 3 Gun and it was glorious. On the first course of fire I shot a VTAC barricade rifle position fast & furious, wish I had video! Hell, I wish I had video of the whole day! My goal was to shoot a clean match and we crushed it. I was very happy with my performance. 3) Recently I went to Echo Valley and had a zeroing day where I took an experienced shooter and we re-zeroed his stuff to take the guesswork out of his gear. Irons is a different animal and having the best gear goes a long way. Figuring out how to maximize the performance envelope of what you're running is a must. 4) Recently I went to Bill's farm with another shooter and we did the same thing! Very good day. I expect one day this shooter to surpass me. 5) I took a shooter to the range for her first time ever and started with a .22 pistol. We focused on safety, gun handling, and the fundamentals of marksmanship. It was a good day. 6) I took the same new shooter back to the range to try a 9mm pistol. She shot my CZ Tactical Sport 9mm and proceeded to cut the bullseye out of the target at 5 & then 10 yards. Then she switched to a Glock 34 for the rest of the night and liked that even better! 7) I assembled my ground hog gun. The .223Rem 18 inch stainless Colt rifle that I won USCA Irons with, a Leupold 3-9x scope that I picked up off a prize table, a Vortex mount, and switched the Colt's muzzle brake for an AAC Brakeout. After screwing on my M4-2000, I went to Elite Shooting Sports and zeroed the gun comfortably on a bench with 77gr PMC. So now I've got dime sized groups that are 1 inch high at 100 yards and it should be pretty easy to take their cute furry little heads off while at my parents farm!
  6. As you get better your time perception changes!

    My perception of time changes relative to the visual inputs I absorb each moment, but if I change focus to the perception of time itself then I have left the moment
  7. Vision and Action

    Here's what it says to me By understanding what to practice, and then actually going to practice, you can change your world
  8. A funny thing happened at my first real 3 Gun

    See your sights on every target in your head before you shoot, play that mental movie again and again, and program yourself to be looking for those visual cues. Then when its time to shoot just relax, draw, and watch your front sight lift while you call the shots as acceptable or not. Make up the ones that didn't look or feel right, move when you need to move, reload when you need to reload, and put yourself on autopilot. If you truly embrace this then there will be no room for your conscious mind to distract you from shooting.
  9. Moltke's Range Diary

    Sunday 29 May 2016 This weekend I spent Sunday on Bill's farm shooting around just for fun, with no expectation of speed or accuracy, no timer and no pressure.
  10. Heaviest 9mm for wife

    Got it already
  11. Heaviest 9mm for wife

    Does the new tactical sport orange have a smaller grip? Or is that just something I imagined? Website says it weighs in at 3 pounds (aka 48 oz)
  12. Out of bax shotgun

    What is the reason people don't use the FN anymore?
  13. Heaviest 9mm for wife

    Maybe I'm going about this wrong. Should the question really be - Staying with limited minor what gun shoots the softest? I could give her what I've got now and just add a thumb rest (because I don't have one currently).
  14. CGW Dawson sights - shooting high

    Bummer and thanks for the correction
  15. CGW Dawson sights - shooting high

    This wouldn't work? http://czcustom.com/cz-parts-all/front-and-rear-sights/rear-sights/sp01-shadow-75-shadow-rear-sights/zdl-shadow-adjust-rear-sight.html "Shadow Adjustable Rear Sight Fits the SP01 Shadow and 75 Shadow rear sight dovetail. Adjustable for windage and elevation. This is an UPGRADED version of the sight sold on the CZ UB web site. We contracted with the manufacturer to be the supplier for the USA and has Several Substantial change made to this sight. We added set screw, different elevation screw and a stronger more reliable pivot pin. This is the same sight we use on the SP01 Shadow 2 as sold by CZ USA distributors. Requires a 7.5mm Front sight." Personally I've never liked the sight height guessing game so I just get an adjustable rear, zero, and move on - but hey, as long as you're zeroed!
