  1. I disagree wholeheartedly. Do we really need to ban everything?
  2. Why does this still get argued about?
  3. "If all you own is a hammer, everything looks like a nail". Gotta be able to do both and know when and where to employ them. You won't be satisfied with target focused results on partials at distance. I'm confident of that. And Juan, that's what I've been saying repeatedly. Gotta know your capabilities to deliver the goods.
  4. That's entirely up to each shooter, now isn't it?
  5. Well put, IMO. What I'm trying to get across is this: Every shot needs to be an Alpha to be competitive. Just like slapping the trigger vs. a prep, it doesn't matter HOW you do it, as long as it gets done without negatively effecting the outcome. If you are blindingly fast at 10 yards and can yield 2 As with your eyes closed, then there's your answer. Each shot needs to be given the appropriate level of attention that it deserves. A target at 3 yards doesn't, FOR ME, need a whole lot of attention to be scored 2 Alpha. I'll look just close enough to get the desired score and shoot a
  6. OK...question still stands. What may slow one down? Too much time focused on accuracy when a proper index, as you alluded to earlier, will yield 2 alpha without dawdling.
  7. Precisely my point. If the only tool you own is a hammer, everything looks just like a nail. Aiming is the same way in my opinion. If all you know how to do is target focus when you are pushed out to 15, 20, 50 yards you're hosed. If all you know how to do is hard sight focus then you may be slow on a 3 yard target. You need to know where your boundaries are. You need to know where you can speed up and where you have to slow down.
  8. Mark, I've been uniquely positioned to do just that. I was Match Director at Fredericksburg, which is one of the largest USPSA matches in the country. I've trained privately with Todd Jarrett and I've had plenty of opportunity to discuss with the 5+ GMs I would shoot with every month what they do and how they do it. I feel confident in the recommendation that a shooter needs to know what they can do. They need to know what it takes to get two Alpha at any distance. Just saying oh you can have a fuzzy target focus at 10 yards doesn't mean THEY can it means YOU can. You have to experi
  9. I have to admit, I think there's a lot of misinformation in this thread. You need to figure out for yourself what you need to make the shot. Remember there's some guy out there that will shoot 95% of the points faster than anyone else. They're called match winners. So in order to accomplish that you have to know what it will take to get a pair of Alphas. Not Alpha Charlie. If you can reliably get 2 Alphas with a target only site picture at 3 yards great. Same at seven or 10 yards. But you got to have to Alphas. The other guy will. Again, you have to know with absolutely certainty what you
  10. You can tell by the slide stop machining on the port side that its an original frame. That's cool. A piece of history.
  11. I'm not sure that's accurate. Here's what I can tell you. When I'm shooting well, I can see the serrations in the front site clearly. I can remember the site picture for each and every shot I take. Literally. I used to believe that this was nonsense and it was impossible, but it isn't. If I'm on my game and doing what I'm supposed be doing I'm aware of the sites as I break each shot. My gut feeling is it something you have to learn how to do. I did. But I'm also learned that I can put two in the Alpha at 7 yards without seeing the sights at all.
  12. There's more to it than this. It's about seeing what you need to see to break the shot. You cannot expect to be making 50 yard shots without razor crisp sight focus. It just isn't going to happen. But at 7 yards you may be able to get away with not looking at all. You need to learn what it takes to get an alpha each and every time you pull the trigger at every distance. I don't care if you're training for the Olympics. The point is the same. You need to know exactly what you need to see in order to be successful. The only way to get that information is to practice it every distance. F
  13. Do you wear glasses? A big hinderance for front sight focus is glasses that are designed to make the focal length longer than the front sight. I have shooting glasses that put the front sight in razor sharp focus and it help substantially.
  14. New to shooting sport,I have a factory M&P 9L what exactly do I need to go with these apex parts. I was thinking about getting the full comp. enhancement kit from apex. Whats the difference.
