  1. When matches come back I probably won’t have any ammunition for them anyway.
  2. I finally learned to shoot decent off hand groups by shooting static steel painted white. Center your first and just keep aiming at the last shot. For some reason I can do it on paper now to. I can usually get a 2 1/2 group at the end of each shooting session to make me feel better especially if I have a bad practice lol. This is with my G17 mind you. With other pistols I have with single action triggers I can work out just under 2. This is at 15-18 yards. From a rest I can get it at 25. Not too much longer though, my eyes are getting poor now. Im watching this thread cause Power Pistol is
  3. I like to hear everything I can from my surroundings when shooting on the clock. I like to hear the magazine going into the grip, and my slow exhalation while I manipulate the trigger. I’m really into the front sight and anytime I have tried music, I simply don’t hear it. Grew up in the age of acoustic miniaturization and am fond of these things. I just don’t listen. I have a pretty loud internal dialog as I shoot a stage. Typically it’s something like: Beep Gun on table mag in Rack it! Front sight! 2, 2, move, gun up Steel steel reload! step left, gun
  4. Our family is getting a puppy in early November.
  5. This is why I switch eyes on things like this. Left hand gets the left eye, right hand the right. Otherwise it feels weird. Much faster though right side, but I don’t fear it.
  6. I can’t sit to load. Kills my back!! I have been cranking out ammo on my SDB since’03. Think I would be proud to wear my press out
  7. I’d let her try an Xdm or Xd either in 9mm. My daughter shoots a 34 and tried an Xd45 and really liked it.
  8. Part time employees where I work have been eliminated and there will be reductions in pay and further cuts ( jobs) if the reduction in people working persists. Government is affected just like everyone else and usually hires later than the private sector when things improve. I know a few people who work for the USPS and I am hearing strange things about what is going on there. Working in the public sector does not make you immune to this problem. Just ask all of the early childhood educators from our campus.
  9. I’m pretty sure you are correct.
  10. Just got back to shooting this year. Built a target batch of USPSA target stands and A-zone size steel plates. My middle daughter asked me to come along and learn to run and gun. So I have started coaching her on the basics of draw, trigger control, front sight focus, movement. Range time has become longer and more productive than when I am alone. She has a great attitude and strong accuracy. I can give her suggestions and she lets me know if she is seeing what she needs to or not. I wonder if my Dad enjoyed this as much as I do? This is really helping me with my shooting skills too.
  11. I ordered a small 2k order from BBI on 9/1/20 1k 135g 9mm 1k 230g 45acp According to USPS they are still in TN. They arrived today 9/11 5 days longer than usual, but much faster than the horror stories I have been reading. I wonder when the postal service will realize that they have been received?
  12. To reduce or eliminate the rearward impact of the slide with the frame.
