  1. Errol Lawson Build?....that is a very nice blaster.. Congrats No doubt that is a Keal Custom, Errol Lawson, gun. The style of cuts and the slide racker are his for sure. I'm glad to hear he's still around. I met Errol at the US Steel Nationals. He is a great guy.
  2. I have been using N350 for about 4-5k rounds. My brass shows NO signs of high pressures. Interesting...
  3. The link you posted is my son Jake's first MAPSA match last year. That was wierd clicking a link for some shooter that I don't know and seeing your own son on it. Sorry about that. I probably copied the wrong link or something. lol
  4. Full size gun or shorty? Any holes? Thanks. Full size, no holes.
  5. I use N350 in 9 major. My load is 7.3 gr, 124 JHP, at 1.160 gives me about 172-173 PF. It is very clean...
  6. Jim,

    Do you have by chance any video of me at the Nok Down match?

    Thanks,

    Jason

  7. This is your correct link - http://www.youtube.com/jkatz44 Yes, sorry.
  8. What power factor are you guys trying to be out. 175?
  9. If I may ask, how much did it cost for you to build your limited gun?

  11. I am looking for a red dot sight to go on my 22/45. I know C more is the best but don't want to spend that much. What is an alternative option? Jason
  12. What kind of dot is this and how do you like it?
  13. The real question is why WOULDN'T you buy from Brian? :cheers:
  14. Bill is right on the money. I'm living proof of the above quote. Without getting into too much here I looked at shooting differently than most. I worked on all the other skils sets first and when I felt I was a good around shooter I started working on accuracy which was last yr. I did pretty well doing it this way. I tried working on accuracy but I never really decided to make it a priority. All my range time had been spent practicing shooting on the move, position work and everything else except accuracy. Don't get me wrong, I was trying to shoot A's and did pretty good job most of the time. Then a stage will come up and noshoot-mike then a couple of stages later, mike-mike. Just like the above quote my point is that you can do well without calling your shots but at some point you must learn to call your shots. If you don't you'll be inconsistant. You will have a good match or stage then the next one you'll tank. Learn to call your shots Flyin Here is just my $.02. I think that in order to "call your shots" you have to have a precise sight picture and really focus on the front sight. Really notice how the front sight tracks; up and back down. If you are very focused on that front sight, you will "see" in a split second where the front sight was when the shot broke. What also helped me is by not really focusing on the rear sight. Only if I think the shot is pretty hard, I will then consider the rear sight in my sight picture. P.S. Sorry if I confused you. I don't explain these things to good. lol. I have disagree wholeheartly. Shot calling is knowing where your shot impacts at that exact moment it breaks. Even if your sights are misaligned you call the shot. That's why you see a good shot caller makeup a miss in .15 second. Now you are doing a good thing. You are aiming on every shot which is the prelude to becoming a great shooter. There is more. The more is you can shoot faster with less of a precise focused sight picture if you are calling your shots. As you open your awareness you see more and shoot faster. Nothing personal just trying to help. I believe you are in a great position to make a leap forward. You are way ahead of the local SPEED demon. He's fast. You know him. Sometimes wins stages over the M's, might even be a M but "crashes and burns" so often it becomes a way of life. Oh that's another different problem but to the point he won't even listen, learn or much less change. He doesn't have accuracy as one of his skills. The issue that John talks about is if you are not calling your shot then you start to shoot faster but start to miss. Shot calling is a skill and needs to be developed, no shortcuts. Thanks Bill! I appreciate all of the information you are giving me. The above bolded sentence is what my problem is. I need to learn to call my shots to be successful in the long term. P.S. Bill, what exactly do you mean by opening my awareness?

  16. To be honest, not 100% sure... With that said, tho, I know that I shoot fairly consistently with both eyes open and staying open thru the shot(s) - I watch the sights lift and fall, and or the dot move around. The odd thing is, and I hope this is a first indication that shot call is kinda working... After I Shoot a stage, I know exactly where I had a mike or a delta, but my brain doesn't register it quick enough to make it up while in the instant of shooting that target. Yesterday for example. I was shooting open at an outdoor match. It was the classifier (I had shot a completely clean match to that point and this was the last stage). Unfortunately, I was up to go first, is was CM08-03 (six). I shot 4A 1C 1M in 3.91 and as soon as I was done, I said, there is a Mike on that first target, it flew over the upper right shoulder. Had I not made that mistake, that time would have been a high B classifier, as it will turn out, it won't count. And to make matters worse, it was a comstock classifier because of the steel. So, I've got to acquire this learned skill. Its becoming very apparent that it's 100% necessary to any progress. I suppose on the good news side of this conversation, as soon as it comes to me, I'll probably reach a new level of shooting (thereby looking for the next challenge to overcome - quickening the pace I'm sure). Lastly to the question of eyes open, or not... I do know there are times when shooting open in a confined area, that the percussion will cause me to blink... It doesn't happen every time, but I do know there are times when it happens. I work on that by RO'ing as many open shooters as I can, and forcing myself to keep my eyes open while they are shooting in those same confined areas. It seems concentrating on their gun, etc, while acting as RO, helps me drill with a similar concentration level as when I'm shooting that area. I appreciate the comments so far... I'm still pouring over them and at first blush it sounds like I need to do 2 things. a) practice that drill that Brian mentions around par time on n shots and drawing where the shots hit, then determining if thats really where they hit from the actual target - all this while working the par time down target transition practice - this seems it can be done in dry fire, working to break the first shot at the appropriate location on the target. c) and this hasn't been discussed yet.... I shot limited for almost a year and my focus there was on the front sight, now with open, I need to focus on the target, not the dot and let the dot come to the point of impact. That's a little different that the way I shot limited. And there are times that I find myself pushing the dot as opposed to leading the dot to where I want it to go. Thanks again, Alan I too am trying to learn the ability to call my shots. I think I am starting to learn it because I know when I shoot a "bad" shot. My problem is I am not focusing on the front sight enough but I am focusing on the targets. Any ideas for me?
