  1. If she is new to shooting, learn to shoot left handed and be done with it. My granddaughter is 9 years old, and left eye dominant. Her dad and I are starting her off the right way . . . left handed. I had a battle of my own, growing up left handed and loosing the sight in my left eye in 1980. It was a hard row to hoe, learning to shoot all over again right hand (at age 31). Especially the long guns . . . UGH! Good luck!
  2. Yeah, what he said. What is that stuff you buy at the hardware . . . . green goop? I use it in my yard equipment, to keep the tires up.
  3. I use my CED 7000 for practice, primarily . . . occasionally for running shooters. I chose this timer because of its size. You see, I'm one of those people that wears pocket tees, exclusively. The CED is a perfect fit! Oh, and with the optional sleeve, a drop on concrete does no damage. Tested, accidentally, several times.
  4. I have several "casual shooter" friends. We enjoy shooting together, occasionally. However, I can not get them to shoot a match with me. Why? 1) feel they are not good enough . . . will look bad in a competitive atmosphere 2) too big of a commitment in time, and money
  5. I have a feeling everyone has this issue in the beginning. I certainly did. It took me a long time to overcome it too. In addition to the dry fire with timer, practice live fire with the timer as well. While doing live fire drills, learn to clear your mind of all thought. After the make ready command, and you have loaded and holstered, clear your mind of any and all thought. At the sound of the buzzer, all those hours of practice and your subconscious mind will carry you through.
  6. A whole lot of practice, and not all dry fire as Scottie outlined. With my first "dot" I practiced, from high ready, extending my arms out and aligning the dot on the target ( in slow monition). I did so until I could close my eyes, push the gun forward, open my eyes and the dot would be on target. My starting distance was just 5 yards. Master this and I believe you will find the dot every time, at speed. Now, do the same, drawing from the holster. Again, preform the exercise slowly. Once you can open your eyes and see the dot on target, speed up. And, don't credit me for these dri
  7. Nothing can be accomplished without effort . . . one must try. I do not take advice from a fictional character, in a fictional movie, speaking a fictional line. How is that working out for you?
  8. Good day Reshoot, I am an IPSC shooter in the small island of Barbados. Im very interested in your drills for shooting on the move.

      From Steve Anderson's book, "Refinement and Repetition", I use his 'walking the triangle" and "walking the square" drills. They helped me a lot.

      Thanks so much for this.

  9. During stage planning, I determine where I will have to reload . . . physical location within the stage. This makes it more of a subconscious act. Makeup shots on steel, or a Texas star, I do not actually count but it does tell me to reload early. The plan is to never run my open gun empty, but drop mags with a couple, three rounds left in them. The plan works 80 ~ 85% of the time.
  10. Don't give your conscious mind things like that to do. Keep it simple, keep it clear. You must learn to let your subconscious mind do the work.
  11. Fiance? Yeah, that will probably work out okay, until the title changes to wife. Them . . . I shoot 2 matches per month. It gets too expensive, and too much travel time, to maintain a 3 match month. Fortunately, I have an awesome wife that does not complain about my shooting and bike riding. 49th anniversary this year . . . woot, woot!
  12. I'm just glad to see a slide mounted optic is required.
  13. I could care less, one way or the other. Carry Optics does not affect me in any way, since I have no plans to leave open. Having said that, there has yet to be any participation at the two monthly matches I shoot. I believe this is partly due to it being provisional . . . people reluctant to spend the money on a maybe. Perhaps it will become more popular if, and when, it becomes an official division.
  14. What him said! And, don't try to move too fast. As already stated, dry fire this A LOT. That is how I mastered the process, and I often get positive comments on my ability.
  15. I have only tried 2 brands. Berry's and Rainers. Neither would give me groups that Montana Gold's do. And, buying in large quantities the cost is very little more.
