This will be my Dry Fire journal. So after this weeks local match and reviewing results I realize I have “plateaued”. My movement is good and my time is where they should be given that I am 53 but I’m giving up to many points. More about me, Already stated I’m 53 and have average to slightly better agility. Probably above average strength for my age. Weakness is definitely my vision and between my ears. My eyes are -9 with astigmatism. My dominant left eye has also had a large floater which I just had broken up with the first of two treatments. That helped. Also learned I have slight cataracts and will like be having that surgery soon. I shoot In Limited with a little SS thrown in around the Western States SS match. I know people will say I should switch to a dot but I’ll like the 1911/2011. My classification in LTD is sitting at a solid 77% with my two lowest of 8 being 71 and 72. When everything goes right I can get to 75-80 percent of GM hit factor on a stage but that is too infrequent. I’ll have too many stages with the unexplained Mike on an open target, and a load of Cs to ever score well in a match,
My my goals are two fold: first, make Master before it’s too late (I’m thinking that’s 55) and second improve my match performance. Improving my match performance to me would be shooting 90% of available points after penalties. Doing that at my current speed will I think provide satisfactory match results.
So let the Dry Fire begin. I’ve got Bens book and this journal will be my journey through the book and my progress. We’ve got three months until this years Nationals in Saint George. Plenty of time. Let’s get too it!
