  1. Look one post up. .. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  2. True that.Had my first official USPSA match today. First stage I shot, 26 alphas 4 charlies. Scored at 38% for that stage (Limited minor). I guess I need to work on my overall speed for the next match. I'm also starting to realize there are different sorts of accuracy. There is shot to shot accuracy, but there is also inaccuracy caused by lapses in attention. You could be the most accurate shooter in terms of hit percentage, but you might still trip into a no shoot, or alpha Mike a target. That isn't caused by you shooting too fast, needing better sight pictures, etc. It is because you probably stopped focusing on the target you were shooting, and started thinking about the reload you need to do, or the 20 yard headshot that was coming up next.The ability to shoot all alphas is universal. Everyone in the sport can do it given enough time. The focus needed to call every shot on a stage under time pressure is something completely different. That takes a lot of practice, and it is not about the mechanics of shooting. It is purely mental.
  3. I'm not exactly sure how something can be faster but less repeatable. You are making the same shots from the same place. Maybe if it's mental, but other than that, you just need to practice drawing to close vs far targets, or sorting near to fast vs. Far too near, right Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  4. I think you got your station numbers wrong. You are using an xl650, right? Then you mean station 2 and 3 I think Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  5. I just pick up some gravel before I shot and run it around in my hands if my hands feel sweaty. I am considering bringing a chalk bag with to my next hot match. I use them for climbing anyway. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  6. I saw a review of edge Eyewear on ttag, and it stood up to being shot with#7 shot from a12ga. They are marketed as safety glasses. I've bought 4 pairs already. They are more stylish than the 3m ones I was wearing and seem to last longer. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  7. I wouldn't bother with the 21 and a +6, but that's just me. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  8. I tried some of the 22nd mags loaded to 21 during a steel match this weekend, and they ran just fine. I liked that you could easily tell how many were loaded. With the tti +6 you can't tell if there are 17 or 23 loaded by just looking. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  9. I tend to ask the ro not too tell me my time. I still want to know my misses. I don't have many. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  10. If you do this make sure to use a pencil torch to heat up the area you want to bend before trying to make any adjustments. Glock trigger bars are quite brittle if they're not hot. This is about the only way you can "tune" a fire control group to your particular gun. Glocks are pretty loose on tolerances anyway so the exact same parts will act differently from gun to gun. Use heat until cherry red, bend and let it cool. That would Ruin the tempering on the part. You would lose all hardnessSent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  11. Aim surplus has some from time to time Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  12. I try not to coach, even new shooters who need it because sometimes it isn't wanted. If I'm running a new shooter, and they are having trouble, I will ask first if they want help or coaching. I try to do a minimum between the beeps. I do try to let them know to keep going if they miss the stop plate and start ulsc. I do like to know I've missed a plate during a run for scoring reasons. It can be easy to race through the stage and not know you had a miss on the score sheet until results are posted. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  13. I'm am average shooter at best, but in my first ever practice session, I focused on my draw, and shooting at a clay on the berm, I managed to get below 0.90. On my fastest draw I actually broke the clay at 9 yards or so but I was point shooting, and that was luck Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk

    Cost

    I still don't shoot nearly add much as I would like,and I really don't think I would shoot any less if it was 3x the ammo cost. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  15. I wonder if there is something wrong inside your striker channel. Maybe the plastic sleeve is messed up. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
