  1. When I shoot strong hand only (right for me), the gun is straight out in front of my body with my right leg forward bent and almost a old dueler’s stance. When I shoot weak handed, my stance is reversed but the gun is slightly canted. Don’t know why, but it feels better and I feel like I have a stronger grip. I would say your problem is mostly grip related. Try loosening your pinky and ring finger just a little, might help.
  2. Thank all of you for the info. I researched this thread for a while and read lots of different discussions. Didn’t quite get the answers I wanted till I posted this. Just needed a little help getting started. The range is a long drive and can’t make it there very often for testing. With a starting place, I can load a few different and it saves multiple trips. thanks again!!!!
  3. Looking for a recipe for my son’s shadows. I have plenty of 124 jacketed bullets and need to know where to start. OAL? Using N320 in my gun and would prefer to keep using the same powder.
  4. Place your weak side leg out in front of you with the strong leg back. Sink in to your weak knee driving forward towards the target. Extend you weak hand as far out in front of your face and don’t bend your arm. Look at Max Michel’s video on YouTube about shooting weak handed. It works amazingly well. Before I shot this way, the gun always jumped inwards on recoil. Now it stays up and down and I’m driving the gun back into the target. So much more confident. Dry fire the transitions a lot.
  5. I find the smaller dots always work better over all. Even if it takes a fraction of a second to find it. Goes with the old saying, aim small, miss small. Big dots can wash out too much.
  6. Guilty of this and it cost me forty seconds on a par time stage. Double feed on my AR and both bullets made it into the locking lugs. Had to dig it out with my pocket knife. Argh don’t take untested equipment to a match, should’ve known better!
  7. Just shot hard as hell after shooting the nationals. Warmed up with my guns with dry fire practice and my muscles. Made a huge difference. Felt ready to go every day, not just after the third or fourth stage. Moving stretches with a light jog to get the blood flowing, worked perfect
  8. So was talkin about this with a friend. It would be okay as long as you weren’t resetting with them in. We have both seen RO’s recently that don’t ensure the range is clear prior to giving the name ready command. If no one sees you, and you don’t hear make ready, it’s gonna suck for you and everyone else. Please avoid while resetting or have a reset buddy that makes sure you aren’t bending down to fix something. Most everyone has seen the video with the guy taping while the stage is being shot. Don’t be that guy! Safety first
  9. A friend taught me a good trick a few years ago. Walk the backside of each stage. It will help you find hidden targets and determine if a popper is a forward faller. It has saved me more than once from double tapping one that was an activator.
  10. TPC instructor Ken Nelson posted a video the other day on Facebook specifically talking about techniques and less powerful grips. It’s a good video. I couldn’t find the link to post or would have.
  11. Locking your support hand wrist at a downward forty five degree angle to help control the front strap which in turn keeps the barrel down. The pressure on the sides of the grip should be firm but not enough to make the trigger finger stiff.
  12. First time I did this was with my friend before each day at the nationals. I noticed a big difference. It helps and none of the movements during the match felt off.
  13. A healthy disagreement is always good for deeper discussion into a subject that usually leads to a broader understanding of said topic! I just don’t understand Russian
  14. The older we get the more important it is to take care of our bodies. When your young, you need less to do more. When your older it takes longer to recover from injuries. Don’t have to run, just get the blood flowing and loosen the joints!
  15. So I just returned from the USPSA Handgun Nationals. I made a point of warming up and stretching each morning. A lite jog mixed with a lot of moving stretches really helped. I noticed the biggest difference on the first couple of stages. Every other sport in the world warms up, but all we do is drink a lot of coffee and walk around the stages trying to figure them out. Getting the blood moving in your body helps the mind and the body!
