  1. Hasn’t been good since before Negan. New showrunners turned it from one of the best shows on TV to something unwatchable.
  2. I only had one bad match experience, my first. There were only about 6 on our squad and the guy who was ROing had also brought a new shooter. On one stage where you basically are forced through a corridor and just shoot through openings on either side he realized he missed an array and comes barrelling back straight towards us, barrel of his open gun which he was having all kinds of issues with and didn’t seem all that familiar with pointed right at us. No DQ. Then the shooter didnt understand the stage briefing on a Virginia count stage with mandatory shooting sequence and when
  3. I think the Hopkins Drill is great for getting the eyes to lead. You arrange pasters on the wall (actually two walls but kind of beside the point) instead of targets. Because they are so small, if you don’t lead with your eyes and really lock onto the paster, you will find the gun “hunting” around before settling on the target. So whether it is the Hopkins drill exactly or just using pasters in different patterns, the concept really helps.
  4. All genres of metal for the most part. And some shooting podcasts every once in a while when i can't seem to decide on a band.
  5. I always have to make sure i am looking at a specific point inside the magwell. If my reloads start going south more often than not it is because i am just looking at the magwell as a whole and not at the inside front corner. Kind of like just looking at brown vs. a specific spot on a target.
  6. May touch the right side of the trigger guard to try and relieve a little pressure on the callous that builds up on my middle SH finger but other than that, nothing. I'm the long pole in this performance tent, not my gear.
  7. Pegboard with a double straight hook. It holds my belt with all mags filled with dummy rounds. Next to that are pants with the inner belt already in the belt loops and timer attached. I just throw them on, wrap the belt and am ready for dry fire.
  8. I like Dry Hands too. I actually put it on the back of my stong hand fingers. I dont like having it on my weak hand when grabbing mags.
  9. I am completely guilty of trying to get too cute in stage planning. When i see really good shooters shoot, i dont see them doing crazy stage plans full of risky shots, i see them just being very efficient. They shoot the array, move fast to the next array, dont waste time setting up or dallying before leaving, etc. I think there are times when things like shooting on the move make sense, but they are still in the context of the whole plan. Just crushing a simple stage plan will probably reap more benefits from what i have seen.

    Glock Gen 5

    People complain Glock doesn make big or meaningful changes, but to me they are like AC/DC, iterating on a basic, proven platform. I have big hands, so my only concern is that little cutout on the front strap, wonder if i would get pinched as i insert a mag. I dont even notice the finger grooves, so not sure that will have an effect.
  11. UA coldgear long sleeve under my shooting shirt. If i need more than that i wil, have a jacket on over, i dont want anymore bulk.
  12. Without knowing your actual fitness level and experience with any kind of lifting, there is no way to prescribe anything in detail. To be explosive you ned to be strong (relative to a given bodyweight). So it makes sense to address that. To translate that strength into speed you need to work on being explosive from a static start, you also would work on deceleration, we basically move into and out of position. Then there is a bit of actual agility which involves moving non-linear from one position to another. i would skip the trainer, the barrier for entry is pathetically low a
  13. Same as every other day, protein like steak, chicken or eggs and some nuts. If it is foing to be really hot i might up water a bit the days before but i am always drinking water so really not much difference. As mentioned, the morning of a match isnt going to make up for being out of shape and/or having a bad diet to begin with.
  14. I have been trying an elastic tape on the back of my strong hand, it has a rough weave and my weak hand gets a good grip without putting any grip lotion on. Works well but is a pain to get on, it doesn't tear easily so you have to use scissors. my strong hand doesnt seem to slip, even in really hot weather. I juat use a little climbers chalk at this point.
  15. Just an FYI, Inov-8 come in two lasts, standard amd performance. The performance is narrower and hugs your feet a little more, the standard has more room in the forefoot. Do your research because some models i believe are available in both lasts.
