  1. I had a limited style holster for a while. I found the best technique for me was the sweep draw.
  2. Dry fire is extremely important almost more important than live fire just because it's safer and cheaper. Haha. I shot maybe 150 rounds 2 weeks before the Virginia state idpa championship with hours of dry fire though and took 1st in ESP Expert.
  3. I use a CZ SP-01 shadow for all my matches. I get 1st overall most of the time in 3-gun, USPSA, IDPA and steel challenge. Used it at the southeastern 3-gun regional this year and hung with the best of them on pistol.
  4. I shot a 3-gun match that required shooters to run down a hill while it was raining. Had a bunch of people fall. I ended up getting 1st because I took the rain into consideration and slowed down a bit.
  5. If you do go fiber optic then don't forget to keep it clean and to always keep extra fiber and a lighter in your bag
  6. My thoughts e This is always a good option to consider, and particularly good advice for a novice shooter. It's almost as fast as doing it on the move and easier than sticking the load on the move while minding the 180. My thought exactly. I do it mainly when I realize that I didn't take into account a reload going right to left in my stage walk through.
  7. What problems are the grip causing? Are your splits slower? Are you shooting to a specific direction compared to non-1911 pistols? Thanks.
  8. I shoot because I enjoy bettering myself. The gains I achieve are quick and satisfying. It keeps me coming back for more.
  9. I normally place them in the order that I am going to shoot them as well. I use and ELS belt and will throw an old ap customs 4x4 with extra slugs in case I need an extra.
  10. Here is a drill I do a lot. Another one I like is using a texas star and its 2 shots on the bottom plates, throw a quad, and finish the texas star. Also shooting the plate rack while moving from one position to another.
  11. For my CZ SP01 Shadow I replicate what I would be doing in a real match. I draw first shot DA and then after that I don't let the trigger out I keep it held back roughly in the reset area. I think it has done wonders for me. I know a lot of guys that just cycle the DA I think this develops bad muscle memory. Your finger is going to expect to be doing a long hard pull everytime and thats just not how it is with DA/SA

  13. Get someone to video you at your matches. That has really helped me. I can see where my hiccups are and then work on those in dry fire sessions or live fire.
  14. Just wanted to get peoples opinion on if you work on your draw and one shot drill. I from time to time do it mainly because it is fun but I don't think I get much out of it other than a fast draw and that is something I can do without ammunition.
  15. I agree work a lot in dry fire on drawing and gripping the living daylights out of it with your weak hand. You want to have strong precise movements.

    Shot Calling

    Something to remember is don't just be slinging lead. Make your shots count. Don't break your shots on a long distance target unless you can see your sights lined up. I see to many times people shooting the same splits at a 20 yard target as they would a 5 yard target.
  17. A good stage design software can go a long way. http://www.tridentstagedesigner.com/
  18. It does become an obsession for sure. I gave up all my other hobbies and competitive shooting is all I think about now. Welcome to the sport!
  19. well crap now you have me worried about my mag brake. Guess I better upgrade to the CZC one. It is always something with guns. haha
  20. It should be more instinctive shooting when engaging a bagged target. Go for center mass. It is frustrating not being able to see your shots though. At our local IDPA matches they will put old t-shirts over the targets sometimes.
  21. If you are getting any Mikes then you are going way to fast. It always pays to slow down and make sure you get your hits. Don't focus to much on splits. Focus on stage planning, footwork, transition speeds, and reloads. Those are the things that get your 1st. Obviously if you have a 1 second split on a 5 yard target then that is going to severely hurt you but you get the point.
  22. After bouncing back and forth through various guns in the past 3 years. I finally realized why I wasn't getting any better and thats because I was switching it around to much. I sold all my guns but 1 and that is all I use in IDPA, USPSA, 3-gun, and steel challenge. I have seen a huge improvement in just 6 months. Just started shooting USPSA last year and shot my first Master classifier last weekend.
  23. It is a CZ SP01 Shadow in 9mm.
