  1. I ask because I want to make sure that enough targets are on hand. I guess better to have too many than not enough.
  2. Is there a rule of thumb for how many rounds a target can take between being changed out for a major match? At local matches the targets are in pretty good shape after 80 rounds so I am thinking 100 or so...
  3. So here I am asking annoying “is it legal questions... For some reason I was certain that the brass backstraps by Taylor Freelance would be legal for production so when they were announced for the ppq today I started to buy it but then thought “better double check”, and now I am not sure. Would that be considered a grip panel? Would it be legal or illegal under other regulations? I know it’s fine for weight and the box. Thanks in advance for any advice.
  4. There have been a bunch of matches getting cancelled this year, some more gracefully then others. What do you think is the best way to handle this as a Match Director? What aspects of the cancelations are the most frustrating to you as a competitor?

  7. Already got the book and love it. Now he is here trying to talk me into a class
  8. Yup, misses are right-left across the target because I am never getting the gun stopped on individual targets. I went back and re-read Charlie Perez's thoughts in his book. He suggest driving transitions with the legs and keeping the upper body rigid "like a tank turret". I had great success with this in my first live fire session. The feeling I am chasing is snapping my hips to each target in addition to my eyes. Charlie goes as far as to propose never even moving your head separately from your upper body in transitions, that should solve the alignment problem since everything from the hips u
  9. I guess my immediate goal is to improve my transition technique with the ultimate goal of transitioning faster and more accurately. The last couple dryfire sessions I have been practicing without the timer and quantifying improvement by what I see and feel. I try to feel a sense of urgency moving my eyes to the next target, I try to see a specific spot on the target to aim at, I try to move my focus back to the front sight before getting on the trigger. I am also trying to not feel any muscling of the gun like you suggested. So far it feels weird... which I like because I know that
  10. I run tons of Stoeger's Accelerator drill in live fire. Other than that I haven't practiced transition in live fire much. I will try spreading those targets out in dryfire tonight.
  11. Explore this in practice. Generally if something feels fast in a match it is because you are thinking about it. The goal is for these things to be subconscious, then you can feel slow and look fast instead. I am also frustrated with my trigger speed. The best results I have had at improvement have been strengthening my grip to better manage recoil. I think that helped because it keeps the gun from moving around in my hands.

  12. What is the ideal transition drill? My summer goal is to transition out of B class by improving transitions. So far I do ye ol' first 12 drills from Steve Anderson's Refinement and Repetition. My only transition practice is on the el prez array. For me these short transitions end up more of a timing exercise when I push hard across the array. I feel like there are several different kinds of transitions: el prez type - short transition, same target difficulty. distance change up - short transition, different target difficulty. wide transition within normal
  13. I find this is typical with factory ammo. My understanding is that it indicates that the brass isn’t getting a good seal in the chamber... or maybe it is ejecting early... I guess I’m not sure because factory is typically hotter than my reloads and that’s were I see it. The point is, it’s not a problem. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Guys, thank you for the feedback. Dumb idea, I am over it.
