  2. A lot of the guys I shoot Production with that run factory ammo shoot Federal Syntech anmo. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  3. Here is a visual to show you what how hits vs time vs PF impact score. Ignore the arrows. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  4. This all day. I'm new to the sport but it didn't take me long to figure out hit factor scoring and the effect of time vs points has on it. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  5. Not the expert here but I would say the grips are too small. You want as much contact between the grip and your hand as possible. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  6. Hey guys. So is there an objective measure to know if the grip is too large or small for you hand other than feel? Something like the position of your index finger relative to the trigger or trigger guard. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  7. What type of checkering file would you use to do it? Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  8. Was able to work on transitions at the range. I worked on Blake Drill at about 7 yards. First I worked on just the transitions without the draw. I pushed at the same speed as in dry fire. I was averaging about 1.2 seconds. Accuracy was not great but I was able to call my misses. The interesting part is I was making my hits on the last target. Most of my misses were on the middle one. I was starting the transition to 3rd target too soon. I observed the same as above when I added the draw. Alphas on target 1 and 3 (most strings) but alpha-charlie for target 2. Need to work on this. I also set up an array of 2 paper and 4 steel targets at varying distances and lateral spaces. Worked on that for a bit. I found that I was definitely moving between targets much faster. One thing I did notice is that my grip on the draw was slop when doing this drill but not prior when I was doing the Blake drill. Odd. Slop only when drawing on open paper at 5 yards. First shot good but quick follow up, muzzle was flying. But then when I transitioned to steel or other paper, grip was good. I think I was just really pushing myself and not maintaining good grip. I plan on running these drills over the next few weeks both in dry and live fire as I already see tremendous value in them. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  9. I find it amusing the topics that we choose to debate. Something as simple as a query about the merits of videoing yourself and methods of doing so. Maybe the anti sentiment is regional. Around my parts, just about everyone records their runs. Either hatcam or 3rd party. Most of the guys I squad with are usuals so it's not an imposition if they ask me to record them. Me, my wife attends all my matches so she records my runs. She also volunteers to record others. Keep in mind, these are level 1 club matches. I think things change a bit when you're referring to larger matches. As for the suggestion of setting up a camera up range, it was a mere suggestion. Not something you'd do at every match nor every stage. Its something you would do more for the novelty of having video from a cool perspective of you and your friends shooting the same stage. Again. Dude asked for opinions on the merits of video and I gave him options. Its helped me to improve. And some of the biggest names in this sport advocate for the advantages of video recording oneself. I think we can all agree that there is a time and place to do so. Also goes without saying that it should never interfere with the flow of a match. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  10. Glad to hear you got it squared away. Yeah. So far I'm liking the flat trigger. Although, I've only done to dry fire sessions so jury is still out. I seem to get a cleaning pull with it even when hammering the DA on a fast draw. Also, it just feels better no matter where my finger is on the trigger. Doesn't matter if its higher or lower on the trigger face. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  11. Which CGW disco I you running? Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  12. Valid points all around. Especially about my classification. I out shoot almost all C class shooters at the matches and am often middle or low in the B class. My classifier scores are dismal. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  13. If you're running a gopro, hat cam mount is the probably the most practical. Is out of the way. Easy to start/stop recording and give a great 1st person perspective. If you want 3rd person, you can get one of those gorilla mounts and mount it some place up range that gives a good vantage but no risk of getting shot. Do this when you 1st get to the stage. Turn it on. Leave it till your squad is done. Take it down. Rinse and repeat on the next stage. Or you can just hand it to someone on your squad and have them film your run.

  14. I'm not sure who the heck shoots at your matches but I've never experienced what you describe. I will venture that who you describe, their actions have nothing to do with filming. They're just d-bags. Hat literally takes 1 second to push a button to start recording. This can be done while you're on deck. Another second to turn off recording. And as I mentioned earlier, 3rd person video is better. It takes no effort for the shooter or distract from resetting to hand your phone to someone in the squad to film your run.

  15. Received my trigger today. Installed it on the SP-01 without a hitch. Works well with the CGW Pro Kit. Timing is nice. Now gotta dry fire a bit to see how I like it.
