  1. Please share your results with TG. Very interested. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. I'm good with any profile although I am able to run flat nose bullets a bit longer in my CZs. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Just bought both of them. LoL Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. I was just about to order his Skills and Drills Reloaded. Do you recommend Practical Accuracy over this? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. Lightfoot... do you guys have any plans of making a 135gr. 9mm projectile? I didn't see it offered on the site. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. I think what I'm really trying to figure out is where I draw the line for match mode. I may be over thinking this. What I don't want to do is use "safe mode" as my match mode. What I mean is I don't want to regress to playing it safe during a match. I want to push myself. Find that line and walk it where I'm safe, in control, but moving fast, transition fast, etc but still making acceptable hits. That's all on me. You guys can't really help me figure this out . I guess I was just looking for some help to conceptualize it. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. Good to hear you got it worked out. No worse feeling than thinking you took a perfectly working firearm and made it inoperable by tinkering with it to make it "better". I think most of us have been through it. Fortunately, its usually something simple that needs tweaking. Looking forward to hearing your first range report with it.

  8. Thanks. I have Ben's older book. Will check out his new one. I have taken Def-tac classes but never a competition centered claas. I plan to for sure. I don't mind spending on good training. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. My goal is to be A class by end of this year. A lofty goal since I only shot my first match in January and I shot a gun the 1st time 3 years ago. But it's the goal I set for myself. I can do it if I stay committed to putting in the work. Thank you for the explanation. I've listened to a couple of Anderson's podcasts that he has shared for free. I think he has a subscription that I plan on buying. You explanation does help. Especially the speed mode description. I think the key is still maintaining some control to call your shots. Not going so fast that your just throwing lead down range. I like the idea of using shot up targets. As I said, one of the hardest things for me so far, mentally, is accepting hits outside the A zone. Even in practice. I'm learning to but it's still hard not to get hung up on it and slow down. A shot up target will help. Thanks. I think I've read the 85% before but not sure. I shoot Production. Plan to stick with it for a while so I know I need to shoot better than the guys in my squad that run major. This helps me to gauge where I need to be. What's great is that I'm seeing consistent improvement in my shooting. Both speed and accuracy. However, I know I'm on the steep part of the learning curve right now and as I get better, the incremental improvements will be harder to come by. I want to make sure I am practicing correctly. Appreciate the help. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. Hey all. Not sure this is the correct sub forum to post his in but here goes. I've been working hard in DF and LF to improve my shooting. Have been using the concept of Accuracy vs. Speed vs. Match mode. I'm pretty new to the sport so I'm struggling to know if my Speed mode is actually Speed mode and not Match mode pace. There is a speed I can run where I get almost all Alphas. This is obviously too slow. This is Accuracy mode. But then there is what I think is Speed mode where I'm pushing my transitions and stuff so I'm throwing Charlies and the occasional Delta BUT... Is this really Speed mode? I'm trying to get over this idea that I'm gonna shoot all alphas. I admit that I get disappointed when I see charlies. I know Charlies are ok. But at what point are you getting too many charlies on a stage? I get that its gonna depend on the stage... partials, distance, swingers, etc. But in general. Or maybe I'm focusing on the wrong thing here. If I am, please set me straight. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. So I thought I would update you all on progress since you guys really stepped in with encouraging words and tips. Today, I was able to hit 1.1 sec par time on about 7 out of 10 reloads. 1.2 sec I can hit consistently now. If you recall, I was at 1.4 when I made this post. Couple of things I did that I think helped. First, I replaced my mag release with a Shadow 2 mag release. I think that shaved at least 1/10th off my time at least. I no longer have to adjust my grip slightly to reach it with the stock SP01 release. The other thing I did that I think helped is incorporating the Burkett load. Breaking the movement down into individual components and practicing each helped to really fine tune my movements. Lastly, I worked in slower reloads as well. What I did was start with a 2 sec par time. Run 2 sets at that time. Reduce by a tenth, run 2 sets. Rinse and repeat until I hit the point where I'm sloppy. Then back it up and practice at that time for a few sets. This has helped me stay relaxed it seems. When I tense up, it all goes to s#!t. LOL Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Tremendous help. I would say that dry fire practice has done more to improve my shooting than live fire. Unless I have a range in my backyard and unlimited ammo, there is no way I can practice enough in live fire. Dry fire allows me to practice 4 or 5 times a week at home. I can focus on running specific drills to improve aspects of my shooting. Dry fire has even helped to learn to shoot with both eyes open. Pick up my sights much quicker. Other fundamentals.

  13. I follow the dry fire drills in Ben Stoegers dry fire book. I also do them in live fire. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Awesome. You should be fine then. As I said, I shot my first match in January. I shot my first pistol 3 years ago so I had a steep learning curve. I had a fantastic time at my first match. I read all the rules, several times, especially the safety rules. Just take your time and listen to the RO's instructions. Take your time and have fun. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. And this! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
