  1. How different are the drills in Anderson's Refinement and Repetition book from Stoegers Dry Fire Training book? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. I saw this video by Rob while binge watching YouTube videos. Gonna have to try it out. Seems like a great drill. Similar to Bill Drill but may be better to identify ones limits. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah. I bought some of those 1/3 scale targets as well. I am probably going to make a stencil for 1/2 scale target as well. So I used the cardboard, full sized targets I made in the OP the other day at the range. I didn't have any cardboard handy to make more but I had a roll of the paper used to line floors when painting. I made a few from it. Worked out pretty well. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. Hey Bimmer. Yeah. That's the way I shoot. Can you elaborate a bit more on what you see odd about my elbows? I've taken several shooting classes and no one has ever given me any feedback on my elbow placement. Would be helpful if you can share some visual aids of what you mean. EDIT... I think what you're noticing is that my elbows are not locked. Interesting, when I first started shooting, I would lock my elbows out. I was instructed by a few different people to not lock my elbows. I have seen arguments for both sides of this coin and they each argue for the same reason... recoil control. Elbow locked camp say that it allows for a firmer grip, thus keeping the gun from flipping up as much. The elbows bent camp argue that the less rigid elbows allow for some recoil absorption. As a new guy, I don't know who to listen to so I do whats most comfortable/natural. With elbows locked, I was felt so tensed up. But it was back when I less experienced so I was generally very tense when I shot. Any advice is much appreciated.
  5. OK. I watched the videos at quarter speed and I can see what you mean. I also noticed that my start position, I have my right hand resting further back than my left. Probably compensating for the holster position. I will move it further forward a bit. I think I still have plenty of room to stay within the Production rule for holster position.

  6. Move it more forward, toward my hip bone? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. Hey guys. So I've been working my draw to first shot. I posted a video several weeks back and got great feedback. Mainly to reduce unnecessary movement. Also to start prepping the trigger earlier. After a few weeks of dry fire and live fire practice, my draw has gotten much faster. Below are two videos. The first I have the par time set to 1.3 seconds. The second video I have it set to 1 second. I still see a bit of movement in my head, specifically when I punch the gun out. Not sure if this is normal or stil should be improved. No matter what I try I can't seem to rid that movement when I speed up my draw. Not sure if you guys see anything else I can do to improve it.

  8. Thanks Brian. I will be sure to do this drill next time I am at the range. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. Is BE still responding to with the 2nd part of this drill? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. This topic is very relevant right now for me. I don't know if I'm doing this right or wrong. When I'm at home, dry firing indoors, I'm able to remain very focused on my front sight. Transitioning from one target to another, I shift my sight to the next target and I can see a very clean sight picture. This change a bit when I go live fire practice. Today was the first time I was able to train at an outdoor range in 3 weeks. I've been dry firing daily so I was excited to see the results. I was getting my shots on target at 7 and 10 yards, doing transitions but my front sight was more of a blur. Focus was more on target. Again, hitting my shots but not getting that clean sight picture I get in dry fire. I slowed down and then I see it. So... should I slow down to get that clean sight picture if I am able to make the shot faster with not so great of a sight picture at shorter distances, 10 yards and under?

  11. I plan to do the same with shipping boxes. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Hey all. So I had some time to kill and a huge TV box to break down for recycle. Asked myself, "Why not make some targets out of that thing?" So after a couple of minutes of Googling and about an hour of my time, I was able to make a reusable stencil and 6 targets out of this I had laying around and the TV box I was gonna throw away. Here's how: 1. Download the official dimensions of an IPSC target. 2. Marked up a piece of 20"x30" foam core to the required dimensions and then used a straight edge and utility knife to cut it out. 3. Cut the TV box in half and traced out the outline of the stencil onto the cardboard box pieces. 4. Used a straight edge and utility knife to cut out the targets along the lines I traced out. 5. Profit!! Now that I have the stencil, I can reuse boxes I get from deliveries to make targets. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Good point. I will start incorporating some drills to practice stages where the start requires you to immediately move towards the first target array. I can get a pretty consistent grip on my stationary draw and even when facing up range and turning but I have practiced much with drawing while on the move. Will work on it.

  14. Thanks for posting the video. Been drilling daily in dry fire and one of the things I've been checking is my NPA with my eyes closed. What I mean is I draw with eyes closed, then open to see if my sights are on target. It's amazing what just a couple of weeks of daily, 30 minute dry fire sessions have done for this. Gonna test everything this Sunday in live fire. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. I've been working on drills where I'm moving in different directions to develop more awareness of where my muzzle is pointed. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
