did alot of dry fire this week since I picked up a CZ TSO to get used to tracking out of the holster and reloads. Noticed that im not looking into the magwell when doing reloads, this works well when im shooting for grins but at speed i was hitting the bottom of the magwell going in. Did some burkett drills looking into the magwell and have reduced the number of failed mag changes.
saturday i went out and worked on shooting on the move as well as leaving a shooting position aggressively and being ready to shoot upon arrival.
Set 2 3x3 shooting boxes with 3 targets and steel. Shooting areas were 10 feet apart and I did variations but all were 2 on each then steel move to the next area and repeat. Did 10 with no reload and 10 with a reload between the boxes, and 10 while shooting the full array moving between the boxes. Then did the array backwards, forwards left and right while moving slowly.
shot an all classifier yesterday. It was 50-50, shot half the stages where I expected to be (high C low B ) the other half I blew.
1st stage had 3 strings, string one went well 5 alphas 3 charlies. string 2, forgot the lock on my holster and lost composure and raced the clock, 4 mikes and 4 charlies, continues to stew and threw another mike, 2 alphas and a charlie....
2nd stage there was a long walk to the bay so i had time to relax and shot half decent, with a high c score. This was six in six and i think if I would have focused on hits instead of trying to be cool and get 12 shots in 6 seconds with a reload at my level. Lesson learned.
3rd stage low B, happy with the score at my current level
4th stage 3-v, have no clue what happened. I came out of the holster and first shots were on targets but all high and second shots were all mikes. I think I just rushed it and broke the trigger as soon as i caught the front site, not when the front site was in the channel... another .XX% crap stage.
5th stage was a repeat of stage one with full size instead of classic targets. I was also the first shooter..... kept thinking about stage one and managed to screw this stage up as well with 8 procedurals since it was draw fire 1 round on each target reload and 1 on each... i put 2 on each the first string.... FML
6th stage shot a high B.
Stage 1 and 5 were mental 100% stage 4 i think i just shot too fast for the position i was in (hard lean around a door) and threw the shots.
Biggest take aways,
If you mess up, ignore it and move forward. After words dissect what happened and why, then find out how to avoid it and prevent it in the future.
When shooting in off awkward/off balance positions slow down and dont shoot above your skill level.
Points beat getting all your shots off in a par time with NPM when the par time is quick.
This week i plan on continuing to work on dry fire training. If i'm not working through the weekend or out of town for work I will be doing positional shooting around barricades as well as work at 25 yards a bit. Will also continue to work on getting out of and into position as that is where im losing the most time.
