  1. On occasion, not everytime, when I manually rack the slide the hammer will fall into half cock and is damaging my sear. What could be the cause of this? Does not happen in live fire on manually racking the slide on occasion. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. I've done it for my 2011, shoot!
  3. Have you listened to Steve Anderson's podcast on speed mode? It gives good ideas and insights into this training idea. The idea is to give up paying close attention to your accuracy but work on speed solely. Then as you get used to that speed and it becomes the new normal, accuracy will start becoming more prominent as it becomes routine. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. Funny you say that because that is exactly how I am retraining my grip. Still working on it. But it is becoming more natural but it's absolutely still in its infancy. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. I think relaxing my strong hand grip would help to solve this problem theoretically but that's another aspect that I have been struggling with. I suppose what I really need to do is, like you said Lastcat, is start from the basics and rebuild it from the groun up doing it correctly. That podcast episode by Kim was great as well as the one with Eric Grauffel (spelling?). I also had listened to the shoot fast podcast where Joel Park has talked about having to relax his strong hand as he was having the same issue. I was wondering if there were other ways to potentially train it out without starting from the ground up, but it seems not.
  6. EDIT TO TITLE: I meant to say Can't seem to get RID OF sympathetic strong hand tensioning with trigger pull. and to add....I am left handed and this is causing my sights to move and throw shots to the right when shooting at speed. I can pull the trigger and not disturb sight picture/ alignment fine but when I get into a match and start rocking and rolling I go back into the old habit for some reason.
  7. For the life of me I cannot seem to train out of my strong hand the tensing of my entire hand when pulling the trigger. It has been my biggest problem in shooting and I always overcame it by support hand grip pressure instead of solving the problem. Does anyone have any advice/exercises/drills that can help train out this bad habit?

  9. Yeah so if you get your support hand there faster and get your full grip you can start prepping the trigger faster...you shouldn't have the problem of ADing with that DA first pull dry firing and getting it down will prevent any of that. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. First I would suggest getting a dropped and offset or at least a drop for that holster. Check out the boss hanger. Second if you tilt the holster back as in like this \ instead of like this / it will be easier to get your grip and not have to chicken wing your arm out so much. Third. Get your support hand there sooner so you can have that grip established and start prepping your trigger sooner. Doing good though! Keep it up! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. Interesting...So if you were using other magazines you would have to notch them yourself. The Mitchell though makes it so you wouldn't have to notch the other side of mags am I understanding that?
  12. Can someone describe to me how the SVI grip does the right side mag release? Is the slot for the mag catch just on the other side? Edited by Grumpyone to remove WTB reference.
  13. I've also recently been listening to all of these, what seems to me, new ideas on grip. It is making me reassess and rebuild grip and I'm excited to see what it produces. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
