  1. Do you have experience shooting pistol and if so what hand were you using before? Don't switch. Being left handed if that is what you're used to for other shooting types isn't a detractor. Yeah some holsters are harder to find but that is about it.
  2. DON'T SWITCH HANDS! DON'T DO ANYTHING CRAZY! All you need is reps to develop your natural index....Just up your dry and live fire, draw to one shot and live fire pair until it is instinctual. Where is Tim Herron when you need him.
  3. I am left handed but right eye dominant. This problem is really not as complicated or debilitating as people think. It will take reps and time for your natural index to develop and be quick, make no mistake about it but it is not bad at all. Make your draw to one shot part of your daily dry fire and you won't even notice in a few weeks as it will be natural. Do that drill for 3-4 minutes straight daily. I promise you will see any hesitancy go away.
  4. 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
  5. I've done it for my 2011, shoot!
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?

  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. Could be a few things. Is this only happening at speed? You could be tensing your whole hand when trying to shoot quickly which causes your shots to he pushed left for righties and right for lefties. I have been guilty of doing exactly this and found it during Vogel's world class pistol course. The other thing you might be doing is attempting to look over your sights to see the target to look at your hits. This will be prominent when you get close and that is increasingly possible.

  18. I do not have dedicated dry fire mags. Not richy rich enough for all of that. Just like IHAVEGAS said. summed it up
  19. I load the same rounds on my press just without primers and powder for my dummy rounds and leave them in their own area and never mix them with live ammo but of course check them all prior to loading anyway.
  20. Definitely load the mags with dummy rounds, preferably ones with brass casings instead of like snap caps. The weight does matter and makes a difference.
  21. I could see it being at least somewhat worthwhile in that accord if you combined it with a laser training program. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  22. I used one for my glock pistol for a while and I would not recommend it for pistol at all. It is terrible for that as you start to look for the laser instead of focusing on sights and follow on shots and it's only one shot. Trusting your sights and calling your shots would suit you better in that regard. What kind of shooting are you looking to improve with this? Three gun, PRS, or just to get better?
