    Practice session round count

    This is great advice. There have been too many times I intended to just shoot 50 or 100 rounds but quit too soon just as I was hitting my stride. I usually start and end each session with the 5x5 drill and the second one is always much better because I've warmed up. In a match, or especially a self defense situation, we always start cold, and that's how I work on my initial workouts, from the beginning. ________________ I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

    Practice session round count

    Isn't that similar to asking whether one is better off doing 25 sit-ups a day or a 175 sit-ups once a week? I'm no expert, but my experience has been more frequent practice sessions, concentrating on just one or two drills per session, pays higher dividends than cramming a lot of work into one marathon session. When I get tired I get sloppy and hit the threshold of diminishing returns after an hour or so. I also try for 15 minutes of dry fire a day, obviously cheaper and more convenient than live fire. Just my 2¢. ________________ I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

    Grip Tape

    Bicycle innertube. Tried grip tape, anti-skid tape, skateboard tape - most lasted a month or two (I do a lot of dry fire). This does the trick for me. ________________ I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

    Draw speed

    This is very welcome advice. I'm not a competition shooter, and compared to what others are posting as slow pokes, I shouldn't even be in the room. About six months ago I decided I should either get serious and stop wasting time and ammo or just find something else to do. Playing around and just punching holes in paper and plinking tin cans was getting boring and expensive. I had no plan. To "get better" is a fuzzy goal resulting in an even fuzzier strategy. Anyway, I've begun incorporating the above advice in my dry fire routine to help establish a baseline and an accurate measure of progress. Amazing what 15 minutes a day can accomplish. Thanks! _________________________ I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

    Draw speed

    I'm certainly no math whiz, but wouldn't that be the other way around? If dry fire is 20% slower, wouldn't 1.2sec dry fire = 1sec live fire? I know I dry fire practice at a MUCH slower pace to concentrate on each aspect, from garmnt clear to grasp to draw to grip to sight alaingment to trigger press - and everything in between. Live fire confirms what I've been practicing in dry fire. Repetition > Refinement > Reinforcement. Wyatt Earp: "You have to learn to go slow in a hurry." Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
