  1. I found for me Its more in the sharpness of the transition. if i try to go smooth and slower I over transition more, If I snap to the A-zone as hard as I can I tend to stop and get better hits. Also realizing that a 5yard transition on a 5yard target is NOT like a 5yard transition on a 15yard target made a difference. I know that last part sounds silly but The longer targets is where I noticed myself milking the transition instead of being Aggressive and ending up with Alpha charlie or Alpha Delta. More often now I end up shooting too early and getting the opposite Charlie Alpha.
  2. I'll toss in some sci-fi book series that I have really enjoyed. The Inheritance series by Christopher paolini Monster Hunter international by Larry Correia A song of fire and ice by RR Martin The legend of Drizzt by r.a. Salvador And books by Timothy Zahn( Star wars nerd here) My next post here will be nonfiction titles
  3. .356 sized 147g flat point, 1.130 oal, 131-33PF gun dependant, 3.3gr Alliant Sport Pistol
  4. For the thumb rest I would recommend trying to put a piece of grip tape on it. But that is not where your hand is actually slipping. Your support hand is most likely loosening up on the longer strings and you are seeing it in the thumb placement. I noticed this happening myself recently and the only thing that helped me was mentally reminding myself to continually crush with the left hand while running the stage. This might take away from your concentration on something else during the stage but after a match or 2 just focusing on this, It should alleviate itself for the most part. After your make ready and right before you shoot the stage, try saying to yourself I will crush my support hand grip and use my sights. Then at that point let it all "go" and just shoot the stage. I have started to see inprovements in my shooting by doing this recently.
  5. We all seem to want to loose a few pounds for the new year. Over the course of last year I put on 22lbs. My goal is to Drop that by summer of this year. My lifting schedule needs to be more consistant and I want to add in some HIIT or cardio training on a regular basis. Uspsa goals are simple, Get back to a regular dry fire routine of 3-5 days. Get my ass out of B-class, and finally start some live fire training( not just going to the range 1x month and shooting) other then Matches. I plan on shooting 3-4 area/sectionals this year and really want to be prepared for it. I also want to pick up a backup shadow2 so I dont have to worry as much. Keep at it everyone and Lets make it our best year yet
  6. I compete with the shadow 2. I carry P365 at 4 Oclock most times with the occasional Appendix
  7. Thanks for the info. The company asked me to bring it in to be looked at. I have decided to to go with it and use the pistol for what it is, a tool for shooting. Thanks again
  8. i definately finding the competition kit interesting. i will have to look into it
  9. thanks everyone for their opinions. I am going to talk to the company who did the cerakote. I am not expecting anything from them, just conformation that this Is what I should expect and Ill let it Wear.
  10. here is the holster wear after only 20-30 draws. I dont mind wear but I just thought this was excessive for the amount of use
  11. I recently had my shadow 2 Cerakoted. I had the urban gray and it was flaking off something serious. I get the pistol back from the store, take it home, and reassemble. A couple days go by and I finally have time to Dryfire. 1 Dryfire session and the magwell looks like this and cerakote has started to come off the front from holster wear. I thought cerakote was more durable then this. For what it cost I would have had the gun finished a different way, unless this is considered excessive wear.
  12. I second the 11.5b main spring. I run a 10lb recoil spring with my 147gr heads. I know a few that run 11lb recoil springs. I recommend you try out the 2 springs and see which one helps bring the nose of the gun back to where it left from with out undo dipping or having to be forceed back.
  13. computer double posted sorry
  14. Great work, I have been toying with the Idea of building my next pistol vs buying. I have been torn between 191 and 2011. you may have swayed my hand a bit.
  15. Really nice work, my shadow 2 frame is out getting cerakoted right now. I couldnt stand that the polycoat was Flaking(wear doesnt bother me). So off to cerakote. Ill try sharing a picture when i get it back.
