  1. guess it depends how desperate you are. Id send it and buy an airsoft open gun. When I was in Iraq we only had a range part of our deployment. But the time I didn't I was doing about 1.5-2 hours of dry fires a day with my a limited set up. You could do a SIRT pistol but in my opinion theyre not similar enough in feel. And If youre shooting limited I think they could cause bad training scars focusing on the laser...instead of the sights. And theyre pretty expensive as well. I think you can get more bang for your buck with an airsoft pistol.
  2. Mine was at an 8 about 3 months ago. Once you get over 10 its starts to get concerning. If youre into the teens its pretty bad. And over 20 youre going to most likely see issues with memory and other health problems. But with an 8 Public health here hit me up and I had to go in for an interview and a follow up. I still have to go in to get retested. A larger concern is if you have anyone pregnant in the home or children. Theyre way more vulnerable to lead exposure than fully grown adults. I told them I wasn't going to stop shooting and couldn't really. But we discussed precautions to take and preventative measures. I would try not to shoot indoor anymore if you can help it. But any match youre shooting youre creating a lead particulate. And most of the time if youre moving, like most stages, youre moving into that particulate. And inhaling almost atomized lead dust. Getting it on your clothing. And skin. So what britinUSA said. Take some precautions before eating smoking and dipping. I would not eat anything while shooting. If you do bring de-lead wipes and use them thoroughly prior to ingesting anything. At the end of a range session use the wipes before you leave the range. Its one of the things I add to my routine now. I would use jacketed bullets if you can. Helps with the exposure while reloading. And wear gloves while reloading if you can. Id like to add something BritinUSA said. Wash your range clothes separate and use a de-lead detergent. Keep range bags and things like that separate from your regular living quarters especially if ya got kids around.

  4. lol yea bro...this is 2019! maybe we should start another thread lol
  5. I'm registered. Havent squadded yet though.
  6. Dothan Gun Club is a good one. So I second that. Then CORE in Florida is pretty good as well. That's pretty far for me. But a lot of guys I know drive north to Dothan from that area. I drive south from the fort benning area to shoot there. And then there is also The Range Project. Which I know they do some matches. Otherwise to my knowledge its a private range...I could be wrong on that though.
  7. I do the brocks string, as well as another one our human performance guy suggested. Basically its a grid matrix printed on an 8x11" piece of paper, and then a scaled down one. You put the big one on the wall, and hold the smaller one. They have different letters in different spots. Basically go down a column or across a row, alternating between the small one and the large scale one. So you have to focus on the small one, identify the letter, then look at the big one, identify the letter, and alternate and keep working your way across a row or down a column.
  8. I’ve been considering getting one of the Sig Sauer MpX airsoft Gun just for practice in my back yard. I live in a neighborhood so it would be pretty useful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ok. So. Right shouldered freestyle with sight picture. 1) engage safety 2) left hand goes to mag well (Charlie Sheen navy seal) 3) switch the whole gun over to 4) right hand grabs hand guard as far forward as possible 5) Left hand grabs pistol grip 6) re engage safety 7) start squirting bullets all over the place. Oh and something I forgot to mention. When you grab the mag well change your foot stance. So instead of left foot forward you want to go right foot forward. I try to maintain a pretty neutral stance when shooting carbines or whatever butttt you wanna make this a habit so you’re more squared up and able to transition a bit better through an array while maintain a better NPA Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yes! What this guy said. I do ben stoegers stuff out of his dry fire and dry fire Reloaded book. And I apply that to PCC. So if it’s a classifier type drill where you shoot freestyle then change hands and go weak hand I apply that and do it. But a lot of hard left leans it’s much faster to switch shoulders coming into position, shooting that array all lefty and switching again when you can soak it up in movement. I see righties sit there trying to act like gymnasts trying to lean out all pretzeled up takin 3-5 seconds to shoot an array cause they simply refuse to shoot lefty PCC. Also make sure you’re engaging the safety and then switching shoulders. Ahem. Don’t ask me how I learned this the hard way [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Sounds awesome. My buddy made a 357 PCC. Thing is sick. Suppressed too. He brought it out hog hunting the other day. Had no issues [emoji869] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I usually just take Stoegers drills, do 50% 50% of the time split doing limited and pcc. I basically just do the same drills for PCC. Obviously change the par times a bit. I try to work a lot of transitional work with the rifle. I feel it takes the most time. Having to break the gun off your shoulder and getting it shouldered again, into position. I try to work a lot of shooting while moving too.
  13. the active visualization is extremely important. I shoot a lot of 3 gun. Or shoot 2 divisions per local match here. PCC and limited. For 3 gun it helped my USPSA stage planning a lot because some stages its 3 different guns, and for shotgun sometimes its birdshot and slugs on top of that. So trying to stage plan for that got pretty complicated at times. And shooting 2 USPSA divisions per local helps as well. PCC id switch stage plans up when I could. Or when id see a stage that could possibly be ran 1 of 2 ways it was interesting to see how the times would change running limited vs pcc. But it helped with what I started calling match endurance, basically the ability to shoot consistently for 12 stages at a local match. And that helped me with larger area or section matches. Long story short, I get a lot of mental reps on the stages. And that's what you have to do. Just get the mental reps. Often I'll take a stage in sections. Like if there is a complicated section or array ill walk that portion a few more times than the rest of the stage to ensure I wont f*#k it up. But for you over running ports, it may just be what youre using as a reference for your shooting position. You can use spots on the walls, ground, or even specific targets on an array to index. I know some guys that count steps from position to positions (one of my buddies that is a really talented GM production shooter). But I do not. I do however visualize exactly what my sights need to look like on specific targets. Especially hard partials. Basically my buddy that counts steps between positions told me he started refining and getting a lot more in depth on what his visualization and walk throughs look like. So he started doing steps etc as well. I shot the Fort Benning multigun match and watched Jerry Miculek shoot it. And we took note of his ritual prior to stepping up and shooting a stage. At least 3 shooters prior he would go off to the safety area by himself. And you could tell he was mentally visualizing his stage plan over and over in his head. By watching him you could tell he'd do this at least 3-5 times.
  14. couple things you might be doing. You're shooting the dot. Like trying to look at the dot like iron sights. And trying to refine it too much. Or expecting the dot to look perfect. Make sure youre target focused when shooting. You should really only be seeing a blur of the dot from time to time. But the difference with shooting irons is some of the variations in grip and all that or sight picture (sight focused), you may not be able to notice it because the variation is such a minute amount (in equal height equal light). So visually you cant really tell s#!t is off kilter but it is. With a dot this is much more apparent. So to fix this, don't expect perfection, just learn over time to realize whats acceptable. Practice target transitions while sitting flat footed. And make sure you're maintaining the target focused visualization. Only barely picking up the dot when it comes into your line of sight as necessary. And then practice position transition. breaking grip and then coming back into a position and regaining the dot. With the draw, I know a few guys that had a lot of issues picking up the dot off the draw. Especially if it involved a step or two, or a draw to a lean. So id practice the clock method or the box method. So draw while stepping to the positions of a clock and then work your way around the clock to ensure you can pick it up while stepping into any position.
