  1. I use the Peltor 500s, and added the gel ear seals. I double up with these earplugs: https://www.amazon.com/3M-OCS1135-Yellow-Neons-Earplugs/dp/B008MCUOH2/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=ear+plugs+3M+foam&qid=1608057880&sr=8-6 That setup offers great noise protection, and the ability to have a conversation. They have been durable for me, and I've used (lightly abused!) them a bunch, over the last two years. Both when shooting, and doing yard work. The headband is annoying (the style on 100s is much better, but those only offer a 22dB NRR), but I fixed that by adding one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B079WV2KN3?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title With the headband cover they are comfortable to wear all day long.
  2. Thanks. I am in the same ammo drought as everyone else. So, I'm doing lots of dry fire, just a tiny bit of dry fire, and only shooting one match a month. I'm getting all the reloading gear together slowly, studying up on procedures/techniques, and hoping things will ease up in a few months, and I'll be able to actually starting loading my own stuff.
  3. Thank you I needed to read that. I've been frustrated because I've been stuck at a fairly consistent 1.6s draw to first shot in dry fire, and while I can occasionally shave a couple tenths off that, I haven't made any real progress in a couple months. I will confess that I've been obsessed with getting a faster draw to first shot time. I think you are right, and probably make more overall progress if I devote more time to other skills. Thanks.
  4. I'm the same way. I had very poor instruction when I first shot handguns (USAF CATM instructors are way behind the times!). I was repeatedly told i jad to shoot Weaver, and that i would never shoot well due to "cross dominance issues.". It was BS. Later, I got some quality instruction, and was told just put the pistol up in front of the dominant eye and go to work. I ended up with the left foot slightly forward, and my headed turned a little to the right. My shooting rapidly improved once I realized cross dominance is not a big deal. I think the issue of eye dominance is overblown. Really, when is the last time someone who isn't cross dominant worried about eye dominance when shooting " weak hand?" Ever heard an instructor mention eye dominance when teaching someone who is not cross dominant about shooting "weak hand?" I've got a LOT of room for improvement in my shooting, but cross dominance is absolutely the least of my concerns.
  5. Just wanted to say hello. I'm in my late 40s, but just starting out with USPSA shooting. I'd also like to get into reloading, to help facilitate doing more live fire training, and maybe develop a good load for use in matches (assuming I can get good enough that shooting something other than cheapest bulk ammo available will make a difference!
