Wondering if anyone could shed some light. I pretty recently switched to a safariland ALS holster for the active retention. (For the record, Wasn't too happy with the fitting. Had to do a crap ton of adjustment and dremeling to get my STI to fit, which I had called in and confirmed that it was the correct holster for it). However, now that it does fit, I've noticed over the last month of shooting and dry fire that there is significant wear on my front sight post (specifically the frontward portion of it). I can only assume this is because it's dragging all the way up the retention s
I started this sport a little late in life at 49, and now 5 years into it, I can see why they set the age for senior at 55. I can definitely feel old age starting to creep up… Honestly, I always thought it would be great to make Master I but never really thought it would be possible. Last year I made production A class and spent a day and a half with Shannon Smith, and I think reaching Master just may be possible.

If my belt wiggles at all, the holster grabs the gun a bit and I have to wrestle it out. Looke
The long debated and discussed subject of WHICH target to draw to, has finally been settled for me via live fire experimentation today. In match performances, I have almost exclusively planned to draw to an easy target in situations where 1) we can shoot from the starting position and location and should do so, and 2) in that first array there is another easy target to shoot while leaving. This is not regarding stages where steps must be taken before engaging the initial target - those are another, different controversial subject! Now this will not apply to ALL stages/situations even ones
