  1. 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 system inside the safariland. IMAGE LINK HERE: https://imgur.com/a/j8AV6Kf My question is, is this normal? Do any of you have wear like this on your front sight? My main point of concern isn't necessarily the plastic, but the metal square nut that actually holds the ALS mechanism into the holster. I think now that the wear has actually rounded and smoothed out the front tip, that it's not actually catching as bad anymore, but I could be wrong. I appreciate the input, thank you!!
  2. I've been playing with where I direct my attention right before the buzzer goes off. I started off, like most people, staring at the first target that I'd engage, but then I started to wonder if that was what was making me not have a clear sight picture when my gun came into view (changing focal planes). So now I stare at the ground, about 5 feet in front of me, at nothing in particular. What I'm waiting for is my gun to come into view so that I can follow the sights up to the target. But lately, I've been shooting Steel Challenge and wonder if not looking at the target is slowing down my first shot times. I seem to be going back and forth on this, maybe because I don't have any real empirical data to back it up. Anyone done any testing with this?
  3. Topic says it all. I'm looking at the Hiviz FO front sight for a CZ-75 (http://www.hivizsights.com/product/cz2005/) and wondering if it would fit a Witness Match. Any ideas out there? Not looking for guarantees but for best guesses. My old eyes aren't that great any more and I need as much help focusing on that front sight as I can get. This looks like it might be pretty bright. I can't find any similar posts on this topic so I'm starting this one. Thanks.
  4. Hi all The front sight of my Witness flew off yesterday. I was in a grassy field, it's done for. I'm talking with Dawson Precision on getting a replacement but I don't know the height of the sight it shipped with. Does anyone know the height dimensions of that sight? I really need help.
  5. I've had a Mossberg 930 JM Pro for about 6 months and finally patterned it to see exactly where it is shooting. I found that it shoots high even after lowering the stock with the factory-supplied shims. So, I would like to raise the front sight by replacing the factory sight with an aftermarket, but have not been able to find one. Anyone know of an aftermarket fiber optic front sight I can put on the JM Pro? I believe the factory sight screws off, so ideally I would like a taller sight that I can screw in, rather than gluing a sight to the rib. Thanks in advance for any info.
  6. Hi everyone, i posted this topic a couple weeks back in the "introduce yourself" section and wanted to see if maybe i re-posted it in here it might grab someones attention - thank s for looking, and for any help offered! -Chase M. Posted 26 March 2013 - 10:29 AM Hi everyone, I’m a newbie here but have been lurking on the forum for a few months trying to gather tips whenever, wherever I can. I just finished Brian’s book and to say I am inspired would be a tremendous understatement. Who would have thought the concepts, ideas and strategies he thought up 20+ years ago would still be just as relevant as they are today! (Thank you again, Brian) So on to my latest road block - Shooting groups from 18-25+ yards-freehand(I mean standing with both hands).Before you all beat me up too bad - I am following the steps as have been outlined by the master - started out shooting at nothing at all, just the berm. Got comfortable enough to "see" what I needed to see when I needed to see it given the circumstance (shooting at a berm with no target) and felt it was time to move on to bench rest shooting. I stayed on that damn bench until I could get my 2.5-3" groups at 20-25Yds consistently with little or no flyers on most given days. Relying on mechanics, eyes open, calling the shot as best I could see it, following through- everything was working well from the bench. So I moved on...I went in steps- started at 5 yards, moved to 10 then on to 15 and after that is where things started to change...Drastically. I observed that at about 18-20+ yards my fundamentals begin to deteriorate rapidly. I am overcome by "thought" rather than "action" - immediately I am doing mental checks on ALL my fundamentals - stance, grip, pressures, relaxed stomach, FRONT SIGHT, EYES OPEN, trigger, call the shot - EVERYTHING! And its during that time my form just goes to complete shit. I’m anticipating the shot/recoil, losing the front sight, incorrectly calling my shots; it’s just the worst feeling ever. So my remedy when this is happening is to first observe that it is happening and go back to what’s comfortable and easy (I know what a puss) moving it back to 7 yards, 10 yards 15 yards and guess what - as soon as work back up to the 20-25 yard range - it’s the same problem! It’s almost like at that distance (20-25 yds.) my mind flips this anxiety/doubt switch that on some days it literally seems impossible to overcome so i resort back to bench resting, or moving back to 10-15 yards and usually end up leaving the range feeling very unaccomplished and pretty bummed out... Sorry for the rant! Please know I am not looking for that "one special answer" I was really hoping just to get your guys opinions, possibly some tips and maybe some shared similar experiences if at all applicable or relevant to my situation. Thank you everyone in advance for taking the time to read and/or respond all input is much appreciated! Make it a great day everyone!! -Chase M.
  7. Dear folks, After shooting for a while, I still have questions on basic things that different people do differently. My questions are as follows: 1. When attempting first shot in double action, do you start staging the trigger before acquiring a perfect sight picture (i.e. front sight acquired, is in line with target, but notch has not yet been brought up), or do you get your sight picture and then deliver a smooth trigger pull in a single uninterrupted effort? 2. This is a general question about shooting with iron sights. When you bring up your gun to acquire the sight picture, is it better to first acquire the front sight over the target and then bring up the notch, or to "muzzle" the gun onto target (i.e. push forward without angling the front sight up first) relying on proprioception from previous drills, before acquiring a sight picture, with the intent of getting a "blade-notch complex" without purposefully acquiring the front sight first? To put it differently: do you acquire the front sight before it is in the notch? 3. At what height relative to the torso should the shooter's hands meet to complete a two handed gun grip? Should the weak hand be participating in any lifting movement of the gun close to the body? Hope this doesn't sound too complicated and that people can share their experiences. Thanks, Lior.
