Barefoot Shooter Posted August 19, 2010 Share Posted August 19, 2010 (edited) I thought I would start this diary about 2 months ago, but have had some issues getting registered on the site, so I will actually do some catching up from a range diary I have kept for a couple of months. I have shot IDPA for about 18 months now and had grown extremely frustrated over the lack of progress. I don't shoot USPSA, I'd like to sometime, it looks like fun as well. I decided to devote more time to practice and to try and be more organized in my practice. I also decided to take a few lessons locally which have helped. I have had a decent amount of pistol training, it has always been geared to defensive shooting and never classes specific to shooting sports. I'd like to find one some time but they seem to be few and far between. My own assessment of the last two months is pretty mixed. There are many days it is just beyond me to do some dry work before bed. Range time is often at a premium as well. I don't know that I have improved much in terms of getting a practice routine for live fire practice or dry fire. I'm currently classified as a marksman shooting SSP. I occasionally shoot my 1911 and hold the same marksman classification in CDP (barely), but 99% of the time I shoot SSP. About 3 months ago I switched from my edc Glock 17 to a Glock 34 to use in IDPA. It has been an adjustment to say the least. I am not a gun switcher so I will succeed or fail with this gun for at least the next several years. I enjoy the sport, I look forward to it, I just cannot stand to shoot so poorly. My local range usually has an IDPA match every Saturday morning, I'm lucky, I get to do this a lot. I also believe that generally speaking I shoot with a lot of good shooters. They do very well in regional or statewide matches as a group. They are also a good group to shoot with, the day this becomes stressful or an irritation I'll give it up. My current equipment setup: Glock 34 Sevigny Competition sights plain rear, serrated black front .245 Comp-tac belt holster Wilderness belt 2 single Comp-tac mag pouches Gorilla tape on the grip I reload, my current round for IDPA 124 grain M.G. CMJ 4.2 grains Titegroup 1.135 target OAL Mixed range brass I'd welcome any comments, constructive or otherwise.
