cwsanfor Posted January 30, 2012 Share Posted January 30, 2012 Despite shooting about 1,000 rounds a month for almost two years, I am not where I want to be with accuracy. I finished in the middle of the pack at a GSSF match, and shoot okay, but not as well as several I know who shoot less. I think I have issues with trigger control (often low and left). I have tried to focus on the Enos/Leatham/IPSC/Combat approach, have studied Matt Burkett's videos and much material on the web. I've tried my trigger centered on the pad of my trigger finger, as well as Mas Ayoob's "power crease" position, read Enos's book twice, etc. I use the currently canonical isosceles stance, but wonder if I should loosen up and try the old Weaver or even one-handed stance, and maybe even the thumbs-down or (gulp) teacup grip. I have access to free instruction at the range I use, but I think they teach one way only. Oh yeah, and I am cross-dominant also, being right-handed and left-eyed, so I've considered trying to shoot left handed, and have issues keeping both eyes open. I use tape on the right lens of my shooting glasses. I think one issue is that because I am much better at reloading than shooting, I spend too much time shooting benched over a chronograph. Maybe reloading's my "Spiritual Gift", and I should rejoice in my role as the Family's Reloader, but I grow weary of everybody I shoot with being more accurate than me, and am willing to throw some time and money at the issue. Here's the question: does any have experience with trainers who will work with a mid-level shooter one-on-one, the shooter being neither a beginner nor someone currently much interested in "action", IDPA, IPSC, three-gun, or self-defense tactics per se? Someone in or near NC would be ideal, but if I was reasonably sure it would help, Arizona or whatever would not be out of the question. I think that maybe just one day with the right person might reboot me. My current goals are to regularly finish in the top 10% at GSSF matches, maybe later IPSC/IDPA, and then rifles. Thanks in advance. Should I be posting this in another forum? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
