Still alive and kicking

I know that I haven’t been posting much, and that isn’t because I haven’t been dry-firing or training it is just my job has been in the way as this is our busiest time of the year. I will try to post a bit more often but I don’t know if it will be as often as it was this summer.

Today I managed to make it to the range to actually train on my own without having to train another officer or person. I have been increasing my dry-fire to ridiculous levels and felt good about my reloads and my hands at side draw.

When I got to the range it was crazy windy so it was a pain in the butt to move my targets around too much as I have to stake them in place every time I move them. I started with Ben Stoeger’s Accelerator. Last year at this time I was having difficulty breaking 6 seconds, now I can get under that consistently, and I have been able to push under 5.5 seconds. Doesn’t matter which target I start on the close target or the far target. When pushing for my fastest times, I do tend to push the couple of C’s a bit farther from the A zone than I would like at the 25 yard target. It is a trigger control issue and not a sight picture issue, I need to work on my speed for far targets as I still slap the trigger like I would for a 7 yard target. (more…)
