hands hands hands

my hands hurt. that's apparently a good thing.
Slacked off on dryfire for the last few days but tonight
ran SA2 drills 1-7? burket reloads
My par times are improving and index is better.
Some wacky stuff can happen at .2 seconds under
The weakhand transfer needs some dedicated work.
Turning on my right foot is better and new so I need to give that more time too.
Quit when I had the front mag pouch loose from burkett reload drill
More boolits came yesterday and there are full primer tubes waiting.

nine brass from the sky

Met Gary for pancakes and then we went to the fun show.
Josh walked into a decent brass deal today working at the gun show.
He carted ~ 15000 pieces for about 50 bucks. 9mm.

Shot at Garretson today and kicked around Robert's winter classifier idea with Steve.
Every other Thursday evening in the winter we could run a couple uspsa classifiers. 10+ people needed
I think we could get that easy if we announced it at some matches this summer and pitched it on the website.

Sounds like it's a doable thing. I gotta talk to Fred about it
Steve seemed to really like the idea once we explained how it works.

As for my shooting today, It was OK .
I did crank off an oopsie practicing 1 shot per dot weakhand.
I also did some reload drills and missed one reload.
PT drill 4.66/4.84/4.77
dots 5.75 | 5.19 | 4.73 1 out

some other drill where it was two to a head type box , reload and 4 to a circle was 6.1
I may wish to track this drill and also the the small square big circle small square target/drill

Good Afternoon Mr. Wick

I went to see John Wick 2 today and it was a pretty good flick.
The dog doesn't have a name. WTF?

a half hour of dryfire before dinner tonight.
Mostly reloads again. Reloads to strong and weak hand. Wall drill before and after
I tried Diggler's AlphaX holster. Gotta have one.

Pancakes in the morning with Gary , then we'll check out the gun show.
Plan on shooting a bit in the afternoon at Garretson.
I am going to do the math on those classifiers tonight and reload a few hundred rounds.

So far my only goals for the 2017 season are to get my B card,
I would like to see my matches at least 70% at locals and 60 % at majors but
I am so sick of C class I have been practicing a lot more stand and shoot stuff
than I usually do.

about face

Walked out to the work parking lot to go to lunch.
50+ degrees and no wind. I turned around, went back in and clocked out.
A couple quick errands and off to the range.

First I sighted in the ACOG with the can.
8 clicks right and 8 clicks up.

Shot groups with the pistol. practiced pickups loaded and unloaded and reloading from the bench
More groups and done. Not a lot of pistol work can be done out there and I forgot my belt anyway.
I'm glad I burned the 4 hours leave. Cube land would have sucked my soul out this afternoon.

Ordered 2500 bullets.

ls -l

Bullets. Lots of bullets. est. $500

My lost magazine came out in the laundry so tonight did around 40 minutes
My oldest son brought his girlfriend home from school so I kept it short.
I also took the dryfire targets out of his room.
15 ft index warmup
A few minutes at the wall
reloads from all pouches.
more reloads. micro reloads of getting the mag indexed correctly in my left hand.
moving reloads.
more trigger work at the wall.

Printed the classifiers and got the hit factors from az shooters.
I also added a practice match and put them in my phone.

I will make B class this year.

I am down to under 1000 bullets again so its past time to order more swampstomper lead.
I'll call and get another discount code and order tomorrow.
Ol Diggler got himself a gas pedal and new (alpha-x) holster he's itching to try out.
That's another 250 I don't need to spend but if I do I better do it soon.

Gun show is this weekend that I'm hoping to skip.

in plain sight

Ever strap on the belt and only make a half-hearted attempt to practice ?

I pulled the belt off after some trigger pulls and sight picture index drills.
I was bummed out because I' seem to have lost my favorite dryfire mag BUT
I left the gun out. Did some "cleaning" while looking for the mag and
kept catching myself picking the gun up and practicing one thing or another.
Pretty soon it evolved into a pretty decent dryfire session.

I will stick to the schedule and must map it out in more detail for the remainder of the non-off off season.

Gear Note: need to make the list and order some shoes and other crap from amazon.
Next post may consist of a list of things to order. MBX Mags ... how many more bullets etc

a week or so

Not a whole lot going on this week.

Saturday I just dinked around with Jon and Ryan and did some reloading in the evening.
I rescued Robert on Sunday when he was locked inside the range when the doorknob broke.
I popped the lock with a credit card and got to shoot for free !!

I am liking the new short flat triggers. Also got a trigger job done on the backup gun.
It's way better. Shot it at Gary's indoor league and it ran fine and seemed to help me .
I am getting more accurate but still slow in taking the shot.

Time to set some goals and make a plan to achieve them.

I'm still wishy washy on the Area 3 match.
I have hotel reservations and a slot but we'll see how the season goes.

strong and weak

Drove Al to Garretson for some strong and weak hand only practice.
After some impressive high speed deer dodging I decided to take the Interstate back instead of the county roads
I shot for an hour.
started with dot torture. adjusted sights - 6 clicks down and 4 right.
shot about two hundred rounds SHO & WHO keeping in mind the Saul Kirsch vid I watched today.
I am slowly getting better at it at least enough so I don't HATE it. Still a long way to go.
