    Took the Sig and 500 rounds of Tula out today. One thing I can say about that gun, it is reliable. Even though it was hot enough during a lot of the session to small the burning flesh on my support thumb and even though I could hear the steel case ammo rattling in the mags the gun just kept chugging along. It was getting a little sluggish toward the end of the session and probably needs some lube. It has about 1800 rounds on it now since I bought it new without cleaning or oil. 200 more and it will get a cleaning.

    I shot a combo of Gabe Whites drills and MSP Black Belt standards. There is a marked difference between this little gun and my USPSA G17. However by the end I was laying down some halfway decent times. The Sig optic still sucks. If I ever get the new Holosun and still don't like the gun I will probably let my wife try it, if she like it I will give it to her. Still trying to find a factory rear sight plate for it.

    3X2 at 3 50 rds
    Bill drill 150 rds
    1 shot at 25 yards 50 rds
    1 shot at 7 yards 50 rds
    2 shots to 3X5 at 7 yards 50 rds
    Failure drill at 7 yards 150 rds.

    I shot some SHO and WHO today with the carry guns at distances of 7 to 12 yards. These skills are never ending work. I am not quite satisfied with how it goes.
    I did some 3 x 2 black belt stuff from concealment even. 2.06 seconds was my best time the worst was 2.46 seconds. I did some one shot draws from concealment as well. Then it was too hot for a cover garment so I put it in the truck.

    I did some trigger control work with the .22 pistols. The Smith and Wesson A is much better than the .22 compact trigger wise. Much better.

    Ralph, Steve and I did some drills with the competition guns. Focus on movement, trigger control and transitions. I did some one shot draws trying to pick up speed. My fastest was 0.83 seconds. It was a little warm today, but it is June. Will try and post some video in a little bit.

    I had written a long detail post of what I did in dry fire today. I took too long and lost it. I dry fired steel banners this evening.

    I have baseball to attend this afternoon so I got up this morning and hit the Steel Challenge dry fire again this morning. Just 12 hours later it was better. I touched the par time on some of the first runs. I did better of not over squeezing the gun with my gun hand. I did extra reps on Pendulum. Made the par time on all ten the second time through.

    I have been working....a lot
    That said, I have been forcing myself to dry fire ...
    I looked at the log last night , I have averaged about 3 sessions per week since early march.
    I have worked in 6 live fire sessions
    The dry fire has been steel challenge focused because Area 5 is next weekend.
    The plan is to go to the range tomorrow if I get off work early enough,
    The granddaughter is moving this week so I'm going to help as much as I can Tuesday.
    Tuesday is my only day off

    steel banners done for the day. There is really something to this practice thing. It makes a noticeable difference in a few days. I need to work on draw from concealment, but not this week.

    I am trying to be very honest in dry practice about calling shots on these small steel plates. I think it is costing me speed, but I want Friday to be a lot of one for one and eliminate the make up shots. That is my best chance. Made the par time some on every stage today but I think I could go faster. Will be doing some live fire tomorrow on the range of various things. I hope to shoot some live fire on either pendulum or accelerator or both.
