    2020 Practice (dry and live)

    Staying at home and finding productive things to do on Spring Break.

    So yesterday March 26 I started the first dry practice of 2020. Decided I would focus on the EDC to start. Things are not really calming down and chance favors the prepared and so forth. I worked up a small list of drills to work on. Trigger meet sights 1, and Trigger meet sights 2, draws from concealment to the right side at about four yards on a 1/3 scale USPSA target. Draws from concealment on the left at three yards on a 1/3 scale USPSA target. Move of the line of force to the right and left and deliver three rounds to the body and two to the head on the FPF training target at just over three yards. Moving off the line of force and delivering six rounds on some or all of these same targets. Trying to increase trigger finger speed on these runs, and form the habit of squeezing more with the weak hand.

    Yesterday was about getting par times figured out and noticing how rusty I was. Today I was trying hard to be observant of what was and was not happening in front of my face. I noticed a lot of front sight movement during draws. Working to minimize that movement. Flat foot draw work seemed fine as far as grip, but when I starting moving off the line of force my right hand was squeezing more than it should. I tried to work on more grip with the WH. That will be a point of focus in the coming days.

    When the rain stopped today I decided to social distance myself to the range. I put the SASII from Bul through some drills. The gun ran very well. I plan to start writing up the review for Front Sight Magazine in the morning. Jake and I are going to do another day at the range as well. I just needed to get to the range today.

    I have been dry firing in 2020
    Just not as consistently or as varied as I had planned.
    The work schedule has been nuts, it kind sucks to be essential....until you stop and think about it for a minute.🤔
    I have been defaulting to the steel challenge banners because they are easy to set up.
    I typically do 5 to go , pendulum and outer limits because I suck at those 3 the most.
    I'm kind of on call now so I'm going to try and add some more stuff in tomorrow.
    I glad you started this thread up again
    It reminds me to do something...anything is better than nothing

    Just finished the routine. Started sweating with this stupid cover garment, and the fan has not been set up yet. So I knocked the right hand ride draws from concealment off and shed the garment. Did Bill Drills at 10 yards to work on weak hand gripping. More grip with WH was a point of emphasis today.

    Got some writing to do.

    Thank u for this post. Believe it or not I never thought to do dry fire drills. I can do this while on lockdown (virus) at home.

    I setup 99-24 (Front Sight 2) and ran some dry fire drills out back. Continued to speed up the par time by .1's to push myself faster. Need to live fire it to ensure my practice is paying off.

    You spruced up a training thread with video of shiny eye candy. I see what you did there...

    Did a video conference with a GM (Tony Sallis) yesterday working on my AIWB draw. He described a process Iíve never heard of to break it down to make 1 sec draws consistently. Pointed out exactly what was costing me time. So Iíll be working on that for a while. Also need to get Steve Andersonís and Ben Stoeger books.

    Also wanting to get some airsoft guns (officially licensed Glock and M&P replicas) and targets for me and for the family to practice. Plan is to get 2-3 USPSA targets in the backyard and work on movement, draws, transitions, and everything else besides recoil control.

    Been hearing nothing but good reviews on BUL Armory pistols. Iím saving up my pennies to get the 1911/2011 Tac Commander. Price is awesome compared to the other 2011s out there.
