Ok, I do agree that in closer has big time merits as you can push the gun back out like for a draw.

I think you have the right idea, in close and high

Thanks

I have a TS. Is it much larger than that?

It felt and looked massive and brick-like. The midget low slide on the CZ-75 became a massive high thing like a 1911, but without the sweet lines JMB intended. Frankly, the looks alone DQd that gun from my mind almost immediately.

Ok, back on topic
After watching Ben's video several times and reading all of his books I need to ask a question.
He talks about doing reloads lower, told Hopkins to lower his reload in the DVD so what's the deal?
I dry fired for several years looking into the magwell with the gun held high, I dry fired for a week (albeit with a fucking plastic platform) and just had problems nailing clean reloads. My question is, are you guys reloading lower as Ben says? If so wad it a smooth transition from the higher reload?
I'm not afraid of reps, but it really seems like it should be easier to hit a smooth reload when you can see inside the magwell.


I'm not Travis, Ben, etc but I've done a few reloads on different gats and got good enough on them to do OK. To get to sub 1s I had to start bringing the gun in and a bit lower than eye line, and doing it all basically not seeing into the magwell. It looks kinda freaky now, when I started things looked nice and perfect like Travis does it. I simply can't do it without using the prioperception index developed over a fuck-ton of reps. My hands just know where to go and I shovel mags in.

I played around with where to do it, and feeling I needed to point shit at other shit, develop a perfect index, etc. I came to the conclusion that you just jam mags at the gun and fail until you can't fail anymore. Burkett loads and the other thing from Ben's book didn't seem to help at all; yet after doing them for months I suddenly got way better. So that's what I'd recommend. Also, try that magwell-look-in-the-mag thing while running around. You'll figure out in a hurry where your natural reload index should be.

Lower helped me.  

 

I was faster shoving the gun back out from a lower position than i was bringing a mag up higher with my weak hand.

 

I can't get sub 1 second in dry fire 100%.  I end up fucking it up and throwing the mag through drywall every now and then.

Most of the time when doing running reloads I have enough time, it's the classifier fucking stand and shoots I'm trying to master.

Your explanation makes perfect sense, I did so many with my single stack it was automatic. The different mag angle of that fucking M&P fucked me up. It was much more angled than a SS .45. I'm hoping (fuck, just checked) WAS hoping ( just went and fucking looked and I'm fucked again) the CZ Shadow would have a more upright mag angle like the 1911.

Oh well

Looks like I need to re-fucking-train my skillz

Because 1911's are magic.

The day will come when the MFCEO switches divisions and goes 1911 or 2011 and all you nuthuggers are going to come back to the light.

Plastic sucks, DA guns exist in competition only because the rules force people to shoot them.
Dude, I thought you would be better...... MFCEO

Something else that I picked up from one of MFCEO's books is focusing on staying relaxed during draws and reloads. It isn't easy to do but it has helped me to identify that tension is the source of a good majority of my missed reloads.

I also think it's easier to relax and be loose on draws and reloads when you've done a million of them.

I worked to bring my reload closer in and a little lower after MFCEO's class. I basically was doing reloads that way while moving anyway.
The thing I've found is that the lower and closer reload is faster for me because I get both hands back on the gun sooner, that means I have a good grip sooner, which leads to a more stable gun faster. I rotate the gun over farther so I can still see the magwell with the gun lower.

One is at Cajun, P-09
David is doing a trigger job

Two at CZ Custom, might get them in Sept., ACCU Shadow and a SP-01 Shadow.
Leupold Delta Point-2 is going on the SP-01 Shadow

For me, bringing in the reload lower helps when I'm on the move.  More consistent when the gun is not bouncing around up high.

If you decide to sell these after 1 dry fire session, 1 live practice session, and 3 Doodie posts about your training plan and why it didn't work, can I buy them from you?  Not that this sequence of events would ever take place...
