It's not about the gun
Posted 20 March 2015 - 07:18 PM
At this point I feel like the gun is not new anymore and I'll focus on my shooting here.
Goals for 2015 are to make M in production.
Place well at GA State

Live fire tomorrow. Planning to work shooting on the move and distance change up.

Some observations on shooting on the move at 10 yards. 10 yards is about the limit I feel comfortable shooting on the move.
When I'm moving across a target array (right to left or left to right) I tend to shoot a little low. Lower half of the A zone, so not too low and push shots to either side.
When moving towards the targets my groups are tighter side to side, but have more vertical stringing.
I am definitely faster shooting both close targets and then the far headshots on distance change up. Than makes sense as its only one distance / speed change instead of 2.

I'm switching up my schedule and trying to dry fire in the morning before work. I'm shifting some of my practice time away from live fire to dry fire. It is easy for me to go in to the range early and shoot 1-200 rounds before work in an hour. I think using the same time for dry fire may be more productive since I can get in many more reps in dry fire in the same time.
I'll live fire once or twice a week still.

Bill drill for 50 rounds, then 2 sheets of dot drills.
Bill drills were fast but sloppy hovering right around 2 sec. I pulled something in my upper back/ shoulder and until my arm loosened up the gun was all over the place in recoil.
On the other hand, the dot drill went very well. I went 4 for 6 with all in the dot of the first sheet of dots, with all but one miss being just outside of the circle. The second sheet was 3 for 6, about the same as the first except for the last dot. On that one I threw a shot about 4 inches high right.
Bangged out 2 hours of dry fire focused on Learning drills.

I feel like some times either of them describe my shooting.
I've been working for the last couple months to feel comfortable shooting faster and to stay relaxed while shooting. The two are starting to come together and both my speed and accuracy are better when I can stay relaxed.

First stage was 13-05 Tic Tock
It went well, 4 alphas on all 3 of the bottom targets, but 1B/3C on the top target. I put all 4 shots right on the B/C line. I needed to move that group into the A zone for the classifier to be good. 12A 1B 3C
Second stage I had over ran my entry point for the second position which cost me a little bit of time. I was looking at the target and not at where I needed to step into the box. Also made up a shot I didn't need. I cought myself looking off of a target while I was taking the second shot so I finished the array and came back to that target, ended up putting the makeup shot right between the first 2 A hits. I'm glad I made it up because I realized I looked away from the target as I was still shootng. 20A 6C
The third stage was pretty fast, but involved a couple tight shots with a hard lean. Shooting on a hard lean bit me at AL because I wasn't careful about how I had the gun tilted. It wasn't a problem this time. I kept the gun vertical while leaning and shot well. 25 A 3C
No video this week, I was just busy running the match and didn't think about it.

The biggest lesson looking back was stage planning.
On a couple of stages you had 2 ways to move through the stage.
You could take the shortest path through the stage. This meant that you would shoot more of the stage stationary and only had a few steps to the next position.
On the other hand, you could take a less direct path through the stage that let you shoot on the move more. The trade off for the added distance through the stage was that you could be shooting as you moved.
I'm not sure that either was a noticeable advantage. Shooting on the move did seem smoother while the shorter path didn't flow as well due to the starting and stopping.

Shooting on the move a good bit on this stage. I still need to work on staying lower and keeping my legs bent.
Too many Cs but managed to win the stage, partially due to other people throwing misses. I've gotta improve my accuracy while moving, more As and less C.
