30 minutes of dry fire; 4 aces with a 2.5s par time and the 2s move into position drill from yesterday.
Pretty major breakthrough on the draw, I tried grabbing the gun with my fingers against the front strap before my palm. Is that a “scoop draw?” in any event it was a lot faster and more consistent. I went from struggling to hit the par time and having to nail the reload to make it, to seemingly having an eternity to aim even with what seems like a slow reload. Still not sure how to translate that into a surrender position draw.
Need to work on looking the magazine into the gun and pulling the pistol in closer to my body. When I feel rushed I tend to look back to the target and start pulling my fingers away from the magazine index before it’s actually in the magwell. The metal gun is much less forgiving on getting the magazine aligned with the well than my XD. All combined, rushing=screwed up reloads.
Moving into position and shoot I added a vision barrier this time (ran down the hallway). No big surprises, but it reinforced get moving first, worry about the draw enroute and have the gun up before you getting to the position. I did realize I have been looking at the spot on the ground that I want to go to, which was really slowing me down. Having a good sense of where I wanted to be looks like in my peripheral vision really helped to not over shoot and still be ready to pull the trigger when I stop.
I played with which leg to push off with when I’m moving. My natural instinct seemed to use my left leg no matter which direction the movement. So cross-over step going left and lunge type step moving right. Weird. Trying both it seemed like a lunge was faster with shorter distances and cross over was faster if there was enough room to really start running. Somewhere around 13ish feet seemed to be about the same.
I really need to find a place to shoot where I can practice this stuff with actual bullets.
