So the practice has paid off and I saw good results this weekend at the West Shore Practical Shooters match in PA and got 4th in production and managed to win the classifier stage (Payne's Pain, unfortunately my hf is just a barely A classifier)  More work to do for sure but I am seeing  results.

"A"classifier scores are solid and a sign of proper practice/motivation. Many here are still piddling B class scores on a regular basis, but sippin' G&Ts is a lot easier AND a lot more fun than practicing.

I'm gonna chalk that up as my current problem (excuse). My dry-fire typically coincides with a few brews, or a bottle of wine, or a couple margaritas. Logic says the brain has more trouble programming neural pathways whilst hitting the sauce. 

 

Time to straighten out priorities, I suppose.  :wacko:  :P  :blink:

Shooting and dry fire did more damage to my refined drinking habits than anything else...ever....

Yes. You might want to start at 3 yards, 5 yards, and/or reduce the number of shots. Otherwise you will cry or rage quit.

^^^^^^ I can testify to that!

Start at 3 yards....

Update - I got 3rd in prod at the Maryland Practical Shooters Association local club match despite what I felt was a poor performance overall (it was crazy hot too but I am not making excuses).  Coming out of the holster is much better but when I got to the classifier Tick-Tock 13-05 I made the mistake of shooting faster (8.92 seconds) than I could effectively manage recoil/sight picture as a result I got two no shoot hits coupled with two mikes, ouch (hit factor was 3.1390).  I stunk it up real good.  It was my mistaken intent to "burn it down" mixed with over confidence and I confess to point shooting some too.  It was a humbling experience and fuel to further drive my practice commitment.  I think some time shooting the dots is a good start to fixing.  I am also going to re-read the section of Ben's book on grip.  Any other suggestions, guidance, or take this opportunity to take pot shots and make fun of another dumb block shooter.   :wub:

You should try listening to Steve Anderson's podcast. His last one is directly on topic for what you describe.

If you can stomach an avalanche of Van Halen. I regret not tuning in to any of this podcasts since he has a really relaxed show that doesn't get to the point.

Now to plug in my ear buds to reprogram the noodle...
