This weeks dry-fire was an interesting one. I entered into week 3 of this training block on Monday and rocked it out. Reloads were going good and everything seemed to be smoothing out nicely all my other drills just seemed to click. Tuesday I got a lot of good solid work in on breaking down into the Learning Drills and trying to fine tune things. Continue reading Training Update: 2/8 – 2/14
This morning I got up headed to the garage and got my dry-fire session in before calling out to a local gun shop and having a slight communication error about powder. I at least was able to get some primers. After that I headed out to the range. My ammo supply is getting low so I didn’t get as much in as I wanted to. Continue reading Range Time!
This week I realized how much I talk to myself as I dry-fire. On Monday I got out the camcorder and stood front and center while I was dry-firing. My purpose of this was try and see where I can make tweaks or where I’m going wrong with my drills. The main thing I wanted to see was my reloads. I have been hit or miss on them since changing platforms and wanted to see if there was anything I could do before scrapping Continue reading Dry-Fire Update: 2/1-2/6
Last night after work I shot out to the range for a bit. I took some time shooting both my VP9 and my Glock 19. I worked on my strong and off hand shooting and I’m seeing improvement in both. Off hand is still a little sloppy at times and I find myself flinching. Strong hand I am not flinching near as much and my groups are looking much nicer and speed is picking up on them.
I thought I still may be flinching with my freestyle shooting since I see my shots going down just a little bit. However, after I shot my G19 and noticed my elevation on that was fine (just hitting a little left… sight issue, I checked.) I took a look at my zero at 20 yards and found that I am hitting consistently about an inch low. I did the math and now I should have a new front sight on the way.
Overall, I was happy with my shooting and my hits are grouping into a 2 1/2 to 3 inch group most of the time. My ability to track the sights is improving as well. I dumped about 400 rounds downrange and my supply is getting really low. I got to get on top of ordering my Dillon and the components to keep me going.
This week I got back to full-time dry-fire after taking a week off then going part-time for a week to let my elbow rest. I am taking another run at the “Stuck in B Class” program that has been pretty good to me so far. The program is solid to begin with and it allows for minor customization. I’m still focusing on 30 minutes a day and I’m feeling good about my ability. During this stretch of training I’m going to focus on my one handed shooting.

A while back I started this page as a way to document my dry-fire, live-fire and my match performance. Last week I was trying to write several posts and as I was saving them and even when I tried to post them it would delete all my text that was in there. After several tries I gave up and Continue reading Review on Progress
Welcome back to my page. Earlier in the week I was having continuous problems with the page saving/deleting drafts or not posting items at all. In my frustration I decided to delete and move onto 2.0. My plan is to continue to use this as a log of my training, matches and whatever else i feel like that is related to my shooting. In deleting I lost all my old posts. Don’t worry I didn’t go anywhere. Please be patient while I rebuild.
