First topic message reminder :

I accomplished something i set out to do the first time i picked up a wadgun last year. Thanks to all the master and high master shooters like (Jon, John, Cecil, Dan, Jim..and i'm sure i missed many)here that post their thoughts on shooting and what it takes to shoot well. I never had any real hands on coaching, just what i've read from the AMU book, pistol shooters treasury, posts by top shooters, and figured out myself.  I'd especially like to thank Jon Eulette and KC Crawford for building quality pistols. 

Key things that worked for me. 

Learn to call your shots call the ring and position. Discover why they aren't where you called them. 

Don't take the bad shots in slowfire, put the gun down and start over if you get an indicator its not going well. For me, its if the though enters my brains i can make this a 10.

Keep the trigger moving, I am putting pressure on the trigger before i enter the 10 ring, it looks like its the 8 ring (slow fire) 9 ring (timed and rapid).

Know you have good gear. If you always doubt your gun or ammo how can you honestly call yourself out on errors you're making and correct them.

Keep hydrated and have some snacks during the match.

Grip that pistol, this added 10 points easy to each slowfire. I struggled with shots going places i didn't call them. This fixed it for me.

Trigger depressing speed was faster at times than other shots. When the hold was outstanding i could take my time to press the trigger, during other shots i was a little quicker on it.

Actually concentrate and focus on the target or dot through the entire shot. At times i would have a shot print outside the call and i'm sure this was the issue.   

10 seconds is plenty of time in rapid fire, don't rush those shots. For me that day the first shot broke and the rest just followed, didn't feel rushed and i didn't feel like i was picking at the center of the target. Was getting on the trigger while coming back in the black and i had this short dwell in the 10ring and it broke.  

Don't be afraid to adjust your position throughout the match. Something as little as adjusting your big toe can help at times.

Wonderful shooting! Outstanding performance overall and especially the CF score. Are you trying to skip master class and go straight to high master? Well done! I wonder... was it worth the investment on the 32 if you didn't shoot it or need it?  lol! Keep up the good mental state you had to perform at that level and push to keep on going up.

Great shooting Chris!!!!! The effort your putting in is paying off. Keep it going and you'll soon be up on the Stage at Perry standing on the winners platform.

Another solid performance yesterday, 2612. 

Something else learned/rediscovered concentration is key just because you see the target or dot it doesn't mean you really see it.

Something else learned/rediscovered concentration is key just because you see the target or dot it doesn't mean you really see it.

And another shooter discovers the difference between just "seeing" and really "seeing what you need to see". 

I'll bet now you could, after each slow fire shot, take a pencil and draw an accurate presentation of the dot wobbling around the center of the hold, where it was when the sear tripped and the direction it went as recoil started.

Greetings,

I believe Chris has illustrated to me why my scores are well below 2600.

I have been shooting right handed.

Looks like it is time to switch to my left hand.

After all, the 1911 is left hand twist, yes?

Cheers,

Dave

It torques to the left keeping my arm straight Smile  I'm sure you could build a right hand twist barrel Smile

Cecil,
For sure I feel like I could really plot the shots. I originally thought the shots were breaking during a twitch or after the hammer was falling I was moving more than the wobble. I believe now it's the fact I wasn't really focused to begin with and it wasn't a good shot but I kept on the trigger. I hope I kinda tried to explain it

There totally is a zen to this sport and there's an article about it on the bullseye encyclopedia somewhere. I thought of it while reading the latest entries here.
