A couple of you have expressed interest in an informal workshop to improve your performance in local competitions. I thought I would see how many of you would like to get together and work on specific skills and drills. The first topic I thought we could focus on is trigger control. It is the most important aspect of good marksmanship and is the root cause of most poor performance. I have some ideas that may help shrink those groups down a bit and some drills you can use to practice that skill. This practice will be applicable to all types of competition from GSSF to IPSC and to all skill levels. I've discussed the idea with Barry, who is the owner of Openrange. He is aboard and would give us exclusive use of one of the pistol ranges assuming we have several participants to make it worth his while. The only cost to you will be the range fee for the time we spend. I have asked for and will receive no compensation. To keep the cost to a minimum, I thought we could limit the time on the range by starting off in the class room discussing some theory and doing some dryfire drills. Then we can head out to the range for some live fire exercises. I was thinking of next Monday, starting around 6:30pm and ending around 8:00. We would need around 5 people to make this work. If this sounds like something you would like to do, either reply to this thread or pm me. If it proves to be of value, we could address other topics such as sight picture for different target presentations, reload drills, position shooting, etc. I will have to confirm this with Barry after I know what kind of interest there is. Again, I get nothing out of this except the pleasure of working with my friends, but we need to make it worthwhile to the range to get the bays to ourselves for an hour or so. Think it over and let me know. Hope to see you on the range.
