We all like to shoot race guns. They are fun, for sure, but are they better in the hands of Masters? In a word, barely. Our Masters have access to the latest, greatest mods on the planet, but yet, they shoot stock GLOCKS as good, often better. Case in point, Dayton, Ohio. Dayton represents a fine average GSSF outdoor match. Now look at some of the Master's scores there: 38.29--Unlimited, Grady Whitelaw 40.09--Competition, Bryan Dover 40.42--Master Stock, Grady Whitelaw 41.65--Subcompact, Grady Whitelaw True, these guys are among the best of the best, but their times illustrate what little benefit all the bells and whistles can provide. The best investment one can make is in practice ammo, and the real secret of the Masters is practice with a purpose--lots of it. Use your previous scores to pinpoint your problems. Don't just go out, shoot a bunch of ammo, and call that practice. It's practice WITH A PURPOSE! It can be very simple, using a timer: 1. Practice controlled pairs at just one D-1, either 5 yards or 10 yards, from a low ready position. Again, and again, and again. Your goal, 2 shots in the A-ring in under 2 seconds. 2. Practice 1 shot at an 8in circle @ 11 yards, again from a low ready. Again, and again, and again. Goal, 1 shot in the circle in 1 second or less. The most important shot or two in a string is the first shot or two from a low ready position. Everything after that is a simple lateral movement. You own a GLOCK, you have magazines, mag carriers, holsters, belts, bags. If you don't have one, get a shot timer.
