    Yes master A, I fumble a lot. Hindi ko pa rin maiwasan mgreengage lalo na i cant see my hit pag far targets (Medyo mahina n mata ko but I prefer shooting without my eyeglasses). Will post a video pag ok na Internet connection ko.

    Thanks a lot again.

    men16x. i am not a seeded shooter (seedless lang), so i dunno if my personal opinion is any good, analyze mo na lang :)

    pero if people observe you to be not in sync with your gun it means hindi fluid ang movement mo. to tell you the truth, the top shooters out here, solid example is ED MARTIN, when you see him shoot, you'll tell yourself swabe kumilos, but the time on the timer is very very low, parang time stands still when you watch him shoot! another example would be stephen hinojales, when you see him shoot open, cadence nya is STANDARD and shooting for him is EFFORTLESS!!! makes you wonder why you are having a hard time doing good!

    what am saying is that fluid movements (walang kanto) will make your times much lower. but to tell you the truth, dont be mindful of the timer, just tell your brain that its just a signal to tell you to start shooting, the reading on the timer is irrelevant. i dont work good under pressure so why add to the fact that i have to get a fast time? hehehe.

    try to slow down a bit, you'll feel you are shooting in SLOOOW MO bec you are conscious of the sights, etc, but in fact you might end up being FASTER bec. no wasted movement, no fumbles. rarely do i experience this, but when it happens, things turn out all right.


    i shoot to escape reality temporarily and thats where i am at when i am at the range :)

    sa totoo lang, i dont SEE my hits anymore 15meters up, i just point the gun, concentrate on the sight picture and pull the trigger. lumabo na din kaunti ang mata ko but the focus on my sight picture is still ok :) bilib ako kay ahtsay! when he is shooting, he can shoot one board and verify the last boards he shot so that when he misses something, binabalikan nya before he leaves his shooting position! awesome talent!!! :whistling:

    You dont need to see your hits , you just need to call your shots
    re: fumbling
    kung talagang masyado ka napapabilis , one way of controling your speed and move smoother is to shoot A's or al least keep aiming at them

    mabilis , mabagal,or puro kanto anytime I want to practice galaw, I do it w/out the distraction of live fire
    Pa ulit ulit

    Here's my vid at a funshoot today. I'm a very proud DUD-dy in this match. All the 5 stages I had duds. Will not use Russo primers anymore.

    based on those 2 vids , di naman pala parang kiti kiti
    I was expecting worse :)
    Pero I'm actually impressed your fast for a newbie
    Hindi tentative nor sabog sabog ang galaw
    You're right , it will get better when your shooting and gun handling skills get better
    Dont slow down ,ayusin mo lang patama mo

    Kamusta hits jan sa vid?
