Don't laugh....but since I don't tend to shoot as much as I want... Here are some of the things I do to practice or prepare for gssf matches (I don't know if they work, but they make me feel more confident and prepared). 1) Take a crisp photo of my sight picture, save it to my phone's home screen. Every time I look at my phone, my mind's eye focuses on the front sight. It reminds me to find and fixate on the front sight. I change the picture every once and a while to keep it fresh. 2) Play mahjang (sp?) On the computer. Every once in a while, I will play a game of this and pretend it's a shooting match. I am trying to find the targets as quickly as possible. I am on the clock. My eyes are darting back and forth. My hand is moving the mouse. I force myself to "stress" over it and I can get pretty worked up trying to beat my best time. My heart will beat a little faster and I will start feeling "anxious energy". Seems stupid, but shooting a gssf match is about balancing the stress of the timer with seeing the targets and front sight , So I do that. (I said, don't laugh!) 3) Put up pictures of the match stages on my computer screen. Hold up a pencil at arms length and "shoot the stage" pretending the pencil tip is the front sight. Really focus crisply on the lead of the pencil tip. You can see a lot of texture in it if you focus well. Practice "transitioning" your eyes and lead to the next target. I keep a timer near and see what kind of cadences equal what kind of stage times. You begin to see there is plenty of time to settle in and get a good sight picture and still have a quick string. 4) visualization. I will lay down at night and rehearse the whole thing in my head (the entire gssf match). As many details as I can think of. This is actually difficult, as my mind wanders in the quiet. I have to force myself to reign it in and get back to focusing on the natch in my head. Well, that's a few of my tricks. I thought I'd share some of my quirks since I have learned so much here from all of you. Happy Thanksgiving ! Hope you all get tons of Glock Mail for the holiday season. Wanna kill these ads?
