Brother.. firstly, I do not feel that its intellectually honest to frame my comment to suggest that I am saying "practice is bad". I clearly placed my comment within a reasonable context. Whether or not "practice" is good or bad (productive or unproduction) economical or costly ( concervative or wasteful) a benefit or a drawback.. often depends on many things.I dont understand how anyone can sit there and say practicing is bad, especially when it comes to a skill that involves life or death...but here we are.
Diminished returns does not mean practice is bad, quite the opposite. Learning how to pull a trigger is pretty basic in the scheme of things. If it takes an inordinate amount of time to learn a Glock's trigger, then it's time to move on to a platform with a short learning curve, IMO.I dont understand how anyone can sit there and say practicing is bad, especially when it comes to a skill that involves life or death...but here we are.
So, since you don't do it, no one else needs to either. Got it.Why? Because in my view, it quickly reaches a point of diminished returns. Unless of course if you are a bullseye shooter. I am definitely not any sort of gun gamer or exhibition shooter. I am simply a guy who wants to defend himself in a fight. I have never had any problem maintaining meaningful accuracy over the decades and I have never experienced any sort of difficulty or problem related to combat accuracy (torso zone).
if that is what you get from the couple of hundred words I said in this thread, you have missed the point. I clearly outlined several circumstances where I consider the practice to likely be worth the effort as well as the reasons why I dont. I do not mind disagreement but lets not omit information which is integral to the primary point.So, since you don't do it, no one else needs to either. Got it.
English is not my first language but I was not talking about a box of ammo. I said it was a box to be checked. That simply means that I acquaint myself and figuratively "check that goal off the list" and move on. I clearly stated that I solidify the experience with live fire. I never said anything about how many round or boxes that would take.I'm happy for you, but I guess most people need more than a box to get reasonably acquainted with a trigger. At least I do.
Hey, there's probably always going to be some disagreement between the folks who talk about things because they've read about it, and those who share experiences because they've done it. (And it's usually better if those experiences were successful examples. )...
I may not be right about anything I have ever said on this forum over the past 20 years but I am not one who sits around watching youtube or parroting things that other people say. I tell people what I think based on my own training, knowledge and experiences.
