    Patience is the term I was looking for. I think I touch one off as soon as the fiber was on the A rather than holding for a few hundreds to confirm that I can see the front in the rear notch. I think...

    By introduced, I meant I was shown the concept, we did it, and I do it occasionally in practice, especially with new sights.

    While I know the concept is the same across all sights, my experience...

    Yes, I was introduced to that in Gabe White's class. I was shooting with Trijicon HD XR sights and the front post and rear notch widths were well matched. I was able to get A's as long as the dot was...

    I should have clarified. I'm not looking for the serrations on the sights, but I was basically point shooting off of index the entire match. That got me 6 misses and 3 no shoots.

    All I saw was a...

    I'm considering a red dot for my P229, more specifically an ACRO. Do you think it would be easier to move up in class shooting lim minor with irons, or open minor with an acro?

    I'm excited about...

    Thanks, I might go take a ride up there for a match one weekend. At least you've done the legwork to get the R.O.s familiar with concealment in USPSA.

    Went out again today to try to beat the P320 times with my P229. I dry fired the drill for about 5 minutes, then did about 30 reps and came out with a 9.21 HF average.

    So now I can shoot my P229...

    From what I can tell, it appears the manual safety prevents the trigger bar and trigger from moving, in addition is pushes it down off the sear. If the trigger can't move, then it also can't push up...

    1a. I'm not hung up on AIWB for the draw, mostly for the "this is how I carry normally, and it fits within the rules" aspect. Dry fire for me isn't just about drawing and trigger control. I did a ton...

    I think it may only be 2 threads that I'm participating in and bumping. I'm not trying to grind an axe or anything, just getting perspectives from seasoned shooters and relaying my experience.
