    2017-07-05 Weekly Practice w/ eyemahm


    150 rds


    5 to 3" @ 12.5 yds: -3

    Bad flinching.


    5 to 3" @ 12.5 yds: -3

    Another bad flinch.


    Core Drills @ 5 yds:

    Reset x 10 : clean
    P2 x 10: clean
    D2 x 10: -4
    P4 x 6: -6

    Botched a reload during P2 sending another +2 mag loaded to the ground, which promptly exploded. Details at: https://pistol-forum.com/showthread....l=1#post622178. I will be switching all my +2 setups back to stock, probably today.

    I think it's time I change up the core drills again and get back on the timer.


    5 to 3" @ 12.5 yds: clean

    Sub 2" maybe 1". Felt very good, though I was hunched over.


    LC-SRT: 94

    18: -3
    10: -1H -1B
    D7: -1B

    Still not great at 18. I need to up my consistency at distance.

    I've been getting a bit lax on pushing speed. I put some extra focus on moving quickly at 5 and 3. Ran draw/sidestep failure drills at 5 yards clean in 2.25s and 2.12s (draws were 1.65s and 1.55s respectively). Draw/sidestep to the card at 3 yards was 1.46s and 1.56s clean.


    5 to 3" @ 12.5 yds: -2


    5 to 1" @ 7 yds: -3

    2017-07-11 Weekly Practice

    2017-07-11 Weekly Practice w/ eyemahm

    150 rds

    5 to 3" @ 12.5 yds: -1

    5 to 3" @ 12.5 yds: -3

    Core Drills @ 5 yds:

    P1 x 10: -1
    D1 x 10: -1
    P2 x 10: -4
    1R1 x 7: -3
    P6 x 3 : -6

    Ran on timer when possible.

    Very bad on follow up shots on 1R1, rushing. Need to be more disciplined with the follow up sight picture in dryfire.

    Awful P6. -3 on first run alone. Also feels very slow, .35+ splits, but I don't know that faster is reasonable to expect for a 3" dot at 5 yards. There really isn't that much wiggle room.

    5 to 3" @ 12.5 yds: -2

    Pretty tight.

    LC-SRT: DQ/89

    18: -2 (1 was DQ)
    10: -1B
    5: -1H -1B (both called)
    D7: -2H -1B
    D5: -2B

    Maybe my worst run score wise, but I know what happened. Wasn't expecting the DQ at 18, though knew that shot wasn't great. Screw ups at 5 and 7, particularly on the draw/sidestep strings, were because of rushing and accepting sight pictures where the front sight was not settled into the rear notch. I had trigger freeze a few places here on the first shot, and rushed subsequently.

    I think actively training the reseting to the wall technique has increased the number of trigger freeze occurrences I'm seeing, particularly on first shots. So, I'm laying off that. Pressing straight through from all the way out on every shot seems like the safest and most universal technique. I also think the NY2 plays a role here. When it happens it is as if I feel more weight in the trigger than I was expecting for some reason. The NY2 requires a very deliberate press, and so I think it is much easier to get caught up on it when not rowing straight through the whole range of motion.

    5 to 3" @ 12.5 yds: -1

    First four in. Broke hold/alignment before taking last shot. Missed despite feeling good.

    5 to 1" @ 7 yds: -1

    Very close.


    It's been 1 year now with the NY2. Around 7k rounds. A lot of dry fire. I'm nearing switching back to the stock trigger, and I'll probably play with that and the NY1 this weekend if I have time. I may also keep the NY2 in a little longer to reinforce rowing through the full range of motion and to ensure that trigger freeze is eliminated before moving on. However I think I'm reaching that point where, if my ultimate goal is performance with the stock trigger, I need to get back to working with the stock trigger.

    15 mins

    A bunch of work on trigger press and reset, including some off draws and pressouts.

    Personal Training:

    1 hr

    4x:
    Barbell deadlift: 2 reps; 320 lbs (first set 315 lbs) switched to mixed grip on last two sets
    Rest 1m
    Barbell deadlift (explosive): 4 reps explosive; 225 lbs
    Rest 3m

    3x:
    Pull ups: 5 reps
    Rear-foot-elevated split squat (explosive): 5 reps each side; 2x35 lbs
    Turkish getups: 3 reps each side, 15 lbs

    New record for barbell deadlift I think. And I definitely had some headroom on that; didn't want to tap out on the 2 before the explosives.
