    Made it out this morning to shoot this. Wasn't cold, I shot a 1 hole cadence drill first thing.

    7.44 was my best
    G19L

    B8s are definitely not getting too easy for me, but I gave the index card a try this morning at ten yards.

    I did have a ten round warmup, and shot the drill from low ready with G4G19-1. The last shot just _barely_ nicked the card, or at least that's what I'm telling myself

    Simple yet challenging drills are one of the foundations of skill development

    Funny this one slipped my mind for a long time. Shot it twice today. First run was a 7.44 but I jerked one outside.
    Slowed a bit and shot a 8.28 with a G19 Gen5.

    Cool app out there. TargetScan

    A couple of years later from that post; shot again a few weeks ago. I like this variation of the drill. Low ready with a P30.

    I really like the G45 and I think it makes me a better shooter than I really am (whereas the G19 yields results that more accurately reflect my mediocrity). Despite my misgivings due to the lack of a Gadget for it, I couldnít resist and picked up a VP9 a few weeks ago.

    My unscientific impressions from a few range visits to break in the VP9 were that it made me a little better still. The recent thread here about the Glock grip angle- https://pistol-forum.com/showthread....liche-evidence - prompted me to do a head-to-head comparison yesterday with the G45 on The Test.

    While it hasnít yet been published in a peer reviewed journal, my research suggests that the science is now settled that stout, balding middle-aged lawyers shoot the VP9 a bit better than the G45.

    For each, I shot The Test twice in succession, then shot the Splatterburst target below with 10 rounds from 10 yards, untimed and at a steady but slower pace, to get a sense of my inherent accuracy with each.

    G45: stock (with Ameriglo sights), except for Gadget
    VP9: stock except front sight painted bright red.

    My score on the first VP9 run was my best ever. Although she has many good qualities, my wife stubbornly refuses to allow me to put the target on the fridge.
    I only read the Constitution for the articles.
