    Nice shooting. I get a rush just waking to find I'm still alive.

    Gotta love those anatomically accurate targets. I just got a bunch of them. Interesting to see what you are damaging with shots outside the normal kill shots (for those of you that sometimes miss those targets )

    I've done the M drills from 7ft to 25ft or so. Close-in, it can be even tougher, particularly on an 'action/IPSC' type range in which you introduce practical movements away from the target (as though the target is an advancing assailant). Getting off the "X" while dealing with possible CQB contact can make the M drills downright dangerous to perform, if you're not careful. But if done both with and without loaded weaponry in varying conditions, the training can show quite a bit of weakness and risks in your technique. Try it with "blue" (training) guns and knives in a force-on-force situation with others. Can get ugly (difficult to succeed without 'injury') fast, once you vary things a bit.


    BTW, @25ft that looks like some fairly decent accuracy. Congrats.

    What really caught me off guard was after all that controlled fire practice, sight picture was fast, natural/muscle memory. I thought that was going to slow me down considerably, but it was really point and click so to speak. I really pleasantly surprised myself.
