EUC- good point on shooting what you carry. And Yeah I kep the mags packed while sitting around the house. Thanks for the info though
Artz- I am sure most of us want tactical practice

I agree that I am responsible for every round that comes from a weapon I pull the trigger on. If you read my other reply, it is more of an aiming exercise. I aim at the K5 in the head and the chest. I sometimes aim at the left elbow K5 as well. Again just to see how close I am getting to where I am aiming. Aim small miss small.

In the time it takes to tape up the target you can shoot more. Theer is a large piece of paper there. Use as much as possbile. Again it's not what you aim to shoot, but where you aim to shoot.
Tangle gets a +1 as well

I got distracted. You bought a great gun and I am more than glad to see you shooting it with enthusiasm, and for the right reason - SD.
You mentioned "...My forearms felt like I spent hours in the gym.. ". From my experience, the brain actually fatigues before the body.
If you are just getting started, keep in mind that practice alone isn't effective - it takes good, sound, practice to maximize your improvement. If you practice mistakes, you get better at them; if you practice good techniques, you become a better shooter. Which brings me back to your brain.
If you're really concentrating on technique and improving your shooting, your mind will fatigue. I see it over and over and over in people I train. Other trainers see it too.
I was working with a guy not long ago and we were able reduce his groups dramatically. Then I had him practice the techniques until the groups started to spread. I knew at that point, his mind was done and to go further would just be undoing the progress. I explained that to him and he heeded the advice and quit, while he was ahead, so to speak, and hence on a good note. He had shot only 75 rounds. But that was enough. I'm good for about 200 rounds before my mind either gets tired or distracted.
Another thing I see over and over is people want to shoot too fast, meaning faster than they are capable of. Speed will come naturally as a result of slow fire and good technique, you just have to be patient.
Keep up the good work!
