    close ups




    Rapid fire XD40SC. The target has 50 rounds in it. Some strays but I am happy with the outcome. It took me a while to archive this consistency.
    I have about 3000 rounds through it at last count. This is my daily carry.

    25 feet range to target.

    Nothing beats practice, and nothing beats good shot placement.
    I've only had the S&W Model 29 .44Magnum for a couple weeks, and I definately need more practice,and it shows

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    The problem with those targets is that they put the bullseye in the wrong place. You should be aiming for the high chest, even with the armpits, or the nipple line.

    That is where the heart, major arteries, and lungs are.

    Good shooting - just raise your point of aim a bit.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Practicing punching paper to make sure you can hit what you aim at is great training, no doubt...but how many of you actually practice drawing from concealment and firing one shot into the center of mass??? Can you do it under the stress of being charged by an agressive individual??? This is something I asked myself after getting my Texas CHL 15 years ago. I bought a laser device that loads like a round in my gun and turns on when it's struck by the firing pin. I would stand in front of a mirror and draw repeatedly until I had that move mastered and could put the first round in my center of mass. I would have my sons charge me from 25, then 15 then 5 yards out, putting me in a stressed position and would draw from concealment and try to get the lazer on their center of mass before they could touch me. If they did, touch me, I bought them lunch...so they really tried hard. This really showed me my weaknesses and allowed me to make adjustments to correct them. Keep in mind if you cant get thgun to the ready before the badguy gets to you.......being the perfect hole punching handguner is worthless.
    The only thing needed for evil to exist is for good men to stand by and do nothing!!!
