Okay bud, the key here is to increase the speedat which you things. You should be able to call your shots as you fire them, even at .2 or even .12, Start by trying to see your brass as it ejects from the gun. When you can ID about where it landed because you saw it, you're resady for the next step. On that step you wil try to call double taps by marking them on a munu target before you ook at the actual target. Use X for the cal and O for the actual. When you can do that reliaby start adding shots to your string.
You're trying to run before you can walk, dude. Do these steps and drop me a PM when you can fo 5 shots and call them all accurately and quickly. It'l be a few sessions before you're there.

Which is fine until you get so conditioned to going for accuracy that you slow down so much because you're setting up for the most accurate shot you can make (instead of the most accurate shot that you need to make at that time), that you don't ever make any shot because you get hit and killed first.
So again, it comes down to the definition of accuracy under the specific context.
Only once did I have an issue with an RO. Wouldn't let me draw from my holster. I paid $25 for the apparent "privilage" of shooting at this range. I haven't darkened their door step since. I go where I can do the things I need to do to be as prepared as I feel I need to be. I say find a new range and write a letter to the owner letting him know why your business is going elsewhere.
As Benjamin Franklin left the hall in Philadelphia, he was asked, “What kind of government have you given us, Dr. Franklin?” He replied: “A republic, if you can keep it.”
One I go to is similar, no holster draw, but about half the cost of smolcks range.

I would consider going to another range, but this one is right down the street, and all of the others in the area have the same or similar rules. What I really need to do is find somewhere to shoot outside on public land that where I can train as I wish.

Can be used to search for land with mining claims, rangeland, special forest areas (parks, etc), monuments, etc.
Why not tell him what you are trying to do and ask if he has a better way to learn? Some people are AH's and others are quite willing to help. It may be something simple that you are not seeing.
