    My friend Scott and I had a game we would play each time we went to the range. After talking smack for about fifty rounds we would put up fresh targets and start our game. It was a timed fire exercise that started ten rounds left hand only, then ten rounds two handed (gun in left) then ten rounds two handed, gun in right, then ten rounds right hand only. The final ten rounds were five left handed, five right handed. We would do this both slow and rapid fire. The thing that made it really interesting was that we played this game on bullseye targets at about ten yards. After a couple of weeks of this my weak hand really showed some improvement!

    I practice one handed weak and strong side, close and far. I try to be as realistic as possible. Its like only practicing woth both arms extended and closing one eye, its just not practicle for ccw.

    Awsome post brother. AWSOME. Very sound solid wisdom right here!

Is it better to be good or great in one shooting skill or fair in all of them? I know I can only learn one thing at a time. I've only been shooting for a couple of months. and would like to progress in skills. I'm sure it takes quite a while to become even remotely proficient in any one skill much less several of them.
    Honestly if I had to choose wether to bee good at one or only fair at all of them I would choose the latter. I do agree with Shackle though. Believe me it is worth every penny to get profesional training. As I've mentioned before though, if you just cannot afford it at the very least get some credible videos AND books. It beats nothing. It would be a big help to find a good reliable shooting partner who takes SD as seriously as you do.
