    Holy cow, I thought Lima was a cool lady before, but now I am thinking she is just an alter ego of JD. I have never known any real woman make such a statement, let alone to her own husband!

    I think I'm real! Let me check...

    Yep... I'm real....lol.

    You know what they say about pride... it comes before a fall. I don't have a problem admitting when I'm wrong.

    Now I have to go take pictures of my targets so that I can show my progress..

    He's just lucky cause he found a gal who's not afraid to wash her hands with a hose in her wedding dress...


    Why that's relevant, I have no idea.. I just found the picture, thought it was funny and posted it.. Still waiting for the other one's to upload.... darn internet.

    Well SIXTO, that seems to be your problem. You need to find a REAL woman like I did.

    Okay... here are my pictures...

    First target... I was still pretty hot from work and just shooting. I didn't care. I was also using the weaver stance.



    In this picture I actually started caring and trying other stances.



    Still modifying...



    The above were all at seven yards with a three inch barrel. For the last target I moved to ten yards...
    Last target and pretty happy with it...



    The quarter is for size comparisons...

    Good shooting!

    I think afer a little more practice, and more rounds down range you will be quite happy in the results. I'll pick up more ammo on my way back.

    Limatunes, if I may ask, how did you alter the stance to make it work for you? Just reduce the amount of leaning forward?
    On a slightly related note, at least to all the martial arts references and fighting stance comments, I've said before that in a real emergency, stance is just where ever your feet are when you happen to be shooting. I've modified that slightly to say that one way to improve that stance is to solve the emergency quickly. Any stance is much more comfortable when you aren't be shot at while using it.

    Try a startled stance, look at videos of people in real gun fights and see where they end up, even years after training in a weaver.

    Well, when I got to the range I was actually really ticked off so I just opened fire and I didn't give a crap how I was standing... no surprise.. I was standing how I always do, in Weaver.

    So, after I calmed down, I tried the iso. with a hint of weaver in there and that was VERY awkward.

    At the range I was at there is carpet, and the carpet ends into the concrete which is really the firing line. I put my toes right on the edge, thought "nose over toes," bent my knees, leaned forward, and again, felt like I was going to fall over.

    I straightened out a bit, then tried again, leaning forward, and anchoring my feet just a bit and bending my knees just a bit more.

    I really just kept moving around (leaning more forward, bending my knees some more, rocking on my feet) with my gun in my hands (pointed safely down range, of course) and waited until I felt solid and really planted to my spot. My arms were getting a bit tired, but that's okay.

    I pulled the trigger and landed one in the 10 ring... My first thought was, "Oh darn, now I have to apologize to my husband."...lol. .. No, actually my first thought was, "FINALLY!"

    After that I started getting pretty good groups.

    Sometimes I would loose my stance when I reached for more ammo and it would take me some more moving and shooting to find it again, but all in all I think it was a productive trip to the range.

    Ok, time to start your dry firing again, you know where the snap caps are, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! Work on getting that comfortable spot, soon it will become very natural.
