    There is no substitute for learning sound fundamental technique and no path to retain them and improve performance without consistent practice of same.
    I was taught to respect my elders! The problem is, I'm having a much harder time finding them these days .

    I want to clarify something in my post 70.

    The Lt. was the second person I've trained who told me they weren't sure how to hold the gun, they'd been given so much different advice about pressure on grip with each hand, positioning of the forward thumbs. The other was an nra instructor who writes articles for concealed carry mag. He actually mentioned this in his review of the training out here with me, and that he'd solved that issue while with me by changing his grip [ and he's since gone back to forward thumbs from other articles I've seen of his ].

    If anyone had noticed, in almost all of my posts I emphasize proper grip for most shooting issues.
    I make no claim to be an expert, but have learned much from a few on this forum!

    I have nothing against training. I see Cooper's name has been mentioned indirectly. Thus I ask this question who or whom trained Cooper the father of the "Modern Technique"? Then I ask who trained the trainers whom are active at this point in time in regards to firearms usage and employment? I realize the NRA, Military, Law enforcement and private citizens etcetera contribute but to what recognized standards? Not meant to stir the pot just a question.

    I'm an expert in things that don't work, at least in my own case.

    There are no standards with the exception of competition.

    I agree! But it would be nice if there were base line standards.

    Better gear/guns/triggers can make you shoot better.

    But they don't make you a better shooter. The fundamentals are the same with a 2lb trigger or a 7 lb trigger.

    Right. Good gear will not overcome poor fundamentals.

    There are lots of baseline standards: time; distance; shot groups, etc. It all becomes a matter of subjective priorities beyond the safety basics. Some people are perfectly content to remain with hits on torso-sized targets at bad breath range. Others aspire to and work toward much more.

    Thank you. When I returned from my tour and was with some friends, a certain person spit on the back of my head and called me a baby killer. I guess he didn't expect a elbow to the nose. My best friend later told me he lost two teeth.

    I don't remember my exact quote, but told him if he had a problem, settle it face to face, not behind my back.

    I know we are hijacking the thread, and I apologize. I argued with a liberal who said Vietnam vets being mistreated when they got home was all an urban myth. He should have gotten some dental work too. I started at Kent State in Sept. 1970 right after the May 4th shootings. Needless to say, I wasn't the most liked or well treated person there.
    Drop me a pm if you want so we don't get this topic too far off.

    There are some "established" par times for some drills, but that's about as close as I've seen.

    There's a pretty good collection of them here:
