    I learned I'm a canter a few months ago. I thought I was pretty good at keeping the gun level with the horizon---nope. Scope bubbles have improved my scores a lot on both bolt and semi rifles. It's amazing how just a little cant throws shots off target.

    I'm done with full-power .357 loads from small revolvers.

    When I carry my Ruger LCR .357 it's loaded with medium-power .357 mag loads. Golden Sabre 125 gr or Hornady Critical Duty 135 gr.

    I hadn't run "real" .357 mag loads from it in months. I had some Hornady 158 gr XTP and 125 gr XTP to try out. Ouch. Firing the 5 rapid fire at 7 yds I would get mixed A and B zone hits with the 158's. All A zone hits with the 125's but both loads hurt. It's actually a concern that if my hands were wet or blood or I didn't have a full grip on the gun it could actually leave me hand in a bad situation.

    The medium .357 loads and Rem. 110 gr SJHP loads I use to practice with are much easier on the hand and easier to get hits with. (Although the 110 gr practice loads hit lower and lower the further the range)

    No more full-power .357 loads from small revolvers for me.

    Shot competition for the first time last weekend. I was already fairly aware of this, but it really drove home the point that I don't focus on my front sight at all when stressed. I spent the entire rest of the day forcing myself to think of nothing else.

    When my aim sucks, I drop back to .22's, to work out proper trigger control, stance, grip, etc.

    I was pushing left with my 1911's lately. NOT, down & left - just, level, but left. TOO firm a grip! Dropped back to my Ruger Mk.III, and worked on gripping the frame, W/O 'crushing' it!

    Was also pleasantly impressed with my red dot (Aimpoint) and my .22AR the other day. My eyesight is not the best, but I've done a good job of sighting in my dot. Where IT is, the bullet goes. I'm at an indoor range up here in the frozen tundra presently, so the dedicated .22AR let's me work on all the proper fundamentals during the winter.

    What have you learned about your shooting lately?

    Finally figured out why people say the dot is slower than irons until you really learn it. I have probably about 700 rounds behind either a DPP or RMR on a Glock but have never consistently struggled to find the dot off the draw until shooting it in competition for the first time. It got better as the nerves died off but I definitely need more practice.
