    After shooting for 40 years, I still feel I have a lot to learn about the skill. I still learn a bit about teaching from my students.

    If you are ever 100% happy with your shooting performance, you aren't trying hard enough.

    USPSA practice: learned that I am leaving a lot on the table on close targets. Running an rmr. Problem is a combo of letting trigger control go to shit (i can greatly improve accuracy by adding .1s to the press) and poor grip so i had to re-aquire dot.

    Iíve decided to move back to a G19 gen 3 (temporarily, maybe) for carry and competition to re-evaluate objectively my recent choice to move to DA/SA. Iíve been shooting Berettas and Sigs exclusively for maybe a year now, maybe 10,000rnds. Iíve had the G19 for two or three weeks. About 600rnds in, focusing mainly on accuracy and fundamentals. Accuracy wise, I already shoot the G19 as well as a M9A1 on Dot Torture. I shoot it better than the PX4 compact that Iíve been carrying, again on Dot Torture. The G19 has Triji HDís, otherwise stock. The Berettas have lighter hammer springs and red paint on the front sights.

    Very interesting. I have not yet put the Glock on the timer or shot any matches. I anticipate being faster with the M9A1. Iíll probably stick with the hammer guns because putting a Glock in a IWB holster creeps me out. Maybe Iíll consider a striker gun with a safety; not sure yet. But its been an interesting and surprising experiment, thus far, so Iím keeping an open mind. The G19 is a very good gun, for sure.

    You could always check out the Striker Control Device or the Gadget. I think itís the same thing, just different names.

    Agreed, I am a big fan of the Gadget on a Glock. I'd have to open up the safe and count how many, but all of my Glocks have one.

    Great work by Todd Green and Tom Jones creating that doodad and bringing it to market.

    Yeah, I would certainly get a Gadget if I were carrying a Glock permanently. I canít believe it took so long for such a device to come to market.

    I have a caveat for the Dot Torture notes from earlier. After my last post, I went to the range and pushed my Dot Torture targets out further. My scores were pretty disappointing. Not on par with a M9A1. About what I do with compact DA/SA guns. Maybe sight radius was coming into play. Perhaps I was just having a bad day; more research required. Iím going to continue working on fundamentals until I get about a 1,000 rounds in, then pull out the timer for the next 1,000. I have friends that do very strong work with G22/23/17/19 pistols. Maybe I just need to get my $£!• together and elevate my standards.

    One thing that helped me was to buy a ny trigger to train with in dry fire.

    When i hit the range with the stock trigger, i blow through it (in a good way).
    I dont use it all the time, but to get through plateaus. When you can smash a NY trigger and not move the sights, a stock trigger should break clean with no sight movement without thought.

    Good luck.

    Realized how fun .22 rifles can be, especially at an indoor range. Buddies and I brought all our toys (Pistols, Rifles, Suppressors) the indoor range and finished out playing battleship with a single shot 22 with peep sights at 25 yards. More fun than the rest of the range trip as it refocused the fundamentals to make good hits.

    After watching this video of Kurds vs. Turks https://www.funker530.com/gopro-clos...rs-ambush-sc1/
    I realize how important movement and cover are in self defense.
