    Finally got a low light class in which wasn't groundbreaking, but good practice. I think my biggest takeaway was for really tough shots, I like being able to put the X300U on constant on and utilize a normal grip. It didn't take much extra time but did seem to make a difference when its dark AF, the distance is 15 yards or so, its a low percentage shot, and I'm on the clock. For closer stuff the momentary worked better than I expected, but I was using the PHLSTER ARC which probably helped.

    I recall having a discussion on the board about "slapping the trigger" when firing pistol rapidly at close range.

    I disagreed with the method.

    Well I found that while firing rapidly at close range and moving i would occasionally fail to let the trigger reset because i want constant control of the trigger.

    My solution was to be certain I'd fully released the trigger by letting my finger just come off it before pressing it again.

    Yup, a firm hold on the pistol, slapping the trigger, and getting a "good enough" front sight covering the target is the way to get very short split times (.12-.17) and hits without short-stroking the trigger.

    Nice. 0.12 on a pistol is smoking.
