Path to B Class

16 students attended last evening. The good news... we are seeing pretty dramatic improvements in group size at 12 yards, consistent efficient movement, and consistent A zone draws at 7 yards between 1.40 and .95 seconds.

Remember to do your homework! Go ahead and add in drawing from the holster, but remember to do 20 reverse perfect holsterings to remind you of how it should go.

Next week... we do a shorter practice and then also run a 2 classifier match to see where we are. The first one I've decided to include is CM 99-10 "Times Two". It puts together the things we've been working on. You will get one run on it, unless a jam or some other issue happens where I don't think the run reflects your current skill level.

To have a B class score in Production Division you will have to shoot a 5.8679 or better hit factor (points per second).

Example ways to do that...

12 Alphas ... 10.22 seconds
10 Alphas 2 Charlies ... 9.5 seconds
11 Alphas 1 Delta ... 9.5 seconds
10 Alphas 2 Delta ... 8.8 seconds
11 Alphas 1 Miss .... 7.66 seconds

You get the idea. Do your homework, and I will see you next Tuesday!

Also, I'm MD for the USPSA Match this Saturday, so I'll also be happy to guide a squad around the stages. We can arrange that Saturday morning.

Ken N.

P.S. If you aren't a member of USPSA we won't be able to send in your classification data. It is your option. If you want to be a member, join at USPSA.org.

We had 16 for Handgun Mastery Wednesday Intro class this evening. A bit bigger than expected, but fortunately, we had instructors on hand and enough students brought their own guns that we made it work.

Thanks to all who came and to our instructors: Ken, Les, Wolf, Daniel, Kent, Glen, and Joann!

Students had fun, made progress, and left a bit further on the path to Handgun Mastery.. one Wednesday at a time!

The Dixie Cup with 92 spots in the Saturday match schedule, now has 103 signups and the Saturday schedule is full.

It has proved very popular, which is good! But... it does cause some issues, mainly in that not many of our local shooters have signed up yet, and it is intended to be a Club Championship.

If you are local and you want to shoot it, but haven't signed up yet, take heart. You can sign up and shoot it Friday, with staff (or consider being staff - it's fun and helps the club!), or you can shoot it Sunday. If shooting Friday as staff, your match is free. If shooting Friday for schedule, your match is $25 dollars. If shooting Sunday, your match is $25.

We will determine the Club Champion from the results of the 3 days of shooting. The "Dixie Cup" Champion will be from the results of Friday and Saturday, like intended. We will have Dixie Cup trophies for High in Divisions and Categoreis, and we will have SUPS Champion trophies for club champions in Divisions and Categories.

Next year given it's popularity, we may make it a two day match so we can open more spots. But for this year this is the best we can think of.

Thanks - Ken & Glen

Path to B Class Update

It went well tonight with 15 students. 3 were missing for travel or other obligations, so next week we should approach 20 future B (or higher) class shooters!

I wish I'd taken a picture, but I didn't! So I'll use this picture of the motto of Practical Shooting - Diligentia Vis Celeritas or "Accuracy Power and Speed". Most of the games we play in practical shooting make trades between accuracy (how well you shoot), speed (how fast you shoot and move to targets), and power (how big a round you shoot).

Tonight we started with grouping fire - how small a group can we make (Diligentia). We saw SIGNIFICANT group reductions from past weeks. The dry fire is helping folks - keep it up!

Then we got into Celeritas - speed. We had given some eye drills to work on, and we saw that helping with speed between targets. And we also worked on moving fast, arriving ready to shoot, and leaving positions as early as we can. Then we worked on the draw, getting many students below or near 1 second to an A zone at 7 yards. This is key to doing well on classifiers.

Handling Power, or Vis, goes to fundamentals of grip and stance. So with some students, that had grip issues causing excessive muzzle flip, we worked on establishing a connected grip that controlled flip much better using leverage and skeletal structure.

Then we end, as always with accuracy, as the saying goes... "accuracy is final".

Thanks for your attentions - please do your homework! It is the same as last week's with the addition of 2 sets of 20 reps of lifting the gun from high ready to aiming. Remember, start aiming, go back to high ready,make sure your gun is still at the sight alignment angle, rise up to the target, make sure sights are still aligned.

See you next week!

Regards,

Ken N.

P.S. A lot of you are ready to help instruct at Wed Night Lady's Clinics. Let me know if you are interested. Help is always welcome!
