Had done almost 30 minutes of dry practice at range last Sunday and feel front sight focus is going better :) Will definitely continue Insha-Allah.

A lesson for rest of my life... Always treat your gun as Chambered! Even if its empty and you checked it personally and then placed on shooting station and after 5 mins you have to hold the gun again.. check it again with your eyes if the gun us Chambered or empty.

If you haven't cleaned it yet, bring along a Carb spray and a WD-40. I'll run you through the routine personally :)

Cheers...

I learnt not to waste ammo and just head back home if you don't find yourself in the right mindset to shoot.

Keep the 20 rounds for the time when you are 100% up for water-tight groups ONLY!!! Anything less than that, dry firing is the way forward...

Cheers...

I was flinching while practicing, there was no issue in dry firing and it was pointed out by my Coach-SA with the reason that I am holding the handgun tight in anticipation of recoil.

Will now be put efforts to overcome the problem.

Thank SA for dedicating huge portion of your time to help me improving.

I was not focusing on each shot. Result 3 on target and 2 blondes in every string. Need to focus more n more in each shot.

Learnt that a correction in stance plus better trigger control is now resulting in 90% shots on the plates at 25m, with less time between next target acquisition ... dry firing practice on Walther P22Q is out of question so improvement at range is encouraging. Still firing with deliberate grip and hope to start single handed soon.

And using cheaper Federal ammo for range, and retaining better ammo like CCI and Eley for SD.

A good, relaxing night's sleep is crucial for the morning's range session.

:arrow: Mind is much more focused as the body has had the much needed rest.
:arrow: Focusing on the front sight is easier.
:arrow: Body aches are minimum to assist in stance.
:arrow: Sleeping early at nights means waking up early (punctuality!).

Cheers...

Learnt yesterday:

- Surprise break is very important as when you anticipate that you are breaking the shot one may flinch and jerk the handgun;
- Good breathing within shots and strings;
- Take some rest (if time permits) within strings;
- Try to forget a bad shot and happy emotions after a good shot too, both are distracting to a shooter;
- Ignore whats happening around and chats going on.
