My queued up blog post ideas are thin on the ground...
I had some good fodder when I woke up but I didn’t jot down notes. Now those thoughts have evaporated like spilt beer on an DC street in August.
When I intend to go to the range I have decisions to make. I have to decide what gun or guns to bring, and how to improve my woefully inadequate shooting skills.
Obviously, selecting a likely CCW gun is high on the priority list. Not that I can do much CCW here. If I carried every day the carry piece would and should get 75% of the target time, at least. But no, I can mix up the selection in Maryland.
Right now the favorite is the new Colt Commander, natch.
Ok. Now the more important bit. How do I improve my shooting. Well the big obvious thing is working on the surprise break trigger pull. Which is surprisingly hard to do. I think this next time I will also try to shift my trigger finger placement so the face of the trigger is closer to the tip. It’s an SA gun, I want to get SA performance, and you don’t need much finger to work it. And since I pull it low and right, maybe my supporting Right Hand will be placed so as to push a bit up and left. Maybe I can counteract the flaw that way. I think this means of correction is a shot in the dark, so to speak, but it doesn’t hurt to try the theory out.
