not only that, but for me, 1 or 2 boxes of ammo at best go to the range.I myself don't shoot fast, makes no sense to me, unless its a self defense situation, you see on all these gun shows how the pull the trigger as fast as they can, why.......makes no sense unless its just for the camera
5” and 3” targets in one on a 8.5 x 11 paperThere is a balance between speed and accuracy. You cannot miss fast enough to win. If you are outrunning your ability to hit, slow down until you are getting consistent hits. I have seen too many students show up wanting to go fast but missing a lot. Its one of the things I do not like about timed competitions-competitors can miss targets but still win if they are going fast enough.
You own responsibility for every round you fire and every one of them is going to hit something before it stops. 70-75% accuracy is not good enough.
Shoot for accuracy and speed will come. You also need to do some precision work also because you may have only a small portion of the target to work with. Failure drills, the Mozambique drill is a step in the right direction but work beyond that for the best precision you can manage, as quick as you can.
Your speed/accuracy balance will depend on skill and will, your gun, and gear, but age is a factor. So I am saying in a nutshell, go as fast as you can, but do not sacrifice accuracy to do so.
Amen Brother. Repetitive Training 2 rounds, holster, 3 rounds holster. Center mass, always center mass Gun Control is hitting the center mass to stop the threat DRT(dead right there)...but you go home later to your wifeAccuracy
Beating your opponent to the first shot, accurate and ON TARGET !!!
We run speed drills all the time, but we learned the skill of accuracy first.
Speed means nothing if you can’t hit the target.
This is why learning to shoot while moving is so important. You dont need 1” groups, but you better have speed and ability to hit on target while not making yourself a big fat target either.
