2019JAN Group range day.
While I completely flaked like a baby due to snow/ice, 8 of the crew got together in greener pastures and burned it down.
I’m posting the log, paraphrased, as sent to me
Cold start diagnostic was “The Test” as popularized by Hackathorn and Vickers. A few came in later than 10 seconds at 13.6 as the last shot. 3 Scored 90 or better and passed. Target was North Georgia Pie Plate targets that are close to the size required for the black of a B-8.

First practice session of 2019.
I was never a fan of New Years Resolutions, because you probably should of already been doing that stuff anyway.
Continuing to focus on things I’m not that great at.
I ran the Guerrilla Approach Eye Exam cold.

New Years Eve 2018.
I had limited range facilities, targets and ammo.
I started cold with 2 10 round runs @ 25 yards from the draw. Less than stellar results into a 6″ circle. I had approximately 6 misses outside of the circle out of both runs.
I then ran The Test again and passed.
Draws and 1 handed reloads were worked from concealment. One of the better draw times from 7 below.
After being snowed in for several days, I couldn’t take it. With help from 4×4 lo, I threw some stands in the truck and hit range on the back 40.
I wanted to further diagnose and confirm the Point of Aim/Point of impact difference with a G19 with a set of Y notch sights. They are indeed hitting 1″ low atleast to 7 yards. I shot groups from 3-7, then shot the same groups again with another G19. The Y notch gun is 1″ low on every group. The other G19 is dead nuts.
This is annoying because I do like the sites, but its one of these issues that will eat at me. I’ll be switching to Sevigny Carry sights which are a favorite of mine or Dawson’s.
I then shot modified dot torture from 4yd. The main focus was on single hand only shooting.
Since the range was covered in snow and ice and is slightly on a slant, I didn’t want to move to much. So I shot “The Test” 3 separate times. Results below, scored B-8’s. Score on left, time on right.
I then put up a fresh B-8 and worked mechanics. Rifle transitions to pistol. I tried to set the pistol mags up as 1R1’s. All work was from the 15yd line.
Moved to steel. 6″ circle plate, 15 and 25 yards. This was single hand only and weak hand only shooting. Weak hand shooting is a true weak point of mine, and I need to hit it more. I set up a bunch of unknown condition type stuff to work malfunctions and reloads.
I then finished with 5 shot strings on the steel at 25y with fairly decent hit rates.
This will probably be the last live fire practice session of 2018.
Proctor Pistol Process “The Fundamentals of Fast”
The Proctor Shooting Process is an in-depth and cerebral approach covering how to shoot Fast-Accurate-Easy.
The process teaches an understanding of and how to master these 5 components
My facility has 6 pistol bays including a shoot house. The pistol bays all have steel targets set up in them (over 100) During the course we will utilize all of the bays, allowing shooters to get in a lot of quality reps without standing in line waiting to shoot.
NOTE: Targets and ranges may vary when I travel to other ranges for this course. I do always strive to keep shooters engaged and getting the best investment for their time rather than waiting in line.
Bring what YOU need to shoot and take care of your body during an active and fast paced day on a range outdoors.
Pistol- G19 sized or full-sized pistol
Kydex or Injection molded Holster, OWB preferred, IWB is also acceptable- NO LEATHER OR NYLON HOLSTERS
5 pistol mags and 4 pistol mag pouches recommended. Minimum 3 mags and 2 mag pouches
1500 rounds of pistol ammo minimum.
After registration students will receive an email with further information including schedule, range location area information etc.
