First Competition After 2nd COVID19 Lockdown

At last. After many months of waiting I got to go to a range to participate in a competition. In this post I detail the highlights, results, and training insight leading up to the competition.

Execution of the Pistol Less Vacation Training Plan

Vacation is over and I’m back to training with my pistol 🙂 I’m very happy with the amount of physical training I manage to do during the two weeks I was away with my family. As you can see in the tracking table below, I got to do a lot and I feel great physically. As the days went by I could tell I was in better shape and had to hold myself not to push it too far.

Vacation Pistol-Less Training Plan & Progress Report

It is time to take a short summer break with my family and to charge up for the coming school year. There will be competitions (finally!) as soon as I get back, so I want to keep in as good shape as possible while travelling without a pistol. This is what I plan to do:

Balance Experiment Results

Going back to basics and reexamining aspects of my technique that were long integrated is proving successful.

When & Why I Cant My Pistol Sights

In the last weeks of training I’ve been focusing a lot on body sensations and doing basic technique review, going element by element. One of the things I’ve noticed is exactly when and why I cant my pistol sights: this happens when …

Changes, Shape, and Attitude

Not What It Seems

You think this is a good string? It is not what it seems…

Improved Hold, Trigger Comes Next

I shot my control match this morning and it went well. The bad start did not change my attitude and the results show that I have improved my hold and follow through. Coming next week is a lot of trigger work…

Steadier, More Focused, Better Sensations

It is still far from top form, but I can feel it coming 🙂 With the new training plan, this week I’ve seen and felt progress in the slowing down of my traces, how I feel and recall the shots, the tightness of aiming, and making the triggering of the shot a non event in itself. Today I shot a competition and it was much better than last week’s competition. This is what I’m doing and learning.
