    Thanks! I'm happy that I kept it all on the paper, but I know I'll be getting an earful tomorrow for not keeping it in the black. I'll do better next time. In two weeks is the monthly match, and anything high power goes. I'll have the pants shot off me, but I intend to improve on today. Essentially, I am competing with myself.

    You summed that up very nicely. Until I can get equipment that can compete with the boys, I am only competing against myself. Unless I start out-shooting them, then it's game ON. <-- Lil

    Lil, do you do any dry practice at home? Lots of dry fire helped me a ton, that and I would suggest not using your magazine for support, and look up using your sling as part of the support. Can't tell if you are doing that or not. Just a few suggestions, if you have someone else teaching you disregard what I said and listen to them.

    Competing against yourself is the best way to go.

    I am about to start. Yes, I was using the sling. It's hard to see, it's OD green and narrow. I might put the leather one back on, it has a loop, where the as-issued style cotton strap can't make a loop.

    Yes, I have someone helping me, and I bet he's about to suggest the same thing.

    Hands off the magazine? Why? I'm not trying to be obstinate, I just want to know the why's of it all. I think that the sling was still too loose, and that's why I was grabbing the magazine, to pull my arm in even tighter and try to get some tension on the damn thing. Again, thinking very hard about putting that leather sling back on.

    I liked my 1917 sling on my 1903A4 clone, to give you an example of how I used it, here is a random pic from the web.


    I recommend getting off the magazine, because with your hand on the stock, there is more meat to gun contact, which typically means you should be more stable.

    Dry practice is invaluable, just check, and double check your weapon and move all ammo to another room.
