    shot a Daniel Defense 300 Blackout rifle down in New Mexico this weekend.....awesome gun, need to build one for that round....also shot a 500 Linebaugh revolver, a 45 Colt repro Low Wall, original custom 45-90 Highwall and a sweet old custom 458 Winchester Magnum previously owned by Ken Howell with a stock that was designed by Elmer Keith...here is me getting ready to bang a steel gong 130 yards away on my first shot with the rifle....that thing was awesome....

    Here's a really crappy iGlitch video of my first match a couple weeks ago. I was doing pretty terribly, but it's OK, I was having fun. PLEASE don't tease me for my bad offhand position, I did notice and fix it right after my friend stopped filming.

    Be nice to the rookie. I'm doing dry fire practice at home, and can hold the front sight still longer. I'm going to a class next weekend.


    Here is the target, at 200 yards, after the match. That's 20 prone, 20 sitting, I think, 10 standing. I forget. All rapid fire, about 3 seconds between shots. No rush.

    that's pretty good accuracy for 200yds with sights!!! I bet you'd do even better if you put your weak hand further down the rifle so you can stabilize it more.

    KT,

    Just an observation based on your target

    Very nice for 200 yds btw!!!

    If your right handed, your target may indicate trigger control issues.... (low and to the right) a corrective training technique for this is place a pencil in the muzzle (wrap tape or something around it to make it fit snug) then balance a dime on the top flat of the pencil. Now do your dry fire exercises and work on keeping the dime from falling. Make sure your finger placement on the trigger is correct, yada yada yada...

    Av, you've nailed the second biggest problem that day. First was lack of follow through. And my stance sucked. I am certainly going to try the dime trick, thanks! I'm also making a point of minding the angle my finger is at.

    I cleaned the screws and tapped holes that attach the sight to the receiver, and then used enough med. Permatex to (hopefully) hold it in place until I can find a better rear sight. Being that it was grease holding in the screws before, I'm fairly confident that the glue will hold. Hopefully.

    Gonna go find a pencil. Tomorrow. It's bed time now.
