    Dime Time. Have you tried shooing with your left hand to see where your shots end up?

    I've been doing the Dime drill every day, along with a lot of other stuff.
    Haven't shot much with left hand yet. Or right hand. I need to get that going if I plan to do a match with the G19....which I do.
    (I might try one-handed shooting tomorrow. I'm a little worried about the recoil, though. LoL. I'll post up the targets for y'alls amusement.)

    What I normally do is shoot first then put the circles on.

    I have a notion that your're not breathing properly and running out of gas. Try firing low round count bursts and then reholster, grab a couple of deep breaths and have another go for a change. If you are trying to fire a full magazine and maintain accuracy you must learn to breathe as you run the gun. No different than snapping green beans if done correctly.

    No drawing from the holster allowed at my range. But I can hold the gun at waist level and do this.
    Breathing: You're giving me yet one more thing to think about, you do realize that, right? LOL. I'll try it out tomorrow.

    Millie. I think I've figured out your problem. Your pre-trigger-pull mental checklist is dragging your brain "back, and to the left".

    "Back and to the left."

    I'm going to tear the place/car apart today to find my magazines for the .22 conversion. I know they're here somewhere. LOL.

    Are you saying I'm thinking too much? I've heard that a few times recently!
    Or am I not thinking enough?

    Ok, so when I go to the range later today, I promise not to think (except about being safe), how's that? I'll let you know what happens.

    Some women like nice men! Those of us who have grown tired of the drama of the "bad boys" and the men who think they're "complicated" like to interact with nice guys....so sue me! LOL.
    (Even better if they're funny and like guns! A few tattoos to ice the cake is good too.....)

    Why didn't you keep the WHOLE conversion together. Why would you seperate the upper and mags

    I dunno -- same reason you don't keep your hats and bloomers in the same place?

    It's a kit it should stay in the box it comes in. Her's is brand new. I don't wear bloomers do you Jt? Plus that was meant for Millie. She needs to keep her accessories together untill she gets use to them . To easy to get stuff mixed up

    Here you go again! What's your deal with me anyway?
    They got separated while I was cleaning out the car out and re-arranging things, okay?
    If you're so smart and organized why don't you meet me at a range and show me some good stuff: How to shoot and how to keep my conversions together. I welcome your input. On both subjects.

    It didn't come in a box. It came in a huge range bag. Too big for me to put in my range bag.

    You need to stop worrying about my .22 conversion kit, and take me up on my offer to have you show me how to shoot. Where/when shall we meet?
