    19ED77AF-A90A-4176-8BAD-548B182E1844.jpeg Made the par time, blew it again. 100% cold. Only perfect shot was 7yds. Post up your results, time and distance is on the homer system. Once I’m at 80-90 proficient I’m going to take my skillz to @Geezer and @BatteryOaksBilly. Coming back with some of their stuff if they dare to challenge the majicman.

    He is one tough bastard! BUT only if you try him. If you never try him, he's Easy, nothing to that at all, doesn't mean a thing!

    Ain’t that the truth. By the end of a session it’s not that bad. Go a week without shooting and try it 100% cold,,,,,, he's a bad man. Sitting right here in my recliner I win every time:)

    • Well the good news is the top circle is 3” so first 3 shots counted. Bad news is my final shoot is somewhere in Cumberland County. Maybe it went through the same hole:D F08F8FA9-D338-4335-AA49-BE5F262C9B99.jpeg

    I'll be happy to get all the shots in any length of time. I keep falling out on shot #3, it's aggravating. I'm going to go real slow and get the shots, and when I can do that reliably, then I can try to up the speed....I'm slow, or "deliberate" as I've heard it called! lol.
    Nice shooting there, btw.

    I think I’m going to go to 3 or 3.5 par times until I can do it consistently

    Consistency is my main problem....unless you count being consistently inconsistent as a good thing....at least it's a form of consistency, I guess...lol

    You do better than most on here, I honestly don’t think most members shoot at least once a month

    Surprisingly, one of my many new stumbles is with my clear & draw. I'm having to skin a lot more metal than I was before. First world problems!

    Yeah, I caused a big ruckus with a thread about how more of us need a lot more practice and/or training.
    I didn't mean to, but I think if we're carrying guns on our persons, we owe it to the other people nearby to be able to hit ONLY the bad guy. But that idea got lost in the 2A discussion....oh well, I tried.
    Maybe they can all be brilliant shooters and shoot once a month, lucky them....I can't, so I keep going to the range at least twice a week. lol.

    For those who don’t know here what the Wizard consist of
    All at 2.5 par times. This drill is only 5 shots. You have to shoot this cold, no air gunning or practice draws.

    1st shot strong hand only 3yd
    2nd shot 1 or 2 handed 5yd
    3rd shot 1 or 2 handed at 7yd
    All shots should be in a 4” circle
    It where it gets really hard
    Shots 4 and 5 in a 8” circle at 10yds within Within the 2.5 par time
    Good luck

    All are done from concealment

    I just like shooting myself:). I’m going to read the rest of that thread. I’m guessing it was your “show me your targets” thread.

    Nope that was a follow up. i think the ruckus was on one I did called Handgun training.
    But I did want all the guys to whip 'em out! And they have, so far. lol. I hope this doesn't get moved to the basement.

    Yep, looks like a double to me;)

    And I'll have you know that yesterday at Battery Oaks the wizard kicked my azz and kicked it good. Shameful it was.

    Didn't get a picture of the target, but did beat the wizard today. Used the G19 instead of the G17.

    Exactly....a couple of things
    1. We had nothing to do with this drill's inception. The rules are not Ours. They are Just the rules.
    2. It is not and never was a competition. It is a test to help You see if your chosen platform will work for You.
    3. It is overtly deceiving in it's simplicity.
    4. IF you choose to carry daily, and I do. You should only try the Wizard in the manner you carry. Anything else is meaningless in This drill.
    5. If you choose to pocket carry the "rules" allow for you to start with your hand on the gun. NOTHING is faster. BUT remember, by choosing to pocket carry you immediately make it more difficult for yourself because of using a Much smaller gun. *
    Remember what it's for...not bragging rights because it Only is a test of YOU and Your PLATFORM.

    If you do this from Concealment and Cold and never get it done, use those results to help you choose a system that Will let you do it.
    It has proven hard for us. We have 2 Black Shirt wearers for doing it. I will be happy to give all one who do it here. I hope you wear it as a source of pride. NOT in your ability to shoot, but to take results and rethink your system.

    The Wizard awaits.



    *
    I can do the Wizard about 80% of the time using a full size gun. About 40% using a pocket gun. Since I always pocket carry, the results with the full size gun are meaningless to me.

    I got to the final line but missed one of the two shots and my time was over. I didn’t have a clean draw and so adjusted grip as my hands came together costing me time and just plain missed on one of my shots. I was still happy with how I preformed.

    Yeah and I’m very pleased with my progress.

    Of course, I’ve made some tiny modifications.

    Not cold
    Not from concealment
    Not my carry gun
    Not so far away
    Not such small plates
    Not against the clock.

    Looking forward to trying it with my pocket carried Smith 442 when I get home. And since I carry in the off hand pocket, it will be firing weak hand.

    And, that's how it's done. @Butter came soooo close. All good hits with the last stage at 2.55, only .05 over the time limit. And Butter was using his carry gun.

    After watching @Butter shoot, I’ve asked Nancy to keep him well supplied with cookies.

    I don’t wanna piss him off. :eek:

    This is a pic of my latest failed attempt.
    And since I seem to be as accurate strong hand only as freestyle I had decided to shoot the 3 to the head strong hand. I rushed it. Had plenty time left over on those shots. Just need to slow down a bit and refine that picture just a tick.
    Rushing again I fumbled the draw on the 10 yd line but still tried to deliver.
    Bad hits and over par. Fail.
    Try again another day. 20191023_112134.jpg

    I didn't get a chance to shoot the wizard Saturday at the BO M&G, but went back Sunday to hang out for a few. I went out and tried it on the new target setup. I've only shot the wizard at Billy's place, and I've cleared it once, but not cold, with a RMR'd G-19. Now I'm shooting a G-48, appendix, just as always. The first shot on the new target, yep, I missed, hitting the damn wood that the steel circle mounts on. Talk about embarrassed, in front of Billy, Carl, and Uncle Jerry, not even close to the word to use. Even though it doesn't count, I did try a few more times, and made to it the 10 yrd double shot, and missed one of those too. So, I have some work to do. Hoping to try it tomorrow if the weather holds off here. Thing inspires me, and p!$$es me off at the same time, lol. Love it.

    No reason to be embarrassed @Stick Man. I really don't think anyone is judging. And I personally don't care if they do. At least we're trying.:)

    Tried again today.3 yds strong hand.
    20191102_160643.jpg
    5 yds strong hand.
    20191102_160805.jpg
    7yds strong hand.
    20191102_161022.jpg
    I'm pretty sure I sneaked that one right in between #1 & #2. Can we just say I'm shooting groups now and call it good? Ha! Sheer luck. I couldn't shoot that group intentionally no matter what. And then...
    20191102_161149.jpg
    FAIL! massive fail.
    Every time I put weak hand to the gun look out. And took 2.74 to do it???....
    Wizard says "Go home shooter, try me again another day."

    I've done "paper Wizards" at the range, but no timer and no drawing, so though I did get the 5 shots, I haven't "got" the Wiz yet. I hope to get all the shots at B. Oaks soon, on the timer, but I won't be fast. lol.

    OK, took my shot at the Wizard yesterday. All shots under par time but hurried the last 2 and threw one. If I would of slowed down I may have beaten him. This was with my P365 from pocket carry start. Times were 1.72, 1.82, 1.72, and 2.3. Maybe next time.
