Glock 19 FDE
115 grain Reloads
Weather: 70 degrees with off and on rain

-25 yard Bullseye 10 rounds
-50 total points in 34.90 seconds.
-Felt like something was off. Maybe it was the rain but my concentration was not there. 34.90 and 50 points is a direct result from lack of concentration.

-Torture Dots @ 4 yards
-45/50
-Missed 4 weak hand only (#8). Got a little cocky and felt I was going to clean the target. Had a good group just not in the circle. Missed 1 on #9. Still frustrated from missing 4 from the target before and jerked the very first shot before a reload.

-Draw 1 round on 3x5 card at 7 yards. 1.5 sec Goal
*=Miss
-2.05 -1.78
-2.19 -1.82
-1.78 -1.79
-1.60* -1.75
-1.83 -1.79
-Felt good that I made a lot of hits but the draw can move a bit faster. This is an improvement over the last time doing this drill. My average this time was 1.84. Last time my average was 2.02. Dry fire helped... A LOT.

-Draw 2 rounds on 3x5 at 7 yards. 2.0 sec goal
*=Miss
-2.26* -2.24
-2.41* -2.29*
-2.21* -2.10*
Hit every first shot but missed the follow-up shots. Most misses were low left.

-Dave Spaulding 15 to the 3rd drill on 3x5 at 5 yards. 12.0 sec goal
-11.26 1 miss
-11.12 3 misses
-11.62 1 miss
Not sure where I threw the shots. Felt great moving and getting settled at each position.

- Shoot 1 slide lock reload 1 on 3x5 at 7 yards.
-Didn't use a timer. Wanted to work the motion before putting it on a timer. Also trying out ETS 22 round magazine as spare carry mag. Did this 10 total times for 20 total shots fired. Missed 2 shots after the reloads.

-25 yard Bullseye 10 rounds
-77 total points in 18.57 seconds.
-Much better that the first round. Maybe I was warmed up. I am still having trouble with the proctor sights. The rear notch seems small. Going to keep them on the gun until the end of the month and make a better educated decision if I should change.

***In the future try to save the shot targets to upload here.***

Today I was very tired and I noticed it when trying to find the front site. Especially at 25 yards. The front sight was getting blurry because my eyes were tired. Very disappointed with my performance at 25 yards.

Was not trying to too much accuracy. Using this to try and increase speed. The target was the center circle of the FAST target.

Torture Dots at 4 yards
46/50
2 misses on #2, 1 miss on #5 and 1 miss on #8.
Need to take my time on this drill. I get in a hurry and try to add speed. I need to remember that this is an accuracy drill and not a speed drill. Take your time and get perfect sight alignment and sight picture before pressing the shot.

After those 3 drills I spent a lot of time shooting 2 inch dots with one hand only (Weak and Strong). Then moved out to 50 yards and shot 8" steel. I did make hits at 50 but nothing consistent.

I was trying out a new hand load. I do not think it is that accurate. I will not be using this load in the future.

Major Take Away
Grip really makes a difference. Make sure you get a good grip and lock it down. On the 2x2x2 drill when I got a good tight grip my groups were tight. Need to focus on grip in dry practice and get into speed mode with the draw and 1 reload 1.
