    B Cat Holder Wanted!!

    Hiya,

    I am looking for a bit of a shooting coach in Wellington area, specifically for pistol shooting.

    Very keen on getting some know-how from someone who might own a Glock or similar (Buretta 9mm or other 9mm for example). Preferably serving NZ Police or past Police member. Please PM if you are interested - will return your effort with some baked goods for the family, will pay for ammo.

    Cheers

    Dougie

    She loves the free fresh wind in her hair; Life without care. She's broke but it's oke; that's why the lady is a tramp.

    Dougie, if I was you I'd head to the closest IPSC club - there is one near Seddon (Heretaunga Pistol Club), probably one out Porirua way as well.

    You can shoot to your hearts content, it will be practical, and no offence to service police members, but the typical member at your local IPSC club would have fired about 100 times more rounds and be in a much better position to coach you... unless you want training in police specific firearms procedures...

    Kind of do want some specific police training advice

    I sit next to the AO at work, he agreed with me today that perhaps if I was a bloke and wore trousers and rocked up to a range and said "hey I want some help", I might get two genuine guys that could help me. But in my current position...I might get two genuine guys that could help, also mixed in with six weirdo guys that are, well, weird.

    Care to chaperone me?

    Dougie guys aren't weird. Women just don't understand them.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    most gun guys are weirdo's... haven't you learnt anything ?

    when mrs ebf gets her act together about joining heretaunga you can go with her, she takes no prisoners (no comments from the peanut gallery kiwi39 !)

    see what you can arrange, will have to fit in with a fairly hectic target shooting calendar between now and feb... would be fun to have a blat with a glock again

    Maybe I should just take Mrs Safkiwi? That might be a better option. I just have my eyes on the top shot trophy. That requires practice.

    Suggestion : grip. Move left hand up so the web of your left hand between thumb and 1st finger is making the contact with the bottom edge of the trigger guard. That'll help you straighten out your right thumb and stop your left hand curling under the magazine. Can check grip by pulling your right hand away and gripping only with your left hand, should still be able to have a firm grip with just your left (weak) hand.

    They might be, but they will have undertaken the tests that I want to ace..

    If you want to shoot pistol well get a PISTOL shooter to teach you, not a cop. If you are taught properly first time and you avoid developing bad habits (hence not a cop for a teacher) your shooting skill will naturaly flow onto any practical test that the cops do.
