    Yep that is crazy fast. I wonder how many tens of thousands of rounds they have fired to get that fast?

    The thing is, like racing, it's easy to get to a certain speed, then it gets harder and harder for diminishing gains. I spent a lot of time on steel last year and was getting smoke and hope down in the low 2 second mark, with my fastest run at 2.01.

    These guys are doing it in 1.7 or there abouts, it would take a lot of time to drop that extra 3 tenths of a second.

    Yep I hear you. I was watching a Max Michel video and he said he started shooting at 7 or something and would spend a couple of hours dry firing every night. That and being on the Army shooting team for 10 years or so would give him heaps of time to get fast.
    I haven't got a hope.

    You will be surprised how much you can improve with a little bit of work. Although if you're talking about becoming world champ, well that is a different kettle of fish.

    After what l learned last time, Oz can kick me all he wants. 😆

    Just watching how fast the fucker moves and transitions has had me working overtime on my fitness.

    Don't know what I could do about my clumsiness but I am fitter and lighter than I have been for a while 😆

    Like the old cliche in sport, do the simple things well and the rest will follow. I hope to one day be fast and accurate enough to overcome my lack of coordination. But that might be wishful thinking 😆

    Yep working on a few things. Been using my wife's Ratans to try and build up arm strength and co-ordination. Also been looking at a few drills to improve foot speed.

    Don't forget to work on moving in different directions. Everyone has a tendancy to practice the things they like/ that are easy. Work on moving left, right, uprange going left and right, and downrange. As well as reloads every way.

    I'm still surprised how many people I see planning a stage around being able to reload going the direction they like. Even when that plan is stupid.

    Saw a good drill where there are 4 boxes in a square about 15yd apart. You have to fire a shot at a plate from each square. You have to move after every shot even if you miss. Keep going until you've shot 10 plates. I'll see if I can find the video.

    I am sure he walks back towards the cameraman with a loaded gun after the miss on his run.
    Maybe rules are different in the states.

    Yep wasn't to flash.
    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!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
