Would you guys mind if I quote you two, and I do an article on it on my blog sometime?
    Go ahead I don't mind at all. The more people are aware the better.

    Here is some inspiration from your good old Uncle Scrapper: Point Shooting and Sighted Fire: Why Should We Care?

    This particular blog entry may be a bit too competition oriented, but it still relates to the skill of shooting.

    Report of my second match: things I've learned.

    Match Report - First Coast IDPA #2 6/4/11

    Short summary:
    Things I worked on this event:
    1. engaging the targets as fast as I can while making all the shots.
    2. moving on. driving the gun to the next target. No dwelling to check hits.
    3. visualizing the course of fire as detailed as I can.

    Things to work on
    1. keep working on visualizing, taking care to not skip any mandated movements like moving while firing
    2. practice moving while firing so it is one of the movements I am used to. I can do this dry firing too
    3. I want to work on calling the shots - knowing where my round went just from the sight picture at the moment of release
    4. I want to work on tracking my sights better because I think it will help me speed up my firing
    5. Getting rid of my excess movements, including wasted movement from driving the gun improperly and too fast.
    6. I did pretty well with relaxing; my experience as an amatuer kickoxer helps me very much in staying cool and focusing on the job on the hand. But I don't think anyone can overdo this, so I will continue to try and relax.

    I have more things I've been working on that may be more important than the ones I mentioned above, but I'll make a separate post about that later.
