"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Just three weeks until the start of the match we've all been waiting for, Production Nationals. Automatic Accuracy's founder and President Matt Mink will be there and ready to tear it up again!
We hope to see some of you there as well and hope your match is awesome as well. (They need to update the date on their logo....)
From the mind of multi time national champion, Matt Mink. "When you're looking at your match results online and comparing yourself to others, compare yourself to the person who won your division. Not your buddy who just barely beat you, not the guy who won your classification but the person who won your division. This is the person who did the best and in whose comparison you'll gain the most knowledge about what you need to improve in your own shooting. You want to aim to beat the best person, not the next person."
If shooting something like IDPA that requires "cover" then pick your spot on the ground such that you can see it, and hit it, moving quickly. You don't want to be staring down at the ground thinking, "Am I in the right spot?"
If shooting around a wall you can't see through then pick a scratch, mark or whatever that is equal in height to where you want to shoot the first target around its edge. Have the gun mounted at the proper height, again to reduce the time you waste looking around instead of shooting.
If you're just taking a few steps, do not dismount the gun. Keep it up and at the right height. If running into the shooting position bring the gun up during your deceleration phase so that as you plant, you can shoot.
Look ahead, if you can see your target as you move through the open or through the barrier because it is see through, use this to your advantage. Have your eyes up and on the target well before you're even at the shooting position. Your peripheral vision and stage plan visualization will have you land in the right spot.
Do all you can to minimize the effect a barricade has on your visual processing so that you can get to the shooting sooner.
I'm setting up a link where you'll be able to order a copy of our basic team jersey and have the ability to add your name and state flag. So hold on, it is happening and in process!
When it is all ready you'll see the link here and Facebook. Where you are following us, right? @AutomaticAccuracy
Walls, metaphorically and physically, impede your progress and block your vision. If you're making an effort to improve your competition shooting then you need to learn how to deal with both of them effectively. Here are a few tips on how to deal with both of them.
- Use positive self talk. Frame statements in a positive tone. Track positive information. For example say things to yourself or out loud like, "I trust my talent" or "I'm great at distant shots" or "Only pull the trigger on an appropriate sight picture". Track the number of A's or -O hits versus looking at misses.
- When you plan out your live fire practice honestly assess where you need to improve and work on those skills more than the things you are currently good at. Yes I know, everything needs to be better but you'll see the greater gains working on where you're weak rather than where you're strong.
- Look through them. You don't have to be Superman to do this as most walls in matches are some type of fencing or mesh material. Before you arrive or start shooting look through the wall at your target, seeing it as early as possible. The sooner you see a target the sooner you can shoot it.
- Solid wall or shooting IDPA? As you get your walk-through find a reference point on the wall that corresponds to where the target will be when you look around the wall. Almost every barricade or wall edge has nicks, marks, scuffs or whatever that you can use for this purpose. Watch carefully and you might even catch a person making their own...
