Welcome to the homepage of Automatic Accuracy!
It's been a while since college Anatomy and Physiology class but to simplify it you need two things for your brain to function happily. They are glucose and water. It's summer here in the US and here in the South the temperatures and humidity are already in the 90's before a match is over. A match may seem like 5 hours of standing around and 3 minutes of action but there still is a draw on your body and you need to keep it fueled up.
Remember, have something to drink that will keep you hydrated (caffeine does not help here) and have something to eat that keeps your blood sugar level during the match.
The birthday boy! Happy birthday to the guy who got it all started, Matthew Mink!
You may not know it but we also have a Facebook page for the shop. You'll find pictures of customer guns, team match videos and some fun discussion among other things. @AutomaticAccuracy if you do the Facebook thing.....
Would you be interested in purchasing an Automatic Accuracy jersey for your shooting sport? It would be just like the team ones but with your name on it and possibly the state flag of your choice.
I see some very loyal customers and friends wearing jerseys from over 4 years ago and am impressed by their tenacity in showing love for the shop. So, would you like an updated look? Reply in the comments yes, no or any questions. Thank you!!
If you're a competitive pistol shooter you're probably obsessed on some level with being "faster". But what exactly does that mean?
First I think you need to know if you mean faster than you are now or faster compared to an outside standard. I think a key to this is record keeping on a level appropriate for your time and personality. You absolutely need to be using a shot timer if you want to get faster, by any definition. You can't rely on feeling or match results. When you're able to know what your time is, and track it relative to time and specific practice then you can see if you're getting faster. Whether measured against yourself or a national champion.
(I can tell you what I shot a Bill drill in 4 years ago, I have it written down. You don't need to be that extreme.)
Secondly, faster at what? Generally we think of the things you do shooting or the non-shooting parts of competition. Want to know your draw, split, transition, reload, movement, total time? Yep, you need a shot timer. Looking at the data from the shot timer you can look at all of this data or just the part pertinent to your current focus, either shooting or non-shooting related aspects of your sport.
Alright, let's sum it up:
- Use a shot timer. Dry fire and or live fire
- Record the data and know your baseline times
- Know what is fast for yourself and what is fast for world class
- Focus on one skill at a time
- Speed can't be forced but it can be learned and trained
- The Paradox of Speed, what feels slow in your mind often is very fast in real life
