Focus Areas

This period was tough – I didn’t factor in holiday travel. My lady and I traveled to visit her folks. The state they live in…let’s just say it wouldn’t have been in my best interest to bring a firearm. That explains the 5-day absence. I have a couple more days of travel soon. Thanks to getting ahead I’m still a tiny bit ahead (20 minutes if my math is right).

Other than that, I’m just starting in on a my year-end review of all skills thus far this year. That’s largely what December will look like. Stay tuned for one or two follow-up articles in very early 2020.

If you aren’t dry practicing. . . WHY NOT? It’s not hard to find 10 minutes a day to dry practice, and it’s COMPLETELY FREE. Take ten minutes you’d be spending vegging out on Instagram or in front of the TV and turn it into a tangible skill.

  1. One thing this series has me doing, if not to your level of practice, is to load up Snap Caps to practice my pocket-revolver draw and reload. I also put a dime on the top strap and practice stroking the trigger without losing the dime.

    Thanks for the series! Keep it up!
