I haven't had as much time to keep up with the blog lately, but thought I would take a minute to write about goal setting, and what they can do for a performance driven shooter. I have had a few shooting related goals for a while now, a consistent sub 1 second draw, a consistent sub 2 second reload, a sub 2 second Bill Drill, and a sub 2.5 second draw to a steel popper at 50 yards. I haven't quite attained all of those goals, but I am getting closer. As an example, if you reference this post from May of 2012, my reloads with the same Glock 22 I am shooting now average just over 2 seconds. Compare that to this video, shot a couple weeks ago on the range at a USPSA A-zone.

That is fairly representative of my reloads, hovering in the 1.75 to 1.80 range most of the time. Now instead of a plus 2 second reload being the norm, it is the exception.

Here are videos of all the others. I am not there on all of them, but getting closer.

The improvements are slow coming, and require a lot of training investment getting there, but that is the way this game is played. As we become better shooters, the small incremental improvements take more effort and energy.


  1. Strong goals and strong movement toward them. Great to see the update. Train hard & stay safe!
