Qualifier coming up on Saturday

Saturday at CCSC, I'll be shooting my qualifier as part of the monthly match. The last couple of weekends, I've been working on weak and strong hand only shooting at 7 yards. I'm not a terrible shot at those ranges, but still not very accurate. I used 3 right hand shooting charts and set them up with one on each hook and then taped another target to the bottom. This way I could work at shooting 3 targets quickly while trying to maintain an accurate sight picture. I wound up shooting 42 rounds each with the strong and weak hands, then used the last 16 rounds to shoot quickly two handed. Put all 100 rounds on the paper, but had a handful fall "outside" the designated targets. I have the same issue I have shooting with two hands. Low and left when strong handed, and low and right when weak handed. Guess it's going to take more practice. Just ordered another 1000 rounds as I'm getting low, so at least I'll have something to practice with.

I'm also keeping most of my brass. I'm thinking that someday, I may want to reload my ammo and save some money. Leaning towards a Dillon 650 system, but still investigating/salivating. Maybe if there's a Christmas bonus this year (yeah, dreaming).

That's it for me. Remember, shoot safe, shoot straight!
