    By all means, support warhorse. But being the original mass producer, and the “originator” are not the same thing.

    I was RO'ing the stage when Chas Bales and Brandon St. Clair came up with the design. If you would like to discuss you can. A certain shop owner in Colorado says that he originated it, and while he had feedback on original designs, I was there when it was originated. I even remember the stage. It was a barricade stage and Brandon and Chas were talking about a bag with three to four legs shaped like a molar. Feel free to PM me for more details.

    I'm not able to compete in PRS type of matches but from my competitive pistol experiences, I would say that there is lots of good suggestions in episode 4.

    I agree strongly with dry fire practice being very important and that the actions during dry fire are done "right". I also agree with the phrase "slow is smooth ........ smooth is fast".

    People use to say I was "the fastest slow guy" because while I looked like I was going slow I would end up toward the top of the results. Part of that was being consistent through the match.

    Something else I liked to tell struggling shooters - is to take one target at a time. Don't think about any target you just got done firing on and don't think about any target yet to be engaged.

    Jose, Enjoyed the episode!

    One thing Ive observed and experienced. Dry-firing practice is heavily condoned and proven to be a be very useful excercise as a form of practice. Itís not difficult for a shooter to rack up 100ís if not 1000ís of dry firing cycles over a short time period which might normally be many years. On some designs this may be harmless to the action. With the Remington 700 and several of the clones, probably the most popular action, itís very rare to experience a broken firing pin or spring causing many to believe there are no issues caused by dry firing. The weak spot, that may rear itís ugly head at the worst possible time (during a match) is not the firing pin or spring, but the rather small retaining pin that connects the firing pin head to the firing pin. Dry firing seems to create a good deal of stress on this part. While the failure mode may cause a complete failure to fire, it can many times break within the firing pin head, appearing functional, but can initially cause occasional light hits due to friction of the broken pieces rubbing against the inside of cocking piece. With extensive dry firing, probably the best solution would be to use snap caps, or, at the very least keep a few spares of this part on hand and an eye on itís condition. I replace the pin annually during a thorough service of my action.
