    Just a silly post on my part, but hey, Im a chatty guy. :D


    Anyhow, we all know that the P3AT with defensive rounds or even range FMJ can kick like a beast, so I thought I'd post a little trick I used to make my accuracy/form better while shooting.

    Have a buddy, or the guy next to you on the range, sneak a snap cap into your mag at random places. So somewhere in that mag is snap cap, and you won't know if it's #1, 3, 6, etc. (this works better when firing hotter ammo, but you get the drift). You'll be amazed the flaws you will pick up in your technique, especially flinching, slapping, dropping wrist, etc.

    If you haven't already, try it and lemmie know if it helped.

    I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.... :eek:

    That may be fun to try and see what I do.

    Yes.  I did it to my partner, with her P22.
    Not with Snap Caps.
    I just loaded one less than what she thought.
    You'd be serprised what it will show.
    Then you got something to work on.

    Yep, a good idea and one you can do yourself (though perhaps a little less effectively). First mix your snap caps with your practice rounds - two mags worth - and load your 2 mags without looking. Then shuffle your two mags, lock and load with one and fire away.

    Take care ...

    I like that LOCK & LOAD.
    Sounds like you been in the Military.
    Charlie. "Lock and load"

    Hi Charlie,

    Yep, former Marine and Viet Nam Vet. (1962-66). If I remember correctly, at Paris Island training with M14s, the range instructions went something like ... "With 20 rounds lock and load. All ready on the left. All ready on the right. Shooters watch your targets. Targets!". But that was almost 46 years ago (though at times it feels as if it were just yesterday).

    Take care ...
