Thanks for understanding where I was comin from. You nailed it on the head, dude.PainKillaX wrote:Haha. I still love it. I'm not in a state of denial, yet. Maybe some day, and that worries me, but not yet. And the light strike are caused by the slide not fully returning forward, well documented on XDTalk as being either limp-wristing or dirty striker channels. Hasn't happened to me in my many hundreds of rounds, only my sister. Having trained as many people as you have, you know how you can start seeing the mistakes and predicting the failures before they happen? I finally experienced that. Again, the 7 round magazines are taken out of the carry rotation. I can admit when something isn't working and they are not but I'm not ready to give up on my pocket cannon yet.
If I ever lock it in a safe somewhere, you're more than welcome to say I told you so
Yeap, you can see their entire body frame and musculature shift between states of being tense and even more tense. You can also see their upper torso positioning become indicative to what their subconscious brain is calling out/how it is performing. And other stuff. A lot of it is just knowing from experience, like you said. I don't look at one thing, I try to see everything. Seeing is everything.
Also, I don't care to hear "you're right" from friends, anymore. I used to, when I had a big ego. Now, I'm too old, inside, and things have progressed to the final point of me caring about the right things in life.
I knew this, when I realized I could just walk away from shooting, as I've said on the forum. That if they banned firearms, or some part that would disallow me from shooting competitively or training, I would just work on another skillset. In the past, I would never have been able to say that.
I know that the way I am is influenced by my friends, who are all much older than I am. And I am ok with it, because I know this is the right way to live, and is the right mindset(s) to have. :thumb:
sorry if I droned on for too long.
