Took a skill builder yesterday. Like normal, had fun and learned something.
1 thing was what the hood protection is for on my Safariland holster. So if someone is facing you and tries to grab the pistol in the holster, which would prevent you from drawing it. The hood protection tab stops their hand from making contact with the hood. So you can disengage the hood still. When I go to the range, I get asked by a few people if I'm going to remove this. Now I am not. Cause if Young v. Hawaii takes effect, I will be using this holster, but attached at the hip instead of a drop leg.
What was noticeable again is the mental fatigue toward the end of the SB. During the SB, I do well, but usually the last exercise is when I start to slip accuracy wise. IDK how I have to train to prevent this. I think it's mainly because I'm an indoor dog. I mean I could go stand in the sun thru out the week, but is that really feasible? Even after the SB, due to being in the sun, around 6pm is when I start to get headache and feeling drained. I do drink Gatorade and it helps prevent it from getting worst.During the 4 hr SB, I drank about 3/4 gallon of water and 1 bottle Gator. I did forget to apply sunscreen too and I'm very pale. The damn sunscreen is on my bathroom counter top. I took it out and left it there so I don't forget to apply it. No focus. I might relocated to inside my range bag.
Had a few first timers and from the start to the end, they have shown a big improvement for manipulations. Accuracy takes longer than 1 SB to improve greatly on though. But stuff like reloads, drawing, stance, etc...
