I went to the range again this evening (Friday). I went to get some more practice on my shooting form, concentrating on the Low Ready position that I was taught. It was good timing. The Shiloh folks said that a Hoffners group was shooting tactical and invited me to stick my nose in and see what was going on. I didn't know anything about Hoffners, but I jumped at the chance to see more advanced tactical work. I strapped on my stock Sig retention holster and went to take a look. When I walked into the range area, an instructor was timing a student's draw and fire. He was trying to qualify to be on some elite team. He drew, fired, and hit the target in about .7 seconds. I was amazed. The stopped to introduce themselves to me and show be the rules of a Hot Range. Then they asked if I wanted a try a timing. I felt inadequate in the presence of long experience and superior speed, but I wanted to learn something. The took time to show me proper stance and their style of shooting. I practice a few times then took the timing test. I drew, fired, and hit the target in 1.3 seconds. They told me that was pretty good for a new shooter and that I could do even better if I used a different holster. I was so happy. I felt like I had accomplished something. They showed me a different style of the Low Ready stance where the weak hand is placed high on the chest before draw. I practiced coming from the Low Ready stance and firing two times before reaching my breaking point on the draw. We spent a while working on things like that. Then they invited me to fire their guns. I got to fire two 1911's. The first was a 10mm. The second was a .45. I don't recall the exact names because I was too excited. I do remember hearing the phrase X5 and Tactical to describe one of the guns. When I fired them, it was a completely different experience than my Sig P239. The recoil was greater, but the trigger was quick and smooth. I liked the quick trigger because I naturally have a light touch. To my surprise, I hammered two consecutive rounds through the same hole. It was a fantastic way to top off an evening of mixing it up with advanced shooters.
