although ALOT of us (me included) add alittle trash challenges sometimes on the Wire, just remember that when it gets down to business, you have 2 deadly firearms and SAFETY must be paramount. If you have to eat crow in front of GG, him being a GF would help him understand your circumstances and allow you to gracefully back out of this challenge.

 

Now, for some encouraging words: you could always hope that he smashes his left hand in a truck door and then HE would be the one who has to back out..... :lol::lol::lol:

 

If this helps you any, remember that you are allowed to use your 'other' hand to assist in cocking and holstering your pistols. BUT, when you pull the trigger, you can only use one hand.

This would require you to actually shoot duelist style but it could be in the GF category. Just shoot your 1st five shots from one pistol and holster then shoot your remaining five from the other pistol, using your good hand to assist in the cocking and holstering of your 2nd pistol.

 

The other advice I have is to stay awake the next 3 days and dry fire about 100,000 times with both hands. :o

I think the best use of your three days is to invent a time machine and take back the challenge you made. I've been shooting GF for about a year and a half, and still ain't got it figured out!

Widder gives good advice. There are too many bad things that can happen to think we can teach you to be a safe gunfighter in just three days, unless we could be hands on for those three days. And even then, ? My best advice is to start working now for next year.

simple sequences I get all jammed up

Howdy Mingo, here's a simple tip that has helped a few local begining GF that were having trouble keeping up with the target sequence. When folks tell me there's no way they can shoot GF cause they would get confused, I ask a simple question....can you count to five?? :huh: The answer is always yes :o if you can count to five you can shoot GF ;)

 

Instead of thinking of the pistol string as a 10 shot string remember it's still two 5 shot strings. When you shoot traditional you shoot (and think) first gun 1,2,3,4,5 next gun 1,2,3,4,5.

Do the same thing when shooting GF. If the sequence is two 1-3-1 sweeps, then shoot, think, and count two 1-3-1 sweeps, 1-2,3,4-5....1-2,3,4-5. This way double tap opportunities will come naturally and you will always end up with two empty guns. Don't worry about trying to avoid crossovers to start, just alternate each gun and let the chips fall. If it starts to get confusing shoot the stage double-duelist, Good Luck :)

Try shooting double duelist at alot of your shoots this year, That way you can build up strenght in your left hand. Shooting gun fighter now could get you a little trouble holding and cocking. If you shoot DD you can use your right hand to help out. Don't want anything to happen to you, won't have anyone to trash talk with.

 

Stay away from the POTATOUS. There bad for you. :wacko::lol:

Pard,

 

My advice is to back out or you could do something that could lead to another operation. Just tell folks you were crazy to consider it. ;)

OK, here's what you do...

 

The day of the shoot stop and pick up some donuts, big fat greasy ones filled with all manner of sweet jelly and whatnot. Maybe some covered with that thick powdered sugar stuff too.

 

DO NOT EAT ANY DONUTS YOUR OWN SELF.

 

When you get to the range give them to GG and insist that he eat them. If there are any facilities at the range to wash hands, make sure GG can't get to them or use them.

 

Second, tell GG some story about some feller you know who didn't drink enough water on a hot day and convince him to drink lots of water, and I mean LOTS.

 

At some point during the match (hopefully early on) GG will need to use the outhouse, when he does, lock him inside.

 

OR you could just go ahead and buy him a six pack and give it to him before the match to pay off the wager...then tell the match director that ol GG has booze on the range in his cart...

It takes a big man to admit he let his a$$$ overload his mouth. Step up to the plate. Don't do anything unsafe.

Mingo - Pard - Ol' Buddy -

 

Dry fire, dry fire, dry fire. Figgure out if you can alternate cocking and shooting, or if you need to double cock and then shoot. New GF shooters usually find that cocking both guns, then shooting one at a time is easiest. With split pistol, shoot DD. Think in terms of 5 shot strings (as mentioned many times here). It can be a lot like shooting rifle strings.

 

Oh, and dry fire. Good sight picture every shot, non shooting trigger finger off the trigger. Slow and easy can be faster than you think.

 

CR - (did I say dry fire?)

I have been strengthening my weak hand (and working on my strong hand as well) by using a foam stress ball. One of the things that I do is I take a medium sized stress ball in between my thumb and forefinger and repeatedly squeeze the ball with my thumb. Been doing this for a month now and am really surprised how much it has improved my thumb strength and dexterity.

If this helps you any, remember that you are allowed to use your 'other' hand to assist in cocking and holstering your pistols.

Must have some strange rules in Tennessee. You CANNOT cock a gun with the off hand. Not even in duelist categories.

 

I'd lay off the Lynchburg Punch fer awhile, Widder.
