I practice what I’m good at.

Back in the day, at the basic school, we had to shoot a course of varying distances starting at 50 yds and moving closer with each couple of shots.
We were using the pistol of the time, a 1911 .45 acp. Many missed at the longer range and it was upsetting because they were selected for infantry and
did not like an airdale selectee out shooting them.

Then again, unless one tries new things, one never discovers the lengths to which they suck, or that which they are good at.
Practice, to me, involves the repetitive stuff that I’m good at but must do over and over and over to maintain an acceptable level of proficiency.
Maybe that makes it more clear as to my meaning in the previous two posts.
Also, I believe Edmundo Mirales, FBI Special Agent, Retired, would disagree with Gene about the necessity to learn one's limits using one hand. One needs to study the Miami Shootout and they will discover that wounds to one arm of the other actually happen. Mirales ended the fight with one arm and 6 shots. And one of the bad guys managed to kill people with his left arm when his right arm was damaged.
Of course, until one is involved in a shootout, it's all theoretical. What I learned at the qualification, was that #1, I'm still very fast and accurate, even with one hand (due to practice), and that firing weak hand, I accidentally dropped the magazine during a firing sequence cos my trigger finger knuckle hit the button. My mag change was swift and I was back in action - because of practice.
I wasn't criticizing you. If anything, I've found very little, if anything at all to disagree with involving any of your posts over the years. You are a professional.

The biggest difference is that I am required to qualify with the Glock 19, and I don't like them and don't own one. Currently off duty carry is the similar but better for me CZ P-10C.
