It's going to be an extension of the week for me, so not too bad.

Likewise! Not sure what we might do next, as I mentioned I think I will put another survey out there and see what folks prefer.

In the meantime, I am planning to attend Phil's Tactical Shotgun class in October:

If you have never trained tactical shotgun, you will be amazed what you will learn!

:iagree:

Top takeaway for me: I'm squeezing my whole gun hand and not just my trigger finger. This causes my gun to dip low and left. When just target shooting this doesn't happen as much because I'm slow and deliberate for maximum accuracy. Drawing on command and shooting the correct number and series of targets, as instructed, takes away that crutch. This is an excellent discovery. While it wasn't bad enough to cause misses at self-defense distances, it needs to be corrected.

I have the same issue, and I'm not using my weak hand appropriately. I need to make sure to keep my weak hand tilted forward, thumbs both straight, and my left palm firm on the gun.

Having their attention keeping me honest was extremely valuable.
