In your book, Combat Handgunnery, you talk about joining gun clubs or seeking formal instruction. Alternatively, you mention shooting with a friend or colleague for one to one competition.
I practice drawing my weapon from holsters, as well as dry firing drills. I practice shooting stronghand, weak hand, two hand and from the hip. My particular range does not facilitate shooting on the move or shooting at moving targets. Aside from just competing, are there tips/drills that you recommend for preparing one's self for shooting for self defense?
Lastly, I was reading a review by Mr Quinn from Gunblast.com and he reviewed and recommended a recoil reduction system for Glocks. He said it reduced recoil helping for easier followup shots. The link for the system that he refers is below. Is there truly an advantage of a system like this? I would personally want to switch from the plastic guide rod to a metal type. What specific rod would you recommend for a Glock 23 and Glock 27?
