At this point, I came to the level of my performance where I can buy a few points by investing some money in technology in order to benefit my score performance. Finally, after one year of involvement in PPC, (Police Pistol Competition) I decided to acquire a more advanced model of equipment, such as a new competition pistol.

Many athletes should use self reward as an effective tool toward achieving your highest goals. In controversy, we have a slightly different picture when someone is interested in sports and activities; he is buying the most advanced and expensive equipment instead of taking time and patience to learn the game by investing in education through classes in this subject. As time comes by, athletes are looking for ideas to enhance their performance. Sometimes, extra money is not available to them and the most advanced tool is not making any difference in their low score performance. A lesson should be learned.

I hope that you heard the phrase:”Learn from the best.” I heard it as well a long time ago and decided to use every time when it possible, or make those possibilities as a stepping stones in my own learning experience and create those possibilities any time when it seems impossible.

Very often people are looking for immediate satisfaction in their development. They are expecting have only fun in their journey to happiness. In most cases this is empty expectations. I learned by myself and heard from others that sometimes you have to struggle to get what you want the most, as Tony Robbins said: “The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you.”

I decided one day to teach the class on the subject “Competitive Pistol target shooting.” What can I do differently from others? Why my class can be different from others? What I know is different from the others? In order to make my class successful and help to make improvement in my students’ development I must learn all steps to the top and become the best in the subject that I would like to teach. A certain famous German philosopher said a long time ago: ”He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.” Eventually I achieved my goal of becoming knowledgeable and experienced in most subject areas within competitive pistol target shooting. This is separating my class from many other instructors or classes on the same subject. I am glad to provide a good deal of knowledge and personal experience to all competitors who understand and respect the fact that the right set of knowledge is as valuable as your piece of equipment (custom made target pistol) if your interests lay in more than just collecting stuff.

What you will learn in my class that is different from others is not only that my class is based on my deep experience on the subject but also your personal involvement during the complete progression of the class. “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” By Benjamin Franklin

What you will learn will become your second nature. You will recognize all elements of the process to make your performance more stable and consistent all the way to the desired performance. In most classes you will sit during most time of the class, there will be no room and time for your personal questions or analyses of your current performance; this is why all those previous classes did not work for you or make any tremendous impact on your personal development.

Let‘s talk about Competitive Olympic style target shooting.  Earlier I mentioned it as an equipment heavy activity. You need to invest around $4,000 to $7,000 in a few Olympic Competitive grade pistols, such as a CA Air pistol, a FREE Pistol, and a Standard Pistol around $2,000 each. No special classes are required. In common knowledge, you can compete as much as possible as long as it is FUN. This is the most common problem in the road of achievement the highest performance in Olympic style target shooting. A lack of structural and initial knowledge of the technical performance, too much attention on the technical part of the equipment, a very low level of problematic areas of the performance, too much motivational BS, and encouragement to buy “stuff” instead learning the structure of performance for people who just start looking in this direction in competitive performance.

First of all, from my point of view, a very low performance level in AP is 540-550 and below 540 in FP which is far from the description of “FUN”. As much as I remember myself during this short period of time to be at this level, it was most frustrating and unpleasant experience in my entire competitive career, simply because there were multiple issues interrupting the process. It takes time and a knowledgeable solution with an experienced mentor or coach who can work with you and help you to create a successful plan to overcome this level ASAP.  After you will be able to control your performance at the level above AP 565 & FP540, you will start to appreciate the game, your time, and the importance of the initial investment in your own equipment and education.  Otherwise, your money spent in Olympic style target shooting equipment serves as a simple conversational piece or collectable value.

In the light description of “FUN” in target shooting, I recommend you to try PPC Clubs (Police Pistol Combat Competitions) and events across the USA. This is what can be described as real “FUN” in the Target shooting.

The Meaning of DNF in PPC.

288 with DNF in PPC Match. Ruslan Dyatlov’s target Fenton PPC Match. December 8, 2013.

Today I learned what the meaning of DNF in PCC competitions. (Do Not Fired Shot)

Presumably, I have the potential to score 600 someday. 😉

Today I used Standard Remington 9mm ammo and my SIG P-226.

At this point, I have to accomplish three things:

  1. Visit my optometrist in order to obtain proper shooting glasses.
  2. Eliminate double action trigger by switching to a S&W 38 cal. revolver or Custom grade semi auto pistol.
  3. Obtain a CR Speed holster in order to gain some extra time for my performance.
