And you will never get fast if you are not smooth in grip, draw and presentation. I don’t give a rhats azz who you are. You, me or God.If only 100-200 times was all it took to gain REAL speed. Number of repetitions for muscle memory gained? Opinions across the board are 3-5,000 reps done exactly the same way if it's a new skill. Thing is, doing it the same way at the same deliberate slow pace may perfect that draw stroke, but then one has to contend with developing the fast twitch muscles to accomplish speed.
Plenty of students will confirm, the first time they were introduced to the scoop draw, none of them needed 1-200 draw strokes to learn the uncovering of the garment and drawing with speed. Maybe it may have taken someone a dozen times, maybe, but we had people shooting 1 second from draw with the scoop draw in a matter of a few mags, if that.
One mans fast is another mans slow. But there's no question that slow is slow whether it's smooth or not. And fast is fast whether it's smooth or not. .90-1.1 seconds from concealed is fast for me, 1.25-1.75 seconds from concealed is slow for me. There's few people who will get to a 1 second draw stroke from concealed practicing deliberate 4 count draw strokes.
Still like this one-- speed is fine but accuracy is final. Sounds like he didn't believe one could have both, and we know plenty of people here who have both.
