Just coming from the range with three of us Amigos and will come back to update this post after we finish lunch. :unsure:

ETA: Ok, although I'd intended to return here after lunch and the trip home, there were several other items on the family schedule that had to be taken care of first. So here it is a day later before I remembered to return to this thread and respond to brownie's questions. Sorry about that, but here goes:

1. What's your routine if you're shooting pistol/s that day? Stand on the line, shoot at 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 50,100 yrds?
The target stands on the Pistol Range at the Palm Beach County Shooting Sports Complex are 5, 10, and 15 meters; there's no other variability on this range. This range period was spent in slow-fire concentrating on the fundamentals and then in repetitive two-hand and then one-hand presentation as I continue getting used to shooting with an optic on my new P365X-MACRO, currently a SIG Romeo ZERO. This thread reminded me of my goal to add more discipline to my pistol range trips, something like what edgehill's post #23 in your Threading the Needle with a Pistol thread.

2. What skills are you using? Full sight picture, flash sight picture, front sight press, QK pistol and at what distances are you using any of the above?
Not sure exactly what to call it since I was using the dot, but after a couple of mags in slow-fire concentrating on fundamentals, all from low-ready (since holster draws are not allowed), quickly putting the dot on the target and immediate trigger squeeze, first two-handed, then strong-side single-handed (didn't go to weak-hand today). However, I also shot two mags of .22LR from my Smith & Wesson M22A-1 with iron sights using full sight picture, which reminded me how difficult it is for my eyes to see the front sight!

3. How many rounds do you normally shoot in one session?
I didn't take specific notes, but I believe it was 8 mags of 17 rounds each of 9mm (136 rounds), plus 20 rounds of .22LR.

4. Do you practice shooting two handed off hand? One handed off hand?
Yes, but as noted above, one-handed was all strong side this session.

5. Do you shoot 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 rds a second and what distances are you using that number per second?
Range doesn't like a lot of rapid fire, but the RSOs don't squawk much unless it's excessive. Since I was concentrating more on the fundamentals this session, most of my shots were once every 1-2 seconds, but threw in a few double-taps, too and again, all at 5 meters.

6. Do you practice your basics at distances past 25 yrds?
Although there is a 25/50 meter handgun range at the outdoor PBSS/FWC facility, the Amigos haven't spent much, if any time on that range. I plan to investigate how best to utilize that range for shooting pistols at longer ranges on a future pistol range outing.

Finally remembered to return to my post #2 and get directly to brownie's questions, which I've now done (see above). 🤠
