Ok, so I'm horrible at remembering to take video at test & tune sessions... so "stock" pics will have to suffice. I had to verify some ammo with the chrono and ran some drills on the timer to test out the new gas pedal.
Minor pf ammo came out to 143pf (working on a 40 load for IDPA). Major verified again at 170pf (my standard load for USPSA Limited). The drill for testing the gas pedal was a simple one that went for speed and reacquiring a good sight picture. Five 8in disc targets, 8in apart, from 5yrds, 2 rounds per target, all started from low ready (so I didn't have to keep swapping rigs). I ran the drill 5 times in each configuration after a few warm up and accuracy drills. Best times as follows:
IDPA ESP pistol w/ minor ammo = 2.89sec.
IDPA ESP pistol w/ major ammo = 3.01sec
USPSA Limited pistol w/ major ammo & gas pedal = 2.69sec
Going to do some more testing soon, but the first 500rnds down the pipe and no noticeable wear on the gas pedal. Still tight and stable, as well as obviously showing some benefit to shooting major pf ammo at speed.
This testing also reminded me that I need to drop my IDPA frame off with @valhalla_customs#springfieldarmory#xdm#xdm525#2a#secondamendment#gunsofinstagram#guns#shooting#igmilitia#pewpewlife#pewpew#betatesting#gunsdaily#USPSA#idpa
Getting some good game time in on @shdgames SIERRA7 app for beta testing! I've noted a few things so far, but overall it's one hell of a game! I want to play it a good bit more to try and find any other possible bugs to address so this thing is as good as can be when it launches.
Small wins. Those little things that make you think "Today was good."
Make them count. Recognize them just like you recognize big wins or else you may not remember all the awesome stuff you accomplished in a day, week, or month.
What are your small wins for this week?
I received this thumb rest/gas pedal in the mail today from @estebancustommachine to test and evaluate on my XDM Limited gun. I'm very happy to be selected to help out evaluating a new product and can't wait to see how it performs at the range and in matches.
While it's labeled for the XD Mod2, it went right into the XDM frame without any modification to neither the part nor the frame. It was a little snug to get in, but it's solid as a rock. The grip surface on it provides really good traction for my support thumb. So far, I'm impressed not only with the quality of the part, but the fit as well. There is a little getting used to on the pivot point for the takedown function, but that's not a big deal by any means.
Since my Limited gun's slide is still out for machining, I swapped over the slide from my IDPA ESP pistol to do some initial presentations. The thumb rest is intuitive and compliments how I already grip the pistol. I'll be doing some dry fire with it tonight, then a range session tomorrow. In addition to providing feedback to the maker, I'll post updates on IG & FB for anyone that's interested.
If anyone wants to check them out, go to or on IG @estebancustommachine#uspsa#thisisuspsa#uspsalimited#springfieldarmory#xdm#xdm525#2a#secondamendment#gunsofinstagram#pewpew#shooting#guns#igmilitia#pewpewlife#betatesting
How did we come up with the name Tappily?
We wanted the app to be a happy and positive experience.
So we started looking for happy words, and asked ourselves the question "What is an action users will take in our app?". The most generic answer to that question is tapping.
And that's when we came up with Tap Happily. Combine those words and you get Tappily😊
We are so happy with this name because in an age where technology can cause negativity, we want to be the app that brings you positivity.
Tap Happily, friend.
#Repost@jakekirschfitness - For the final week of the 55-80% block we did a million sets of singles at 345lbs (for me) until we dipped below 95% of our highest velocity/power output. This set was my highest velocity & power output for the day peaking at 2,057 watts if you wanted to do some math. Great being able to utilize eliteform_llc to train with real-time data like this!

Our goal is to start talking about what really matters. We want to build a community that shares opinions on mental health, creates more awareness, and spreads research and knowledge.
We've been asking other mental health advocates what their opinion is regarding the mental health stigma and whether or not it's improving over time. •
There is an overall consensus that the mental health stigma gets better as more people talk about it.
Do you find it helpful when others share their mental health journey?

Telling others your goals helps for a few reasons:
It keeps you accountable.
It makes the goals seem more real to you and not something that makes you think "I'll do that one day."
It gets you out of your comfort zone.
We've shared our goals for Tappily on our YouTube channel (link in bio). It was scary, and our goals are big, but it felt good to put them out there.
Have you told anyone about your goals for 2019?
