Hi, "dipping" is a classic flinch, anticipating recoil. Try a lot of dry fire practice, regards, Mike

And try to only let the trigger finger move forward enough for the trigger to reset for each shot.  That is important in any case but I'd think more so shooting one handed.

Following is what has worked well for me. 

I find a firm grip is REQUIRED for quickly shooting a 1911 one handed.   Grip it about like you would the neck of a rattlesnake that you don't like.   ;D
Not so hard your hand shakes, but close.   That keeps the recoil directed back into your arm and shoulder instead of flipping the wrist and bending the elbow, both of which take the sights off target.   Concentrate on keeping the gun level during recoil, even if it rises a little.  It's easier to drop the whole gun than to tip sights back down precisely.

Make sure your finger's first PAD is on the trigger, not the joint towards the end of your trigger finger.  The joint will push the muzzle to the left (right hander) as you break the trigger.

Shots very low and left fired by right handed shooter - are often a flinch indicator.  To conquer that, you will have to learn to NOT ANTICIPATE the gun going off.  A crisp and short trigger travel helps with this, even if you can't set the pull weight much lighter than about 3.5 pounds for safe operation.

Good luck, GJ

So I have been wanting to shoot traditional and traded into a Remington R1. 

Tried shooting one handed last match with regular Taurus 1911.  The results were well not up to snuff.
Think kept dipping the pistol wrist was weak.

Anyway, any tips what might help other than practice practice.

There is also stage design information in the WB Match Director guide.

Some great stages (I hear) were put on at Winter Range 2020.  You can find them all online at:
http://www.winterrange.com/WB%20Stages.pdf

In fact, in same general area, you can find stages back to at least 2015, maybe earlier (I got tired of flipping through the PDFs there).

Good luck, GJ

Howdy,

Are there any Wild Bunch stage designs available online?

Thanks in advance,

If Dusty Boddams is involved in a WB match scenario design, there will be a high round count with plenty of action for the 1911.  Count on it!  If you visited the webpage for the Gunrunner range in Bowie, you were likely impressed with the facility too.  www.gr-ss.com
