But to get the thread back on topic, without out trigger time and practice, it doesn't matter what stock or trigger you put on it. I am going to have to try the coin trick. Makes for a fun competition for yourself. Shooting is just like any other sport, if you don't practice, you lose what you have learned after a while and develop bad habits. I have people out on the range that are qualifying and shoot great when they frist come in but after a year or so, you see their scores get lower and lower because they are not practicing. Those good habits that they had at first get lost and bad habits take their place.
With an emphasis on "proper practice".
If one is just a bundle of bad habits and continues to practice them, all you get is a shooter with deeply ingraned and well practiced bad habits.
As for the hogue, with that full length aluminum frame and bedding block you're right and they are just about fool proof. All that rubber also tends to naturally deaden much of the vibration as well.
