What shooting fundamental do you guys think you need to improve on the most? Trigger control, stance, grip...etc.   I have to work on shooting on the move and transitioning from target to target more smoothly while moving.  Another area would be to become more proficient with the weak hand.

Remember that disputes on LIF are accessible to everyone on the Internet. The way in which you conduct yourself on LIF reflects on LIF and on you. Personal attacks will never help you make a point; they hurt the community and deter users from helping create a good community. We understand frustrations surrounding the 'NYSAFE' law which took effect 'behind closed doors'. Rest assured LIF will be addressing this in the very near future.

Breathing.  I have an awful tendency to [unknowingly] hold my breath when lining up my shot.  It makes my hands shake and messes me up pretty bad.

Grip. No question.
I don't know what in the Sam Hill happened, but I've lost my grip and can't seem to get back in the groove.

Lol...thanks. But I was referring to rifle.  While sighting in with irons on Monday, I realized how much I always relied on a scope for distance. Hell, I barely saw the bull at 50 yards.

Magazine changes with retention. Mag changes without retention, too, but not so much.
There is nothing wrong with owning a pistol that is not a model of 1911 in .45 ACP.
Owning two pistols, neither of which is a Model of 1911 in .45 ACP is just WRONG.
