    Results from Today's Trip:

    Yet more progress! My shot placement was a little more erratic this time, but I managed to get at least one bulls-eye for every group of ten shots (every target.) Here are two of my best targets of the day. (Smith M&P 9, 7 yards.) I especially like the one where I darn near tore the bulls-eye out! I think I'm getting better at "feeling" when I do something wrong. For example, I could tell as soon as the shot went off that the lowest shot in the first target was going to be bad.






    By the time I was finishing up, I had the range to myself, so I stole a sillouette target from the next lane, taped up the holes, and tried an experiment. I ran the target out to 10 yards and loaded my last 5 shots into my mag. Then I closed my eyes for 30 seconds and tried to put myself in the mindset that I had just awoke to the infamous "bump" in the night and was about to catch sight of the BG.

    I planned it out that I would fired 4 quick shots center mass and then try for 1 head shot at the end. This was very instructive. Since I was focused on shooting the BG quickly, I realized that I hardly looked at the sights, but rather focused on the target. I got 1 hit center chest, 1 hit in his left clavicle, 1 in the left shoulder, 1 miss, and then managed to put the head shot through his left eye. Not what I was expecting, but at least he'd be dead or at least severly injured.

    Very good! Next time you get to the range, try this: press the trigger (with X + .01 pounds of pressure), but when the gun fires, keep holding the trigger all the way back. Then slowly release the trigger until you hear/feel a soft "click." See if that has any effect on the results.

    Milque, I actually have been keeping the trigger back and only releasing it as far as the click. I forgot to do it today during the first few targets but then I got back on track. It seems to help a little, but not much. I think today I just lost a little patience and was squeezing too fast.

    Just keep shooting and if you get a chance shoot with a old timer or ex-LEO or take a corse at the range. You can pick up a lot if you do. Good luck.

    Yeah, I know I should have brought it home, but for some reason I tossed that one before I left.
