This time I had packed some of the colors & shapes targets for something a little different. I also figured it wouldn't hurt to force myself into some slower, more precision shooting with the Compact SIG.
Running through a hundred rounds, shooting the various spots on the paper was an interesting experiment in patience and concentration. I varied my speed at times, noting how precise of a sight picture I needed to keep the hits in the color. Even at 7 yards it was easy to drift out. I found it very interesting that my tightest groups were on the small yellow circle; an aiming point that I found it extremely difficult to distinguish — the required extra concentration surely making a difference.
Eventually I felt the need to speed things up a bit, so the practice was concluded with a quick 50 round Julie Golob drill.
It was fun, then I had to go back to work...
Sounds like it was a fun day. I hit the range this evening myself with members of Long Island Gun Club (a gun forum). Was a nice time, met a bunch of folks, shot a bit, then went out to eat with some of them afterward. Good time all around.ReplyDelete
