More Trigger Time
In a fortunate turn of events, I had some free time after work Wednesday afternoon so I ran over to the range for a quick bit of trigger pulling. Since I'm shooting a large match this weekend, I figured a few extra rounds down range wouldn't hurt.
It was a simple and short session; 150 rounds mostly shot from 15 yards. At that moderate distance, I often find myself aiming for the center of the blurry brown object, instead of the upper half of the IDPA target. Concentrating on the where on the target results in better hits. I've noticed also that putting a black paster in the center of the -0 zone is a good training aid, but that helper isn't present in a match.
I'm as ready as I can be for the weekend. Shooting by myself on the range is a poor approximation of a match under pressure, but at least I go in feeling good. And it will be fun no matter what!
