If you can see the perforations on the 25 yard target while you are shooting it you may want to think about shifting your focus a little closer.

That sounds like a dumb rule. I can see the perfs on a 25yd target on a sunny day at my club so..

Won't make any difference, with the deviation in OAL and bullet weight chances are his ammo will be less than accurate at 25 anyways. Add in high primers and light strikes, his match is a disaster good sight or not.

Not during shooting. The only time I can see bullet holes while I'm shooting is when I just shot a target within 7yds.

Or when I was much newer and used bullet holes to check whether I hit or not.

I am unafraid to miss.

If that's wrong, I don't want to be right.

This quote came to mind, and after watching the clip, is oddly appropriate.

I did not know that was an actual rule. I had to look it up.


Adding this to the list of "stupid shit to fix for Mr. Foley".

There's an old guy that got me into competition shooting - they were running a pin shoot at my local range when I was planning to put holes in paper. He told me to stick around, enjoy getting my ass kicked, and comped my entry fee. My first time up he stood behind me, and after I missed my first two shots, yelled "DON'T USE THE FORCE! USE YOUR FUCKING SIGHTS".

Every time now when I'm in the zone, banging through a string of steel one-for-one with the dot or front sight bouncing from one to the next like the bouncing ball on a Disney singalong on crack, I feel like a fucking Jedi.

Pin shooting is good for trigger control, and more fun than dot drills.

Who shoots pins?


Unless otherwise noted, expect that all my posting here is in true Doodie fashion.  If my post somehow upsets your sensibilities, well...there ya go.

I thought pins were extinct.


Are you now, or have you ever been a member of the Doodie Project?

What size are your dots and how far away are you putting them?

The pins in my desk drawer are about 1/4" and the pins in my wife's sewing drawer are even smaller.

Pin shooting doesn't sound like much fun, if you ask me, but trigger control would be essential if you wanna hit them, so you got me there!

Maybe you should make your dots a little bigger? Try drawing/printing them out with a 2" diameter and I'll bet you prefer shooting them instead!
