Practice Targets

Post by ScottSimmonds on Fri Aug 19, 2011 9:02 pm

I am doing all of my practice shooting at 50 yards using a standard B6 target.

Last night we had a practice session shooting NRA short courses - 25 yards - boy were the targets big!

I was practicing tonight and came up with the idea of practicing at 50 yards using a 25 yard target - to make practicing even harder. Making the match targets look even bigger.

Anyone think this will hurt? Good idea? Dumb idea?

Practice what you will actually be shooting at makes sense to me.

YMMV

I think I remember a good coach saying, work on the 25 yard line until you have mastered your shot process, and are shooting 100's--tight groups, then work on the long line.
Besides-your match has more 25 yard targets.

They also said that you are training your finger to react to what your eye sees, without a separate thought to get the trigger to move to the rear. The separate thought is what causes anticipation/flinching.
If you change what your eye sees to be a false image, your finger may not respond correctly when your eye sees the correct image.
