Clean a target? Get over it...

Post by marlin1881 on 2/12/2015, 5:44 pm

First topic message reminder :

When does a person finally get over the "excitement" of cleaning a target?   Rolling Eyes   All that adrenalin sure can mess up the next target...

I'm in Expert class and my expectation is that I SHOULD be cleaning targets every now and then, especially in Timed and some Rapid.  I used to collect every one of my 100 scores and take them home to hang on the fridge door.   Shocked   (I'm kidding.  Maybe...)

I still haven't cleaned a Slow target, but I'm sneakin' up on it.  A few 99s hanging on my gun room wall.    Cool

Got to you did it.
My biggest problem, but have gotten a lot better with it is to put that dang gun down and start all over when it does not feel right.

Back to the topic.
I quit saving the clean targets cause I know I can do it again.
I have only saved three targets.
One is a 100-9x TF with the .22
One is a 99-1x SF with the .45
Last one was from my last match at the Phoenix Rod and Gun Club before I moved out here to Wisconsin.
The whole line fired on my timed fire target of the NMC.
Funny stuff right there Smile

Good target Jon Smile

Still looking for that clean long line and the 100-10x short line.
Someday...

I've just gone back through this thread and read the responses.  A year ago I got very excited about a 100 timed or slow fire target, in practice, not even in a match.  Too much so, as the next target is usually a 93 or 94. 

You guys are right.  Until one's mindset gets to the point that a 100 is the expected and usual result of doing everything right 10 times in a row and is, therefore, the normal outcome, doing so is a distraction. 

"Get over it" is the best advice I've seen towards shooting many 100's.  I finally understand what that means now, and I have shot a few in practice over the last two months as a result. 

Thanks.

Joe
