Bullseye Tip of the Day

Post by DavidR on 3/15/2012, 3:51 pm

Post a good, informative Tip if you have one.

From the AMU training guide:
Trigger control is of very great importance in producing an accurate
shot. When the
shooter exerts pressure on the trigger, he must do so in a manner that
does not alter the sight
alignment, or position of the pistol. Consequently, the shooter must be
able to exert smooth, even pressure to the trigger. Furthermore, the
trigger must be pressed in conjunction with maximum concentration, peak
visual perception of sight alignment and minimum arc of movement.

But if this were easy, we would all shoot 2700's every time.

Quite a few years ago, I was a couple of positions down from Doc Young(two time National champ) and there was a new guy shooting next to him.

During a break in the match he asked Doc if he had any pointers to improve his score? Doc was walking next to him, kind of day dreaming and not saying a lot. Doc said, "The rings in the middle are worth more."

It is still true.

I once heard a shooter ask Brian Zins what was the single most important aspect of an accurate shot. Without saying a word, he just smiled, held out his hand and worked his trigger finger back and forth.

There is never enough discussion on how to achieve "sight alignment, or position of the pistol".

Next to trigger control this is the biggest cause of bad shots. I can't remember the last time a forced shot was a good shot.

You may get a 10 or even an X but it still doesn't mean that forced shot was a "good" shot.

Make sure the gun is unloaded....

Then check it again to be sure it is unloaded....

Then dry fire a few shots every day. Totally concentrate on the front sight and let the hammer fall with the least gun movement possible.

Time, patience, and perseverance.

Visualize. Then try to only see in the sights what you visualize.

Learn to call the sights, Not where you were on the target but where the sights were as the sear released the hammer. Was the front sight perfectly centered, perfectly level?

Start your squeeze early, before perfect sight alignment. Use trigger pressure to drive the front sight, toward perfect alignment, within your aiming area, until the hammer falls.

I have only been at this game since 1969. For the life of me, I will never realize or understand "using trigger pressure to drive the front sight".

I see sight alignment and stability as one. And I see that just like holding a brimming no head beer mug out at arms length, steady and not spilling. There is no trigger on a beer mug. Don't spill the beer as you place it on the shelf.

Maybe I'm just from the old school, but to me steering or driving the front sight with the trigger implies that there is an angular motion imparted to the gun. I always thought that sight alignment between the front and rear sight, and accepting the hold within one's ability, was important. Applying pressure to the trigger so as to not upset this alignment was always considered by me, to be the purpose of trigger control. Of course I still think that follow through is an important fundamental. I have attended multiple Small Arms Firing Schools at Camp Perry and I have attended a couple of AMU seminars.

"Pull the front sight through the rear notch with your trigger squeeze(press?)."

Practice the 2 second drill (USAMU tip): Use range commands, expose the target for 2 seconds for first shot only x 10 (or until you shoot a 9 or lower).

I just started shooting Bullseye so this isn't a tip. I've noticed that during slow fire there is about a 2 second span when the wobble gets smaller. That's when I squeeze the trigger. Yiogo

My OUTLINE...I view it between each shot or stage of a match.

Post by dullom on 1/18/2014, 8:38 pm

I'm not the guru to answer a lot.  But, I've been shooting for 40 yrs in Bullseye & Police Combat.  Bullseye is the challenge that makes me tough when shooting any other type matches.  I've been a member of a Army Reserve Shooting Team in the 80's....I've read a lot, I've shot a lot, I've scored a lot, and I've missed X's or 10's a lot.  Here is a outline I will share with the young and new shooters.  There is a paragraph of explanation to each line but, you'll understand the meaning.  I have this on a laminated card in the gun box.  It is read without fail...always.  Allow me the honor of sharing what is known by many but I had not seen it in this Post for anyone wishing to have a little mentoring.  Remember, 1 shot at a time and the groups will refine themselves, and the scores will get better.

Before practising for or entering a competition, see that your trigger-pull complies with the regulations, as nothing is more annoying than, after making a winning score, to find your trigger-pull is too light and your score in consequence is disqualified.
