As you shoot Bullseye with a red dot sight, are you giving your attention to the dot, or to the target?

While using red dot sights, do you concentrate on the dot, or do you concentrate on the target?

First topic message reminder :

Since my very first handgun, I have been taught to focus specifically on the front sight, to the exclusion of everything else.
When I got my first red dot sight, I assumed the same reasoning applied, so my concentration was on the dot.

However, another option while using red dot sights is to concentrate on the target.
(For most people, technically, both red dot and target should be in sharp focus.)
For anyone shooting red dot sights, WHILE YOU ARE SHOOTING, which are you paying attention to, and why?

NOTE:

  • Either you see a red dot, with a target that moves around (meaning you are mostly "paying attention to" the dot, 
  • or you see a fixed target with a red dot that moves around (meaning that you are mostly paying attention to the target.



I don't think it is possible to concentrate on both at the same time, even though you see both.

I read probably here,    Look at the X.   Its like throwing a ball, look where you want the bullet to go.  

This works for me.

I was told long ago, turn the dot so you can see through it.  Look at the X.
