Hi All,
Something I don't do which I probably should start is viewing my shots.  I  don't have a box or a scope at the moment.  Which one of you just bought a mint 3 gun box?  Anyways I was thinking maybe a monocular might be an option.  Does anyone use one of these?  I only shoot inside at 50'.
Also I checked recently with Walthers about the CSP.  They said it still hasn't been released yet and they have no idea when it will be.

I used a small monocular when I used to shoot an indoor league. It worked pretty well for that purpose. If you really wanted to, you can probably rig up a stand or tripod but using it by hand is the way I did it.

Scope every shot - unless you're shooting doubles or triples; thanks, Chris - in which case, scope when you put the gun down.

Get one. Get both.

Feedback is a gift.

Thank me later.

doubles-triples are a bit on a special case thing. I probably should make a thread explaining.

At 50 ft indoor, most scopes I have used/borrowed work well.

A scope is more useful than a box but that’s like saying air is more useful than water.  

Both are necessary tools for this sport.  Nothing builds confidence like training your brain to call shots down to the clock hour and scoring ring. Can’t train that skill without long-line scoping. Staying organized with a shot-by-shot routine is vital, and a box really helps that.  It also gives you a place to mount a brass deflector and a scope, minimizing distractions and unnecessary body movement.

I was looking at an almost new 3 gun case.  Wasn't sure about mounting a scope on it so I passed.  What came up was the same box with a scope included.  I did buy that one.
Thanks Wink

I shoot doubles and triples all the time in Slow Fire. When it is working well, I go with it.

Ever wonder why you can shoot a tight knot in Timed Fire but Slow Fire is all over the map?

I had a mentor watching me shoot SF once and he said something along the lines of, "I notice you shoot two or three shots at times, and other times you only shoot one. Why don't you shoot doubles and triples always?"

My response: "You have it backwards, my friend. Doubles and triples are the outcome of when I'm shooting well; they are not the cause. When it is working, double down. When it is not, slow down and re-check your shot plan."

You're playing with house money shooting doubles and triples in SF when it's working. If that trigger finger is moving smoothly, it ain't getting any better.
