First topic message reminder :

Just thought we could all use some Positive Reinforcement so I made this a "sticky" which means its always at the top in this topic. So when you shoot a clean target and want to hoot a little post it here for all to see!  cheers


Here is what I did last night at our weekly indoor league, 50 ft on the NRA reduced target, shot Timed fire style in four strings of 5 shots, we hang two targets at a time. 100 6x and a 100 7x this was a first for me to clean two in the same set of targets. Ended with a 493 26x out of possible 500.

Congrats!!  Keep it in your box and study it before each match until you can replace it with a better one.

I'd say, two clicks up and 1 or 2 right should be just about correct. Smile

Nice Target!  Another one that should become a visual aid...

Took my new to me FWB AW93 to the range today to train. Shot my first every clean TF target. I feel that this pistol and me will be best friends. Smile

Congrats!  I'm going to suggest something slightly different from Jon, however. (smile)

I would try moving your back foot slightly CCW (from top).  That might lessen the vertical stringing as well as shifting the group.  But, that's just me possibly over thinking and adding in a few too many cents...

You know Ed you bring up a very good point. There are some ranges that I compete at that the targets are crooked in relationship to the firing point.  I have a tendency to constantly having to change my point of aim with my feet. Thanks for the reminder :-)

Shot my sexiest target yet today. 25 yard timed fire, 45acp, 100-9x. Pistol was built by Jon, its a work of art. Ammo is Magnus #801 over 4.2 WST.

Ed, could you please post something on the forum about how doing what you suggested would minimize vertical stringing?  I'm trying to imagine how it would do that.

Ed took too long Laughing It is all about stance, position and grip. If you stand there pointing your pistol at the target and it naturally is aligned high or low you will have to force your arm up/or down to align the sights. Every shot. Adjust your trailing foot to relieve this constant repositioning and decrease vertical stringing. Well that's my thoughts on it anyhow.

When you are standing naturally with your feet apart, there is more tendency to sway front to back than side to side.  The more you face the target, the more the group size increases vertically.  As you move your rear foot, the vertical/horizontal component will shift.

Note that in reality, the sway is the same amount at the target as at the gun, i.e. near zero.  However, the perception of the sway can trigger corrective measures that will cause you to deflect your aim.

Bruce - awesome!!!!!!!!

Ed - when you explain it like that, it's "obvious".    .......if one foot was alongside the other, the sway would be front/back.  If one foot was behind the other, the sway would be right/left.  So is standing at about a 45 degree angle a good compromise?  That's what Doug Koenig was showing in his video.  Interesting!

Bruce,  You better get to work!  That's from last century.(smile)  It was good seeing you at the Black Bear Championship.  I hope you can make our State Match.

Mike,  It's only a starting point.  As soon as you can realize personally, the last portion of my previous post, you can move to other aspects and the advantages they provide.  There are uncountable aspects that can aid or undermine our shooting.
