Decided to shoot my daily 20 shots on a 25 yard IDPA target today. Some interesting things happened.

Note that the group is very vertical. I think this is because at 25 yards, the front sight post naturally settles nicely between the left and ride edges of the target.

The vertical is much harder for me to keep a consistent hold.


Based on my dot drill performance, I think the above target shows more error in sight picture than in trigger control.

Naturally, the shot that’s way low and a few other outliers are probably trigger error. But for the most part, I like it.

Next time, I might spray paint a horizontal line across the target to see if it helps.


If you don’t like shooting and getting better at shooting there’s a good chance you won’t like my newsletter either.
