Doing well at 25 yards isn’t about doing extra things to shoot better. It’s stripping away the extra stuff that make you shoot worse.
It’s hard to hold the gun still and pull the trigger. Your grip influences your trigger pull, as well as the sights. And how you pull the trigger can influence your grip.
The easiest way to fight through all of this is to give your brain one thing to think about, then automate the rest. We’re terrible at multitasking. So why would we want to do it while trying to shoot a tiny group?
For my “one thing”, I focus on the top serration of my front sight. When I’m shooting well, I don’t even think about pulling the trigger. I just know that the gun needs to go off in the near future, and it does. Setting up my grip properly before initiating this process gives me the best chance for success. And the best chance for only thinking about one thing.
The cool thing about this is that you don’t need a light trigger, or an “ergonomic” grip, or any number of other things to do well. Because you’re simply doing what you’ve programmed your body and mind to do through repetition, it doesn’t matter if your trigger is a stock Glock trigger. You know how to pull it.
Currently sitting at a 91 average for this week’s 10@25, all fired cold on different days. Will tomorrow keep me above 90? We’ll see.
Did better on the Super Test today, by 10 points. Score of 280.
Final 10 rounds were on a regular Test, dropped 11 points but had a time of 5.91 seconds. Five rounds were all in the 8 ring at 12:00, nearly touching each other.
One thing I’m learning is that I can almost always aim lower than I think I’ll need. The gun shoots pretty much exactly 3″ high at 25 yards, probably around half that at 15. Keeping the sights in the lower half of whatever I’m shooting at will always work out.
