SP--I've thought about the initial results some. The one revelation I've had overnight is this...
The MantisX device measures ALL movement, in other words, shooter wobble PLUS trigger pull. My average score from a rest was probably 98, standing two hand 96, and bullseye 91, on Friday, first time out, with some bad back spasms. From a rest, I had the gun very steady before initiating the trigger pull. It shows in the scores. But the way the device is calibrated, it could differentiate between a perfect pull from a rest--I only had one--and an average pull from a rest, a 98.n. I couldn't tell the difference looking through the red dot at the aim point. One thing I know how to do is shoot from a rest. My scores seem to confirm what I was already thinking, but there is still room for improvement!! The device can differentiate between a day when I could shoot a 3" group from one where I can shoot a 6" group, at 100 yards with the P-09. When I bought the MantisX, I had much lower expectations on the sensitivity side. I think it is good enough to help me refine even a pretty good bench rest technique.
In bullseye practice, I know already when I have a day where I can't minimize the wobble before releasing the shot. I will shoot low 90s timed fire 25 yards, pack up and go home. On a good day, I will shoot 97 and have a 99 or 100 for at least one target out of 6. I think I can at least quantify what kind of day to expect from dry fire before even heading to the range if I wanted, with the device. Might save a trip and some ammo.
I had about the worst bullseye practice ever last weekend (before getting the device) simply because I couldn't relax due to the back problems. I'm still having some problems. I am NOT having problems pulling the trigger smoothly. It is the wobble, standing, single hand.
Live fire results on Sunday will be interesting, that's for sure. And I'm going to shoot the P-09 from a rest at 100 yards this coming week, also.
