Straight from the firing line...





Time to go home, get some lunch, and review the target pics.

Thanks.  Today I tried working  on not pulling the trigger if I felt I wasn't ready to pull it correctly.  I still had some trigger pull mistakes but more and more shots are hitting the black now.  I'm ok with hitting the 8 ring but anything farther out makes me cringe.

Its a process. Just keep a mental notes on the bad shots if you call them, but don't get too upset.
We all pull shots, but if you realize where the problem was and correct on the next shots it with better results, you are on the right track.

I count 11 ten ring hits out of 20 shots fired on the last target!!  Forget about the others.  This result should give you much confidence that you absolutely know how to pull the trigger without moving the gun.

Take up the slack, add some pressure and then move the trigger smoothly to the rear, just moving your trigger finger toward your nose.  Tight grip, trigger prep, smooth pull.  Accept a little wobble, but average having the sight alignment in the center of the black.  Do this 20 times in a row. 

It's the 20 times in a row that is difficult.  But you are well on your way.  Next week, it will be 13 or 14 out of 20 in the 10 ring.  I hope.  Looks like great results to me.
