Default For new shooters

I came across this picture and thought I'd share...I would have been a better, more accurate shooter if I had been taught this simple and effective lesson

Always worked for me. When I had to start wearing glasses, my aiming didn't change. A few years back I had that LASIK surgery and now I see great without glasses. No change in aiming.

That is the recommended practice for "Bulleye" Shooting. It does not work for combat and reactive pistol shooting. In combat shooting "Tunnel Vision" takes over. You see a clear super sharp image of the adversary. I hope anyway.

Handgun accuracy for me has always been about not thinking about hitting the target. Just doing it. That probably doesn't make any sense to anybody, but it's always worked for me, especially during fast target acquisition & rapid fire.

That is what I teach. But the distance this works varies greatly from individual to individual!
