Default Some garbage shooting

I shot with my dad today. He likes to put the target at 15 yards without even zoning in. I told him I need to start close and then well shoot far once I zero out. He frustrated me so much and I stopped shooting after about 40
Rounds or so. My shots were HORRIBLE and disgusting, also I could not get my usual focus with two eyes open. I am pissed.. Sorry guys i didn't know where else to vent about shooting and guns.

Well just chalk it up as a bad at the range. It happens.
Could be worse, you could be having a good day at work like me.

its never any fun being mad. but how can you go to the range and be mad? ive considered every range day a great day even if i only am watching and helping. just being around firearms makes me smile... oh and btw. if you cant pull off a shot from random distances. perhaps thats something to be incorperated in your future practice?? i mean how many times will the bad guy always be at a certain distance waiting for you to find your zero?

It's just that I have my own order of shooting so I can shoot well at far distance, but my dad only knowing how to hold a gun likes to mess around with me as a dad. So it gets frustrating when I take it very serious. And then I get frustrated. It was a garbage day of shooting.

15 yards isn't distance at all.

Honestly sounds like you need more practice. Become one with your gun and stuff.



Don't let things you cannot control rule your life.

Your right about spending time with dad. And 15 yards is a distance for someone who only shoots once a week and new to pistols.

I'd give a lot to have one day at the range with either my father or my stepfather. Both are on the other side now.
