Something Fun To Try
Posted 21 October 2010 - 09:47 PM
So I decided to find out.
the first shot I aimed at the bottom of the card. This was to check the sights. I then fired three shots at 25 yards from a bench rest position. This is done at 25 yards. The group off the bench (even through a flintlock) is pretty good.
since a lot of times, I hunt off shooting sticks, I broke them out. Again, shot one at the bottom to check my sights and stance. The fired a three shot group. Why #4 did what it did, I have no idea. But it is off sticks and anything can happen.
Free hand was a whole different experience. I was happy about the group. You see on the a card the other day, I missed the 3x5 index card. It is meant to show that free hand is a whole different ball game for a lot of shooters. I used to be good at free hand, but I have not practiced it as much as I should.
If you ever get to a range, set a index card out at 25 yards and take three shots at it. See how you do. Do you do a lot of free hand shooting?

I always take a few shots off hand every time I practice. Even if still seated (as I usually am while hunting).
Man, this makes me want to take out the Hawken this weekend.
