Dot Torture

I finally gave it a try. The range doesn't permit drawing from holsters, so I had to shoot from low ready. With my Model 17, I went 49/50 at three yards, which isn't a passing score. The last stage, where you "shoot one, reload one" isn't exactly wheelgun friendly. Still, it was fun to do after a session of Bullseye practice.

The session before that, I tried one to Tam's ideas, albeit slightly modified: I drew a somewhat fist-sized circle on the back of a silhouette target, with the bottom of the circle at eye-level. Then I drew two lines down the back, two inches apart, centered on the target. The idea is that only shots that land within the lines count as hits.

Come to think of it, the same holds true for bowling pin matches: If you don't hit on the center, you won't clear the pins.
