  1. Why not on steel? Have you thought about it? Over my development as a shooter I've noticed that at different times I placed my attention and focus on different things to produce accurate shots, and I don't mean visual focus. The visual focus I use for precise shots have always been on the front sight. But the mental focus has changed several times. On certain time periods it was "keeping the front and rear sights aligned, let the target take care of itself", then it could change to "focus hard on the target and then feel how you "bring back" your eye focus to the sights", then it was the "sh
  2. In contrast with my usual 2000 pages long posts (sorry, I'm working on getting my point accross in a brief manner), I'll try to make this one short. Shooter H, I can offer some advice that helped me (and still do), -(Learn to and) Call your shots. I know a lot of people that can shoot accurately but can't call their shots. They depend on perfect sight pictures, conscious trigger pulls and a better than average pulse (steady hands) to get their hits. If, on a given shot, one of these components is lacking, they're in the dark. -Understand and keep in mind that a shot doesn't HAVE to be a PER
  3. A couple days ago I sent a PM to benos asking him something. He replied and in a brief exchange of PMs he mentioned he enjoyed reading some of my recent posts. I replied to him with the following text, and he considered it would be good to post it in the main forums. I agree, so here it goes. I hope it's helpful to you, and as always, I'm open to opinions and critiques. Omar. "Thank you Brian, I'm glad you enjoy reading the "findings" that I post. You know, I put that in quotes because I don't mean to say I've found anything new. The things that I wrote have always been there for whoever wan
  4. Do I really have to say this is awsome too? One day I'll look at my "great benos quotes" wordpad file's properties to see if it's a bazillion gigs big... EDIT: Actually I just re-read basically the whole thread and there's great posts from everyone! I'll share a little in-the-zone experience, but with a twist, it's not shooting related. I work at an office. I classify papers that deal with real state property based on where the property is located. In my province there are 136 "counties", each with a code. There are 14 different areas in the building I work to send those papers dependi
  5. Good stuff. I'll give it a try on my next practice session and see if the presence of a No-Shoot changes the way I engage a target. Thanks! EDIT: Sorry bk, I think your shooting is really good, but I feel inadequate to offer a useful critique to you.
  6. That doesn't bring me the best results. Is the seeing the front sight (or the slide, or a perfect sight picture, or a pistol shaped blur, etc.) all that's necessary to fire an A on a close (or far, or partially covered by a no-shoot, etc.) target? Sure. Actually, all that's necessary is the gun to be pointed at it (when the bulllet leaves the barrel). In my opinion, a better question would be: "How much input do you need from the gun to be certain of where you hit, AKA calling the shot?" This will vary from shooter to shooter and target to target. Some may need a perfect sight picture, som
  7. I realized that aiming is different than wanting to align the sights with the target (no matter where your visual focus is at). Aiming is wanting to hit the target and at the same time the physical effect of that desire. I noticed that when I'm shooting with poor results, I try to "align the sights, then get them on the target, then keeping it there, etc". When I shoot alright, aiming becomes "getting the gun onto the target". But when I'm really shooting well aiming becomes "getting there", as in me getting there. Like gun and me aren't separate things, or like I'm the bullet or some other
  8. Sorry for your loss. I love my cats and dogs like I love my family, because that's what they are. They truly have quirks and attitudes and customs that make up personalities, like your Micro cleaning your son's face and I'm sure many other things that even when you saw her doing them every day brought a smile to your face.
  9. Hi, people! A shooting buddy and I have lately dedicated a lot of time to finding, recognizing and developing mental aspects while shooting. For example, noting when your subconscious mind is operating, when the conscious is, realizing when you are trying to shoot instead of shooting... In a sentence: to be aware of our minds. We noted that we had different "looks" when operating at different levels of mental functioning. (Kinda like in Rocky 3, eye of the tiger? hehehe) So we created a game, it's called "What were you thinking???" and it goes like this: Use whatever drill you want. The sho
  10. Thank you for reading and replying guys! Great stuff short_round! You're right, I shoot iron sights (production). I'd like to grab a scoped gun and try that "cones" idea! I just read the thread (including my own post), and I want to make it very clear to everyone (including myself, the next time I read this) that the "shooter's bubble" is not the "be all, end all" of shooting. It is simply shooting. Or, one of the many faces of shooting. It is a concept that I visualize, a mental technique that I (currently) use, to put myself in a state of mind that allows me to shoot and just shoot without
  11. Well, it's been a long time since I last posted here, so, nice to see you guys again. I warn you, this is going to be a long post, but please read it carefully, as I want to believe I wrote it, trying to break the barrier that language and writing places on us. Lately I've taken a more philosophical approach to shooting wondering about the value of such important and often mentioned concepts as neutrality, shot-calling, relaxation, awareness, and everything we consider is necesary for good performance, so it led me to the root question of what is good performance? "What is shooting well?"
  12. I received the replacement part today, as expected, the light works perfectly fine!
  13. At one point, I was watching the sights lift, and I found a problem. I'm aming at a spot on the target, right? well, when the sight lifted and I followed it, I'd have to "re-find" that spot on the target again to shoot. Like it's been said, watching is not the same as seeing. I'm experimenting with keeping my eyes "fixed" at a spot in a target, while keeping my eye focus flexible.
  14. Bad luck: I bought an Insight Technology M3 light from a friend. Short story, when getting out of a car, I inadvertently dropped it on a 4 lane road, walked 2 blocks to my house and when I realized I didn't have the light, I retraced my steps only to find the M3, in it's package... run over by, at least, a car... Good luck, tough light: I pickup up the trashed case, and inspected the light. Scratches all over the place, some lost material on it's side, and a broken cover plate/rocker switch. But the rest of the light was fine. No broken bulb, no shattered bezel, no bent o deformation on the
