  1. As I've aged my ability to see far away objects has diminished. Just recently I found my 25 yard groups spreading out. I started to analyze this and wondered what the solution was. My front sight is nice and crisp but the target is blurry. In my mind, I said this is what you want for proper sight alignment on difficult shots. Upon further analysis, I decided my target was blurry enough to prevent me from fine tuning my point of aim such as the A zone or 10 ring. I went to the range today to try and determine my best course of action to resolve this problem. I shot groups without my prescription glasses, with prescription glasses and with one prescription lense covering my non-dominant eye (I typically squint my non-dominant eye). Shooting with the lense covering my non-dominant eye and both eyes open was the worst, so it's a no go. The groups with the other two were very similar with the point of impact slightly higher without prescription lenses. I think, due to my concentration, I was still able to shoot decent groups with and without the glasses. However, as my eyes get tired my groups without the glasses start to spread out. The drawback to the prescription glasses is they make my front sight slightly blurry. After careful consideration, I've decided a prescription slightly weaker (than my current one) might give me the proper compromise between a crisp front sight and being able to see the target clear enough to determine the center. Anyone who has had this experience have any ideas?
  2. Hi everyone, i posted this topic a couple weeks back in the "introduce yourself" section and wanted to see if maybe i re-posted it in here it might grab someones attention - thank s for looking, and for any help offered! -Chase M. Posted 26 March 2013 - 10:29 AM Hi everyone, I’m a newbie here but have been lurking on the forum for a few months trying to gather tips whenever, wherever I can. I just finished Brian’s book and to say I am inspired would be a tremendous understatement. Who would have thought the concepts, ideas and strategies he thought up 20+ years ago would still be just as relevant as they are today! (Thank you again, Brian) So on to my latest road block - Shooting groups from 18-25+ yards-freehand(I mean standing with both hands).Before you all beat me up too bad - I am following the steps as have been outlined by the master - started out shooting at nothing at all, just the berm. Got comfortable enough to "see" what I needed to see when I needed to see it given the circumstance (shooting at a berm with no target) and felt it was time to move on to bench rest shooting. I stayed on that damn bench until I could get my 2.5-3" groups at 20-25Yds consistently with little or no flyers on most given days. Relying on mechanics, eyes open, calling the shot as best I could see it, following through- everything was working well from the bench. So I moved on...I went in steps- started at 5 yards, moved to 10 then on to 15 and after that is where things started to change...Drastically. I observed that at about 18-20+ yards my fundamentals begin to deteriorate rapidly. I am overcome by "thought" rather than "action" - immediately I am doing mental checks on ALL my fundamentals - stance, grip, pressures, relaxed stomach, FRONT SIGHT, EYES OPEN, trigger, call the shot - EVERYTHING! And its during that time my form just goes to complete shit. I’m anticipating the shot/recoil, losing the front sight, incorrectly calling my shots; it’s just the worst feeling ever. So my remedy when this is happening is to first observe that it is happening and go back to what’s comfortable and easy (I know what a puss) moving it back to 7 yards, 10 yards 15 yards and guess what - as soon as work back up to the 20-25 yard range - it’s the same problem! It’s almost like at that distance (20-25 yds.) my mind flips this anxiety/doubt switch that on some days it literally seems impossible to overcome so i resort back to bench resting, or moving back to 10-15 yards and usually end up leaving the range feeling very unaccomplished and pretty bummed out... Sorry for the rant! Please know I am not looking for that "one special answer" I was really hoping just to get your guys opinions, possibly some tips and maybe some shared similar experiences if at all applicable or relevant to my situation. Thank you everyone in advance for taking the time to read and/or respond all input is much appreciated! Make it a great day everyone!! -Chase M.
