Dewberry Posted May 29, 2013 Share Posted May 29, 2013 So first some back ground, for years before I ever started to shoot a gun on a regular basis I was shooting a bow and arrow which has fiber optic sights. In archery I was taught to look at and focus on the target and just let the dot from the fiber optic be picked up by my peripheral vision and place it on the target (this was a relatively slow process taking 3 or 4 seconds to sight, hold on target and release the arrow. In the few local uspsa matches I have shot so far I have used this method for aiming my pistol also. It has worked decently, I hit alpha almost every time and I finish about half way through the pack both beating and losing to some b's and c's. Now to the point, i have been reading alot on tracking my sight and calling my shot because i cant really do this yet. since every one says focus on the front sight i was working on that in dryfire practice this evening. I found that if I aimed at a target then looked at and focus on the front sight i had one front sight and 2 targets but the target became so blurry I could never hope to hit the alpha, so I started trying other things which led to an ah-ha moment when I found that I could focus on the front sight but look at the target this gave me one target that was kinda blurry but clear enough to hit and two front sight posts one was crystal clear and in line with my sight picture the other was off to the side and kinda blurry but my mind doesn't even notice it. Is this what every one is talking about when they say focus on the front sight or should I really be looking at and focusing on the front sight to the point where there is one sight and two blurry targets and then learn how to distinguish those targets and hit the correct one accurately? Sorry for the wordy post but thank you in advance for any help Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
