Steadily Crossing 90s

Post by nmondal » Sat Sep 14, 2019 8:28 pm

Hi Guys, in the last 7 days -- I am crossing 90s, consistently.

Image Image Image

First series is not coming up properly -- it is close to 90/100 but not 90. Suggestion by Instructor : Do more on the sighters.
On a side note -- he is convinced that I won't need a better gun, at least even for nationals, and he also said -- ever, really.

I do think if one can hit consistent 95+ with each series on paper targets using this gun, then do we need anything better, really?
What do you guys suggest?
Money is NOT a constraint for me, but I really want to find the limit for this "cheapest" gun. :deadhorse: :stupid:

Both the sighter and the first series ( I did not play the 2,3 ) was 91!

I think I got to be steady, and steady and steadier. :stupid:

Great shooting man.
Thank you sir.
This is today, in range ( 362 )

I am getting good grouping at both home and range - just that the centre is off.
Compare this with home :

I guess at home, lighting ( LED Battery operated Lamp ) creates a problem - site pictures move right or below.
Fixing this with external power source -- will try today and update.

Sighters are crossing 90 :-)

Hi Guys,
I have adjusted the rear sights, and now sighters are crossing 90. Here is for today.

Here is what my instructor has to say:

So.. lots of work left. When you are 38 and doing a full time job and shooting... sorta hard. But... that is :deadhorse:
and :stupid:

Switched to Left Eye

Post by nmondal » Thu Oct 17, 2019 8:51 pm

There were issues while shooting with the right eye, I am cross-eyed. My right eye sees to the right, more and more. Thus there was a problem, I have to slide my rear sight to extreme right. Now, due to geometry, this sight is fully dependent ( both in terms of left/right and top/down ) on the precise distance of shooter to the target.
Thus, when i was changing the distance, the shots were moving left/right, while also dipping down or moving up.

Shooting using right eye solved that problem.
I went to Durga Puja, now back and shooting from Monday, so new eye and sight.. scores dipped.
Today I scored 89, which is OK I suppose.
Here is how it looks like:

Image

The shots are now centre aligned no matter where I move and which direction I move. All the time.

Left eye - crossed 90 today first time

Post by nmondal » Sat Oct 19, 2019 7:25 pm

Out of target paper, out of air, going to the range tomorrow post Durga Puja. All set with Left Eye I presume.

3 bad shots, two towards right, one a bit low almost 8.
Bad, got to fix them.
Fingers crossed.

Some shots are to left, standard pattern why?

Post by nmondal » Tue Oct 22, 2019 12:10 am

Hi Guys, need a little bit of favour.
Image
Some shots are coming great, some are shifted towards right.
Why so?
What do I have to do?
