Very rightly cautioned by KBW shb.
NaveedGhani - You may practice dry fire without mag as well unless you feel the fun to be very light in weight.

I learnt that shooting from 25m is kinda difficult. A mm error can make remarkable difference. Also at 25m the black portion on target becomes so small that my sights feels bigger in comparison.
Needs alot of practice.

I learnt something NOT on the range but through one of the Posts on the forum that despite the fact I am right handed, I think I am left eye dominant.. This was ensured through focusing on an object is distance with both eyes open and hiding it with my thumb... and when I closed my left eye....the object had moved where as if I did otherwise, the object would stay at the same position....

Not an issue brother. I have the same problem and so does KBW. Just learn to work around it

That was the Golden moment of today's session at range. GunPsycho found a broken skeet & challenge FK to hit in the Air. FK loaded one round of 9mm and hold the gun in his one hand and thrown the piece of skeet in the air by other hand and after fire bullet hit the target amazingly when skeet was about to touch the ground in reaction we saw FK dancing, flying in Shoib Akhter style and few comment for targeted skeet…I am not allowed to write here. That was really unbelievable and the way FK celebrated his success was delightful to watch.

Have shot a few flying birds with pistol and .22 but never a skeet with a pistol. Ghazi sb, during his prime time, was known to do that quite often, ie, shooting cans / bottles in the air.

Woooohoo,

Was there a dance after shooting the skeet? I really missed the opportunity hitting skeet in just one round...WOW!

FK Sir, did you said that you are retiring.....Sorry we are not ready for such surprises and hope it was just a "siyasi bayan".

Challenges are always a good self motivating primers...but it should only be to prove to yourself and not the world :P

However, I'll match every challenge that you pass...how's that for a challenge on my part?? :D

Cheers...

Today, I learned that 20 shots are more than enough for one to practice on. One should make every bullet count, and not have the sloppy approach like "lag hi jaey gi target per" (depending on luck to let you get the target) and instead should make it a point that every time the trigger breaks, the aim is water tight and it was your best shot possible...

20 rounds are enough, and should be worthy of your skills then :)

Cheers...

Was taking more than enough time to break the shot. SA pointed out the mistake and advised to shoot in 5 to 7 seconds maximum. Secondly gone through all the basics again. Thanks SA :)

Absolutely agreed. Shooting more number of rounds may be more pleasing from fun point of view, it doesn't help much in becoming a good shooter. Professional shooter are at times made to dry fire all day, hundreds of times, and then given just a few bullets to shoot; sometimes even less then five and sometimes, it is just dry firing all day. No live rounds every day.

Wonderful advice KBW Sir, Thanks. Decided will not shoot more than 20 rounds in one session and do dry practice instead. Even will do dry practice for atleast half an hour before starting live rounds. After every string, will dry practice again for 10 minutes.

Dry firing before and after live ammo is a very good idea as it will make out the best for the live ammo used on that day...
