Today's shooting with Single Hand.

Practicing for the TGF-Karsaaz competitions. Hopefully things will progress.

Will be posing questions for the senior members regarding stance for single hand shooting and what does 45 degree stance in relation to the target etc.

Just shot 4 strings today and wrapped up. No dry firing during the strings. Did try fired at home few times during Ramadan.

Details in the target pic

This is very good shooting with single hand. I believe in 5 or 6 sessions, you will have much improved results.

Hope so I get better....have few questions in mind regarding standing position and natural point of aim.

Read that the shooter should stand 45 degree angle from target and try to find natural point of aim. Though I did try to have the angled standing position while dry firing and actual shooting session but not sure if that was correct. Also, wasnt sure how to have natural point of aim.

WH - Single hand shooting is not easy and having the results you show is pretty good to start your single hand shooting.

You can find the basics of Natural POA in my thread, very extensively elaborated by Sir KBW. The aim is to get your foot in a stance where you can raise your shooting arm and acquire your POA with your eyes closed. Elevation is not such an issue so don't worry about having your front sight above or below the POA. Natural POA is acquired with eyes closed, and with a rough estimate of your natural arm elevation along with your neck turned towards the shooting arm shoulder, the footing and stance as you would while shooting normally. Now when you open your eyes, you should be able to acquire the target by just moving your arm slightly up or slightly down. If you need to move right or left, then lower your arm, adjust your feet slightly towards left or right and retake the Natural POA. For further guidance, please refer to my thread or if Saif bhai or Sir would be kind enough to pitch in, would be great...

Cheers...

That is some good shooting with single hand brother. I think you were shooting after a long break. You can do wonders if you practice regularly.

Wajeeh
Single hand is a bit challenging first up. You will see improvement in 3 or 4 sessions.

Nice results, please tell us what reason you have recognized for the rounds landing outside black circle.
For me the reason is calling shot after passing the window of 5-7 seconds.

NR - for me its the trigger control. Not proper squeezing as this was suggested by Saif also. Further, he advised me that I was opening my grip just after breaking the shot. So this could have effects too!!

My view was lack of concentration, no dry fire practice leading to lack of focus on basics and also having difficulty in grip control. Have all these points for the next session and will try to have dry fire sessions on Sunday at home.

What I have noticed is that TRIGGER CONTROL plays a very vital role in performance in shooters after they have passed a beginner/amateur phase.

WH - you are improving brother!!!

Too right, TRIGGER CONTROL and focus will make a lot of difference... :) and both can be achieved via dry practice...

Cheers...

Nice shooting WH. :)

You have very rightly identified importance of trigger control. How important is trigger control? Well, if you just align the gun correctly towards the target, without aiming and operate the trigger properly, all your shots will still be on the target though you have not even aimed properly. And do all the focus in the world but give a jerk to the trigger, your shot might not even be on the target. In my humble understanding, 80% of the fliers are due to bad trigger control alone.

regards

Thank you KBW shb

Yes, I have realised that BAD Trigger control is the major area due to which shots are off target.

WH

A quick way to understand you trigger control errors is to practice some dry fire using a red dot on your gun. You immediately see the gun movements when you press the trigger and you can find very quickly test different grips and find a way to press the trigger with minimum gun movements.
It is very efficient to understand the causes of your flyers.

Thanks Bro...Yes, I have tested this but not with changing grips. Will give it a try too.
