Ya know Boys, I can take out the trash and the dog will just lay on the couch and not move. But if I grab my weapon, and she's not even in the same room, she hears it and I ain't going out the door with out her tagging along. I think she likes to laugh at me when I miss.

Image

Anyway, I am getting used to the holographic scope. I could not co-witness it with the front sight so I took off the sight and use the scope like it's supposed to be used.
To get used to it I will fire one round then put the weapon down and use my binoculars to check the POI. That way I am re-sighting my weapon every time I fire it.
If you look at the left side of the targets, you can see the green sight I am using to line up on the target. The circles are 4 inches round and the targets are 100 feet away. I have to shoot through my pistol bench as you can see.

Image

There are 10 rounds in each target and my pattern isn't bad, but,, there darn near always is at least one round that I don't get lined up right and will end up out side or the circle. Now I am getting better, but I'm not there yet.
