Front Sight

So THAT's what happens when you focus on the front sight. It seems so counter-intuitive to me.

Look! I'm not wandering to the right. That's 15 rounds of .177 wadcutters @ 30 feet. A slighty different technique than what I use with a .75 caliber smooth bore with no sights.

Here are the next 15 rounds.

These were all done seated, resting my elbows on my knees.
Now I just might have to adjust my sight picture a little more, and I may be good to go. I think what worked for me was breaking the process down so I was dealing with fewer variables at a time. I hope the skills will transfer to something with a little more oomph.

Aiming update

I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing differently except aiming a little lower, but it seems to be working.

Both targets at 25', seated.

First 15 rounds at 25'.
Last ten rounds at 25'.

I found this picture from 1993.  It was in the newspaper. Shall we list what's wrong?

"Tunnel" hat held on by polyester ribbon.
Wearing stays without a sleeved garment over them. (But hey! At least I was in stays and not the mythical "bodice".)
And ... I'm using a lucet.

I've come a long way.
