If it were me, my POA would be at 12 o'clock

 

I thought about that but kinda reduces the sighting area from a 2" circle to just a single point at the top of the circle.

 

My current thought is to draft an overlay so that I can aim at the center of the target and evaluate the results taking into account the 1.7" POI drop.  The center of the overlay circle would be placed 1.7" below the center of the target circle.

Im out to 7yds on this, the weakhand is where you make or break a clean run.

I've moved on to the Garcia dot drill for most of my dot shooting.


What's the Garcia dot drill?

I did this in the 40° rain last friday. Working it with a wheelgun and speedloaders is it's own specific sort of kink.

This is a great drill....I first saw it in a class with a PD I was able to sit in.   I use it in my classes to show clients that they can take a box of ammo to the range and work some essential skills.  

 

Stay safe!

Found a here in Lawton finally so I have decided I am going to go out and run this drill at least once a month. Don't have a timer yet so I won't be shooting for time just yet. I just want to improve my gun handling and accuracy. I think I am also going to work in the x drill to work on target transitions.

My overall tendency is probably slightly low left.  I need to practice acquiring sights after drawing and target transitions.  You can tell from both targets that just aiming and shooting isn't a problem.  (Dot #1)  When I finished, I shot my 1911 at a blank 8.5x11 piece of paper at the full distance (30yds) and hit it 6 out of 8 times.

 

This is the first time I've ever done "drills" instead of just shooting.

 

Also, the distances aren't exact because H&H doesn't have hash marks on the ground.  I wish they would paint yard lines like a football field.
