I’ve been shooting for years, long guns and pistols, even competing in steel plate matches. My focus has always been accuracy at distance. On a recent trip to the range my shooting partner demonstrated her defensive tactic practice and I was intrigued. Then she really got my attention by sending the target carrier out to 25 feet, hitting the “home” button so it started to travel back, drawing and unloading 16 rounds into the high center chest before the target made it all the way back. This was something I had never seen before and was intrigued. I had to try it. Fresh target, out to 25 feet, “home” and I started shooting. At that speed you are point shooting but I was pleased to find I had a fairly tight group in the center. More than that, it was FUN!
It reminded me that we should always be learning and trying new techniques. Even if you’ve been shooting for years, there is something new to try, and you might even enjoy it. I’m looking forward to the next trip to the range so I can do it again!
