Moving Up to the Next Level
I've got to admit that I am a pretty novice shooter. I've had my carry permit for a year and carry regularly, have joined a private gun club and go to the range once or twice a month. I typically shoot about 50 rounds with some of those one-handed strong and one-handed weak, but all shots are taken with aligned sights.
I'm concerned that just aiming at paper bullseyes doesn't make me a good self-defense shooter. If I get active in IDPA shooting, or ever find myself in a real-life must-shoot situation, I won't have time to acquire a proper sight picture. How do I advance to the next level of shooting profieciency so that shooting becomes a second nature act?
