    Tx CHL target, X-Ring too low?

    Recently I had occasion to use the new Tx CHL target. It seems that the X-Ring is too low.

    Has there been a change in the targets? I don't remember the x-ring being that low a few years ago.

    Thanks,

    As I recall, in my class in March we were using a standard B-27 silhouette. The X-ring on those may seem low as it is geared to train people to shoot center mass as opposed to aiming for the heart. I do believe the deputy teaching the class said something to the renewal group that it was a different target than they had used in the past.

    Most targets do have an X-ring that is a bit lower than the heart. However, a liver shot works too, and in the heat of the moment, follow-up shots will probably land progressively higher.

    I just did my CHL end of April and the instructor said the targets were new this year...

    I completed my CHL class about three months ago, and we used Q targets. They simply took the score from them, wrote it on the application, and I was done. The targets do not go with the application.

    Seems to me that as long as you aim for center mass, it really doesn't matter what is there, as you will be causing damage. As my instructor tried to get us into the habit, when using deadly force, the object is not to kill the agressor. It is to be used only to stop the agression.

    Your points for your competency don't involve the X anyways, so focus on your 7 and 10 feet shot groupings. If you will keep your 15 feet groupings to the 9 point circle, and then the 7-10 foot range groups in the 10 point circle, you'll end up with a 245 out of 250.

    The Texas shooting proficiency part is pretty easy if you have shooting experience.

    I think the X on B-27s is to identify COM, not the heart. Common shooting theory is that one should shoot for the COM, not the heart.

    Of course if the 'threat' is only partially disclosed then the X would probably no longer be the COM and one would need to aim for the 'COM' that is available.

    I'd prefer the X to be a bit higher though.
