An idea for retention shooting
One of my two plans for practice drills to pay more attention to this year is shooting from close retention - then too will be much more shooting on the move.
Thinking of the retention aspect, it occurs to me that a useful accessory could be what is in effect a pattern board/target, as we might use for shotguns.
A std 37 would probably do but I want to stretch range a bit and so a 4' x 4' sheet with a center mark seems like it might be useful. Mainly because if grip, general technique etc is a bit sloppy, I want to see where I hit, and I expect shots to vere laterally just as much as in elevation.
In fact this could also be useful for on-the-move tho of course, ''cheating'' somewhat because bigger than man size.
Prime reason is - registering wide hits - nothing more frustrating that knowing you have missed but no idea where! Once things zoned in enough to be consistent then switch back to 37's or similar.
