    It's not always accurate. I shoot low and to the right due to a combination of the stigmatism in my eyes, and being right handed but left eye dominant. Every gun I shoot, I shoot consistently low and right. Free hand shooting, or from the bench. Handgun or long gun. It matters not. It's why I need adjustable rear sights on my handguns. The longer the gun, the less the deviation.

    My mechanics were confirmed to be correct when I was going through hunters safety course. We had a gentlemen that taught basic shooting in the military years before, and he spent some time with all of us kids to verify our shooting mechanics. It's pretty funny, we had two shooting mini-competitions at the end of the class. I was using my Father's Ruger 10/22 and dominated that. When we did the clay pigeon portion, I bombed it horribly. It took me years to become proficient with a shotgun vs a rifle. I had trouble compensating for fast moving targets.

    What's the correction if you don't hit anything? Get closer.

    I like that. It's an instructional I've used often in a different context, shooting much larger calibers. If you get close enough that the target fills most or all of your field of view, it's hard to miss!

    Excellent chart. Thanks for posting it. It will be a good one to use in my basic pistol classes. All of my students will take one home with them.

    Yeah, that's a great chart. I shoot low and left like a lot of people and I used to just aim high and right but I don't like "giving the hole (target) away" as we say in golf so what I do now with some success is aim dead at the target but with the white dot a little to the right and a little high. I cheat it out a little more say from 50 ft compared to 25, etc. In the end it may not be any more accurate but at least I get to shoot at the target instead of away from it.
