At the range....Type of targets.. does it matter?
I was at the range today and was wondering; Does type of target affect anyone elses shooting? I noticed that with Body Silhouette targets that have the red circle center mass I am able to hit inside the circle no problem at all (even with the sporadic shooting of my LC9, its me not the gun im still getting used to the loooooong trigger pull). But, I purchased a couple of the cheap $1 per sheet targets from the range shop that is 4 small 6" circle bullseye targets on one big square sheet and boy do I have trouble with those. I was having trouble staying inside each target let alone in the center of the target. I dont know if it is the fact that the target is smaller or not but it concerns me that my accuracy is so much different on a sheet of 4 6" targets compared to when its a silhouette with a small 2" circle in center mass. Even on the silhouette I can aim at the head and hit very accurately. Are my eyes just not good at adapting to different sight pictures with different types of targets? God forbid I need to use my weapon in a defensive situation before I fix this problem, if I do I sure hope I have my silhouette target accuracy with me instead of my circle bullseye target accuracy. Yikes.
