    Nice shooting.

    But will you PLEASE re-size your images before posting them.

    Good hits. I had a gun instructor tell me once that 2 hits 6 in. apart do more damage than 2 hits in the same hole. Makes sense to me.

    Much better.

    Actually, I've found that 400-450 pixels X 325-350 pixels is an ideal size for an image posted to a message board.

    Good point, I have never thought of that.

    Yes I've also been instructed to hit about several inches apart, will cause more damage. When the round hits, it normally does about 3-4inches of shock/damage radius to tissue. So another shot in the same area as the first will not do as much damage as a shot further apart doing a wider spread of damage/shock.

    Though two rounds in the same area will gape a wound for massive blood loss.

    I don't usually try to put a round through a hole I just made....I like to try to get a whole a couple inches apart.

    I saw a guy at a range fire firve shots and made two holes.....the instructor gave praise for the accuracy but told him to stagger the shots instead of tring to keep them so close for a SD shooting.
