Good at shooting interactive targets, but not paper
Yesterday I went to get a pistol worked on and the 'smith was teaching a small basic IPSC class. We signed up for it.
I took my gun, a CZ SP-01 and tried it out. From 7 meters I was grouping very poorly, all over. I very rarely shoot any more, maybe once every three months now. What I was shooting was a basic piece of cardboard.
I was trying my best to focus on the front sight and make the target and the rear sights blurry, but i couldn't do it. I couldn't focus enough to aim at a single part of the paper. My eyes focused on the front and rear sight, and the target was slightly blurry ,then the sights got blurry a bit but the target was clear.
I do wear corrective lenses and am near-sighted.
However, when I shoot interactive targets like cans, pop bottles, etc. I am a much better shot and am more able to put my shots where I want them.
On targets though, even bullseye targets, I have a difficult time focusing on the front sight and just kind of see the whole thing as a piece of paper/cant concentrate.
