Lightbulb Tools for Better Shooting

This thread is a toolbox, not a conversation.

I'm starting this thread in the Women's Forum, for people to post useful links on how to shoot better, from analysis of targets to stance. Any useful tools, other than personal advice.

Here's a link to a Target Analysis site. Savannah turned me on to a paper copy she had from her instructor, and I dug it up online. It's pretty self explanatory, you look at your targets, see where your shots are landing and find the corresponding answer on what you're doing. We may need some help on the terminology, and I'll update if someone will PM me.

Here's another target analysis tool that is similar, but different

http://www.targetshooting.ca/docs/grp-analysis.pdf

If I can figure out how to post the actual diagrams, I will.

That is the old Bullseye shooters chart for right hand shooting only.

Correct HighLander51. But it has helped me a lot! Just reverse for lefties.

So, what's new on this? Site links on tweaking sights on handguns? Site links on looking at spent brass for clues on how your gun is really operating.

Remember, this is not an advice thread. Just useful links. No offense but no opinions needed.

Just handgun shooting? I've got a great chart showing how wind deflects bullets. It's on my frig I can scam it and post it if you want me to.

For long guns I think the best thing is to make small targets...and make them yourself. If you are shooting at 100 yards with a scope you can use the paint program to make a 3" grid with a cross in the center( a bold vertical and horizontal line). It gives you a very precise point to aim. The guy that introduced me to high power shooting would make the ammo and the rifles but he let his wife do the shooting,,, good eyes.
take care
Mike

This is the Army’s marksmanship manual. It’s a long read. I challenge anyone to stop shooting until they have read it cover to cover. I did, and the first time I went out and shot afterwards I center punched the X in the 10 ring.

http://www.saveourguns.com/Ar_Marks_...rain_Guide.pdf

If nothing else you will understand the fundamentals and how to apply them in your style of shooting be it action or bulls eye.

Thanks Snoopy, for your post. I found a website that has a downloadable version of the Army Pistol Marksmanship Manual.

It comes as a "zip file", you just download it and follow the instructions to unzip it. (Zipping a file is a way to compress it for speedy downloads and to save space, for those who don't speak computer.)

It's long, 94 pages, but I think well worth it. The site allso has rifle marksmanship, how to shoot ARs, you name it.

http://stevespages.com/page7c.htm

This site has TONS of weapons manuals. For the Pistol or Rifle Marksmanship Manuals, scroll down almost to the bottom, under "Other Publications". It looks to me like there's a manual for everything from giving a class to not getting lost. You could fill up your hard drive with this. I'm putting mine on a USB drive to save space.

There are lots of schools all over California. I highly recommend taking courses with professional instructors for each weapon system you own. It is a ton of fun, there are always ladies in the classes (doing better than at least half the men if not more).

There are lots of videos you can buy and watch.

Speaking of videos, I had some of Magpul's videos on my amazon wish list and received 'Art of the Tactical Carbine' as a gift for my birthday.

I haven't finished all 4 dvds yet but so far everything I've seen I really liked.

I am taking a home defense class at the end of October. I would highly recommend taking a class like this and making sure you understand the law.

I'm a fan of the Magpul videos also. For you gals who like the shotgun, there is also a great Magpul Art of Dynamic Shotgun DVD.

The Panteo series DVDs are also pretty good, although production is not nearly as slick as the Magpul vids. I have the Travis Haley Panteo DVDs (Pistol, Rifle, AK). The Panteo Productions website also offers a paid subscription for monthly unlimited access to stream all of their DVD material.
http:// www.panteoproductions.com


But nothing beats going to the actual training courses! It helped to watch the DVDs to get familiar with the terminology and preview the drills prior to taking the course, but the courses and the instructors were worth every penny!

Here are a couple videos I've used to diagnose my low and left shot placement.
