Default It's the damn sights, I swear :)

Ok, so I "miked" a few 10 yard targets (two of them, and one plate on the Texas Star) at a revolver match last weekend, so I figured it gots to be the gun.

I took it to the indoor shooting range (Shooters World in Tampa) and shot it at 25 yards freestyle, then 10 yards strong hand, and 10 yards weak hand.

The sights must have been off at the match, but got bounced back in place in my shooting bag?

What else could it have been?

It has to be that a microburst descended between you and the target that nobody else felt. No other explanation.

It's definitely the sights, the ones on either side of your nose.

It could happen...

A few years back I was at Front Sight with my brother. While my pistol was into tHe armorer for a necessary trigger replacement. My brother "kindly" let me use his back up Glock 34. The first 2 or 3 shots were dead on, then I was wide right, then I was wide left, then I was all over the place. In "concentrating on the front sight" what did I see? The front fiber-optic sight was loose.

My brother swears it was an accident. Me, I am not so sure...

Directional lighting. Side lighting can shift your sight picture.

Op, take the sights off your handgun, and look at the target.

Wait, first have your eye dominance checked, then your Weaver stance, then your teacup grip, then take the sights off.

I think he's saying you choked.

I was in a class at Front Sight. During the night shoot I felt as invincible as I've ever felt in terms of marksmanship. I could not put a bullet wrong.

Next morning I can't hit the side of a barn. Checked the sights, nothing wrong on the gun.

Human performance is unpredictable, dependent on things we're often not even aware.

And yes, microbursts are a thing.

Now that is a crack-up. I'm going to have to remember this one!
