"Innore yourself"

Temac used this term in his recent post, so, it is not mine, but it's great because it adds something that's may be missing.

It also reminds me of yet another Sgt' Gracy tale about shooting..

He use to check our Score books, wacthing him devide the printed target into four quarters. He would count the impacts in each quarter for each stage of fire recorded from Matches. He told me 70% of my impacts were in the lower right quarter, than he said," See these knobs, turn the damm things." Art

Innore is a word that doesn't ring a bell; does it suffer from a typo?

Art,

I have used a very similar method to analyze groups in my data book. After every firing day in practice or matches, I spend time in the evening studying my data book from the day and making notes for the next day. I call it "doing my homework."

One of the things I do especially for rapid fire stages, is find the center of my group and decide whether I need a zero adjustment. I look at the plotted group, eyeball the middle based on the plotted impacts, and draw a vertical line that splits the group in half left and right. The do the same thing, eyeball the middle and draw a horizontal line that splits the group top to bottom. I now have what looks like crosshairs, centered on the group. If the crosshairs are off the center of the target, I make a note for a zero adjustment the next day.

Thanks from JEFFJP_N_JJ

Thought this was going to have a bearing on drill-sergeant Hartman's order:

Am not in your league guys but when I was 'young and dumb' in my 20's I shot Hi Power Handgun IHMSA shillouette ... At the State finals shooting my Dan Wesson VH-8 .44 mag my spotter kept telling me high, HIGH on my last string but I was stubborn and kept my hold... 57 out of 60 missing my last three rams high having had to assist the cylinder rotate with the off-hand! Took runner-up State Champ.
Have since learned to listen and heed those that know!

Sometimes once I set my sights I don't want to mess with them. Fact is like Mr Art said turn them. I also like to bass fish a mentor I had at that would tell me while fishing soft plastic, if you feel a bite set the (censored) hook. Followed by he ain't holding the &@ thing is his hand. Same theory here, don't let your mind take over your instinct.

This is why being good at 'calling the shot' is important.

If your shots are not hitting where you wanted them because the front sight was pointing at the resulting POI - well, that's YOUR problem!

You can't make good sight changes unless you KNOW where the sights were aimed when the rifle fires.

Not often I get quoted, especially by a distinguished fella like yourself Art. So go ahead. Isn't funny how clear someone else can see things at times. We all have prejudices at times we like this don't like that and make some decisions based on them. When it comes to components I'm guilty, rather than look at the design peramiters of the weapon, I tend to lean towards my nature. Guess that's why I just ordered a vented plug from Tim at Warbird. I'm not going to over tax a hard working system, that's why I've ignored myself and used 4895. Looking at my fired brass I can tell this system ain't gentle and it wasn't meant to be.
