How to shoot well — 7 Comments

  1. Just to clarify, is dope something that helps you acquire your target, or the wind?

  2. The target. “Dope” is how many clicks up on your rear sight for a specific yardage.

  3. Umm, so once I was at a shooting range and hit a bullseye. On the target NEXT to mine. Ahem.

  4. Hahahahahahahaha!
    Wordnerd, In 1998, at a long range match, at MCB Quantico, Va. I shot the entire match on a target 17 points to my right. Needless to say I scored a ZERO!!!!!!

  5. “He said, Just because you have a $1500.00 rifle doesn’t mean you can shoot well. It means you suck with a $1500.00 rifle. Go practice.”” Do I know this bloke? A funny and illuminating post, Brian. Kudos to you, sir! 🙂 By the way, you’ve been tagged, sucker!

  6. That all sounds like you take the sport very seriously Brian – like anything, only worth doing if you’re going to do it properly… Do you shoot at a military range? Or are the MPs just a name for the guys in charge?

    Question: I have whats been described as ‘gunners eye’ which basically mean that I can’t close my left eye leaving the right one open – duuno why – can do the reverse – ie can’t aim properly… does mean I’ll never be able to take out a long range target??? I’ve always assumed that I’d be rubbish at shooting for this reason.
