born in the wrong century
It's called single-plane sighting. You focus on the target, not the dot, superimpose the dot on what you want to hit and pull the trigger. During rapid fire stages I called it 'following the bouncing ball'.
That sounds like magic.
Up until 45 years old I could manage well with my handguns.
52 now and things have degraded with the visual sharpness.
Shooting at 25yd targets with irons is a crapshoot....even though my grip is more solid now than ten years ago.
I’m eager to try the red dot and see....understanding that it’s not an immediate swap but more of a transition that will require shooting, drawing, etc over a few thousand rounds/reps.
Looking forward to it.
