    Dot Torture

    Hit the range yesterday with a friend. He brought some dot torture targets so that became the mission of the day.
    Pretty good drill to run if you're starting to feel like you're king shit.

    I was punching the center out of a standard target at 10 yards with just a few outside. All a pie plate at center mass though, essentially.
    That looks great on a silhouette.

    Send a few little 2" circles out to 7 yards and it humbles you.

    On a side note, I dipped into my case of reman 9mm from Freedom Munitions. Recoil and muzzle flash was all over the place. Very inconstant ammo. Not a big deal to training ammo but it was very apparent today.

    Same experience with Freedom's handgun ammo. I got some .308 that was above average for consistency and accuracy for bulk reloads then had some of the worst .45 ammo I've ever shot from them. Haven't ordered since that mess.

    Yes it does. There's no hiding from poor trigger control, and I proved it.

    Oh man. I'm no pro but I can hit center mass on a silhouette no problem. But I agree it's a humbling experience when you throw this up. I believe the paper says put it at 3 yards or something crazy close so naturally I put it out to 5 yards thinking I was hot stuff. Yeah I quickly brought it back in to 3...and still did poorly.
