Took a trip to the range today with SWMBO and although fun was had, I was not happy with my marksmanship and I have nobody to blame but me.
When I saw my groups were not as tight as they should be, I went back to the basics with special attention to the front sight acquisition and there is where I found the issue: I could not see but a blur. I had to move head up and down trying to get an angle where my glasses could provide me with a better image and it was not easy.
Of course it was in the middle of it that I remembered a voice mail left by my eye doctor’s office last week saying hi and telling me that I haven’t been over to visit them in over two years. I might be in need of a new prescription, you think?
At the range, lack of a proper front sight picture is an annoyance. Out there in real life is the difference between hitting the intended target where it will make him stop his misdeed and not stopping him or miss altogether.
Time to make an appointment.
