Re: Sight picture for Heinie sights

Do most shooters try to put whatever sight picture they prefer in place and hold it "rock steady?" Or do most people sweep the sights through the position and try to pull the trigger as they cross the desired point?
Not sure i understand this...wonder that now also..Good post
have to wait and see what the Guru's have to say ;)

Re: Sight picture for Heinie sights

Just point it and shoot, two to the whole mag. Shots aren't great but within a 4" circle at 10 yards.
I remember reading somewhere that, when you are shooting,where you look is where you will naturally point..not sure if it is correct,but i have done that before,and when i am relaxed,it works for me..only for very close shots though..in a bad situation,have no idea how that works..hopefully i will never find out....
Seems like, when i shoot,the more i think about it,the worse i shoot :rolleyes:..probally a bad habit i picked up when i was younger.. Duuno

what do you guys mean by sweeping... :???: :)
is that the same as shooting at a moving target?

Also ...what is a Heinie Sight...i think i hijacked this post....
is this post about sight pictures or gun sights...sorry if this went the wrong direction

Re: Sight picture for Heinie sights

He said they teach a super fast shot before you actually line up (onto a sidewalk if handy, to stir up concrete shrapnel), then a couple point shots to center-of-mass, then a sighted head shot. Bam, bam, bam, bam in quick succession.
Oh My Gosh.. :eek:
Hope i never have to do that :D..LOL..
Bet that would work better with a auto, a revolver probally would not work as easy...DUUNNO :)

They are also making 3 dot
...

i had those one my 1911, never shot that well with them...guess i have always shot sites you have to hold a 6:00..seems like i was always fighting with how to shoot with them..that is one of the reasons i got rid of it(although now i know it was stupid) :bang:
figured if i could not hit anything with it,might as well get something different(live and learn..and i was young and dumb) :D

OMG..can you see me shooting with only a dot in the front and back..after reading my post :D :D...LOL

oh boy I'm gonna add 4 more feet to the top of the berm.
lol... :D

[Not sure about that.  He carried a Chief Special on the range.  Back when he was doing the counter-I thing there weren't that many autos around.  Our force was all revolver (early 70's).  There was a reason several snubs were called "CIA."...........Yep that carried .38's and were about the first to carry what we call +P's now....../quote]


Nice.... ;D ;D 8)
thanks for the history lesson...lol ;)

K..now i retract my previous statement about revolvers :)
