I’ll frequently use a single Q-PT target for one or two hundred rounds of practice. But every time I fire my pistol, I know whether I hit my intended target or not. After each drill, I use target pasters to cover up my misses.
In class, we run the targets the same way. Hits stay, misses get pasted.
That’s dramatically different than what I see often at the practice range. Last week I was next to a guy who put up a single reduced silhouette and proceeded to fire eight boxes of ammo out of three different guns at the same target. Halfway through you couldn’t even tell whether his rounds were impacting the target. The whole thing was covered in bullet holes from edge to edge.
If you don’t know where your bullets are landing, you’re just making noise.
Train hard & stay safe! ToddG
