targets

Mike
I like to move down to the next row by going past it and then coming back up to the row that I want to shoot and then move accross the row.

I've seen ARA shooters put their target up so that they can work in a horizontal position. This gives them sighter bulls at either end of the row that the are shooting. They also level each target with a small hand level when they put it up.

The results are suprising me. I thought most people moved vertically, especially the people without a windage top.

Horizontally zig-zagged....

I move across the rows horizontally, left to right on the first row, then down to the next row & back right to left, then down & left to right, etc......... I'm lazy, less movement that way.

Gee, now I don't feel so bad about being lazy. That is exactly what I do to minimize the movement.

Hey Paul, I think you should patent that name, "Lazy zig-zag pattern". It has a nice catchy ring to it.

Another thing I've noticed that seems to help my scores some for what it is worth:

I have a Cowan rest with the thrust bearing & speed screw options. While the speed screw has almost enough range to span from the top row to the bottom row, (@ 25 almost - @ 50 plenty) I keep it at about mid-range. I use the mariner wheel & lower the main shaft when changing rows, then just use the speed screw for the fine adjusting. I also always try to come to the final adjustment by moving "up" & "right" by going past it "down" & "left", then coming back.

Like I said - FWIW - it seems to help me; might be worthless info for anyone else...........

I go vertical top-to-bottom, left-to-right I'm shooting over bags so a windage adjustment requires moving the front bag slightly to minimize side pressure on the forend. Then all I have to do is vary the pressure or position slightly of the rear "bunny ear" bag.

My front bag is the "Dog-Gone good" bag made in Gladstone OR.
