Slow Posting Ahead... But This Is Interesting...

Trying to get on my practice, trying to move a club to a new venue, and take care of some stuff around the house - Thank god summer is here!!

So Kozy has had a lot of questions about shot calling... So he asks Steve Anderson (author of the dryfire book - which are pretty great...). Interesting advice. Take a listen to the podcast...

I'm not sure that I agree about prepping before you see the sights again - but I'm not an open shooter - I do know that this is what leads to sloppy hits (and Krupa used to demonstrate this in his classes) with iron sights as the shooter can prep the gun before the sights return. That whole, "The hand is quicker than the eye...", thing.

I do agree with Anderson regarding the fact that question was phrase a bit wrong ...
"... my interpretation of this is the ability to know where the shot will hit on a given target with just what the sight picture looks like, not seeing the shot on the target."
Shot calling is the ability is know, from how the sights react to know if the shot was true or not: if the sights lift fairly vertically, then you're probably made an acceptable shot. If they sights lift crooked, you probably missed because you influenced the gun adversely while taking the shot...
