I never ruined one all the way, tore one or two, but just do it as cheap insurance.

a couple here that i'm really proud of. my boy, i mean. still just shooting the one gun. he's gently growing into a patient, disciplined shooter. this was only his second outing, but we're taking our time, focusing on some just a few fundamentals each time. i like that he's thinking, waiting for his shot.

for those of you who know about some of my son's challenges and struggles, you might appreciate it just a little more. anyway, the ram:



and, the boar (the little swinging one, behind the one you can more easily see):

You should be proud man.

Do you think that's a lot of optics for starting out?

surely. i wanted him to focus on one thing at a time, and that's the easiest sight picture to explain. so the first things he's learning are base, breathing, and trigger squeeze. later on we can work on sight picture with open sights, and other positions.

the way i'm thinking it, if he knows he's steady enough to hit those targets, then he'll know it's just a matter of sight picture with the open sights before he can do the same with them. but he's confident now in the accuracy of the gun, and his ability to hold it steady, concentrate, and execute.

i think so many shooters are held back because they don't trust the inherent accuracy of their guns. typically, they're more accurate than we can shoot them. if he starts with this confidence, then perhaps he'll be more motivated to fine tune himself to get better results, instead of shrugging his shoulders.

but i do understand why this is considered backwards.

another way of framing it would be... a lot of scope lets you know when your mechanics aren't stable. it's literally magnified, so it seems to be a good way to ensure his early practice shots are sound mechanically. the muscle memory he hones in this setting will carry over easily to open sights, and allow him to better focus on the differing sight picture.
