Reactive Shooting Science: Calling Shots

 
How do you know where you hit?  If looking at the holes in the target, you are late. 

Reactive Shooting Science ™ is about getting the earliest shot that is accurate. It builds on the old adage that “accuracy is final”.  We believe that… and early accuracy is “early final”. 

Calling Shots is a technique for knowing where you hit at the earliest you could know. 

In this video, Ron Avery (our co-founder), describes calling shots using the metaphor of a smart phone and the picture you take of the sights when you shoot the shot. 

Question?  Do you take the picture when you pull the trigger?  Or when your sights lift off the target? 

Both will work, and with the trigger is the “earliest”… but it can be inaccurate if you do not have a great trigger pull.  Using the sights lifting works 100% of the time, but can be a bit slower, especially if you are shooting fast at multiple targets and really want to drive the eyes to the next target. 

Try both… see what works best for you.   And it’s always good advice to make your trigger pull better!

Grip: A force vector towards the hole you want in the target

Grip: A force vector towards the hole you want in the target

A key purpose of the grip is to consistently return the gun to sight alignment, and preferably to the same point it was aiming when the shot was sent.

In this video, our co-founder Ron Avery describes the concept of a force vector – a vector being a direction and a magnitude of force that you apply through the bones and joints of your forearm.  

Key points:

– it’s a direction
– it’s a force
– it is NOT a position, you can do the above from a variety of wrist angles and elbow positions.

A key mental thought is “direct this force towards the hole I want in the target”.

Success is when the sights automatically return to the sight aligned position, and out to 10 to 15 yards this should be the same hole you hit (if you pulled the trigger correctly).
