And, sometimes it gets a bit tedious, as a result. But overall I'm pleased with the purchase.
Two things I learned I didn't know before. First, I like the concept of trigger control vs. just trigger squeeze. I think we all use trigger control by nature. But Jim makes it obvious and has a lot of knowledge about competitive firing that's applicable to any other field firing.
Second, I agree with Jim's conclusions about The Big Lie. For those of you who don't know what that means, essentially, the shooter shouldn't rely on just on shot to make a sight adjustment, but rather, three would be the minimum. He bases his idea on the fact that the paths of the bullets in a string of fire will describe a circle if enough are fired. And, that circle will be the result of the paths of the string of bullets taken together will describe a cone.
Furthermore, he states that the bullet POI nearer the center of the cone, by virtue of probability, are more likely than POI nearer the edge of the cone. He even suggests that 60% of the POIs are within one standard deviation and most of the rest within two (no mathematics are presented to support this claim).
But adopting the concept of a cone of fire is needed to understand why he calls adjusting fire on the basis of a single shot The Big Lie. He calls it "chasing the marker" and he suggests that almost invariably it results in an over-adjustment. The idea is that the single POI on which the adjustment is being made could be just about anywhere in the cone, whereas, the shooter is assuming that the POI is dead center of his cone.
Makes sense to me and makes me recall the old adage about adjusting sights, don't make the entire sight adjustment suggested by a single or even several shots. Rather, make half of that adjustment each time you adjust.
But you find yourself as if you were in the middle of a desert, parched for water and your canteen is empty.
DRY DRY reading. If it were not a book, it could be a nightlight.
Some information you have to re-read to make it clear to yourself.
Buy it, but be prepared to cross the Sahara Of Reading.

This book is generally incoherent and random - I can't think of a single thing I read here that will help me be a better shooter.Read more
