I just shot a .22 rifle, offhand (unsupported), at 25 yards and got a 5" group. That's bigger than I expected. Well, one flyer made it a 5" group. The other 9 shots were more like the size of a tennis ball. Still, an 8 minute-of-angle group would be only 2" at 25 yds, and I wanted to do something closer to that size. So I moved back to 100 yards, cranked up the sights (simple open sights on an old .22 plinker), got into the modified sitting position (fat man can only put one elbow on one knee), and shot a 14" group. Yeah, fourteen inches. The size of a large pizza. That was my 100 yard group, sitting. Now, I only traded-into this rifle a couple of years ago and only shot it once, about 30 rounds worth, the week I got it back in 2014. Today was the second time shooting it, ever. But... I don't recall the gun having any accuracy problems the first time I shot it. Today things just went terribly wrong at 100 yards. Should I blame the outdoor target being covered with shadows, giving it a camoflauge pattern of gray on the white paper? Could I blame the bright sunlight reflecting in my eyes of the shiny oiled blued-steel sights? I should have had a candle with me and smoked 'em with some soot. The glint of the sun made precise aiming very difficult. BOTTOM LINE: I NEED MORE PRACTICE WITH .22 RIFLES, OPEN SIGHTS, AT 50 feet to 100 yards. 25 yards is a good distance. Most indoor ranges are that long. Who wants to form a little "GPDO league" and do monthly shoots with .22 rifles and improve our scores through this regular practice, and comparing notes as to what works and what does not?
