So, my wife comes home this evening really PO'ed about work stuff. It's a nice afternoon out so I suggest firing off a few rounds & see if that makes her feel better. The piece of land I've been target practicing on has recently been sold & has been graded off and has two large piece of equipment sitting in the middle of it. Two very large, very expensive, very I-don't-want-to-accidentally-put-holes-in-it pieces of equipment.. So I relocate & set up my targets on a foot path that I have going around my property. The location is such that when we backed off about 10 yards from the targets we were actually about 5-10 feet higher up than what we were shooting at. My wife steps up & fires three rounds. No hits. This is odd. She fires again. No hits. She is not happy. This is not improving her mood at all. She tries another 3 rounds. These hit but very low. I then shoot. Mine all hit but also very low. I fire the rest of the mag & it turns out that I had to adjust my sight picture to get rounds into the bullseye. She also finally adjusted her aim & brought her hits more where they should be. (in both our defense we were not shooting at full torso targets, just a piece of cardboard about 24" high x 48" wide. If it had been full silhouette targets we would have been neutering them ) So my question is this? Is it normal to have to adjust sight picture, when firing from a higher position like that or was it just us? It seems odd that you should have to shoot high because you target is markedly lower than the shooter. I would think that you should maintain your normal sight picture but that certainly wasn't working for us at all. Is the opposite true if you are firing uphill; you should aim low? very confused. btw, I highly recommend trying this out if you have the chance. I thought it would be nothing different than shooting at a target that is on the same "altitude" that you are. It is not the same. And it was humbling. I'm not great shot but I can usually put everything into a center mass kinda grouping. Not today.
