    I’ve been spending a lot of time shooting my rifle recently. However, my pistol (Sig P229 with XS Big Dot sights) finally got a little love yesterday.

    I started at 3 – 4 yds. The red silhouette (hostage) on the target is 12.25†wide by 16†tall; the black silhouettes (bad guys) are only 2.25†wide on either side. I consider it a 2/3-size target. I was standing and shooting off-hand, with a two-handed grip. It took me three shots each before I finally hit the bad guys. And yeah, I hit the hostage once, and grazed him with a second shot, before hitting the bad guy on the right.

    On my second attempt, I got the bad guy on the left with my first shot. However, I still hit the hostage twice before finally hitting the bad guy on the right. On my third attempt, I got both bad guys with one shot each.

    Next, I moved the target out to about 7 -8 yds. It took me three shots to hit the bad guy on the left, but I got the bad guy on the left with only one shot.

    And then, I moved the target out to 15 yds. This time I was actually aiming at the red silhouette.
