    We can open and conceal carry in bars, BTW. The rule is that if you are, you cannot be drinking. Ain't had no problems.

    1987? Ok

    My dad started me at a very early age. He would make me shoot with guys who were faster and accurate while also being more consistent. Anybody can turn in a good lucky run, but the folk who do so consistently have mastered the shooting fundamentals and are executing them at a higher level. When confronted with other variables (shoot-no shoot, malfunctions, multiple threats), the greater amount of your skills and actions that you can delegate to muscle memory, the more fluid you will be

    Quick q - Some random dude is having good hits, moving good and everything great. Both eyes open. And then he starts to noticed something. The front sight is sharp and clear and so is the target. At that point, he realizes his left eye is focused on the target and his right eye is focused on the front sight.

    It wasn't something he was trying to do or did consciously, Possible to focus the eyes independently?

    How to get this guy back on the right track?

    That's fine, but when we talk about the rights and liberties of the individual, I think we need to tread carefully and think things through logically. In all the Universities which currently allow guns on campus, there have been no problems. The simple fact is that the vast majority of students aren't going to carry a weapon anyway (well nothing beyond a knife). It's really a null factor, and as such I don't see the need to use government force against our free exercise of rights.

    Recently, the Board of Directors at CSU (Colorado State University) wanted to redesignate CSU so that they could ban guns. There was a HUGE outcry by the student populace at large against the move and eventually the BoD dropped the plan and left the University conceal carry legal.

    Apparently, he was focusing not on the target or the sight but on air 3/4 of the way to the target. This focus will result it a fairly crisp sight and target.

    So, we started him at 5, 10 and 15 yards. Line up his sights and target with both eyes open. The focus is on the sight. One target and one sight.

    Made him back up to 25 and further. Agian, line up the sight and target with both eyes open. Focus is on the sight. He will see 2 targets. This has to do with ocular deviation. We got him to change his focus to a imaginary point 1/2 to 3/4 of the way to the target....a fairly crisp sight and one target.

    This technique can be used at any distance. It is fast and effective with practice.
