The Fourth Habit of Highly Effective Shooters – Sight Picture via Center Mass Group
By Chris Sajnog
We’re now going to cover sight picture, which is taking your sights and aiming at a target. As we found with Sight Alignment (The Third Habit of Highly Effective Shooters) – Sight Picture is also not as simple as point and shoot. There are a few things you need to keep in mind if you plan on walking away on a two-way range.
So what is Sight Picture?
Proper sight picture is when you take a PERFECTLY ALIGNED sight and place it on a target. The thing to remember is that sight picture only has to be on the target (anywhere on the target) to score a hit, while sight alignment needs to be perfect or you risk missing the target completely. I guess that makes it hard for me to get you to continue reading this article now that I’ve down-played its importance, but keep reading because like I said in the beginning, there’s more to it than point and shoot…Really!
