    shooting steel plates!!

    guys I starting shooting steel plates and having lots of fun with it, I was wondering if any of you guys have any tips with getting on the next target fast. or just shooting steel in general.

    Bro with practice you will know if sweeping left to right or right to left works better for you. The choice is yours. You can shoot them in any order as long as the stop plate is last. Keep your eyes just ahead of your sights when transitioning from plate to plate and if you have XS Big Dot sights they will help you acuisition the next target very quickly. They are superb combat sights. When you first start out remember the old addage "slow is smooth and smooth is fast". You will be bangin' em down quick in no time. Have fun bro. I'm looking to shoot steel now that I'm settled in NV. It's great practice for other type competitions (IDPA, USPSA, IPSC etc)

    thanks for the tips, I think that's what I do wrong I try to go to fast and my skill level is not there yet, I need to take it slow and speed will come.

    Getting on the next target fast is a matter of practice, practice, practice. Also, look at the Trijicon HD sights. They are better than the XS Big Dots, IMO. Watch video's from the experts.
