If you're going to use the scoring rings as a glorified bullseye target, that's fine. But the scoring rings on a B27 have little to do with the spots you'd want to hit on a bad guy. The high 8 or 9 would be, anatomically, a much better target.I trained my wife with much smaller 18x24” B style targets at distances longer than prescribed to prep for her class. She was getting very worried about how well she would do when she had to fire for qual because she had a lot of misses early on with 12x18 targets at 15yds. I kept reminding her that the B27 was huge and the distances wouldn’t likely be as far.
The week before her class I put up the B27 target (still longer distance though) and her confidence soared. We ran through the course 3 times with nothing missing the black. I swear she was messing with me the last 5yd string when she got her first 4 in the 10 and X then the 5th dropped to Mr. B’s man parts.
The following week she got 25/25. Just waiting for her approval and card now.
I’m fine with B27 targets being used for the test but not so much for training unless maybe you actually score with the rings to track progress. They are bigger than the B Mod we used for 500yd slow fire in the military FFS
If anyone needs some targets to prep in the Finksburg area, pm me. I have like 90 left

Haha, she didn’t need his “favor”. My wife is mostly a rifle shooter like myself, but she’s pretty good with a handgun too.
"Point/instinct shooting" is an industry term of making shots without "aiming". Just saying. Call it what you want. That doesn't mean you neglect grip and trigger control.What? Can people not think differently? Should we not discuss ideas or thoughts on shooting?
How would they practice to get a passing score if they have no business having a firearm in thier hand?Did my Wear & Carry qualifying today. Had hoped to freshen up a bit prior to going, but it wasn't to be. So I haven't shot anything since pre-covid. I used the brand new G-19 that I won a month and a half ago.
What sucked is me being right handed and my right elbow being inflamed with tendonitis and a bone spur. I got 25/25, and feel if someone can't get a passing score (at least), then they have no business having a firearm in their hand.
