Multiple Target Engagement

engaging multiple targetsLet’s face it. Shooting at one target all the time can get a little boring. Its way more enjoyable to shoot at multiple cans, targets, bowling pins, steel plates, or whatever else is fun (and safe) to throw lead at. So how do you properly and quickly engage multiple targets?

Eyes and head first, gun second. Just like when you are driving a car and your back end is sliding out you look into the direction of the slide and then steer into the direction of the slide. This is the same practice that is taught to high performance and defensive driving. Your hands and eyes are connected. Eyes first, hands second. Naturally your hands follow your eyes.

After engaging one target move your eyes to acquire the next one, and then let your hands and gun follow. It will result in a quick target acquisition and accurate shot placement. What you don’t want to do is follow the gun and sights in a swing like motion. When you try to keep everything in line by swinging the gun, sights, and eyes at the same time, you will likely swing through the target and shoot past it. It will also take a lot longer!

Give this exercise a go at the range! You can even do it shooting a silhouette from the body to the head. Or try stapling a few paper plates to a sheet of cardboard. Practice it! Head and eyes first, gun second!
