Range time today!
Mission: Practice sighting with the AR180b and the Eotech 512 holographic sight. Acquiring the target as fast as I can and shooting a hole in it.
Standing offhand, I had an 8" target setup at 25 yards. My goal was simple.... Shoulder the rifle and hit the target in under one second.
Seated at the bench, I had a different plan. At the fifty yard line I had hung five 4"x6" index cards, and I tried to sight on each in turn, one after the other, as fast as I could. In the video it looks like I am blasting away, but actually I am changing targets with every shot. They were placed at odd spots and different levels on the backstop.
The results are pleasing to me.... I hit the cards, as quick as I could, and that was all I asked for. I burned off 160 rounds practicing this... and it went way too fast.
On the other hand, I drove home with a smile on my face.
