    Regarding the long gun; cold bore.

    Not a doubt in my mind regarding the handgun it is a cold shooter.


    Astute observation Mike. I'm proud of you.


    This was sent to me via PM. Not sure why, but it seems obvious the sender would rather not be 'outed' so I can't really attribute it. But none the less . . it learnt me somethin.

    BowHunter clarified the practical need for a logbook, and I have built one - though I have not been as meticulous as I should have been about noting data.

    Anyway . . . historically I have all but ignored cold bore shots. I put the dot on the sheet for that first shot, but that has been about it.

    I will admit; sometimes I'm just an old fashioned dumbass. For someone who strives to think things through . . . I've sure screwed the pooch on this one.


    Anyway, highly recommend that anyone really interested in making that first shot count read this. Then do as I have done and commit to doing just that:

    I can vouch for that. TallyFSD and I printed out several things from there and had Kinko's bind it for like $4 i think.

    Cool.

    And if you kindly insist to help me by making one for me, I'll buy dinner (take whoever with you) after C4 - Japanese.

    If the simulator is anything like the one at Pat Thomas, it should be fun.

    On the note of 'cold shooter', I always practice drawing and aiming my (unloaded) service weapon 10 times or so before going on shift. Sometimes dry fire with a snap cap as well. Getting out of the holster smoothly is the most important thing for me.

    Good read. Anyone interested in refining they're shooting skills needs to keep detailed logs on not only cold bore shots but also follow up shots. As the barrel heats up it tends to walk,up,down,left,right. Every barrel is different even from the same manufacturer. I guess the bottom line is know your weapon .
