About 2 weeks ago I had a break through with my hold and release and I was on a 50mm spinner. The white leather with red center spinner that is sold everywhere. For the last couple of weeks I have been hitting it hard and today it finally ripped off the line?! I guess that was my sign for the universe that it was time to push myself harder.
Well the 40mm spinner seems so much smaller?? I really have to focus and be totally dialed in to hit the 40mm spinner. I can still hit it but not as often and I feel more stress as I try to focus? I know I need to relax and enjoy the new challenge...but I had gotten used to hitting the spinner better.
Anyone else have issues with the smaller target...advice to adjust?
I started with a 20mm spinner, then moved up to a 30mm spinner. I only shoot the 30mm now as it allows my aim to really home in. Practising from a greater distance is also better as it makes you more accurate at a closer distance in theory, or at least in my personal experience. Shooting 1 shot at a time is also one way to achieve accuracy quick as it makes you repeat everything over and over which helps with muscle memory.
Vince4242, I practice almost daily on small targets because I use slingshot for target shooting and mainly for hunting (small birds and rabbits) . So when I shoot I want to make sure it is one shot for one clean kill and I don't like to just injure the game. So when I use small targets, I am sure I can hit the small games without injuring the animal.
