I'm a Both eyes open shooter and I sight only with the front site when I'm practicing "Real World" shooting on a man target at 20 ft.

Now, If I'm out at my buddy's with the shotgun and the AK,...THAT's fun shootin.  How many people Are NOT Both eyes open shooters?

Me.

I take pictures of my targets and post them.  Does that make me the Social Media Guy?

Not one to talk much about it.  Did take the son in law out once to try his guns.  He was raised in the woods hunting and shooting and was very surprised when he was out shot.  :)

Gabby people during cease fire are usually a welcome addition to a range session.  But, people that try to talk to me while I am trying to shoot will experience a cold shoulder as I demonstrate my powers of concentration.

And people that want to try my guns get treated as if they are invisible from then on out.

One time at the range there was a group of young professionals clustered around whichever one of them was firing their rent a gun.  One of them was squatting down right were my Glock 20 likes to throw its brass.  I told him that he might want to move for that reason and he looked at me like, "What a stupid old man."  **** him, I just started putting rounds down range and when I went to look for my brass, he was gone and the brass had obviously been deflected from its normal trajectory.  Oh well.  Newbies who won't listen suck.

Indoor range?  Maybe once every 10 years.  I shoot every Saturday, in competition, outside.  I'm none of those guys.

Grumpy reloader and ballistics nut, all the way at the end of the range. Comes first, leaves last, didn't say a word.

the type that can do all of that and not be asked to leave because i don`t shoot in indoor ranges much anymore.

99% of indoor ranges ban any practical shooting Techniques.

 

last indoor range i was in had a sign on the wall in the Shop that said.

No Draw shooting.

No Rapid Fire.

No Tac-Reloads.

No Cross Lane Shooting.

they literally had yellow boxes painted on the floor that you had to stay in.

Range was Empty, but i couldn't go in because i wasn't wearing eye and ear Pro.

 

since i moved and the cost and scarcity of Ammo i haven't done much shooting at all though.

I'm both eyes open, rifle or pistol.  My mind closes off the eye that ain't "focusin".

True.  Most "Ranges" now days, are just to check out a pistol.  No serious "training" can be done there.

I am the guy who sets up to shoot his 1911 and five minutes later a retiree sets up next to him with to test-fire five rifles he just had fitted with muzzle brakes, 4 of which are belted magnums. This is of course is at a range with a corregated tin roof over the firing line. I pack up and GTFO after ten rounds from the first muzzlebraked  rifle, a .300 H&H Magnum.

That happened to me once in PHX, at Ben Avery. The concussion from that freaking rifle was like getting hit with a padded baseball bat.

Anyway, I am the kind of shooter who prefers few or no other shooters in the immediate area when he shoots.

This thread got me thinking. I usually shoot in my back yard, or pretty close to it. I'm usually by myself. Now when I shoot I'll be wondering what type of shooter I am. Probably the shooter that doesn't shoot often enough. Need to work on that.

I once hit a chemlight stick on a target berm 600 meters downrange with the first burst of an M-60 at night. True story. It was a night shoot for M-60 gunners. There were target berms with a cluster of hinged silhouette targets on each, at ranges from 400 meters to 1,000 meters, on each firing lane. Each berm had a chemlight staked to it, to mark it. I hit the chemlight on the 600 berm with the first burst, which splattered the glowing green crap up onto the targets, before I adjusted a little and got the targets. It was very cool looking. It looked like Predator blood.
