I hope I'm posting this to the right forum. Note: I made my main question below bold in case anyone gets tired of reading through all the secondary info in this post. Anyway, I need some advice about setting goals for improving my marksmanship. Since I got my Glock 19 about a month ago, I've shot about a thousand rounds through it. I usually shoot at about 15 yards, using reactive splatter targets with about 0.5 to 1 inch bullseyes. I'd say about 1 out of 10 shots hit bullseye, but all of them remain on the target, which vary from about 4 to 8 inches in diameter. Here's a photo: When I set the targets out to about 25 yards however, my groupings are not as tight and some of them off target. I'm not surprised by this, but I want to improve. My problem is that I'm getting so fixated on hitting bullseye every time that I'm forgetting the fact that I'm hitting a 5-8" target from 25 yards, which ain't bad at all. What's worse, I feel like I'm not having any fun because I'm getting so frustrated with trying to be perfect. So my plan is to stop using targets like the one in the picture and just take a posterboard and draw a circle right in the middle and focus on hitting that. The idea is that I would over time use smaller circles as my accuracy improves. So here's the thing: I want to be a great shot, maybe even start competing someday. What is a reasonably-sized, yet challenging, target to hit at 25 yards? Again, my focus right now is not to get it right in the middle every time, but rather to focus on keeping a nice grouping at 25 yards, while improving over time. Thanks in advance for your advice.
