    In a reply to CDR Glock, you said:
    "showing them that if they know their gun and their trajectory, they can nail a man-size target at 100 yards.

    "The farther shots become progressively less likely, so training time is allocated accordingly. "

    1. How would you instruct us, currently in front of our computers, to "zero in" if you will, on our 100 yard trajectory? (intermediate steps, sight picture, etc.)??

    2. I take it those "farther shots" are not a high priority. How much time would you spend on this during that second week?

    Answering your questions in order, Rick:

    1. Can't do it in front of your computer. The ballistic tables showing inches of drop with the given load at varioius distances don't take into account how the particular gun's sights orient with the bore. It HAS to be done live fire, with the given gun and load at the various distances.

    2. Can be done in a couple of hours, including familiarizing the shooter with solid platforms such as the Chapman Roll-Over Prone position.

    best,
    Mas
