What to focus on for the first shot?

I shoot Steel Challenge matches in the Rimfire Open Pistol class. I use a Ruger Mark IV with a C-More red dot sight and a 12 minute dot so I can pick it up fast.

Starting at a low ready, pointing the gun at a pole in front of the first targets I would keep my eyes on the dot and on the whistle I'd move the sight onto the first target. I changed this week after a great practice session while concentrating on the first target and then bringing the gun to the target and firing as soon as the sight hit the center of the target.

After that I would move my eyes to the next target and push the gun towards it and releasing the shot as the gun was centered. This helped me pick up a great amount of speed and accuracy.

What do you concentrate on and why? The target or the dot?
