Snap Shooting at 25 yds

I was shooting PPU ammunition through my Century Arms C308, using the iron sights. I stood with the rifle pointing straight down range, and the muzzle down at about a 45% angle. Then, for every shot, I’d look out at the life-size target, bring the rifle up to my shoulder, get a sight picture, and fire. I fired 10 shots, and I knew I had one flyer when I broke the shot.

This kind of drill really emphasizes the difference in difficulty level of making hits at range with a handgun vs a long gun.
Do you know about the TEXAS State Rifle Association?

I agree. this method is far easier [for me] to make decent hits with a rifle than a handgun at speed.
