  • Just Finished Firearms Instructor Course

    Want to thank those who gave advice and suggestions for me in an earlier thread on shooting at the 50 yard line.

    Was a great class. Loved it. Got a TON of training ideas to take back to my department. Yesterday was the first time I had ever shot at "negative" targets. Looking forward to exposing my officers to this stuff! Again, thanks for the help and suggestions one and all.
    Why are there so many babies on O.com? Creole, you and your buddy JPSO Recruit help me out on this one....

      I like pistol shooting from the 50. It's fun because it's something different.

        I'll bite.

        What's a "negative" target?

            I beleive what they are calling negative targets are similar to what we also refer to as a combat cutout target, or just cutout target.

            If this is the same thing, basically you cut out the combat accurate area of a target (high center mass), which is basically about 8"-10" circle or similar. The idea is to keep the rounds inside of the targets cutout and putting rounds through the paper on the target is bad. It is often used to help alleviate guys who are paper watchers. The guys who like to see nice tight groups visible on paper. This invariably slows a shooter down and draws them away from shooting quick combat accurate hits. By not having any holes appear on the target, it tends to speed up a shooters pace of getting rounds on target while retaining what is considered combat accuracy.

              I imagine there's still a gong or something behind the target so you can't throw 10 quick shots into Nantucket and call it 100%.

                Thanks, I like that idea. I might bring that up with our firearms instructors.
