Tried a Vegas tonight, Had it going on but just couldn't hang in there... still not sure what caused the 3 wild ones. At least I got one on each
Not entirely sure I even scored it correctly

With Vegas scoring that a 296....the X ring is a 10 as is the ring around it. The rest of the yellow is a 9. The following rings are 8, 7, 6 etc

ANd thanks again for the peep size tip...sure seemed to tighten them up.
Now, I gotta try some clarifiers to hopefully offset some blur. I pretty much shoot at a white or yellow blob.

Not a problem my man. Over time I have found that most guys use a pretty big peep until they learn otherwise simply because most of us come from a hunting background and a bigger peep is better for letting in more light early and late in the day. But a smaller peep will usually tighten things up from a target standpoint.
as for comparing your target to GRIVs....ya gotta crawl before you walk. You can't go comparing yourself to one of the best in the country But then it's a good thing I didn't take and post the pics from my target yesterday either

your pretty much spot on...pun intended...with that statement.
That's why people always get a chuckle at the "backyard" archers talking about groups and their ability.
But your target actually doesn't look that bad....take away the ones that are out...which are obviously just "bad shots" since they are actually pretty far out in comparison to the rest of your shots....if that was my target I would give my sight a few clicks to the left and your going to be more in the middle.

Put up a 299/39 in my first legit, TFAA sanctioned tourney today in Ft Worth.
Just one hair shy of 300 bobbed on a shot and caught a low 4.
I was kinda surprised by the final X count, just felt like I was picking up more than that along the way, but I'm pleased with the way the groups are starting to close up.

Nothing to worry about....when you go to a "bigger" shoot or any shoot for that matter shooting right around what you shoot in practice is good. If your 1st 300 was a 41...shooting 39Xs is right there really. Figure if you make a good shot on the one point you dropped and that's 40Xs.
Focus on shooting Xs....and not only will your 300s become easy your X count will climb. A 3.5 X avg gets you to 42Xs for the round....4 gets you to 48...
but remember....ya gotta crawl before ya walk

Wondering what is your opinion on using a fall-away rest for indoor vs something else, like a lizard tongue or a BoDoodle Pro 500.
I've been using a fall away(TT), seems effective enough, but wondering if I'd gain anything from swapping?

any of them will work....use what you like and have confidence in. I just find a blade rest to be more forgiving though and easier to fine tune. But I do hunt with a drop away...although I have hunted with a Pro Tuner before and would have NO PROBLEM doing it again.
I hunted with the bow I shot field with last summer. All I did was change rest....it shot great but it didn't pound like it did with the blade on there. Even when I was shooting my field arrows from it....like I said to me a drop away isn't as forgiving as a blade rest. When you set a blade rest up correctly the blade actually will flex out of the way of the back of the shaft somewhat.
