    #1. Do you focus hard on the pin

    #2. Focus on the "X" itself

    #3. Use peripherals for both

    #4. Other, Explain please....

    I have been practicing using peripherals but sometimes I struggle w/ my right eye (non dominate) giving me a blurry image, or a slight 2 pin affect. Trying to get past that. Any Ideas?

    I have noticed when I try and focus on the X more than my pin or sights, I shoot better.

    I said X because x marks the spot on the deers heart. I have found when I am struggling it is because I am focusing too much on my pin.

    I answered the pin...I try to focus on the target, but feel like I am looking mostly at the pin. When I try to look at the target, the pin doesn't cooperate :noidea:

    Agree with post #4

    You always want to focus on the X. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Never lose focus of the X. The pin will go where you are focusing. thus the arrow will go where you are focusing if sighted in correctly. When you throw a baseball do you focus on the ball or the place you want the ball to go?

    I see what your saying but throwing a projectile isn't the same thing as firing one.

    I understand the idea of focusing what you want to hit but I tend to get anxious when I focus on either solidly when I am shooting for a perfect score. I don't have the problem when hunting. Those dime sized 12 rings on a skunk or honey bear don't leave much room for error at 30 yards.
