Bullseye shooting is often maligned as having no value for tactical shooters but this is an uninformed view point. Conventional competition is the origin of all marksmanship training, tactical or otherwise. Tactical trainers such as Kyle Lamb and Larry Vickers incorporate bullseye targets for some portions of their training, with Vickers famously quipping about his use of them, “I’m not here to give you what you want. I am here to give you what you need.”
The courses of fire and targets used in conventional bullseye competition are not arbitrary and they continue to offer real value to tactical shooters and trainers today, especially those with the skill and desire to move beyond typical qualification.
Shooting is shooting…
Combat Accuracy as currently taught is an excuse for poor shooting and poor instruction.
