One of the most common commands you’ll hear your firearms instructor tell you when you’re missing the mark is, “Front Sight Focus!” This was drilled into me from the first day I started training to be a Navy SEAL and what I passed on to my students as a sniper instructor.
The problem is that no one teaches you how to actual focus on the front sight for it to be effective. This leaves many hard working students of the gun confused as to why they are still missing when they are focusing on the front sight. Or so they think…
In reality what most people do is look and the front sight, not actually focus on it. So I came up with a few visual illusions to help illustrate not just how to focus on the front sight, but will also show you how focusing works to help you hit your target every time.
I created a SlideShare last week for my newsletter subscribers to show them how it works and it was so well received I thought I’d turn it into a video and add some personal commentary to walk you though the process.
If you follow the simple directions in this video you will instantly start hitting the center of your target and literally never look at shooting the same way again.
