The Gun is Always in the Periphery
I don’t ever look down the barrel when I shoot, nor do any of our students. The gun is always in the periphery and the target is always in our primary vision, so we are always looking at the target behind where the barrel is pointing.
We are not trying to “not see the barrel” like so many shooters out there. It is impossible to visualize “not seeing something.”
The brain cannot do anything if it cannot first visualize it. The better and more detailed the visual picture before you close the gun, the better and more consistent the results will be.
