Accuracy: Slot Machine Mentality

Some shooters have the slot machine mentality towards matches or even shooting in general.  They throw their bullets down range and have an expectation of a jackpot.  Maybe next time they’ll shoot well.

I think sometimes there is an element of luck like clipping a no shoot. But that is different from protecting one’s ego from consistent less than desired performance.

This concept of luck is also at work when people rush.  “Turning on the gas” or rushing breeds cutting corners like not actually aiming the gun.  It is accuracy by luck, a ready fire aim approach or “shooting by Braille”.

I’d rather save my ammo and use my time wisely rather spray and pray.
