Such performances can and will give us that baseline from which to improve.No, I meant laterally instead of vertically. The vertical could be 15-20", it's can you score inside that 6" lateral window.
I asked the question because at one of the Volusia courses, I set up two threats covering most of a 3rd target just behind the two that left students with a 6" window. The dismal performance of the basics was disheartening to say the least.
I don't concern myself so much with dismal class results as I do with performance after applying the lessons learned from my failures.
