    I have never really liked shooting at night, but I shoot the winter league at my club. They shoot wed/thurs nights and sundays. I end up shooting at night most of the time. Heres my problem. The first round I tend to do just fine, shoot my average. I keep my glasses on stay around the field/simular lighting ect ect. As the time goes by about 15 min between rounds I find it harder to pick up the targets, the angles turn into streaks which I just cant read that well. I would think that my eyes would adjust to the lighting better the more I stay? This is just not the case. I tend to shoot my first round within 10min of getting to the range. Any tips or ideas?

    I too shoot bad at nite, I think one of the problems is depth perception,as for the streak of the target i would try to find a different hold point. good luck ..

    Yeah, Bert. I just might give it up. Unless the club gets some new lights and that helps. No more winter league for me.
