The target on the left/top was my first, the right/bottom my second (after being told not to squint).

Wish I'd done that when I was an undergrad :(
Just found out yesterday that Princeton University has a rifle club, in a building called "The Armory." This in a town which is about as anti as any in the country.

Oh, I thought you "had to use a gun", as in self defense. Good to hear that's not the case. Well, mail your local politician and you'll hopefully be able to do that alot more.

Good shooting, iapetus!
Your second target was really the better as most of the shots were in a small group. Grouping is what matters not where on the target they are, initialy.
To help with not sqinting with your off eye (both should be open and relaxed) put a piece of translucent tape on you shooting glasses over the center of the off eye. That will fuzz the image forceing you to use your dominant eye.
Breath control and sque-e-e-e-ze.

This sounds very much like a copy of an old U.S. Army ROTC range.
Next time, ask them about proper use of shooting jacket, and rifle sling.
I never got up to speed on that, but that's what this is all about.
