In die vorige twee artikels het ons gekyk na ’n proses om die akkuraatheid van jou wapen te bepaal. Ons het die veranderlikes bespreek wat ’n effek op jou akkuraatheid kan hê en ook die gebruik van spoed as ’n aanduiding van akkuraatheid bespreek. Saam met die bespreking van spoed het ek ses verskillende spoedtoetse geskiet om te bepaal watter effek konstante spoed op ’n groepering het.
