Wow, I haven’t seen that one. Truly bizarre — weird consistency and weird magnitude for what is clearly a device error.
I (sort of) believe in the small fails. Sometimes I know I’ve made a sloppy pull, sometimes I think I did it right but the machine disagrees. So it goes; I can’t be a perfect witness to my twitches and lapses.
But occasionally (guessing maybe as much as 5% of the time) I will get a run of low scores which just don’t seem to reflect how I feel about my shooting at the time. What can it be if not me? Seems like the gun could make weird movements and/or the MantisX device could misread the movements.
So I reset the device (hold button until the light flashes red/blue/purple) and let it recalibrate; I jiggle the trigger around; and I jiggle the magazine around (where I mount the device). Usually, thereafter I get scores which feel more like how I am actually shooting.
But I have no idea whether I am actually correcting something mechanical gone amiss, or if I’m just doing a superstition ritual like wearing my lucky sock to the big game — producing a more stable mind/body state. Clearly, @Alces_Americanus has a real thing going on.
Although, I’ve got to say, even with the device in seizure, shooting six points of variation is pretty uneven for Mr. Consistent — must have been unsettled upon hear that first score. Maybe, once you get to a certain level, MantisX introduces stressors to enhance your training for critical incidents.
