Hi to you All, This is a request or question to all the top Shooters out there. What technics do you use to practice to,
1. Improve your hold on your target
2. Reduce your wobble.
3. Trigger control, when to start your pull on the trigger
4. Reduce flinching
Or any other advise on technic , practice drills or practice exercises for Air. Rimfire & centre fire.
A lot of shooter have difficulty with distances to a silhouette range to practice, so some sugestions for home practice would be most appreciated as well.
I am shore there is a wealth of styles and information that you could share with the novice or lower graded competitors like myself.
Many thanks to all.

Technics, Drills and Exercises used for pra

I'm hardly a top shooter but I do have some experience practicing. Whatever drills you choose, practice (1) specific skills (2) regularly and frequently with (3) a very attentive approach so that you focus on learning something rather than just putting in the time. Flinching is just failure to follow through, one of the most basic and necessary skills. Dryfiring is a practice discipline that can't be replaced by airgun or anything else. Visualization is a required mental training that few of us work at hard enough.
As for specific drills, I too would like to hear what people have found helpful.

For Practice

Being just a pup myself, when a big dog barks I'll give a listen. A few years ago at Raton, Lones Wigger was set up beside of us folks from the Phoenix area, just about every body that would ask him for any advise about shooting, he would tell them the same thing (myself included), to take an index card draw a dot on it and set it up about 20 yards away and practice dry firing on it for approx. 20 minutes per day. My own take on it that dry firing is pretty darn boring, but if you want to get better you have to do something!
