Improve Shooting Skills With Your Rifle
This basic technique is one that I teach beginners and intermediate shooting sports enthusiasts. It will work with any rifle and with any skill level.
1. Balance your front forearm, it should be COMPLETELY straight up and down, this is of course so that your rifle will "settle naturally" with gravity...
2. The further your head is away from your rear sight,
the more accurate your shot will be at greater distances...
hard to do with M-16 "peep sights", but you will see what I mean!
3. As you are looking down your sights, take two to three breaths, at about the last part of your exhale of the second (or third) breath, hold that last quarter breath when it is comfortable....
(notice how your sights stay perfectly aligned for about 3-4 seconds, if you are perfectly still...)
4. Remember that every time your heart pumps,
your pulse causes your body to flex ever so slightly,
so getting comfortably set in whatever position you are in is CRUCIAL!
Give yourself enough time in position for your heart rate
to slow to its average beats-per-minute cycle.
