“It’s supposed to be fun and if you happen to knock a few down as well........all the better”
Slow down.... there's no prize for shooting quickly!
I wish I'd remember that at the peg though!
"Practice how you shoot and shoot how you practice". Don't spend all your time shooting indoors if your main objective is to shoot outdoors; don't practice on paper if you want to shoot tin chickens or real rabbits; above all don't keep 'special' equipment for competitions or hunts - always shoot the same kit until you know it backwards etc, etc....
The legend that is @MickyFinn showing me the wink trick a few years back.
(No that's not a euphemism)
Always hold the break barrel/underlever/sidelever when loading spring rifles
If you miss a target and you get angry about it. I was told 'leave it with the target don't take to the next one'.
And if you have waited too long holding your breath to take the shot, and the wobbles are starting to get going well, stop, take a break, and start again.
And on that note, I need to stop smoking to improve my breath hold...
If you are unsteady on a shot then the target is unlikely to fall. If it does fall then you were lucky and did not learn about the wind. Adjust your body position (and maybe hamster or butt hook) until you are steady.
Don't listen to anyone else when shooting make your own judgement on each target and shoot it for your own distance and windage. Listen to the person before who give it 2mil dots left because the Sun was in the east west your never learn your own mistakes.
advice i was given
look, go and put ya gun back in the vehicle, when you get home advertise it because your shite at shooting
it was off hillier so i just ignored it lol
Erm, Wink trick?
Into photography too, I guess I am a lost cause!
Pull string before shooting target we all have shot wrong target and i gave it this and it went there leave them at home
Yes I learnt this the hard way too!
Don't eat yellow snow.
Best advice I was ever given was not to waste money on blingy gear but spend on ammo and range time.
Of course like all good advice I ignored as I thought I knew better...
Shoot dots not targets.
Get out on windy days and shoot. You'll learn more
Oh and listen to good advice when it's given. Doh.
........... Errrmmm Wink Trick...... Im also in the dark.
But a fantastic thread, well done OP
