    Default Shooting Help

    Ok, here is the deal. I used to shoot a lot when I was younger then I took a break in shooting, due to the military and college. Now when I draw back and begin to put the pin on the target I have to fight to get the pin down to where I want it and keep it there. What do I need to do to fix this? Thanks for the help.

    Do a search on the topic "target panic". You'll get lots of info. Then, admit that this is your problem. The absolute worse thing you can do is deny it and keep fighting it.

    You should also know that like alcoholism there is no cure for target panic. There are methods you can learn to help control it, but it never really goes away.

    Default My thoughts

    Move up to ten yards and shoot from there untell you get rock solid. Then move back ten yards.

    Dont over think it. Often it a matter of mind.
