Just as any professional basketball player spends decades going over the basic mechanics of shοoting a free throw, a gun owner must repeatedly practice these basic mechanics of firing a shοt.
Each of these steps is simple, but not always easy, and can require the slightest tweaks to enhance performance. Use your practice time to focus on each of these steps. The spent target is not your only indicator of your performance; understanding the mechanics of each step is important in improving your skills, whether recreational, competitive, or to be ready for a defensive scenario.
The process can be broken down to practice very slowly and gradually build your repetitions into faster and faster sequences. Building proper muscle memory is an important part of shοoting well.
