  • Marksmanship next?

    Hi Folks,

    I've written two threads one on wind and the other on the advantages of dry practice. I'd like to keep writing threads that will hopefully help those that can't make it here for training and help those who have been here as a refresher.


    I was thinking this next thread I would write about basic marksmanship. So many times we all get caught up in mil ranging, wind calling and all the other aspects of tactical long range shooting we forget about the foundation ....our marksmanship. With good basic marksmanship skills you are just about guaranteed repeatable accuracy on your long range targets.


    Please let me know here on this thread if you'd be interested.


    Thanks, flea

        Hey Flea,
        I read the dry practice and started it. Went the other day and shot a 100 yards. That is the longest range I have. Still shot placement was better due to dry firing.
        Haven't read the wind thread. It's where I need the most help. You put it up, and I will read it and try to practice it.

                          I agree, and think that would be a great idea!!

                          I would really like to see you write pointers on both basic marksmanship AND getting the rifle fitted to the new shooter. A lot of shooters fight improper fit, and thus have to push their way uphill through an excessively steep learning curve when it comes to mastering the marksmanship basics.

                              That is an excellent suggestion and a very true observation. I fought that same thing, Vern fixed it my first trip to CVT.
