1.   Poke a small hole in a piece of paper
2.   Hold paper up with both hands with
     arms fully extended.
3.   View a object/target through the hole.
4.   Close one of your eyes,
5.   If what you are looking at disappears,
     the other eye is dominate, if it is still
     there then that eye is dominate.

Shooting Fundamentals
     3. Sight Alignment

                 Target, front sight
                  and rear sight

                 “Six o’clock” hold,
                  or “center of mass”
Shooting Fundamentals
         3. Sight Alignment

 Focus is on the…   front sight
  Shooting Fundamentals
               4. Breath Control

Body movement affects the shot
  - So… quiet yourself

Breathing requires muscle movement
  - So… shoot between breaths

Breathe out part way, hold, and shoot
Don’t hold your breath too long or muscle tremors
  will create movement and disrupt the shot
Shooting Fundamentals
         5. Trigger Squeeze/Press

 Don’t “Pull” the trigger
 “SQUEEZE” the trigger
 “PRESS” the trigger
 Gradually increasing pressure until the
    mechanism releases

 SURPRISE yourself when the gun shoots
    Shooting Fundamentals
           6. Follow Through

   Bring the gun back on target

   Ready for a second or third shot

   Keep your eyes open
