Focus on Front Sight

 Focus is on the…   Front Sight
            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
Don’t “Pull” the trigger!!!

Gradually increasing pressure until the
   mechanism releases

SURPRISE yourself when the gun shoots
    Follow Through
   Bring the gun back on target

   Ready for a second or third shot

   Keep both eyes open
