Remembering how to shoot

Since I went overseas I haven't shot (like I shoot in HP) for over a year. I finally got to shoot a match last weekend and disapointed myself a little with a mid-Expert score...but I took notes of all the things I didn't do right and tried to work them out over the last week. Sunday I shot another match and this time shot a 481 at a 500 point match. Much better. I know it's still in me, and it can be improved upon a lot...just gotta keep knocking off the rust. Ya'll wish me luck. ;)

I know the feeling, I just recently got back from a year overseas and my skills suffered. It comes back quickly but it sucks having to work up to where you were when you left.

It's like riding a bicycle, Steve, I'm sure you'll back up to form in no time.

Hold hard, Xs and 10s...

competitve shooting, Service rifle in particular, is a pershiable skill. It requires constant work to keep the edge on. Even then it is not always so easy. I tend to go thru little slumps from time to time that can drive me crazy. The fact is though that 95% is all mental, and the rest is physical conditioning and muscle memory.
