The difference when you use good shooting habits VS not

ah had a good day with my Lee Enfield.Actually I was amazed at my second group but I wanted to show you 2 targets.

This was the first rifle I shot today,shot 2 5-shot slowfire groups.Showing the first group it is spread out because I wasn't "in the groove" and didn't concentrate and focus properly.

After seeing the first group and knowing I didn't "feel right" when I did it I went for the 2nd volley only this time I really concentrated on front sight focus,squeezing the trigger to where it was a surprise sorta when it went off and calmed down by breathing.


A real difference huh?It could be the rifle shoots better after warmed up a little also.I always try to focus on the front sight but with the Enfield skinny front post when you do it really lines up well with a black circle.


After shooting for many years I still seem to have to force myself to use good habits,you would think that it should just come natural.Do you have to constantly remind yourself on shooting habits or does it come more naturally to you?

That's pretty doggone good for 100 yards and open sights.
Good shooting habits do pay off.

Nice group. :)

Nice shooting LK. :cool: Aren't those Enfield sights great?

With a scoped rifle it's hard to forget the basics because the crosshairs will make gross errors very apparent. With irons I'd say it's more about procedures. You could be unsteady or misaligned and not notice it with irons. You just have to know the techniques and have faith that they will make your shooting better.

Some days it's automatic to me and other days I totally forget how to shoot.
