The Have you been shooting longer than I've been alive? thread got me to thinking on this: About 30% of the folks on THR have 41+ years of shooting experience. In that collected experience there is a wealth of wisdom locked up in all those collective brain cells. What would be the 1 or 2 bits of wisdom that you would want to make darn sure were passed on to the many younger (in experience) members and shooters that have recently joined? I'll start with these. They may be very simple concepts, but it is these things that are the foundation for all the rest and are often overlooked or taken for granted. 1. In marksmanship, never forget the basics: stance, trigger control, sight alignment. Upon this foundation accuracy is built. 2. Never forget nor belittle your God-given rights. Not all of them are in the Bill of Rights.
