    Apart from huge quivering piles of training? :D

    For rifles, a shooting sling (I'd say Ching Sling, but I like the 1907-pattern ones better for long-range shooting. Either will work.)

    For pistols, night sights.

    Sams knows.

    Everything else is merely an enhancement over what works.

    I'd go with Sam's selection, but add the word "good".

    Practice. You are the weapon, everything else is supplemental.

    I am going to repeat what a lot of other people have said. Practice and a positive attitude. Although good ammo would be a good thing to have too.

    Preach' didn't really specify the scenario - I kinda took it to be more "street tactics."

    Situational awareness has to be numeral uno.

    Being aware of your surroundings has to be at the top for what ails you.

    If you don't know what's happening (to you), you can't react correctly.

    Although part of - training then kicks in. & better yet than "dealing with it," many situations can be offset (for lack of a better current thought process) by a thorough understanding of what is happening to you & how to defuse it.

    Trading a couple quick verbal barbs, accepting an "insult" & yup, even running away are sometimes a much better tactic than having to employ yer fave shooter.

    Living is right up there with my favorite enhancers. Staying out of the legal system has to be a solid second choice. ;)

    Best bet though mentioned for a more static thing would be a trigger job. A 12 pound pull on a 3 pound gun can't help anything.

    I think slow paced practice at your own leisurely rate.

    Or a Drill Sargent standing over you yelling at you to hit your g******n targets... either one, really. ;)

    Ahhh, brasshopper, you must define a presence with it's truancy. The answer you seek is: the absence of junk on the weapon. [gong sounds]

    Three primary motivators I learned a long, long time ago FUD,
    Fear, Uncertanity and Doubt. If this can't make you put forth the effort to overcome them you will not succeed.

    It may sound a bit simple but the use of a spotting scope has helped my shooting. Frequent range sessions with 22 rimfire handguns and rifle have also helped me improve.
