I'm not accurate. And I hate that.
Ok, ok, there is no magic wand to wave. I don't think even the greatest trainer could put a dent in me. Other than by doing one thing: Hit me on the head every time I stop thinking about my trigger control.
I practice a bit. More than average now. The stance comes natural now. I am focusing on the front sight. I have diagnosed, and I am nearly certain I am right, that my rushing and lack of focus always always always shows up in spotty performance with trigger control. And I have never heard anyone say the trigger control isn't THE most important thing. Everybody says that and I am convinced that everybody is right. For those who good trigger work comes naturally, you are indeed fortunate, and I am jealous.
I need to tape a sign to the inside of my shooting glasses: SQUEEEEEEEZE, dammit.
Mentally getting over the recoil is a factor, but less of one now with all my trigger time.
I hope I can beat this thing, or I am ever going to be average to below average with my shooting, by my standards.
