Whether you started shooting at a young age and are already pretty good, or you are new to the sport and are still trying to get the hack of things – there are most probably some available tips for you to take advantage of in order to improve your skills.
Here are just a few of them for you to consider:
- Don’t stop moving your gun! When many people first of all see their targets, they tend to keep switching between looking at the target, and then at the barrel and then repeating several times. This should however not be the case; people should look at their targets and the barrel of their replica guns constantly, following their target with their gun. By keeping your head down and your weight over your front foot, you will be able to stay focused and sim better for each and every shot.
- It’ all about the rhythm. Before each shot, try counting to three and then taking the shot, this will allow you to be in total control. If you don’t do this and instead rush, chances are that you will not be focusing and aiming correctly and thus will miss.
- When pressing the trigger, do so slowly. Press it as smoothly as possible, again to ensure you can shoot as accurately as possible. Remember practice often make perfect so, spend as much time as possible practicing this on a target which you can purchase online. There are many different styles available. Ideally, you should be able to press the trigger, while focusing on the target and keeping the gun steady and still.
- Do not forget to stay safe at all times. Some of the things that you can practice to stay safe include: always treating weapons as though they are loaded, never pointing guns in unsafe directions (whether they are loaded or not), never pointing the gun at anything that you do not wish to shoot, constantly ensure that you are wearing the most appropriate ear and eye protection, never shooting at hard surfaces or water, and many more.
These of course are only some of the great shooting tips. If you require further advice or have any questions we recommend that you contact your sports guns supplier whom will no doubt be more than lad to assist you!
