I have tried many strange things that folks have said help them.
shoot with both eyes open is one.
I guess they were trying to tell me to keep at least one open...
I tried a lot of advice as best I could.
for me it comes down to this place every time.
I know the first thing that wrecks my aim is any kind of 'excitement.'
Any thing that causes doubt,concern, worry, will cause excitement. And a little is a LOT.
when I am sure of what I see, the pistol in my hand, and have no causes for distracting myself.
I am true and can run out a magazine quick
I recall one time at the range when I self coached; "don't get excited, just look, then shoot."
I stopped for a bit and was thinking, "that was backwards, coach,... ummmm can you say in in forward?"
I realized the word I wanted exists; Serenity.
this was the lesson:
Find serenity in your shooting or you will miss a lot.
