That's like saying all you need to know to play Chopin is which keys to hit at what time on the piano

"stop sucking" and "suck less" .... both were given out as advice to me during Ironman :roflol:

Our group of guys are pretty ruthless :devil:

"Finesse the trigger," the instructor said. He was right.

Shoot accurately. Do everything else very, very quickly.

edited to add Mark's quote from Patrick. Something very easy for us to forget but clearly something he lives.

"Just do what you know how to do" and "Just shoot the front sight" Have been the most helpful thing I can tell myself at the line ready to shoot.

Don't shoot at steel. Shoot at the middle of the steel.

Don't shoot at steel. Shoot at the middle of the steel.

That is huge! If I was struggling, falling back to that was always helpful.

Over heard in a pub, when someone was batting on about a hole in one. Saying its all luck.

One guy chirps up, he is aiming at the pin, you are aiming at the green, sometimes you hit golf course, he always hits the green.

I think that is saying aim small, miss small. But its good advice and if you put it up there enough times sooner or later its going to fall in the hole..----------------Larry

If you can consistently hit a 3" target paster at 75 ft., how hard will it be to hit an 8" plate at 25?

My version of that is "aim small, hit small". It's a more positive viewpoint, possibly giving better results.

You are not your body, your body is a machine.  Your body responds to input and adapts to the inputs your give it.  

 

This is my mindset when trying to overcome the physical challenges of shooting (e.g. grip, stance, faster reloads).
