Sean Gaines Posted January 22, 2008 Share Posted January 22, 2008 (edited) We all know that we are not TGO, we all know that having a good grip, will allow you to control the gun better, and manage recoil better. We all know that points matter alot, and some of us still continue to shoot as fast as we can without getting the good hits. After we have been told that its not about speed,its a combination of speed and accuaracy, over and over etc, etc. My point is that, sometimes when people give other people advice, we sometimes take it with a grain of salt and not really analyze the full extent of how valuable the advice is. We sometimes say that I already know that, and thats as far as it goes. Maybe its the way its presented, maybe in a nonchalaunt way were it doesn't stick,or maybe its just a learing curve that all shooters must find out the hard way. or maybe its an ego thing. But if we stopped and listened and make a note of it and practice it, it may improve your scores. I have found myself, getting advice from other shooters, and telling myself yeah yeah I know that and it, and really never applied it, so I continued to make the same errors. Until later when it dawns on me that I should change that specific skill, to improve, and then it works, then what happens is that I wasted all that time that I could have been applying that new skill to my shooting, and could have been getting better scores,from the time that skill was presented to me. Call it what you want, human nature, call it ego. Just a little thing that I have noticed, I am sure we have all fallen into this trap. this post isn't just about the 2 examples I mentioned at first, its about all the little things that are fundamental in shoointg sports or shooting in general, I just used those examples, because those are pretty common errors people make. I think by bringing it to light, you may look at advice in a different way. Hopefully it will improve your shooting. thanks for listening Sean Edited January 22, 2008 by PAPER KILLER Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
