Let's start at the beginning, where are your feet? A key element to precision shooting is consistency. You want to shoot the same way every time you pull the trigger. The more you eliminate inconsistency the more you can focus on other things that impact your shot. For me, that starts with my feet. When I first get to the firing line, before I even touch my gear, I find where my feet go. I practice arm raises with my eyes closed and then adjust my feet based on where my eyes tell me to move. No twisting, no lateral arm movement. Close your eyes, raise your arm, look down your arm at the target then move your feet to adjust. And once you find where your feet go, mark it. I prefer a couple of simple pieces of tape. Now over the course of the match you can return quickly and easily to your shooting position.
