Problem with a Target?
It’s Sunday morning and I’m at NTB with Brian’s truck, since he had a flat tire on his way to do his clinic this morning. So I left him my car and brought his truck to get new tires. It’s been a busy morning already.
Gil has been in Florida all week teaching over there and comes home tonight, while Brian and I have been holding down the fort here in Houston. The weather here has not been the best, with a lot of rain. Winter doesn’t want to go away and yesterday the winds were gusting to 25-30 mph. But everyone stayed and learned how to cope and even how to improve their shooting.
One of the easiest ways to improve your shooting is to do the three-bullet drill. I’m always amazed when students are having a problem with a target, I ask if they are doing the three-bullet drill, and their answer is “no.” The students doing the three-bullet drill are excelling like crazy. It’s a simple drill that you can do at home. It costs you nothing, but the results are incredible.
Your brain needs to have a clear picture of what you want it to see before you pull the trigger. So before you call “pull,” be sure to revisit the picture so the brain knows what you are asking it to do. It’s either to the right of the barrel or the left depending on where the target is coming from.
This is not rocket science, but it does require you to do the drill to see the picture.
Students are also really looking at the Knowledge Vault and using the search engine to find the information on things they are having trouble with. The forums are also starting to be used to ask questions and get some answers.
The new Coaching Hour is this Tuesday, and the recording should be up by Thursday. The Coaching Hour has so much information and once students realize that, they listen constantly. We have been doing them since November 2001, so there is a lot of information there. And if you don’t want to listen to them, we have had them transcribed and they are available on the website in paperback.
Until next time! Keep improving your shooting and your consistency!
