Young Shooters Sticking Their Elbows Out
Here’s another anomaly we often see often in younger shooters.
With the gun mounted, their elbows are sticking straight out to either side. To this day, we cannot understand why they do this.
Your elbows on both arms should be a comfortable 45 degrees to the line of the bore – not 90 degrees. You could even get by with your front elbow being a little below 45 degrees to support the front of the gun a little more. But not straight out to the side, please.
It makes no sense. And it destroys your ability to maintain balance because now you are moving the muzzle from your ankles up.
