Freeing Yourself from Mechanical Thinking

Shooting singles in different break points is so critical, and playing the game is so powerful!

Playing the game - shooting single targets in your predicted break point - forces you to recall the circuit that your brain knows will break that target the way you want it broken. It’s based on your visual movie in your preload. It’s so relaxing when you do this because it frees you from all mechanical thinking.

As I think back on demoing shots and shooting shots when we're out having a good time, I’m not thinking about the mechanics of the shot. I'll play the movie, pause, keep my eyes in the focal point, and close the gun in a routine. I’ll call “pull,” and when it's stable, or when they converge, or it gets sharp, I pull the trigger.
