I went down to my local pistol/rifle club yesterday to find out about joining. I met a very nice gentlemen who is also a certified NRA instructor. After going thru the safety basics and the rules we went on the range. Within an hour he had me placing almost all my shots in the rings and thats at 25 yards. He showed me how to find the proper stance for me, how to pull the trigger, with which part of the finger to use and breathing techniques. He had me shoot the first 40 shots my way and we then compared the first target to the target after getting the instructions. It was night and day !
