The Art of Snap-shooting
While snap-shooting will be very much harder than sight-shooting for you to get the knack of, still you will be well repaid for the time and trouble you take to practice it.
Snap-shooting is done like this: you don't aim your gun through the sights as you do in sight shooting, but you take aim by instinctive sighting, that is, by bringing the gun to your shoulder, looking straight at the target or other object that you want to hit and pulling the trigger. In this way you get a bead on it automatically.
When beginning the practice of snap-shooting it is a good plan to set up a fixed target at about 25 feet and then raise and point your gun at it quickly, and a& you do so keep both eyes open and focused on the target and not on the barrel of your gun.
After having practiced this exercise until you feel that you could hit the target it is time to use ammunition and, as the old saw goes, if at first you don't succeed try, try again until you do. As you grow more and more skillful you should increase your range until you are shooting 100 yards in this way. When you become an expert at snap-shooting and use a repeating gun you can pump 12 or 15 shots into an amazingly small target and with lightning-like rapidity.
