The Boy Behind the Gun
While all of the above equipment is needed to shoot with, whether you are a beginner or an old-timer, there is (5) another element that goes with them to make a sharpshooter, and this is the boy behind the gun.
This personal equation, as it is called, and which means your mental and physical make-up, consists of just two things, and these are (a) a pair of quick, sharp eyes, and (b) the blood of a true sportsman coursing through your veins; and if you are gifted with these it doesn't matter one iota whether you have freckles on your neck or anything else is the matter with you, you can become as good a shot as ever stood on a firing-line.
