Calling Your Shots While Target Practicing

After a little experience on the range the rifleman can begin calling his shots, telling where they went before the marker signals. The more expert the shooter the closer he can call. It is nothing uncommon for a skilled shot to "call" his bullet within an inch of where it has gone. To do this he must not only see where the sights were when he pulled, but must keep his eye on them and note where they jumped to with the recoil. If the rifle rises straight across the bull with its recoil the marksman can expect to find his bullet where he sighted it, but if it jumps out badly to either side expect a bad shot in that direction. It is much easier to call shots with a lightly charged, heavy barreled rifle than with one much influenced by recoil.

It will not do to strain the eye too much in sighting. Experience will teach the shooter that the greatest clearness of vision lasts for but a short time, and then it fades to return again— this happening in regular rotation. The pull off must then be so timed as to take place when the vision is the clearest, if the shot is to be called accurately.

The training of muscle and nerve is as arduous in a crack rifleman as that of the finest juggler in the world—in fact of all human beings he has the most perfect muscle control. Not only from seeing, but from feeling and mental calculation he has the most delicate perception of the movements of his piece. To such stage of perfection is the training in feeling where his rifle is pointed carried that after placing it upon the bull he can tell exactly the spot his sights are covering without again looking at them. I have known a marksman to sight his rifle, then shut his eyes, pull the trigger to order, and get a bull’s-eye— sometimes. While holding and not looking, of course, he had a mental picture of where the sights were swinging every instant of the time.
