How to Aim a Rifle
After having these preliminary details down fine you are ready to learn how to aim a rifle. Now, there are two different ways to do this and both of them are used by shooters at the present time.
The first way is to take a slow and painstaking aim at the target and without a thought or a care as to how long it takes to do it. This method is called sight shooting, and this is the way that is in general use today by most target-shooters, especially if the target is a fixed one. You should learn to shoot this way first.
The second method is called snapshooting, and this is the quick, spontaneous way of pointing a gun at the target and pulling the trigger. This is the style that Buffalo Bill and other old-timers used in shooting glass balls or other flying objects. This style of shooting is coming into vogue again, and in due time you should practice it.
