PRACTICING RIFLE SHOOTING IN THE DIFFERENT POSITIONS

Rifle shooting in its final analysis is after all a very simple thing. The marksman has but to align a couple of sights with the target, hold his piece still, and pull the trigger, all very simple— apparently. However, when the novice comes to try it he discovers that he cannot stand still, or sit still, or lie still, if you place him on his back. Even with the muscles under perfect control, the heart action is disturbing, but no man that ever lived has his muscles under perfect control without continued and severe training. Not one man in ten thousand can stand still when he tries. It follows then that the first thing to be learned is to stand motionless, or sit motionless, or lie motionless, as the case may be.

Much of the preliminary training in rifle firing can be taught with an empty gun—both practice in holding and practice in trigger pulling. In the nature of things holding and trigger pulling go hand in hand, the one being useless without the other. Trigger pulling implies both nerve control, and nerve education. We will treat that subject more at length presently.

It is enough here to say that a child can pull the trigger of a gun, even when he doesn't mean to, and so can a man. But forcing the nerves of one finger to act at the exact psychological moment, not a hundredth of a second sooner or later, while every other nerve in the body remains quiescent is quite another story. The man who can do it is a rifle shot whether he can hold or not. On the other hand the fellow that can hold like a machine rest will give a good account of himself, no matter whether or not he is adept with the trigger. The marksman who combines good holding with perfect trigger pulling is a Doctor Hudson, a rare individual.
