Site Picture for Target Shooting

The manner of bringing the sights onto the center is something for the individual rifleman to solve in his own way. The proverbial instruction is for the marksman to bring his piece up from beneath until the sights cover the bull and then press trigger. This will not do with a heavy Schuetzen rifle balanced on a palm-rest.

The tendency of the big weapon is to swing across the bull horizontally, back and forth. Some men of quick nerve action can pull as the rifle swings, without altogether stopping it, and get good results. Usually they press the trigger while the piece is moving from right to left since the rifle in its left swing hardens and sets the muscles, consequently traveling more slowly. Probably a better system of regulating the swing is to have the left extremity of the movement just reach the center where the weapon must "hang" for an instant before beginning the return to the right side.

In my case I found that my rifle had a pretty regular swing but not pendulum like. It moved off the center to the right, rose a trifle, and then settled down across the bull from two o'clock to six, where I endeavored to stop it and let off— failing to get the pull it would again move off to the right and around as before. If I was in my best form, and using telescope, the sight would never quite leave the twelve-inch. All my premature shots would be to the right and high, delayed let-offs low, and now and then the rifle jumped beyond control throwing the ball high and to the left. In sharpshooting it is a great and fascinating gamble as to what is going to happen when the marksman settles his rifle on the black, but when the perfect pulls come regularly he has a feeling of power the nearest to omnipotent ever vouchsafed to man.
