There is a reason why baseball players spend an hour in the batting cage every single day. There is a reason why chefs will spend hours trying to make the perfect spaghetti sauce. Practice makes perfect. The more you practice at something, the better you are going to be at.
This is true of shooting any kind of firearm. The more you practice with your firearm the more proficient you are going to get with it. It’s just common sense.
However, don’t let yourself get caught up in being excellent at one range or in one facet of use with your firearm. Practice shooting at different ranges, starting with 25 feet, and work your way out to 100 yards or more. Practice shooting at targets that are moving, targets that are different sizes, and targets that challenge your ability to shoot them. Obviously, that shouldn’t include people, but practice hunting one time. Go out and see how efficient you are at dropping a rabbit that is 75 yards away from you.
