The Fundamentals of Marksmanship
Mark R. Mebes, SFC (Ret)
Shooting is a sport that requires the mastery of 7 fundamental skills. The shooter that masters all 7 of these will place every shot in the 10 ring, nearly every time. These fundamentals are easy to learn, but difficult to master. The degree to which you master ALL of these skills will determine how well you shoot. Some people master these fundamentals quickly, others take time. Shooting is a unique sport in that natural talent counts for less as time goes on. The best shooters are not necessarily those who started out shooting the best. The best shooters are normally those who work the hardest at mastering these 7 skills.
