Your natural point of aim (NPOA for my finger’s sake) is a point that you and your rifle naturally aim at when in firing position. Prone shooting allows you to use this powerful tool very easily. Peer down your sights and look at your target. Close your eyes, relax your body, and let the rifle drift and settle into the position it wants. Open your eyes and peer through your sights. Is your rifle pointing at the target? No? Then adjust your body position to allow the rifle to naturally point at the target.
This is an important tool because aiming naturally at the target takes out human error in trying to contort the body and muscles to stay on target. If you can stay on target without exerting any effort then you are on the right track to consistent, accurate shooting. Once you have positioned yourself to take advantage of NPOA, you are ready to take your shot.
Focus on the font sight, front sight is crystal clear…target slightly fuzzy, squeeze the trigger while maintaining perfect sight and target alignment. BOOM! Great shot! If the rifle recoils and falls back into the exact same position where it naturally points at the target…then you are doing things RIGHT.
