I know people who think this is a very serious problem. They believe you are only supposed to shoot your target at 400 yards. I disagree. This is a joke, but seriously… when I am shooting, I don’t care if you hit a tree or a person. I am trying to be as focused as possible so I don’t miss, but it all comes down to the shooting itself… the gun and the target. You can’t get distracted.
To me, the two are completely separate. I am not distracted by the gun. My mind is not focused by the gun. My shooting is focused on the target. Both of these things are very different. You can have the same gun and one person will do much better with that gun. If you have a good gun, you can get the same shot out of it. The only real difference is how fast you are going to hit the target.
