Cowboy Action Shooting Tips on Practicing (Video)

In this featured video, World Cowboy Action Shooting champion Jim Finch a.k.a. Long Hunter offers valuable cowboy action shooting tips on practicing with rifles and revolvers. Here he puts emphasis on improving what you are uncomfortable with, NOT what you are already comfortable with and capable of doing well.

In this video produced by National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), World Champ Long Hunter discusses:

  •      Practicing drawing on your weak side
  •      Practicing lateral movements while shooting
  •      The specific practice routine Jim goes through, along with his mindset
  •      How and why he doesn’t stick to the conventional way of practicing
  •      How Jim develops confidence through practice
  •      He answers the often-asked question, “Jim, how do you practice?”

Jim offers his personal insights on practicing before a stage shooting. He talks about how he strives to improve his weak area. By constantly practicing what is uncomfortable to him, Jim is able to overcome the nervousness and tightness that go along at the beginning of a match game.

“Always practice what you’re uncomfortable with. Don’t practice what you’re comfortable with – because you’re already comfortable.”
