Probably the one thing that I feel has helped me improve my shooting the most, is the use of snap caps randomly placed in the cylinder.
It allows me to catch any flinch I might begin developing. It also let's me see exactly what happens when the hammer drops. Is my trigger control pulling/pushing the sights one way or the other? follow through on the trigger? I rarely shoot a full cylinder of ammo at a time. Usually 3 snap caps and 3 live rounds.
by no means am I a crack shot, but I have seen improvement in my shooting. Which makes it awfully nice and keeps me motivated.
Sounds like you are interested in more than just self-defense against two-legged predators of the urban variety. Snakes? Bears? Wolves? Feral dogs? Rabid critters of various kinds?nnero93":2ya6ivo3 said:I just want something to keep with me on the tractor or when we are cutting firewood in the winter.
