Other than that, today, I will be sharing with you some important shooting techniques which I have learnt till now and which have proved very beneficial for me.

Before proceeding any further to the techniques of shooting, first of all, I would like to mention that any beginner will have to give proper time to get comfortable with the gun. When we do that we can really  master the basics of shooting quite easily.

There are four basic shooting positions:

  • Prone,
  • Sitting,
  • Kneeling and,
  • Standing.

One must get full knowledge about these positions to ensure safety regarding Gun Shooting. To know more about how to ensure safety during gun shooting, you may check it out.

Now moving to the first position i.e. the prone position, the shooter lays flat on the stomach with the rifle pointing toward the target. This is the most comfortable and the steadiest position.

But also, it is the hardest position to master. In this position the body is laying flat on the ground, providing a low center of gravity. Further, it is relaxed.

The second position is the sitting position. This is a stable position and is quite easy to assume. Further, this is one of the most accurate shooting positions. This position is used when we have time to get set up for a shot.

The kneeling position is the quickest of all positions to assume. It is not as steady as prone or sitting position. The best way to use this position is with shooting sticks

And the final fourth position is the standing position. This position is considered as the least accurate and least stable position, but sometimes it becomes necessary since it allow us to see over tall objects.
