The Wind Book for Rifle Shooters

#1 Postby UL1700 » Mon May 18, 2020 4:38 pm

After 392 days on pre-order :shock: the new edition of the wind book for rifle shooters has finally been dispatched! If it proves to be anything like as good as the 1st edition (I had a loan copy) then it will be essential reading!

Why must everything shooting related be so expensive?
It’s cheaper at A&R

I have their first book and yes it is very good. Will be interesting though to see what what improvements the new edition offers.

I have half a ream of paper currently spewing out of my printer. Looks like a good read for just $21.

I bought the 1st edition copy early on and read it thoroughly. Did it help me ? I really don't think so. Waaay too much waffle.

The best way I reckon is to learn it while actually shooting. And the less “gun handling” u have to manage the better i.e. if your shooting ‘process’ involves excessive attention to the gun handling – or ANY other distraction – then straight away this compromises your ability to really focus on the conditions.

As soon as I decided to go totally free recoil it was a turning point for me, as if I did have a handle on the conditions but the gun handling was compromising my focus, preventing me from making good/better decisions ?

The last thing I want to do is to sound cocky but If you have a long drawn out process to get each shot away then you're in a very different position to a shooter who has the 'package' under control and can release shots quickly.
