Recoil is a nasty byproduct of shooting rifles, but ignoring recoil can cause major problems that are quick to develop and hard to correct. Developing a flinch can ruin your ability to shoot well, so follow these steps to stop this nasty problem before it starts.
- Taking a beating at the range doesn’t prove anything. If you are serious about accuracy you need to be sure that you are shooting at your absolute best, and if you are wincing each time the recoil pad touches your battered shoulder it’s safe to say you won’t be shooting pretty little cloverleaf groups. Take time between shots and groups and make the most of your time at the range.
