There's another way to become a better rifleman (better rifle shooter).

It helped me. I went to an Appleseed, a couple of field shoots at Ramseur (2005) and then an RBC (2006 - the 2nd one every conducted).

I was feeling pretty good about my rifle shooting. In those days it was mostly center fire rifles shooting and more .30 caliber rifles than .223 caliber rifles.

After the RBC I started instructing. Every now and then (not every Appleseed, but fairly often) I'd be watching someone else shoot, or trying to figure out what they were doing wrong, or trying to show them how to improve and it would hit me - hey, I do this same thing. I didn't realize it, no one (perhaps) had noticed me doing it or suggested a workable fix but suddenly, while trying to help someone else, I'd help myself.

It's a road. Improvement is a never ending road that you keep traveling and getting better at but you still have room to grow.

Thanks from Dougboffl
