For the past few weeks I've been practicing dry firing off of my tripod. I thought it was nonsense shooting of off a tripod in your family room. After three weeks I've got to say I'm now a believer. Muscle memory is real. Dry firing off my shooting sticks every day has given me a much better feel for the rifle and the target. Practice every day cause it works. After three weeks I'm much steadier and can pick out a target in seconds. THe more you do it the better you become. Africa is still six months away but with this practicing, I'll be ready.
