Shooting is for everyone! Here are a few things necessary to go far!
First off… get a rifle.
Whatever discipline you decide to pick up, small bore and/or air rifle, make sure you invest in a mechanism that has what you need. Not every rifle is meant for every person’s body; if you are a smaller set person, you will want to look for a stock that isn’t too long and makes shooting uncomfortable
Find a place to shoot.
Search the local area for a shooting range or association that allows you to put lead down-range. Here is a link from USA Shooting that allows you to search for a club near you. https://usashooting.sport80.com/widget/clubs
Learn the positions.
Researching the basic fundamentals of the sport are necessary! Shooting prone isn’t as easy as just laying down and shooting it. He is a link from USA Shooting that can help with that.
You have a gun and if you have a place to shoot, now start training! Make a consistent schedule and get over to the range to train.
Now set goals.
