LOL! Yeah Buddy, that is a tough shot … a small target …  a windy day … untrained muscles … but certainly a great rifle. A lot of those shots, if done in one setting, can work their way into your mind which effects your shooting. If I was in that kind of situation, I wouldn't take more than 15 shots at a time. Then I would sit down, contemplate … go over every nick knack of my shooting fundamentals in trying to score on this target … think about something else for awhile … remember how enjoyable the sport is, instead of how frustrating it can be at times. BECAUSE, if you don't, you run the risk of forming a mental block and mental blocks are incredibly easy to form and very time consuming to get rid of. I'm sure you know, the hardest person in the world to beat is yourself. I've seen your other videos … you are good … okay, more than good … you have talent and a gift. You have a lot going for you with your ability to read the wind, but reading the wind correctly wont help much until you and get those muscles in shape to do what you are asking them to do. Don't be too hard on yourself, we all have bad days. Pressure is only pressure, it's yours to do what you want with it. Tomorrow is a new day
