Thanks, ya'll, for all your help.
I guess I wasn't very forthcoming with more information about my shooting experience, but I am, in fact, experienced. I was in the military, have been shooting many times with various different guns (from the M16 to my hubby's 7MM and AK47 to a Ruger Mark III to a Colt 45 revolver) and even took a pistol marksmanship class this semester to get an extra credit into my schedule.
So, as far as breathing techniques, trigger squeeze, good position and stuff goes, I'm pretty good. I know I'll have to get familiarized with my new rifle, but I have the basics understood.
I appreciate everyone's comments and help! THANKS YA'LL!!
