Note to self: slow down
Because of excitement, I tend to try and shoot my fastest at matches (rifle, pistol, 3-gun, and shotgun). I found that if I keep telling myself to only shoot 80% of the speed I did at the last good practice, I shoot much better. I think it is because even though I tell myself to only go 80%, with match excitement and all, I actually do end up shooting faster than I intended.
When I go "all out" I almost always screw up by going too fast to perform well. I guess for me it is that "Slower is smoother, smoother is faster."
