zxcvbob said:Absolutely. It also helps to save one's good targets (for years) and throw away the bad ones.
When I first started shooting, I had many bad targets. The more I shot, the fewer bad ones I had. As I shot more and more, the good ones outnumbered the bad.
I found if I shot at least 300 rounds per week, I could stay in good form. Lay off a week, and my shooting suffered.
That's why I never became an exhibition shooter, I got married, and could not afford the practice required without some company's financial backing, and never got good enough for that.
