Personally..I had my best seasons shooting Bullseye matches after spending the winter shooting air pistol postal matches. There was an obvious transfer of skills from the .177 CO2 gun to the 1911.....slow fire scores went up as did sustained fire scores.
Shotgunning.....I practiced "point" shooting with a somewhat modified Red Ryder BB gun. I ground off the front sight, removed the factory stock/made a simple pine stock of the correct LOP for me and added weights (taped to the barrel and the stock) to bring the weight up to close to seven pounds.
Walking in the woods, I practiced mounting and shooting (both eyes open) at any object that captured my attention.
In the yard, golf balls made suitable targets.
