    popped the .22 buckmark, aim is constantly leaning to the upper left. I was much worse than my dad. All in all it was fun, and i didn't get yelled at for doing anything stupid. Those casings are fucking hot though, I was wearing a wife beater piece of shit. god damn loud as hell too, but the kickback isn't that bad.


    anybody got any tips?

    i went to walmart and got some higher rated earplug things, it came in like a pack of 10 foam things, it was rated higher than the plastic ones so i was like w/e. doesn't fit too well but it doesn't fall out ever, still loud as fuck though.

    Orange foamies should be plenty good for a .22 at an outdoor range.

    Like already mentioned - learn the 4 rules. Practice the 4 rules. Take your time with each shot.

    Get the paper targets that have your faults listed on them. I believe low left is pushing/anticipating. I don't know what they're called, I usually buy them when I see them.

    Also, the dart board targets are fun.

    Outside, you've got natural moving reactive targets all over the place.

    My dad used to shoot competitively and slaughters me at target practice. Don't feel too bad about it.
