What is the best way to practice some shooting skills at home? I am sure many of you have been told or have heard that practicing your mounting at home is a great thing to do. GUN mounting that is……I know, sorry, I promise not to digress……. Anyhow, with an unloaded gun. Practice mounting your gun to your own eye in the mirror. There are many tips about how to do this on the web, no need to go over it again here. Just remember though, it really does help and builds consistency in your gun mount and muscle memory as well.
Sounds crazy, but I have been known to keep an unloaded shotgun in the corner of my bathroom to just pick up and practice my gun mounts in the morning before my day gets started and again in the evening, especially right before a shooting event or wing shooting trip. Believe me, it helps a lot!
