For me I attached my 500mm f4L to my camera and aimed at one point for that amount of time. In the end at the range, ATP was so easy. Scored 100% for my ATP! With M16, not SAR21 some more! Easy money too.

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers,
    Nick

    Anyway what's everyone's preferred shooting position? I like being in prone (BTW I like to have my sleeves folded to my elbow when I shoot - anyone with the same preference?)

    I beg to differ.
    WHen you're abt to shoot, breathe out. It helps to stabilise your body.

    Well its not what i was taught then. When doing pull-ups, breadth out as you accend. For range, breadthing out will cause your body to move. - ppl taught me. I not expert in range and only shot during NS time.

    Other than stablility,

    the breathing, the strength, the holding position, the way that you squeeze the trigger...all got to be consistent in order to hit to bull eye every time.

    I can't remember if there is point system for ATP, but some of my targets got 1, 2 and 5 points system, so it is not just about hitting the target, must aim the head or the heart in order to get marksman.

    ATP got point system. 1 target 1 point

    to others there's no point in doing ATP

    for me there's only $200 for me to collect everytime i go for ATP during my NSF days
    Go there is just to twang and collect money.. yum yum.. too bad 1 year can only go once SAF so stingy...

    i like prone with support and i'll ask for 2-3 sandbangs so my rifle is fully rested on the sandbang to my eye level. Relak like nobody's business liao. ahahah.. else sitting position also not bad. quite comfy.

    neither u should hold your breath nor breath out before you trigger.

    I was taught to breath normally and not hold your breath for too long because it will affect concentration....all u need is to breath in 100% just before you are going to trigger, then breath out 25% (at your normal breathing rate), then pause and quickly got to trigger already.
