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
    But how many people can afford a 500/4L like you?

    I did it the Jackie Chan way: I hooked up a pail of water to end of a length of timber and aimed at one point everyday.

    If you do this, even a Karl Gustav is no problem man

    Do more pushups. 100 a day would suffice. Or you can follow kahheng's Jackie Chan training advice (see the post above).

    Dun think accuracy is about strength leh. I dunno much abt rifle, but in archery, i was the weakest in strength but most accurate in shots.

    regards to breathing, i also dun think purposely breathe out or hold breath is good for accuracy. In fact, i know if a person hold breath, the concentration is lost for one, 2nd is that the body will start to tremble (very slightly and may not even notice it) if hold more than 3 sec.

    When i shoot, i dun really notice how i breathe, but video footage shows that 90% of the time, i release my shots on my "out-breathe". also, do not aim too long. anything more than 3 sec is considered too long. usually, wht i do is 1. focus. 2. take a deep breathe. 3. get ready. 4. up, aim, release shot (all under 3 sec for step 4)

    I think the strength helps in terms of being able to hold the rifle with ease, so that you can easily aim the sights to the target and stay there. The breathing technique is also very important!
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    OK. One question for the sport shooter with their 5fps bodies.

    When you shoot in multiframe mode, do you say "TWENTY-ONE" and let go?
