The supply of additional firearm accessories seems endless, so how do you choose which additions are necessary? In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus makes her case for why your rifle needs a bipod—especially if you plan to go afield. Though it's another gear addition to your rifle, a bipod is a tool that can be utilized on a hunt to help you make an accurate shot when it counts the most. Gabby Franco agrees that bipods are a worthwhile investment even if you don't plan to go in the field.
It's easy to get into a routine of shooting from the same position whether you're in a range or field setting. But the best way to test and improve your skills is to push yourself out of that comfort zone and shoot from different positions. In this episode of Tips & Tactics sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus explains how and why you need to integrate some unconventional positions into your shooting practice. Host Gabby Franco also has some ideas on how to test your shooting abilities in unique ways.
Finding your natural point of aim (NPA) is one of the most important aspects of downrange accuracy. The goal of NPA is to eliminate muscular tension that can affect your downrange accuacy. In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus explains the process of testing your natural point of aim with a rifle, and Gabby Franco follows up to explain that the same can be done when shooting a pistol.
In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus explains how having a clear sight picture is essential to making precise and accurate shots. When shooting with a rifle, a scope is a great tool that can help shooters see a sight picture that would otherwise be faraway, near and clear. However, taking a shot with the wrong sight picture in your scope will end up hurting your shot outcome.
