For new shooters, find an instructor that can teach you the very basics in breaking a target. By doing this you will save a lot of money on ammo and a lot of valuable time.
Practice is not just going to the range and shooting 3 or 4 boxes of shells. Practice is developing mental and technical skills to get you ready for tournament shooting. If you choose not to be involved in tournament shooting,you can use your skills for hunting and also for family fun at the range. Shooting disciplines carry over to other skills in life which will enable you to handle other stressful situations and control your emotions.
