Holding a heavy rifle while standing and aiming at a rock two hundred yards away is more difficult than most would imagine. Once you’ve placed your crosshairs on the target, even the slightest breath or movement in your body sends the crosshairs jiggling; all over the place. You have to take into account wind direction and speed. You have to be calm, and not rush. You have to be confident. A tiny jerk of the trigger will send the bullet askew. It’s hard, that’s my excuse. Like writing.
