    Controlling your breathing and shoot on a midway point on the exhale while holding for a second is definitely the way to go. Albert from http://www.carpetremnantsguide.com

    as your sight picture comes into focus control the movement into a circle tightening the circle as you squeeze, with a little practice your groups will tighten as your timing improves

    One last piece of advise (I think). Eye focus: The last thing your eye should be focused on before the shot is the very top of your front sight post. After you breath out and start taking up the trigger slack, you have 5-10 seconds to take the shot. If you haven't shot by then, your eyesight will begin to dim. Hold what you have on your trigger, take another breath, exhale, relax, squeeze. Keep your eye focus moving from the target to your sight. If you stare at the sight too long, you can burn the image into your retina(hold your hand in front of the sun and look at it for a bit. Now close your eyes and you'll still see an image of your hand).

    Try to control your breathing and shoot on a midway point on the exhale while holding for a second. Also try resting bone to muscle, bone to bone will give you a better chance to wobble.

    Sorry, It's been more than 20 years since I shot competition and things keep coming back to me. Do you wear a shooting mitt on your nonfiring hand? It can help remove the 'pulse jump'. Always try to think bone to bone when building a shooting position. Meat is soft and wobbly!

    I forgot to add 'natural point of aim'. Close your eyes. Breath in. Breath out. Relax. Open your eyes. Where are you aiming? It should be the center of your target. If you are too high, bring your back foot forward. If you are to the right, bring your back foot to the right. Do this until you are on target in a relaxed position. Muscles are jumpy, you don't want to use them when firing. Only the muscle in your trigger finger.

    The standing offhand position is the hardest for anyone! Start with a steady position of your feet. Good boots with ankle support can help. The elbow of your firing hand should hang down. The rifle should rest on the palm of your nonfiring hand, with fingers and thumb on the opposite side of your bolt. Charlie Elk is correct(I have long, skinny arms and can get my elbow into the pocket above my hip). Lean back a ways and turn your body toward the target. This is called back bend/ body twist and removes a lot of the gaps in your spine to provide more stability. Once you practice enough, you should notice a sideways figure 8 motion of your rifle. That's as steady as you can get. Time your shot to the center of the 8. Good luck!

    We use competition grade peep sights and .22s.My coaches have been a great help.At the end of last season when we got certificates,I got an award for most improved beginner(I was the favorite,but you can't give 'em an award saying "My Favorite") =)
    It's pretty fun and I've made friends that I have something in common with.
    Thanks again boys. TGO

    You fellows are a credit to this web site. The advice given to this question was worthy of note and had value to beginner and expert alike. Sure, there is plenty of nonsense on the forum, I sponsor some of the nonsense myself. However, it can be and often is a wonderful resource.

    Try bracing your arm on your ribs. Hold the rifle as usual, bring the forward arm back until the elbow and length of the humerus rests solidly along your ribs, move your hand along the forend to find its best stable postion.
    Dry firing as described is excellent practice, add to this breathing excercises. Sometimes unsteadiness is caused by the shooter holding thier breath while aiming too long. As soon as the sight picture is correct squeeze the trigger.
    later,
    charlie

    Onalaskan....Snow has a great point. I also shoot competitively (service rifle) and the biggest thing that helped with my offhand was practice dry firing at a dot on the wall...you can never eliminate all the movement, but focus on good breathing, take up the slack in the trigger, and condition your mind to squeeze the round off as soon as you hit a good sight picture so it's automatic. The biggest thing, however, is to try to relax...my best standing scores have been when i was too dog tired to care how i shot! good luck!
