Tobacco use and bullseye

Post by Bruce M on Thu Jan 31, 2013 7:08 pm

First topic message reminder :

I am a smoker and have read that smoking causes the shooters hands to tremble. I have been shooting for about 6 months and I dry fire alot. I do have a Crazy wobble! I was wondering if the shake from smoking is the same with tobacco use in general or is it just when the tobacco is combusted?
I know I should quit again( I have quit for 3 years twice and 7 years the last time) but the last time I quit I gained 70lbs and that's not good either.
I usually miss at least 3 out of 10 shots in slow fire and its not my guns, it's me!
Is there any hope for a case like me?
I do love the challenge and the folks I have met in the sport.

Thanks for any advice, Bruce

I know a military shooter that would shoot slow fire like timed so he could run back get in his truck and smoke. He shot a 2671 during one of these smoke enhanced matches.

I'd say that's pretty good shooting there!

LtC Miller told me of shooters taking a smoke break between SF shots when he shot with Joe Benner and others. LtC Miller retired from Army about 1962 and mentored me from 1969-1975

About 20 years ago I embarked on a study to become an effective shooting coach. I bought, read every book I could find on the subject, and completed the NRA course. Somewhere in that study, I recall reading that, years ago, Japanese Olympic pistol shooting team hopefuls, were rejected for ever having smoked.
