Shooting Quote of the Unspecified Temporal Interval *
In a previous post I mentioned having your handgun go into "Magic Mode" in competition, where everything sort of goes on auto-pilot and you almost feel like a spectator, watching the match through your sight. I came across this quotation on The Encyclopedia of Bullseye Pistol's website that describes the phenomonon:
"The truly great shooters pay little or no attention at all to their competition, or anything else for that matter. For them, the contest takes place inside their head. The real struggle is to get in the zone. When they find it, the rest just seems to happen. It's as if the world around them melts, the distractions disappear and the universe is reduced to the few simple elements of eyes, hands, gun and target."Title 'borrowed' and modified from Engineering Johnson.
- Gabby Hulgan (1996 NSSA World Skeet Champion)
Thanks to Manfred for reminding me of the website.
