25143Re: Target Panic NYTimes article.
- Aug 4, 2008I hit a bout of target panic a few years back and I still have not
totally gotten over it. It was quite dissillusioning to end one
season figuring you were going to break 80 to come back and hope you
could break 20. It really is a case of 'panic'. Part of you just says
release now even if another part is saying no!
I spent a lot of time in my garage just practising coming to full
draw, holding it, and letting down.
Even after doing the bare boss thing and other things, getting back
to SCA practise can bring it all back. The timed end of the Royal
Round can throw all the other drills off. I found I had to
deliberately slow down everything on the timed round. This is not
easy to do as the speed round tends to induce an adrenaline rush.
