Concentration : Keeping your eyes on the target while aiming a gun requires a lot of focus. Removing your mind from any other activities, you find yourself in the present moment in which there is only one thing at hand to do, and it straight in front of you. Concentration levels are sharpened and expanded.
Better Eyesight: Relieving eye stress by giving your eyes a break from staring at computers, TVs, phones and tablets
Safety : Personal responsibility is taught throughout the shooting sports to advance both safety and skill development
Physical balance: Remaining perfectly still in your shooting stance while aiming your gun at the target exercises your core muscles, which supports proper posture. When the abdominal muscles are weak, the lower back holds additional pressure and weight from simple daily tasks like walking. Strengthening the abdominal muscles allows the weight of the upper body to be evenly distributed over the front and back, improving balance.
