We went trap shooting again today.

I didn’t do as well as I typically do.

For some reason I felt wound up. I was thinking too much.

As I was shooting — fairly poorly — I had to shake out tension.

Relax.

I turned off my senses.

Forced a breath.

“Pull.”

Track. Trigger.

Break.

Gun sports are more than point and shoot.

It’s all a mind game.

It’s all in your head.
