I have been told that you should not grip them tightly and that you should let them recoil, but apart from this, I have not got a clue. So any help would be very much appreciated.

Oh, and if any of you want a laugh at my expense, then come to Lea Valley this Sunday and you can take the xxxx

I find it best to close my eyes when pulling the trigger, that way i can't see if i've missed or not.
