thanks for the excellent tips and I,ll be on them right away

cheers All and will let ya all know how its going

The femoral runs behind the knee. See if your trousers are bunching up there... and be wary about knee strap placement.

To find the pulse have someone gently lift the rifle away from contact points one by one.

Some great advice above. I can suffer from being over eager/nervous and jittery on the start of a course too. I do get round it by getting to first lane and letting myself settle a bit, then watching the environment around me for hints on the wind. If my head is screwed on straight on the day I'll do a routine on every lane.. I'm therefore not distracted, just as Rob said. In fact I've become quite the creature of habit during a shoot!

I got back into shooting in 2011, it's the best way to forget all the rubbish during the week, because if you're truly focused on the shoot and your routine, everything else just disappears.

All really good advice above, no doubt you will get it sorted.
Would only add the possibility of Viagra, should bring the blood pressure down a bit and might possibly give you an additional point of contact / support for kneelers!

If I mention the problem I have it may also help you reduce this phenomenon ...

When I range find (Originally a Falcon T50) I hold my breath so as to steady the image and hopefully get a good distance reading..... The problem then is I am gasping for quite a few seconds after.... add this to nerves and my first 10 shots are generally poor.

I am working really hard on my breathing generally but whilst ranging even more so. I now have a sightron which snaps a lot better and this has helped tremendously.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Stuart

Be aware that taking two will also give you stiff neck, and will make shooting very uncomfortable.
