It's every shooter's dream to one day be on the headlines of a popular newspaper and being widely publicized as a world champion in some foreign country. but first, you have to win several local championships before you can get to that level. I know this is a generalized question but any opinion or advice can be helpful to other forumers. Question is...what does it take to ultimately reach that goal? How many times a day should a shooter practice? How much dry fires? how much ammo shot per practice? How many competitions should one join in order to really master the art? or is it really just plain and simple "Talent"?
