Don't hold your breath. You should be exhaling when your ready to squeeze the trigger. But note taken.

Actually..in competition shooting, they say that you shouldnt eat right before you shoot. I dont know if its true but they say that you don't get as much blood flow to your eyes after eating because all of your energy goes to digesting your food and not to your eyesite.

Sound advice especially if one is going to be shooting from the prone.

Don't hold your breath.

Exhale slowly and evenly and when you get to the bottom pause and fire.

This thread has a TON of good shooting tips.

Trigger timing, training, practice
