The reason may be that you've practiced alot with that gun and have the motor skills so it happens and works well naturally versus when you think about it. I've experienced this myself with a handgun I regularly practice with and if I just shoot I'm better but start thinking about everything too much and shooting goes to crap. I don't know just a thought.
Nialed it Chas. Im by NO means what I consider good with a handgun. But Im confident enough in my ability to put rounds on target it a timely manner. The only thing that puts that confidence there is a ton of practice, and alot of playing around (a.k.a. fun practice) ''betcha cant hit that sage rat..........'' kind of fun practice.
For me, just like any other tool, the more you use it the the better you get untill it becomes second nature. In crunch time it pays off.

(Not to be taken seriously)

I think its a damn fine caliber for bear protection. I have never been killed by a bear while carrying a 22 mag.

-Lone Gunman, regarding the .22WMR with regards to bears.

Back when I lived in Wyoming and hunted in Grizzly country I carried a .375 H&H Rifle and a .44 Mag Ruger Redhawk with Garrett's 330 grain +P loads. on my hip.
