"There are three secrets ln shoot
ing," says W. R. Jackson, cham
pion rifle shot of California's Na
tional Guard, and one of the beat
marksmen ln the nation.
"Good coaching Is the first se
cret, squeezing the trigger is the
second and using the gun strap as
an arm support, the third.
'"I attribune my success as a
marksman largely to the good
coaching I received ln the begin
ning. Since becoming capable
myself I nave given much help
ln developing other marksmen.
"The thing to ntrlve for' is aot
to develop a few crack shot* but
to establish a high average In a
body of men. Of course, evsry
good shot should be developed as
far aa he will go—he's of J»st
that much more vaius.
When I Joined Company I
three years ago, we had but one
expert shot In tbe company. Now
we bare 22. That shows what
proper coaching will do. *
"Average aarksmanshlp shoold
be established throughout the
citizenry of tbe nation, for It Is
the volunteer who makes the sol
dier. If hs knows how to shoot
bofore he goes to the recruiting
office he has lifted a great re
sponsibility off his officers and
has made himself ready tor ..be
