What shooting fundamental do you guys think you need to improve on the most? Trigger control, stance, grip...etc.   I have to work on shooting on the move and transitioning from target to target more smoothly while moving.  Another area would be to become more proficient with the weak hand.

Breathing.  I have an awful tendency to [unknowingly] hold my breath when lining up my shot.  It makes my hands shake and messes me up pretty bad.

Grip. No question.
I don't know what in the Sam Hill happened, but I've lost my grip and can't seem to get back in the groove.
Weak hand? Are you kidding?

I would like to get better using iron sights at further distances. Might be time for some glasses. UGH.

Lol...thanks. But I was referring to rifle.  While sighting in with irons on Monday, I realized how much I always relied on a scope for distance. Hell, I barely saw the bull at 50 yards.

Magazine changes with retention. Mag changes without retention, too, but not so much.
