Another early idea was to use reinforced bamboo to shoot arrows and darts. No one knows who thought of this, but they did indeed change the world. The general consensus is...

    The very most essential foundation of accurate shooting is trigger control. How were you taught to shoot, or did you just learn it "OJT?" What type of firearm did you learn to shoot first, and have you transferred that technique to everything you shoot? I suppose you could take a formal shooting course and learn the textbook styles of trigger control for pistols, revolvers, rifles, and even shotguns. There are some very subtle differences in how to correctly shoot each firearm type, but more importantly is finding a way for you to learn to best shoot every gun you own....
