Rifles can be intimidating for beginners. They have a good kick to them and can be unforgiving to bad technique especially if you are trying to shoot standing. That's why you need to know good basic rifle techniques.
We found a good video that walks through the basics.
Stance is critical. Recoil will be really hard on you without a good stance. Make sure you watch the demo in the video for good and bad stance and how it affects the shooter.
We also like the demo of how to manage the rifle if it is a bit heavy for you. This is a good section for women to watch.
Check out the video and let us know what you think in the comments.
