    We have dominant eyes, feet, hands....did you know you have a dominant nostril?

    Stand close to a mirror or glass window with your nose touching or a fraction of an inch off. Breathe in deeply through your mouth and then exhale through your nose.

    Try it...you might be surprised on what this will tell you about your shooting technique.

    Is this one of those "if your hand is bigger than your face you have cancer" things? And the moment you put your hand over your face you get slapped?

    Currently I have no air coming out of my left nostril...

    I think what he's trying to say..is that if you don't have proper air flow..through your nasal passages..you won't be able to tell if your shooting stinks...:woot:

    Hmmmm---maybe if ya get to breathin' hard, the imbalance in the jets
    of air from the nostrils will force your head to one side and spoil your
    aim?
