The fundamentals of accurate shooting are (1) the gun must be held as motionless as possible, and (2) the gun must be held the same way for every shot. The fundamentals apply whether the firearm is a handgun, rifle or a piece of artillery.
We can’t hold the rifle absolutely motionless shooting in the field. The sight system accomplishes two things: It helps us index the rifle on the target we are trying to hit, and it shows us how steady our hold is. The essence of marksmanship is to control the trigger in order to release the shot while the sights are indexed on target.
With an optical sight (scope or red dot) anyone can figure out in a matter of seconds, how to index the system on target. With a few basic lessons most people can quickly figure out how to improvise a rest in order to hold the rifle reasonably still.
