Chuck Yeager can fly an F86 and win a dogfight against another great pilot flying a Mig15.

Then, they can land and switch planes and General Yeager will still win.

Good shooting fundamentals are the most important element, but gear quality should be constantly upgraded as ability improves.

A bad shooter with a good rifle will only get worse with a bad rifle...a good shooter with a bad rifle will get better with a good rifle.

If you cant sight in that $500 scope and use proper trigger control,your most likely going to get killed by a trained soldier with a Derringer.

Anyone can become a good shooter if they are dedicated, get good instruction and practice. Great shooters, on the other hand, are born to it.

Lot of you guys forget,
long before the fancy equipment existed shooters were able to accomplish great feats of shooting accuracy.

+1...many marksmen before scopes even existed...even then that Russian kid Vasily Zaytsev scored 100s of kills with a rifle that sells today for about $150.
