I quit coffee a year ago in favor of green tea (coffee= caffeine+no health benefits, green tea= no caffeine+several health benefits) and my shooting has improved noticeably. Never did drink soda pop, or any high sugar drinks.

You won't know until you try it- so what is stopping you?

Pop, soda or some call it coke. depends on where your from. Folks kinda looked at me funny when I said, I want a pop. First I thought it was my big nose, but realized it was because of what I had called soda. I mean coke.

Or in some places they call it colddrink. Yeah that was an interesting conversation.

But anyway. Just try going without for a while.

Ill have a cup in the morning, and occasionally a soda when Im at work. But if I have any more than that and I get jittery.

Pop is my drug addiction!!! I started drinking diet coke with splenda to lessen the calories I'm drinking.

Barney Fife's hands used to shake uncontrollably whenever he had to draw his service revolver. Was it caffeine or fear?

I'm guessing fear, because nobody ever got shot in Mayberry.

Am going to try a cup before shooting to see if it helps.
My soon to be ex brother in law has SEVERE ADHD. I've watched this kid walk into walls. Caffeine calms him down.

Fear. He knew he only had one bullet and he forgot to take it out of his shirt pocket.
