what he said. start first by getting as stable as possible to get yourself a good zero. i understand that you say you want some CQB skills, however please take this advise. start off slow. dont go shooting fast or trying to mimic what you may see on tv or movies right away. the key to being a good shot and moving fast is by starting as a goodshot when moving slow. you need to focus on the fundamentals, technique, and how you and your rifle function together. i highly suggest dry fire practice in between range trips. you want to really learn your breath and trigger control. you want to be able to pick up your rifle and have it automatically go into your shoulder in the right position. once you know your rifle like its an extra arm then move onto more indepth things like acquiring your sights, and target faster and shooting faster. but if you cant do it slowly at first you will never be good at it at a faster pace. just practice practice practice!!
also take note. there is a big difference between CQB accuracy and that of just target, or plinking accuracy. when your target or plinking your genrally going for slower more accurate bullseye hits. when going for CQB there is a term called combat accuracy. you are going for all of your shots hitting a much larger vital area than just a bullseye.
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
