    Really impossible to tell anything from the video. How did the target look, you look like you are jerking the trigger. You also seem to be flinching in anticipation of the shot. Shooting downhill is tough, the gun should be level and in a direct line from your dominant eye. Posture seems a little stiff, square your shoulders to the target, keep the elbows down and don't squeeze the gun so much (muscles in your left arm look strained) Use the left hand to help control the recoil, the gun is bouncing around in your hand. Get the right hand and thumb higher up, thumbs should be parallel and neutral, i.e. don't push the gun to the right with the thumbs.

    Oh Yeah...eye and ear protection man!

    Other than that you look good to go...:p

    Good for you for looking to improve. Start by working on your stance. Watch your video and then watch George:
