Olympic shooting is so much more than trying to shoot as many 10s as possible. A shooter needs to be physically and mentally fit to overcome all the pressures that can arise on the shooting line. In order to achieve that they need to be well-organized and develop a more comprehensive approach.

Shooting Notes are just one part of this scheme helping shooters to plan and analyze their individual shooting sessions, as well as their whole season better. This shooting book contains an introduction into how to begin writing and analyzing your shooting, basic guidelines for setting goals and building shooting routines, as well as ready-made forms to be filled out at every practice/competition.

The notebook is designed for beginners and advanced shooters of all ages and disciplines. This does not mean it will win competitions and set up new records on its own. It will, however, guide shooters in analyzing their shooting in the most efficient way, encouraging them to focus on the good and on finding solutions, instead of dwelling on the negatives.

Why journaling is important?

  • A simple technique for every shooter to use, master and keep in order to be able to develop.
  • Making you be more attentive and not forget things.
  • Allowing you to follow your progress and plan your next steps.
  • A part of mental practice

What’s Inside:

  • Writing Goals – Being well-organized can help shooters reach a higher level more quickly. Shooting Notes encourage the shooter to sit down before the season and think about their short- and long-term goals.
  • Rifle/Pistol/Position Settings – Gathering information on the particularities of your rifle/pistol and your position in one place makes it easier to keep track of the progress and adjust settings. When every change is noted, it is easier to return back to the previous setting if it proves more optimal.
  • Technical Steps – Having a well-established technical routine is a prerequisite when changing anything from weapon settings to position settings. It is not enough to only keep such info in your mind as unused data gets forgotten quickly.
  • Mental Approach – Every shooter who strives to do better knows that they should pay attention to the mental aspect of the sport. Psychological routines from preparing for the practice/competition to coping with stress during it must be set up and followed.
  • Shooting Analysis – Everything you need to know about the shooting analysis – why write it and what to write. It explains how to fill out ready-made forms in a way that helps the shooter grow and develop shooting skills in the right direction.
  • Ready-Made Forms – The main goal of writing the shooting analysis is not to ponder over emotions, but to objectively think about the technical and mental approach to shooting. Ready-made forms are designed to guide the shooter after each practice/competition to think and write in such a way.

Make every practice count by writing your personal shooting analysis. Monitor your progress and see yourself improve!


Aiming Art

Meeting at the local home range, the minutes spent preparing to step to the line were never quiet! Incredible, but we could always find a shooting-related topic to chat about. We realized that everything can be discussed, from the soles of your shooting boots to why lighting is so bad at shooting position 21. Years of practice went by, years of talking to professional coaches and shooters, years of reading books about sport shooting, and years of writing our own performance log finally led us to the creation of Shooting Notes. After three seasons of refining, improving, and perfecting it, we decided to show it to other shooters. In Slovenia, we sold out the first edition of Strelski zvezek in only one season and our international shooting friends persuaded us to translate it into other languages. Shortly after, the English version came out, followed by the German Schießheft and the Spanish Cuaderno de Tiro. A season later, the French Cahier de Tir was launched. We are already preparing the second editions and are very eager to share them with you. Along with planning, analysing, and trying to shoot a ten as many times as possible, sport shooting requires mental and physical readiness as well as the right tactics to combine everything. We decided to share our overall approach to shooting through Practical Pointers. The right balance between all these areas is a real art, and when, on the most important competition, everything comes together and all of the steps align, it’s nothing short to a masterpiece. We call it the Aiming Art. In October 2020, Aiming Art held its first Shooting Academy. In two weekends, 31 young shooters took part in our program aiming to introduce them to a wholesome approach to shooting. As we are well aware of how important it is to be provided with an encouraging and stimulating environment, we hope to do many more Academies for shooters on various levels in the future. Shooting Notes, Practical Pointers, and the Shooting Academy are just the beginning. We promise to continue developing, adding discoveries, sharing new insights, and in this way contributing to the shooting sport in the hope to help shooters reach their higher potential. Aim high with us and create your own art. Find us Živa Dvoršak with the Rifle
