Default silhouette shooting

USMC-NAV,you didn't give up on silhouette did you?When is your next match?
What is your strategy for improvement.
More advice to take or leave.Since this game is standing offhand.I suggest starting at the bottom with good footwear.
A solid boot but comfortable has always helped me.I've seen everything from barefoot,flipflops,sneakers but i can sense a wobble in anything but a boot with some ankle support.

Thanks for the replies and for the helpful suggestions. I think my hits were somewhat luck as I had the Mossberg M44 but the scope is offset about 1 inch to the left so as to not to drill the receiver and "kentucky windage" was applied as called by my spotter. I would like to continue but may move the scope over to a rifle that wouldn't have an offset.
I am sure I will try again as they only have one match per month.

More info;dry firing is good when actual range time is limited.
It helps with trigger control and reduces target acquisition time and wobble area.
