Breathing gets a lot of attention when people want to learn how to shoot farther than most people think is possible. It is important as a fundamental of marksmanship but it is actually a lot simpler to do properly than some of the other fundamentals. All you really need to do as a new shooter learning how to shoot long range with regard to breathing is adopt a method of breathing that allows for consistency, and break your shot at the same point in the breathing cycle. Sounds easy, right? It is! The problem is the ‘grandpappy’ methods that a lot of people learn growing up.
