Because unlike leisure endeavors’, shooting is literally either hit or miss. There is no, close enough when it comes to taking low percentage shots in a high-stress environment. This means not only a strong foundation in the shooting fundamentals, but performing the fundamentals exceedingly well – it takes Virtuosity.
