Made me think of another post someone put up a while back about being steady while shooting.

I gave up coffee for lent, im usually a pot and a half a day coffee drinker. First two days I had a headache but not too bad. I also noticed today that my hands are much steadier than when ive had a pot of coffee. Not sure I could permanently give up coffee an decaf aint my thing, but it would probably help my groups! Hoping to shoot some new loads this weekend guess we will see.

Getting off the caffein permanently does help groups. lol, but it's hard to do. I try to use caffeine as tool and use it when I need it.... but I seem to need it too much.

Yep, your hands get steadier but you can't sit still long enough to get solid. clap

Pretty much have given up caffine except maybe 1 Dr Pepper every 10 days or so. Can't say I can shoot better but I dang sure feel better after I got passed the headaches.

I would hate to see what my target would look like after a pot of coffee. Probably not a hole in it. confused2

You don't want me without coffee, no matter the situation. People at work no when I haven't had my coffee, they find it funny to push my buttons. Coffee is my biggest vice. Usually a cup every 2 hours and I'm just fine
