subject says it. do you think shooting skill is like learning how to ride a bike? being once you get it, it tends to stay with you forever. you get rusty, sure. but the skill stays with you. same with driving a car or surfing. or is the skill more like playing music? being when you stop playing, your skill diminishes. after a while you even forget what notes sound like (meaning you can't tell if a note is an E note or an F note). same with computers or chess. am i making sense to you?
