Good video. Consistent fundamentals makes good shooters.
There's a big piece of Natural Point Of Aim that missing from that entire video. The military definition of it is : Natural Point of Aim = Where the sights fall after recoil.
They went over and over adjusting the body before the shot, loading a bipod, closing your eyes in the final shooting position, and opening - to see where the sights fall. If they're not right on target, you adjust body position. Great vid on everything leading up to the shot, and that's 75% of the whole NPOA process.
The biggest part of NPOA was left out, and that's trigger control, and trigger follow through. NPOA = Where the sights fall after recoil. So, trigger follow through - you hold the trigger to the rear after you break the shot, you have the same tension on the grip as when you broke the shot, your body settles - where are the sights now? THAT is your NPOA for that shot. If you're off target, you adjust.
That's the primary reason trigger follow through is so important - if you just jerk the shot and let up - and don't follow through - you will never be able to check your NPOA.
