This is true and I practice every chance I get. When I first started, I couldn't sew a straight line. Now I can and do it as often as possible in order to maintain my skills. Why do law enforcement officers go to firing ranges? To make sure they still have control over their tool of the trade. I have friends who shoot 3X a week in order to stay sharp. Now in this world, do you want to screw up a $500 piece of leather because you have not been practicing? I don't think so.
