Don't forget about elbows and knees...

Handheld shooting doesn't necessarily mean without support. I do a lot of my handheld shooting sitting, kneeling or prone. Heck, you want to be at eye level in wildlife photography and that more often than not means getting low. And yes - just as with marksmanship - proper breathing and a light touch on the shutter button is key. A little technique and a little VR goes a long way. So much so that anything up to 400mm I actually prefer to shoot handheld and almost never have an issue with camera shake.
