Right angle

Dear mentors,

Please help me construct a correct sentence.

Here right means, correct.

1) It's all about pointing the right angle.
2) It's all about pointing at the right angle.

Let's suppose if I am holding a gun or a cue, which of the above is correct? If both are wrong then what is correct? However, I do not want to mention what (gun, cue or whatsoever) here.


Let's suppose, viewing things in life.

Here, "it's" may be replaced with 'Life is'.

By the way, can I write Life's instead of Life is?

Thank you.

    Using the word "pointing" and not wanting to say what you are pointing with or at, is an issue.
    Maybe you could say, "finding the right angle", or "using the right angle".

    Ref shortening Life is - it depends - if you it is a formal piece of writing, avoid using short forms.

    I was trying to make a caption/slogan for my snooker club and I want to use the word 'angle' in it. You now know the context, could you now help me with it?

    Game of angles?

    Snook the angles?

    Cue the angles?

    Can we say, games are all about pointing the right angle.

    Here, I do not want to say 'pointing cue' as I am talking games in general. Right angle means the correct angle.
    Is there anything better than this?
    Please help.

    A right angle is also the corner of a square @vocamania or 90 degrees.

    Yes, as you now understand my context can you suggest something.

    @vocamania Angle the cue?

    'To angle' can mean to direct or incline at an angle.
    "He angled his chair so that he could watch her."
    "Angle the cue to pot the ball."
