Pistol Fundamentals - Part III - SIGHT ALIGNMENT
Pistol Fundamentals - Part II - THE TRIGGER
Now...here comes where many people mess up! When your sights are aligned and on the target, your sights will be slightly moving around.
This movement is called the arc of movement and everyone hast it, even the very best shooters in the world have movement in their sights, but with practice you can reduce that amount of movement.
Pistol Fundamentals - Part I - THE GRIP
To make an accurate shot, when your sights are aligned and your grip is right, you have to pull the trigger smooth and straight back. Period. End of story. Sounds simple enough, right? Well let's talk about some factors that prevent you from obtaining a smooth and straight back trigger pull.
What it means to be SAFE, SKILLED and SECURE.
Ever wonder why some people shoot really good and others do not?
What makes them fast and accurate while others struggle just to hit the target no matter how much time they have?
What to know about personal protection.
I know it may sound like I’m beating the dead horse with this one but gun safety is the single most important factor in gun ownership. You may think this is so basic you don’t need to read this, but not everyone shoots competition, has grown up around firearms or has been taught proper gun handling.
It doesn’t matter if you carry every single day, keep a gun in your vehicle or keep on the top shelf of your closet for home defense. Gun safety must be hardwired into your brain and these points are super straightforward
My Top 5 Concealed Carry Pistols
Pay attention all the times. If you did have to use your firearm in a violent encounter, do you practice rapid shots at very close ranges? 2 feet 4 feet 6 feet 8 feet 10 feet, so on and so forth. Draw and shoot from the hip at 2 feet? Will you have time to see the sights at 2-10 feet, probably not.
If you practice and train regularly you might be able to see the sights at 10-20 feet.
Whatever you carry is up to you, just make sure your firearm is reliable and you practice with it.
Also, if you are going to carry…….carry concealed. If you’re not a uniformed law enforcement, no one wants to see a pistol on your hip in the grocery store or gas station or restaurant or retail store. Like stop.
