The number of Americans using handguns as a form of personal protection has never been higher, but alarmingly, this has lead to more and more people not understanding even the basics of handgun accuracy.
Tim Schmidt from DeltaMedia has watched this worrying trend over the past few years, and he has decided that it is time to take action. He gathered some of the finest minds in the industry, and has compiled a series of tips and useful information that aims to dramatically improve the handgun owner's personal safety.
Mr Schmidt added "we all share one common belief, and that is an unyielding perception of the value of human life. We carry deadly weapons to protect our own lives, and the lives of loved ones. We all understand evil, and we recognize the reality that there will always be violence. We know that bad things do indeed happen to good people. We all agree that if you are going to carry a weapon with the intent of using it to preserve life, it is always better to have a higher level of proficiency with that weapon than a lower level of proficiency.
Of all the ways to be proficient with your pistol, none are as important as being able to accurately hit what you're aiming at."
The ground-breaking report, entitled '107+ Accuracy Secrets,' harvests knowledge from hundreds of years, and some of the finest pistol handlers in the world. They cover topics such as sight alignment, trigger control, grip techniques, shooting well under pressure, and how to cure the dreaded flinch.
Below are a sample of seven simple, yet highly effective tips from '107+ Accuracy Secrets' report.
1 - It is normal for the sights to wobble a bit when you are holding your firearm on target. Accept that fact. The wobble is a normal event.
2 - No shooter will shoot their best without a gun that fits their hand.
3 - Hold the gun about as hard as you would hold a hammer to drive a nail.
4 - At first, the ability to shoot long ranges with a pistol might not seem like a feat worth mastering… but think about this: Imagine getting good with your pistol at extreme distances. Now picture how much easier a shot at close ranges would seem!
5 - Handling the gun's recoil is by far the most important accuracy variable - its huge effect on accuracy is because the bullet is still in the barrel during the recoil.
6 - You owe it to yourself to work to become at least reasonably as effective with your weak / off hand as you are with your strong hand!
7 - Never back pedal. You will always lose… Your adversary will be able to move forward much faster than you can move backwards.
So there you have it, seven tips you can start using right away.
There is no doubt that the debate of gun ownership will continue, but one thing that cannot be disputed is that gun owners should know how to use and handle their weapons. This guide goes a long way to solving this issue.
