Default A challenge if you dare!

For a youngish guy that competes with three different guns running around hammering steel and paper with unlimited round count, firing a pistol while standing still with one hand sounds like a snooze fest! AND IT WAS, until I saw my target after the first slow fire. Only 6 out of 10 rounds found the paper much less the x ring. Humbled I started to listening to pros and found out I had no idea how to grip a pistol with one hand much less two, and donít even get me started on how poor trigger control was.

We are all looking for the edge in any completive sport, and we all take something different away from every range session, but what can you take away from the top shooters of another discipline? This is my secret weapon in 3 gun, I ask the long range precision guys scope questions. I ask skeet guys how to shoot clays with my ugly tactical shotgun. The bulls eye shooters offer up advise for precision with the pistol while the defensive trainers can teach you a blazing draw stroke. Want a light recoil pistol round, ask a cowboy action shooter. So, if you dare take my challenge post something you learned after shooting out of your comfort zone.

Exclamation

Diffrent shotgun shells patern very diffrently out of the same choke. Was just reminded of this recently. Thear is VOODO in how you load ammo ,cleen your guns (What is this cleening thang you speek of? ) . 99% of shooting any compition is mental ......Rember the VOODO......

Like 3gun4fun I think there's a lot to be learned from different disciplines because shooting is shooting. One thing that has helped me is something I learned from an M class competition friend of mine is that efficiency is King, and cutting out any useless, unnecessary motion in things like draw stroke, reloads etc. will make you a much quicker shooter.

Default Shooting faster is not the answer

When I started competitive shooting, I thought I would need to learn how to pull the trigger faster in order to get better. What I know today is that anybody can learn to shoot fast, but never finish well at a match. The key is to shoot sooner, not faster. I want to be the first person to the last target in a stage. If I can do that and be accurate, I will be happy with the result.
