You have decided to join the firearm’s world and buy your first handgun. However, after the first tour, several shooters look at their guns long and hard and begin to wonder what is wrong with them. They look at their aim and see they have not fired the small bands at flashing speed as the internet people do. A gun is just a challenging tool for mastering. The radius of the vision is relatively small, and it isn’t easy to be accurate. Dating way back to America’s firearms sports history, it is noticeable firearms can also be full of fun while practicing.
Let us look at ways to practice firearms.
- At all times, keep the muzzle pointed in a safe track
It is the universal rule of defense. There will be practically no firearms accidents if everyone is so careful about handling a firearm that the muzzle never points something they did not intend to fire. Do not shoot something with your weapons, it’s so simple, and it’s your responsibility. It is especially important when a gun is loaded or unloaded. If an accidental release occurs, there will be no damage as the muzzle indicates a particular direction.
- Practice reloading your pistol
Although it may be useful to be conversant with a wide range of firearms, defensive training should mostly be done with one or two pistols (allowing for a primary and “back-up” pistol). This helps the body to store the working memory of the weapon. So, instead of thinking if the slide is locked, → press magazine release → magazine is clear → to grab a new magazine → insert a new magazine with a correct alignment → release slide. If you practice enough, the technique will become second nature, and just thinking is the slide locked back? → Refill pistol will get it all done while you can think about your present situation.
- Train yourself
Wisdom is worthless without experience. You can read it and even understand the tactical preparation methods, but it is pointless without carrying out the procedures. You will not use something that you do not have in your procedure memory in a gunfight. Before involving in a gun battle, you must practice all the exercises described here, find other activities, or build your own. It helps you to use more tricks in your trick kit.
- Front Sight Drill Brass
This exercise is based on trigger regulation and truly one of the best practices ever. Having a very smooth trigger press to make accurate shots is the best. You first unload and remove the magazine from our firearm. Take the hammer out of the slide. Now balance an empty cartridge over the front view. Once it has been mounted, aim the gun to a secure stop and click the trigger smoothly. The front sight does not sink or move, and you can retain the brass when done correctly. You jerk the trigger and create motion in the gun when the brass falls off. This is a mistaken shooting. A smooth continuous trigger press with a clean “split” at the end is the secret to keeping the brass balanced above your pistol.
