The Basics

I’ve been perusing ‘gun media’ since the early 70’s  Back then, magazines and books, then, switching largely in the 90’s to this new-fangled Internet thing.

And many things have changed.

The preferred sidearm (for some perhaps – semiautomatic over revolver, or plastic over steel), the preferred stance (Isosceles over Weaver), the preferred caliber (9mm over .45 ACP), holster material (Kydex over leather).

Back then too, at least most of us trusted our government.

Times have changed.

But some things remain constant.

THE BASICS

Distilled down even further then The Modern Technique of The Pistol(!)

(from Mad Ogre, in part)

Only YOU know what your sight picture looked like the instant your shot broke.  Only YOU know what that trigger pull felt like.  Only YOU know what you did wrong.  YOU have to be honest with yourself.  If you want to get better, you have to start with your own internal honesty here.  Put down the pride, and admit to yourself you are not doing everything you need to be doing to achieve consistent accuracy.

Front Sight Focus – Trigger Pull.

Those 2 things.   You get those two things right – everything else falls into place and you’ll have tighter shot groups.

This also applies to rifle shooting as well.

AMEN, brother!
