How To Shoot A Handgun Accurately




” “I want you to do an article on how to shoot a handgun accurately,” Dave Duffy told me. “Make it 2,500 or 3,000 words.”

  Long ago, I would have answered, “Sure, and while I’m at it, how about a history of the world in, oh, 10,000 words or so?”

  Today, with more than 45 years of handgunning behind me (yeah, I’m old, but I started early, too) I realize that you actually can cover this topic in a fairly short article. The reason is found in the classic statement of Ray Chapman, the first world champion of the combat pistol. “Shooting well is simple,” Ray said, “it just isn’t easy.”

  I’ll buy that. It’s true that the handgun is the most difficult of firearms to shoot well. There’s less to hang on to. There’s a shorter radius between the front and rear sight than with a rifle, meaning a greater unnoticed human error factor in aiming. You don’t have that third locking point on the shoulder that you have with a long gun’s butt stock.

  And few handguns have the inherent mechanical accuracy of a good rifle.

  That said, though, you can get the most of your handgun’s intrinsic accuracy by simply performing marksmanship basics correctly. If the gun is aimed at the target, and the trigger is pressed and the shot released without moving the gun, then the bullet will strike the mark. That simple. We need a few building blocks to construct this perfect shot, however. Let’s build the structure brick by brick. “

How To Drive On The Beach—Without Getting Stuck



” Driving on hard-packed beach sand, like at Daytona Beach, is a piece of cake. Any car will do, because the moisture in the sand keeps it cohesive. The biggest problem you might have is leaving the car parked until the tide comes in. Loose, fluffy sand, however, is a more difficult proposition. Here are tips for driving on all types of sand.

– The first thing to do in any kind of vehicle is to let the air out of the tires. Drop the pressure to levels way, way too low to use on pavement. Twelve to 15 psi is good—less if you have narrow, high-profile tires. This increases the tire’s footprint, allowing it to float over the sand instead of digging a trench.  “







Reading An Ammunition Label Can Seem Like An Exercise In Code Breaking. Here Are A Few Tips To Help You Wade Through What You See On The Dealer’s Shelf.



” So what should you do if you need to buy ammunition, but shooting is not your forte? The best way to avoid the expense and frustration of buying the wrong ammunition is to know what you are looking for before heading out to the sporting goods store. Most modern firearms have the ammunition type stamped on them in a visible location. Usually it’s somewhere on the barrel or the frame. If you have a gun that doesn’t have clear ammunition markings, then take it to an experienced gunsmith to properly identify the right ammunition.

The same caliber and cartridge information stamped on the gun will be included on an ammunition box label, even if it is a bit cryptic. The following tips will help you determine what information a label provides, and how to identify differences in cartridges of the same caliber. This is not an exhaustive ammunition guide, but it should be enough information to get you through a trip to the store.”

Keep Tech in Perspective

” These days it is common to see families barreling down the interstate with each kid wrapped in headphones and lost in a movie or video game. There’s no question that DVD players, game devices, and the like can make long drives easier, but all this distraction comes at a price. When will these kids learn to whine and squabble like my generation did? Seriously, though, think twice before using digital entertainment as a universal kid silencer. Turning on the DVD player every time children get slightly restless is a bit like pacifying them with big, sugary drinks; over time they will demand that any hint of boredom be immediately washed away with a flood of empty-calorie entertainment.”

So, You Want to Bury Your Guns?



” The decision to cache your weapons is a very personal decision and my friend is only okay with me sharing his story with a couple hundred thousand interested readers today because, well, because of none of your business. But I tell his story here because it helps illustrate a greater point: a secret is a secret until it isn’t.

If you ever plan on burying your survival treasure, you do well to remember the old adage, “loose lips, sink ships.” If you tell just two really good friends, expect them to tell at least two of their most trusted friends and don’t be too surprised when you find a stranger telling you about a bunch of guns buried in the west corner lot of your grand-daddy’s apple orchard. Also realize that if the story of your guns is being told, inevitably someone listening will suggest finding them.”

“Speed and accuracy? Speed versus accuracy? Accurate speed?”

“There are so many ways to phrase these two elements in shooting. However, as in anything critical, these two components are always a priority. Think about it. Race car drivers have to be fast and accurate to win. All professional and Olympic athletes have to be accurate and fast to win. Shooting is no different. Hunting, competitive, defensive and combat shooting all have these two things in common: speed and accuracy.”
