tHE PERFECT PISTOL SHOT BLOG
Everybody wants to be able to shoot their handgun accurately and quickly. Accuracy comes from the disciplined study of marksmanship. Speed largely comes from repetitive execution of perfect shots. However, there is a technique to reduce your multiple shot shooting-time by half. The technique is simply controlling forward trigger travel after each shot. You might think that such a slight movement would make little difference in actual time, which is partially true, but in terms of shooting-time comparisons, the time savings is astounding. Here's how it works: The trigger on your service grade handgun will travel forward much further than is necessary to reset itself for the next shot. Training yourself to stop the forward motion of the trigger immediately upon reaching the "reset point" will cut the average shooter's multiple shot time by half. In the The Perfect Pistol Shot, I discuss this, and other easy-to-learn techniques for improving your shooting.
