Get Comfortable Handling Your Gun
When it comes to improving your accuracy, first you need to start getting as familiar as possible with your guns. This is especially true for anyone who hasn’t spent much time around firearms.
The key is to empty your guns, spend time holding them, educate yourself about how to break them down, clean them, and practice aiming when you’re at home.
The more familiar you become with handling your gun, the more comfortable you will be when it comes time to load your weapon and aim it at a target. This will also help you not be afraid of your firearm in situations where other marksmen are firing around you.
Perfect Your Grip
Understanding how to grip your weapon correctly is one of the most important aspects of improving accuracy. The key is to grip your gun tightly to help control recoil and get the muzzle of the gun back on target as quickly as possible after firing a round.
Fortunately, it’s easy to practice your grip at home. This will help it become second nature every time you pick up your gun.
Focus On Your Stance
Your stance is equally as crucial as your grip. The key is to make sure both of your feet are firmly on the ground and spread about shoulder-width apart. Then lean forward slightly.
The more you practice combining proper stance with the correct grip, the more efficient and accurate you’ll be at the shooting range.
Many newbies make the mistake of jerking the trigger of their gun when firing at a target. The key to good trigger control is to apply pressure as slowly as possible. This will reduce muzzle movement during the shot.
Dry-Fire Your Gun
Don’t be afraid to dry-fire your weapon. This is simply the practice of aiming your gun and pulling the trigger while the firearm is unloaded.
Dry-fire is a safe way to go through the motions of firing a gun without actually discharging the weapon.
Control Your Breathing
Proper breathing is another important element of shooting a gun. The key is to inhale, pause, fire the weapon, and then release the breath. This will help keep the muzzle as steady as possible while aiming.
Live-Fire at a Gun Range
These shooting accuracy tips will help improve your shooting whether you are a seasoned pro or a first time shooter. The best way to put them into practice is to shoot live rounds at an indoor gun range. This will help you put these tips into action and get a feel for your gun when firing rounds.
