When you are all alone in your own little world and have no one to judge you, being the best shooter may not be important. However, many people who own a firearm think that their shot is simply the bomb. Today, we are encouraging you to see that regardless of how accurate and awesome your gun skills, look at the picture like it could always become better. Target practice is important for so many reasons and by adopting this idea of always seeking improvement, you can use practice shooting to your advantage. My friend got a new handgun from his wife as a birthday president and with this gun came a gun training class. The class allowed him and a friend to come and learn about firearm topics including how to load and fire the gun. I went along with him to the class and we both learned so much about firearms from that single class. Keep in mind that we both thought we knew enough about guns to stand up against the next guy, boy was we dead wrong on so many levels. It was like we started from scratch. I learned that so many people think that they are in the top 10% of firearm knowledge and most skilled when, to be honest, they are mediocre at best.
Now, no one is pointing fingers or saying that you fit into any categories, all we are saying is that by changing your attitude and practicing more, keeping up with education about the firearms you own and fire, you will feel better and more secure in your knowledge and improve your gun handling. After the class started to target shoot, I learned that I was slow on the loading, slow on the aim, draw, and fire. The thing that I found most awesome was the instructor took the time to educate me and continued practice allowed me to continue improving on all of these areas. Another thing that the instructor talked about in the firearms class was that all of these areas can be worked on in a safe environment which is the firing range. You can work on your holster adjustment, your loading the firearm, the draw, and the actual shot. These things become more important when you get into a real-world situation where you need to draw your firearm and grip it steady, aim, and fire. Let’s hope it never comes to it, but, what if your life or someone else’s life depended on how you handle your firearm? Could you master the skills needed? Practice makes perfect and when you are shooting at the range, just remember to work on all of these things and make them fun. As a final thought, all I am suggesting is that you address your skills and do whatever it takes to practice more and get better with each and every firearm your purchase and every shot you take.
