Precision Handgun Shooting – Yes It’s Possible!

This video takes an in-depth look at ways to shoot a handgun that yield the best accuracy and the things you should avoid. If you want to shoot with great precision this video is worth your time, especially if you are using a magnum. Simulations are used to illustrate the main points and give you an understanding of why the counter-intuitive method of committed-trigger-pull used by bullseye shooters results in superior accuracy and why you should avoid, at all costs, picking a time for the gun to go off.

I loved this video, thank you! A wonderful, sober look at precision handgun shooting without the usual tactical posturing and pretense you see on many channels. I’ve also been wanting to get a Colt-clone revolver for years now, but friends had talked me out of it, saying it isn’t practical. But that’s clearly nonsense. I’m not a fan of modern revolvers but have always been drawn to the old 1873-type revolvers. It’s comforting to see that any firearm is only as good as its operator, but when its operator excels, then there’s no problem. 🙂

I’ve shot a few 1.5, 1.75″ 100 yard groups with my 686 8 3/8″ barrel off a rest, usually about 3 inches though. So I know handguns can be precise. But over the years, I kept getting worse at shooting the long barrelled handgun. Now I like the 66 with a 2.5 inch barrel, or my full size 1911.

Good video, thanks!

Great video. I’m sure there are a lot of people who can use these tips and techniques. The biggest tip would be to practice a LOT. Dry fire practice can be done at home, and should be practiced often. The more live fire practice that a person can get is also helpful. Shooting is a perishable skill. I know this from the times that I practiced dry fire twice a day, and 4-5 live fire practices per week, to only getting in a few dry fire practices a month, and maybe one live fire practices per month. I’m not 1/10… Read more »

Hey dude. great instruction, I’m a veteran of High power service rifle, service pistol EIC, Bullseye outdoor handgun, indoor international small bore handgun, large-bore handgun silhouette (By the way, Nice 10 inch Smith silhouette pistol you have). there is a book of old NRA articles called the “The pistol shooters treasury”, it is a great book, even for the experienced shooter as readding it keeps you sharpened up. people think handguns are inaccurate because they are used to tighter groups from a rifle. this tends to lead people in their belief in their early experiences with pistol shooting, once they… Read more »
