How To Shoot Faster

Post by g.willikers » Tue Jul 16, 2013 7:40 am

The first thing to know - the time it takes for the first shot, from the holster.
To be competitive, from the time the buzzer goes off, until the first round hits the target, should be well under the 1 second range.
Actually, closer to a half second.
Dry fire practice will get you there, but only with good technique.

Next is transitions, or moving from target to target.

Especially watch what parts of his body move and what doesn't.
No wasted motions, here.
