  • Holding the Weapon

    The way you hold your handgun actually affects your accuracy. If you are not holding it properly, you may either shoot to the right or left without even realizing it. You need to have the grip of the weapon cantered in your hand in order to fire on target; this can be tricky when first starting out but eventually it will become natural.

  • Sights

    In order to hit your target, you have to aim using the sights on the weapon. Learning how to use this in order to effectively hit targets at varying ranges is important. Also, adjusting your sights is critical for the accuracy of your weapon. A common way to adjust your sights is to use a laser in the barrel of the gun and aim at a target, then adjust the sights until they line up with the laser. There are also varying kinds of sights you can use from optical sights to scopes.

  • Trigger Control

    When you fire too quickly, you will end up spraying your bullets all over the target. In order to ensure precise and accurate shots, you have to control the speed that you fire your weapon to make sure you stay on target.

Hand guns are not that difficult to use and with a few hours of practice, you will definitely master it. It is important to learn how to use a handgun, as it has many uses from self-defense to recreation.
