A GOOD TRIG­GER AND GOOD SIGHTS HELP

Concealed Carry Hand Guns - - EXPERT’S CORNER -

To shoot well at any likely en­gage­ment dis­tance, a good trig­ger pull helps. As dis­tances get longer, good sights help a lot. Prac­tice helps at all dis­tances. Bring­ing the weapon into ac­tion quickly is most im­por­tant at close range, but shots should not be hur­ried. Prac­tice, prac­tice, prac­tice can help counter the ten­dency to hurry shots.

Nor­mally, un­der stress most shoot­ers tend to shoot high so when en­gag­ing at mid­dle dis­tances (i.e. 15 to 25 yards) aim­ing at the lower chest area when train­ing may help counter pulling shots high.

I train that with the use of small cal­iber hand­guns such as .22, .32 or .380 for close-range de­fense, zip­pers should be shot with the first round aimed at the lower chest, the se­cond at the up­per chest, and the third at the head. This puts mul­ti­ple rounds into an ad­ver­sary quickly and if shots go high, then at least two should still im­pact vul­ner­a­ble ar­eas.
