The First Steps Are Always The Hardest.

I am continually amazed at how much bad advice there is out there when it comes to helping people shooting more gooder with a pistol. Yelling “Front sight! Front sight!” over and over again to someone not shooting well means little if the person behind the trigger doesn’t understand that what you mean is “Watch what the front sight is doing in relationship to the rear sights before, during and after you press the trigger.”

We wouldn’t expect a blindfolded quarterback to be able to throw the ball accurately *, so why do we expect people to shoot well when they can’t predict their shots will hit before they pull the trigger?

More thoughts on this over on Ricochet.com.
