Gun-fighting is so much more than just putting holes through a target. If you’re going to be using your weapon for personal defense, it’s always a good idea to incorporate moving in your training. We’re talking about accurately shooting a gun while in motion, a technique that must be taught, learned, and mastered.
While it makes sense to shoot from a stationary position, a moving target is harder to hit. The problem is that moving while shooting also hampers your accuracy.
While running full speed and blasting away looks easy in the movies, it’s actually a great way to waste ammunition and possibly hit something, or someone, for which you’re not aiming. Always remember, you are responsible for every single bullet that comes out of your gun.
In Guns & Ammo’s video entitled Personal Defense: Shooting on the Move, Richard Nance offers expert advice when shooting while moving. We have included the video for you below, but you can always see the full post here.
The key to mastering these movements is practice. Unfortunately, many ranges are not set up to allow movement when shooting, but here at BSR, Inc., we offer Intermediate and Advanced Firearms Training courses, which enable the student to effectively engage threats under a variety of conditions and employ a pistol in a tactical environment. These skills are taught using challenging but practical drills focusing on skills that can be applied in real-life situations.
