Arrows of any level always ask: “How to shoot faster?”
For athletes, “faster” is a high hit factor. For tactical shooters and law enforcement officers, “faster” can mean the difference between life and death. In both cases, the goals are different.
What does speed mean? What does accuracy mean?
We’ve been striving for accuracy for the first time. Knock down a knock down Our first instructor was the el. After we confidently hit the distance.
Accuracy is where you are aiming.
Above, I’m highlighted with quotes because of the situation. For a few minutes, it’s “fast,” it’s “fast.”
The same applies to shooting. The speed depends on the situation and the task. Simply put accurate shots on targets targets, avoiding blunders and mistakes.
So what’s more important, speed or accuracy?
The answer is that they are equivalent to the situation. There is an old saying – “but it is speed“But it is not the truth. But it is not the truth. But it is not the truth. It was not a fight for the first shot.
Chicken or egg?
What comes first – speed or accuracy?
You aim shoot as fast as possible, hitting the target? Do you carefully “heal” at 25 meters?
It will be your choice. Only fast aiming, only fast shooting. Careful aiming and “knocking out 10” will make you a sharp, but slow shooter.
So where is the starting point? Master instructor Massad Ayub
In other words, it all comes down to the basics. “Grind” the basics, bringing them to perfection. Then increase the speed of the movement. How much time will it take? I’m not sure what you’re looking for.
1. Make sure the store fits securely into place.2. Change the store at eye level. See the store and save peripheral vision.3. With a “tactical” shift, you must first grab the new store.4. It is very important not to look down from the goal.
Start with the three pillars of basic training: removal of weapons, aiming and weapon manipulations (recharge and eliminate delays). It doesn’t matter how much you’re slowing down. An experienced instructor and training
As for the instructor: experience is nice. But it can be taught. My goal is to find an approach for each student. Each shooter has a different level of training. It is important to carefully work out the elements of each of the above mentioned bases separately. After that, and increase speed.
A good instructor will see shooter shoots faster than he can. He will intervene and teach the descent. Order to identify mistakes in shooting point to arrows
We learn from our mistakes. Let us know when we have exceeded our limits, and tell us about it. Again, we’re looking for a neutralize the target.
Tactical version of optimal speed
If you are on the Internet? Most of the security forces are not engaged speed shooting. Is it important? Or does it only interfere?
I heard that there was some hardened fire training. It’s true? It’s not up to you. tactical shooting. But it’s really complement each other.
1. If you feel like you are a barrier.2. Grip the pistol grip tightly while it is still in its holster.3. After removing the weapon from the holster, direct it to the target.
We will discuss how they differ.
Speed training sports shooting more dynamic than in the case defense shooting. When a novice athlete shooter is engaged, he has few reasons for the adrenaline rush. It is a clear sign that the shooter will not be able to move.
No sport shoot So, if you do not threaten you with anything. Move it through, exercise, recharge anywhere, without fear of being shot down. Even in IDPA, For the inappropriate use of shelter.
The trainings. There are few or no surprises at the exercises. You can plan your passage in advance. In fact, it is a key point.
But it’s not the patrol or on the street.
When we meet you, you can’t make it out of sight.
Ultimately, with the best result. AT tactical shooting The goal is to eliminate the danger and stay alive. Are you tactical shooter, or solemnly focused on how you can train. Because there is no difference in basic training between tactical and sports shooting, and certain compromises are needed to succeed in one direction or another.
AT sports shooting Arrowheads, Omni Sights, Number of Spare Stores. They are not subject to law enforcement officers or armed citizens.
AT defense shooting there are also nuances to the choice of weapons. For example, Glock compared with M1911 less reliable. Have Sig tight descent to prevent accidental operation. This is a 9-caliber cartridge compared to the larger ones.
4. Unlike the sports world.5. It is always necessary to control the “aiming picture”.
It is required to become a professional. It can be carried out, however, it can be carried out effectively. But they are experienced enough to understand the differences between these two disciplines. It is a good idea to learn about it.
However, there is no difference. Ultimately, shooting is shooting. The three main pillars are common between these disciplines: removal of weapons, aiming and weapon manipulations (this is recharging and eliminating delays).
Skills will dramatically slow the arrow.
Pursuing speed shooting, I concluded that the advantages of the competition outweigh the disadvantages. If you wear weapon for self defense It is your responsibility to ensure that you can’t make a difference.
Competition and more than just shooting in the dash. Adrenaline rush is fueled by the sound of a timer. It is a dynamic level of agility. Shooting under these factors increases the heart rate, which can mimic the “fire contact” state.
Remember the three “pillars” of basic training:the removal of weapons, aiming and manipulation of weapons (reloading and elimination of delays).
Competitions also give you instant feedback on your progress. They are an excellent educational tool. It is a good measure to use. But more importantly – progress of your basic skills are progressing – takeaway, shooting, manipulations – over time.
Physiology of speed
So let’s go back to the burning question: How to shoot fast?
First, you need it. For safeguarding the weapon. Fast removal. The Holster plays the first shot.
Speed is not an end in itself. It must be accompanied by accuracy. Accuracy comes from the sequence of muscle memories. Quickly pull the trigger is not difficult. The trigger. Split time will be unthinkable. It’s not a problem. The problem is usually in the visual and psychological readiness for them.
In his book “Practical Shooting: The Basics»Brian Enos discusses the importance of visual readiness. “He wrote.”
In other words, correct aiming picture – “Eye – target” and “aiming devices – target”. In order to shoot quickly, the shooter must “get” the right. aim picture adjusting the sights of your pistol against the target.
When we are dealing with several goals – “attackers”, or moving from target to target. It is a “dead time”. In other words, you are not shooting.
Make up the most of the shelter
There are several targets in a row. It will be possible to minimize the amount of “dead time”.
According to statistics, an average police officer uses a distance of 1.5 to 3 meters. This is the distance of the outstretched arm. I had to see it.
My good friend who served in S.W.A.T. for more than 25 years, he said,
“I didn’t see the sighting devices … Firstly, it was far away, and secondly, I shot a reflex. The following five shots I fired with the target image. The distance was decent … 20 meters or more … Here it is a BL … Ti! … front sight, front sight, front sight, front sight, squeezing … well, maybe a bit more “Here is the BL … Ti!” Between shots … “
He wanted to keep his first two misses. This lesson he learned for life.
What is more important – speed or accuracy?
Sport tells you what they are both important. However, in the real world tactical shooting balance depends on the situation. Sometimes you need to make a shot. If it is up to 3 meters, it’s a perfect aiming picture. Time and be precise. At 20 meters, if you do not see the sights, you miss.
Traditional police training, which is based solely on stress factors, is inadequate. There are direct numbers of hits.
I’m bad shooters. It doesn’t reflect the use of firearms by employees. It’s not the case. shooting in motion. Supplementing traditional marks with elements high-speed shooting may contribute to improved survival.
Grip, stance and aiming.
A familiar instructor once said: “He will emerge victorious.” Better not tell.
Finally, speed shooting – this is the same acquired skill as accurate shooting, and the learning process is the same. If you just “knock out 10”, then slightly increase rate of fire, an arrow of freedom. Experienced instructor, tune in for training and have fun. Only in this way you will become a good shooter.
