Stance: One of the most critical aspects that affect the accuracy of your shot is your shooting stance. Often people say that you should choose a position that you are comfortable with, but that could change your accuracy ultimately. Adjusting your stance to give you comfort as well as to be able to hit the center of the target can be achieved by taking a few measures.
● Ensure your arms are stretched entirely and is away from your chest which means it is not locked.
● Your shoulder blades should be relaxed and placed away from the ears.
● Shoulders should not be in line with the hips but away from it. Your body should be a little forward from the shoulder.
● Make sure your body is balanced when you are taking a shot and do not lean back.
● Ensure that you can control the body against a recoil post triggering the firearm.
Dry firing: Most shooters want to practice and improve their accuracy using live shells as they believe that it is the best way to enhance their expertise. That may be true, but you can still get a great practice session even without it too. You should first practice the stance you will be using and later improve shooting ability without any bullets i.e. the gun should be empty and use dry firing. Especially if you have a new weapon or new to shooting itself, it is better to start with a blank gun as you get a feel for it and moreover there will be no recoil. There will also be no distraction of the sound created by the live bullets. By dry firing, you can improve your stance as well as holding the gun and body balance using dry firing. Also, it is recommended you invest on a laser sight to find out where you are aiming which will help in knowing and fixing your hand alignment issues.
Safety: Safety of you and the people around you while you are shooting should be high on your priority checklist. To become a shooter and that too a safe one, you should know the weapon you own very well as you would not want to harm you or anyone without knowing the usage. Also, follow all the safety rules and even all the features that the firearm has at the shooting range. It takes time to learn all the characteristics of a weapon entirely and should not be ignored says expert. Familiarize with your gun and then begin practice.
