I know its fun to go to the range and burn up a lot of ammunition. However, think about working on one or two particular skills each time you go to the range.
Some examples would be to work on
- marksmanship (always),
- developing a smooth and efficient presentation (draw),
- shooting from various forms of concealment,
- shooting from unconventional shooting positions (seated, from the ground, etc),
- strong hand only,
- weak hand only,
- and so on.
The purpose and benefit are to develop your shooting skills in a variety of ways so you will be better prepared in the event you need to use your handgun in a defensive situation. Note…these concepts work well with rifles and shotguns too.
