Focus on Particular Skills at the Range

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.
