Learning to shoot is a fun hobby, and every time you visit our range, you get a little better. If you feel like you have the hang of shooting a gun, but your aim is still a little off, these tips can help you improve your aim while you’re learning to shoot.

Learning to Shoot: Tips for Improving Your Aim

  • Although this may sound like a given, the best way to improve your aim while you’re learning to shoot is to focus on accuracy. Before sending your shots all the way down the range, see if you can keep them within a couple of inches of each other at closer range. Once you can do this, gradually send your targets out further.
  • How you pull the trigger on a gun has a big impact on your aim and ability to send the bullet in a straight line. Always pull the trigger firmly and refrain from jerking the gun or flinching when you do this. Quick movements in your wrist and hand can decrease your accuracy and your aim.
  • Just like the way you pull the trigger, the way you stand when you shoot a gun can affect how well you hit the target. When you practice at our range, keep your feet about shoulder width apart. If you shoot with your right hand, keep your left foot slightly forward and your right foot slightly backward.

Like with anything, the best way to improve your aim when you’re learning to shoot is to practice. Contact us today to schedule a time to come and shoot at our range!
