  10. 10. 5 POINTS of CONTACT to attain proper GRIP. 1. The V-shape formed by your thumb and index finger is placed on the GRIP SAFETY. 2. The heel of the palm must touch the MAIN SPRING HOUSING. 3. The three fingers is wrapped on the front strap. 4. The thumb rest on the SAFETY LEVER. 5.

WEAVER B. Two-hand Shooting Stance Types of Shooting Stance A. One-hand Shooting Stance (Precision Stance)

Sight Picture </li></ul><ul><li>- Relationship of front sight and rear sight and aiming point. </li></ul>NOTE: FRONT SIGHT CLEAR CORRECT SIGHT PICTURE “ Our eyes can only focus to one (1) object at a time; focus on the tip your FRONT SIGHT!” WOBBLE and WOBBLE AREA REAR SIGHT and AIMING POINT is blurred.
  16. 16. “ EMPTY-LUNG TECHNIQUE” TRIGGER PRESS SHOOT HOLD BREATH NATURAL RESPERATORY PAUSE when firing at a single target: NOTE: NATURAL POINT OF AIM (NPA) - The most relaxed position for holding a pistol where the sight picture will consistently go back to the aiming point in a natural manner. 4. BREATH CONTROL – To attain accuracy, the firer must learn to hold his breath properly at any time during the breathing cycle .
  17. 17. “ QUARTERS-FULL TECHNIQUE” TRIGGER PRESS SHOOT TARGET HOLD TRIGGER PRESS SHOOT TARGET when firing at multiple targets: NOTE: NATURAL POINT OF AIM (NPA) - The most relaxed position for holding a pistol where the sight picture will consistently go back to the aiming point in a natural manner.
  18. 18. 5. TRIGGER PRESS – The independent movement of the trigger finger in applying increasing pressure on the trigger straight to the rear, without disturbing the sight alignment until the weapon fires. Types of Trigger Motion 1. Interrupted Trigger Motion- Commonly used during Precision Shooting. NOTE: TRIGGER PRESSURE POINT is the contact between the trigger and trigger finger; usually located between the tip of the Index finger and the first joint. 2. Uninterrupted Trigger Motion- Commonly used during Practical Shooting and Multiple target engagement 0 1 4 2 3 6 lbs - 1 4 2 3 5 0 1 4 2 3 6 lbs -
  19. 19. FOLLOW THROUGH – is the continues application of all marksmanship fundamentals BEFORE, DURING and AFTER firing a live round. CALLING THE SHOT - is the ability of the shooter to determine the Point of Impact (POI) of the projectile with respect to his Point of Aim (POA). This can only be achieved by determining the FINAL FOCUS POINT (exact location of the sight picture at the instant the weapon fires) ESTABLISHING A SYSTEM OF FIRING ONE (1) ROUND 1. Get your GRIP 2. Establish your STANCE 3. Hold your BREATH properly 4. Get your Sight Picture / AIM 5. PRESS your trigger straight to the rear 6. FOLLOW THROUGH and CALL YOUR SHOT “ A shooter using One (kind) pistol, same Ammo, One Aiming Point and One SYSTEM should produce One Hole (Touching Shot-Group)..!”
