Combat Shooting



Training for a gun fight by standing in one place is like training for a NBA basketball game by playing horse. If you cannot shoot while moving, you will likely not succeed.

Is that you, Xavier?

We always try to do the same thing, ie. movement and/or "odd" shooting positions. I would rather hit (or see you hit) a 6" group at center mass while moving laterally than a 1" group standing offhand.

Any tips on how to handle a gun one handed while moving like that? I'm finding it hard to handle the recoil and get my shots off faster one handed, even strong handed. I will not shoot faster than I can handle so my seven shots would have been considerably slower.

I dunno. Seems like there's a big risk of tripping over something when you move backwards and to the side like that - not an expert or anything. I do concede that it's likely better than standing stock-still.

I need to find a range where they have moving targets.

ever more reason to practice it.

And to practice shooting from the "Sh*t, I just fell down!" position.

If I tried that at my indoor range I'd be asked to leave immediately. :-)

That is why you should practice in their parking lot.

That's extremely tame given most IDPA matches I've shot. You just need to find a shooting club in your area. It really show where your skill level is at.
