Finding the Key

I remember my first trip to the library as a student. Now this was in the era before computers became a staple in business. Everything was handwritten or typed and organized accordingly. It was an intimidating experience. As the teacher explained that this would be our major source of research I wondered, "How am I going to find anything in this place?" Books, magazines and newspapers were everywhere! I had no idea how I would be able to get anything done or where to start. Fortunately, I was given the key to all riddles concerning the vastness of the library. I learned about the catalogue system. How to use it, cross-reference subjects, and narrow down my searches for specific information. Once I learned how to do that my entire perspective of the library changed for the better. It soon became a place of comfort beyond the academic requirements of research. Learning how to shoot a firearm can be a similar experience for new shooters.

If you find yourself in the exciting position of learning how to shoot for the first time or learning a new shooting skill it is imperative that you find the key to make it a successful experience. Let me let you in on a little secret. Keep it as simple as possible. While there are multiple components to shooting, simplifying those components makes the difference in an okay experience and a great experience. There are multiple rules of the gun that people will quote to you, but you only truly need to know the 4 basic rules of gun safety. The act of shooting can be simplified equally by remembering this: start from the ground up. Your stance is most important so get comfortable. Various people will tell you one shooting stance works better than the other but the goal is to be comfortable. The next thing you want to do is get a firm yet comfortable grip on the gun. You should not need to squeeze excessively on gun to control it. Try various grip methods until you find the one that works for you. Once you get that done you can move on to getting a good sight picture. Lastly, learning to squeeze the trigger versus pulling the trigger will help you get very close to completing the cycle of shooting.

Hopefully, this brief explanation of finding the key will help you get to a comfortable place as a new shooter or continue to grow as an experienced shooter.
