Todd Louis Green - Aim Fast, Hit Fast 2 Day Pistol - Aug 9-10 Pittsburgh, PA



http://www.pistol-training.com

Class Description:
Aim Fast, Hit Fast is intended to pick up where most marksmanship training ends. All shooting involves a balance between accuracy and speed. Time allows us to concentrate on proper sight alignment and a slow, deliberate trigger pull for maximum precision. Therefore, the faster we are forced to shoot, the less accurate we expect to be. Away from the practice range, a shooter does not get to choose how much time he will get to break a shot … shooting becomes reactive and all timeframes are determined by the situation rather than comfort or habit.

The goal of this class is twofold. First, we will come to understand the critical balance between accuracy and speed for each individual shooter. Second, we will improve each shooter’s ability to deliver accurate, rapid fire in shorter timeframes to maximize his effectiveness shooting a pistol under stress. Skills to be covered include marksmanship, presentation from the holster, reloads, multiple targets, and shooting on the move.
