The Simple Drill That Made Me a Better Pistol Shot | Outdoor Life

I’ve always struggled with shooting fast and accurately, which keeps me as a mediocre C-class USPSA shooter. But, I recently attended a pistol class at Vortex Edge that fixed an issue I’ve been working on for years—I, like many right-handed shooters, hit low left when I try to shoot fast.

In the first 30 minutes of the class, we did some simple drills and the instructors made two modifications to my grip. I could then shoot fast (.19 to .22 splits) and maintain A-zone (6 x 11 inches) hits at 15 yards. I then progressed to a sub-second (.97) draw with an A-zone hit, another milestone.

If you are also struggling with maintaining accuracy with your pistol while pushing for speed, here are the simple tips and drills to try.
