First, you need a firm grip on the weapon.  There is so much to focus your attention on, especially as a new shooter, but it is essential that you pay close attention to the grip. With the right grip you will shoot better and have a better aim. Many competition handguns are available, but no matter which one you buy, a good grip is important to maintain.

If you want to maintain accuracy in every shot, you must get a firm grip on the weapon but you must also be sure that you have proper wrist control as well. Without wrist control, misalignment of the weapon when firing is a likely occurrence. A misalignment causes your weapon to fire inaccurately. Practice holding the gun firmly, but also ensure that you focus attention on wrist control, too.

Make sure the weapon allows you to get your finger on the trigger easily and comfortably. Although you might think that you should align the barrel of the gun with the length of your arm, this is not the case. Two hands are always better than one, so if you can use both, make sure that you do!

Competition shooting is fun and exciting for all, especially once you familiarize yourself enough with the fun to relax and enjoy the game as it is meant to be enjoyed.  Use the tips above to get the most out of your game.
