A Word From The CEO-  Wait, What?  There Is A Prois Outlet Store?!?

Shooting Tips!

Here’s a round of GREAT tips from Prois Staffer, Tarra Stoddard!

STANCE:

 We worked on our comfortable STANCE (at home). Closing our eyes with an unloaded firearm & swiveling (from waist up) our firearm and stopping when comfortable in stance on our hung target. Adjusting our eyes open to bulls eye when needed. Repeat this exercise thus building our Muscle memory Sight Alignment GRIP: We worked (at home) on being able to pick up & GRIP our handguns in a ready to fire any time we pick up our firearm. A proper & consistent grip is essential to accurate shooting. Together grip & position are the foundations that allow proper execution of the shooting fundamentals.

DOMINANT EYE:

Some people aim with their non-dominant eye. For some they don’t have a dominant eye. I suggest just aiming with whichever eye is most comfortable and gives clear sight. If your dominant eye is opposite our dominant firing hand turn your head to aim with dominant eye.

SIGHT ALIGNMENT:

Lining up the (dots) sights together to form a perfect fit. That’s the easy part. Now it’s keeping the sight alignment steady until you can get your sight picture that’s the tricky part! Close your left eye and hold the gun up so you can see 3 dots. What you’re going to want to do is line up those 3 dots so that the dot on the front site is in between the 2 dots on rear sights. Try to make the space between the 3 dots as even as possible. Ideally, all the dots should be perfectly in line and kept in line as you smoothly pull the trigger. Practice keeping your sight alignment steady (with your unloaded firearm, target on the wall) while dry firing.

SIGHT PICTURE:

With your sight alignments steady, focus on the front site. You should ideally place the front site slightly on top of what you are aiming at on your target. This will cause your target to be blurry or unfocused. You should be aiming center of mass (point of aim, point of impact). The aligned sights are placed in the middle of the aiming area. Practice keeping sight alignment steady and the front site on your point of aim while you steadily dry fire. (With your un-loaded firearm & target on the wall)

BREATH CONTROL:

To breathe or not to breathe, that is the question. Proper breathe control allows the shooter to remain steady to prevent body movement. Believe it or breathing has a HUGE impact on your marksmanship. Learning breath control techniques can insure the ability to take a reliable consistent and accurate shoot each time. Become aware of your natural breathing habits and any changes that occur to those patterns when you are shooting. I believe breathing is a very individualistic and personal decision. It seems there are four techniques to choose from. 1. Take a few breaths to relax, clear your thoughts, & focus on the aiming fundamentals; inhale, then pause your breathing while your lungs are FULL of oxygen and take the shot. 2. Take a few breaths to relax, clear your thoughts, & focus on aiming fundamentals; fully exhale, then pause your breathing, when your lungs are EMPTY of most of your oxygen, take the shot. 3. Take a few breaths to relax, clear your thoughts, & focus on fundamentals; exhale partially (about 50% of air) then pause when lungs are HALF full/half empty, take the shot. 4. Do not pause or hold your breath at all, breath NORMALLY, clear your thoughts, focus on fundamentals; take your shot while breathing. While practicing advanced fundamentals (with a unloaded firearm) after sighting, find your breathing pattern while shooting. Test these techniques and apply the one that best suits you! Happy Practicing!

TRIGGER CONTROL:

Trigger control does NOT mean a slow squeeze but a smooth (like pulling your finger through peanut butter) trigger pull. Smooth is steady & steady is smooth. Center the first pad of your trigger finger on the trigger while maintaining optimum sight picture until the hammer falls & the firing process is completed. Dry firing (with a cleared firearm) is the key to acquiring this skill. Trigger control does not mean a slow squeeze to the rear; it means smooth continuous pressure to the rear UNTIL the break point is reached.

TRIGGER PULL:

Smooth is steady & steady is fast! The trigger finger must pull trigger to the rear so the hammer falls WITH little disturbance to the aiming process. (Imagine pulling your finger tip through peanut butter). Novice shooters can take up to five seconds to perform an adequate trigger squeeze, but as your skills improve, you will be able to squeeze the trigger in a second or less. The proper trigger squeeze should start with slight pressure on the trigger during the initial aiming process. Then you apply more pressure after the front sight post is steady on the target & you have applied your breathe control. You should hold the trigger to the rear for one second after the trigger is pulled. This insures a steady position with reduces the disturbance of the pistol during trigger squeeze.
