If you had to pull out your gun because of a crime, would you shoot a bystander? Obviously no, you wouldn’t shoot a bystander on purpose! But what if you did, by accident, because you couldn’t aim for the person you were trying to hit? We understand that many people will say that if you “can’t hit the broadside of a barn,” then you shouldn’t take your gun out into public. And we agree with that statement. But, we also know that when you are in a stressful situation sometimes our bodies don’t respond the way we think they will. Other people, noises, activity, animals, etc around us may cause us to not be as focused on accuracy as we need to be.
That’s why we are stressing how important accuracy is when carrying in crowded areas. We’ve got the holidays coming up and people are going to be out filling shopping malls and stores more than ever. The facts show that a lot of crime goes up around the holidays, because it’s a stressful time. According to the National Crime Prevention Council, statistics show that crime increases during and after the holiday season because more people have cash, more people are out shopping, more people have flashy new electronics. Home invasions increase because burglars know that people have piles of gifts under the trees, or stashed in their cars.
How important is accuracy?
Think about the last time you went to the gun range. How was your accuracy? Chances are you were non-stressed, probably actually having a good time. Maybe laughing and talking with your buddies while target shooting. You probably were pretty accurate because you were non-pressured and relaxed.
It’s a darn good bet that if you tried that same shooting drill in your garage while you were also yelling at your wife to get the kids to safety and wondering if there were just one or two masked men in your garage, you might not be so accurate! Or imagine you’re checking out at a Wal-Mart and someone runs in shooting while yelling about religion. Again, stress is going to make you fearful, less certain, protective of your body. Sudden movements and noises will put you off your aim.
The more you practice the better you’re gonna be. Period. No matter the situation. Master target shooters or competitive shooters practice for the amount of time that you and I might sit on our butts at work or watching TV each week. Well, I’m here to tell you today about a new and easy way to improve shooting accuracy while you’re at home. No, you can’t sit on the couch while doing it, but you can watch TV. Let me tell you about it.
