The pistol shooting basics involved in breathing control, squeezing the trigger, and tracking are pretty much the same as in rifle shooting. However, there are some important differences to remember.

As with rifles, the first knuckle of the finger must receive trigger pressure so that it is not located at the tip of the trigger.
When a gun is fired, gunpowder glowing in front of the cylinder can cause burns. Be sure to keep your fingers away from the front of the trigger area.
The slide and hammer of a semi-automatic pistol can deliver a bruising blow when held too close to the body. All pistols must be fired at arm’s length.


· Use a good holster with a seat belt.

· Draw a pistol only when you see the game.

· Only set your gun when it’s ready to fire.

· Keep your finger out of the trigger guard until you are ready to fire.
