Bullseye Tip of the Day

Post by DavidR on 3/15/2012, 3:51 pm

First topic message reminder :

Post a good, informative Tip if you have one.

From the AMU training guide:
Trigger control is of very great importance in producing an accurate
shot. When the
shooter exerts pressure on the trigger, he must do so in a manner that
does not alter the sight
alignment, or position of the pistol. Consequently, the shooter must be
able to exert smooth, even pressure to the trigger. Furthermore, the
trigger must be pressed in conjunction with maximum concentration, peak
visual perception of sight alignment and minimum arc of movement.

Don't squeeze the trigger. Move it rearward.

The Great Walter Winans

Here are some shooting tips published in his 1912 book. He was very impressed with the new Colt 1911 service pistol.

It is advisable to have the same weight of trigger-pull on all your pistols. If they vary it makes it difficult to shoot equally well with all. The heavier trigger-pull of some will hamper you, and the lighter trigger-pull on others may make you discharge them before you mean to.

Before practising for or entering a competition, see that your trigger-pull complies with the regulations, as nothing is more annoying than, after making a winning score, to find your trigger-pull is too light and your score in consequence is disqualified.
It is best to have the trigger-pull well over the minimum so as to allow for its getting lighter during shooting.

Now as to holding the stock of an automatic pistol. The United States Regulation Colt .45 Automatic has the best grip of any, and one can hold it, as I have advised for the duelling pistol, right up hard against the projection over which the recoil slide operates.
The Colt automatic pistol, like the Smith & Wesson hammerless safety pocket revolver, remedies this defect by having a second safety which makes the pistol safe, even if the first safety slide is not at safe. This consists of a lever at the back of the stock which is at safe till the hand presses it in firing and which keeps the weapon safe till the stock is gripped in actual firing.

In my opinion the United States .45 Regulation Colt Automatic pistol is the best of all army pistols. (See Plates 13 and 14.) The way it was chosen should guarantee this.
It was first chosen because it passed all the[Pg 232] military tests such as sand, rust, and freedom from jamming under rough usage. Then it was put into the hands of all the best pistol shots in the United States and their reports examined. It has, therefore, not only passed military but expert shooters’ tests, and alterations were made in accordance with their reports.

The first thing I did when I got my United States .45 Colt Automatic pistol was to put on it a white silver bead front sight, first removing the regulation black knife edge front sight.
I then made the U in the hind sight very big. This pistol has been carried through the war by my chauffeur, W. Francis, who entered the Russian Army as a volunteer and has gained the St. George’s cross for bravery and he is delighted with the sighting of the pistol, and can do very rapid shooting with it.

Let me see if I can get this quote right "What is new was once forgotten" by some person much more notable than me.

Shooting in competitive matches provides a unique experience that cannot be duplicated in practice, with the result of becoming a better competitive shooter.  Only at a Bullseye match will the true test of ones competitive shooting skills be demonstrated.
