The Fundamentals of the Pistol Box!

Post by Jon Eulette on 11/13/2017, 12:04 am

First topic message reminder :

I was looking at the Topic in Equipment regarding Pistol Box Design. Then I realized that to my recollection, no one has addressed the 6th fundamental....the Pistol Box!
We have stance, breathing, grip, sight alignment/picture and TRIGGER CONTROL. We've been neglecting teaching the proper use of the pistol box. It is a tool and in most cases improperly used. How we stand and scope should be as important as how we apply the other fundamentals. I watch too many shooters move their feet to scope shots or layout their equipment in a scattered manner with no after thought as to how things are placed.
So I thought I'd throw this out for comments Wink
I truly believe it can aid our shooting or be a distraction.

Most of the time the box seems to live on the left side of the shooter.
Walk down any firing line and observe.
I've found that if I keep my eyes open & mouth shut I learn more and bother fewer people.
That being said...I don't remember getting any flak for asking questions and pretty much everybody has been eager to help.

If you place your box on the left, you can attach a brass deflector screen to the lid.

and the brass catcher on the right does not block the opening to box.
