Proven Tips to Improve Your Shooting Accuracy

Whether you own a gun for hunting or you want to protect your home and family, learning to shoot accurately is an essential skill. While practice is a key part of improving your shooting accuracy, you also want to follow a few strategies to prevent mistakes that cut into your accuracy when you shoot.

Take It Slow

Before you take a shot, slow down and take your time to properly aim your gun. Do not shoot quickly and never shoot without properly aiming. If you shoot too fast, you end up with poor accuracy. Slow down and take your time when you aim. You should always take a few seconds to aim, even in an emergency situation, so you do not miss your target.

Check Your Scope

A scope on your rifle or a long-range weapon allows you to see clearly. Unfortunately, a poorly mounted scope actually detracts from your accuracy by throwing off your sight. Before you start shooting, check that your scope is properly and tightly mounted. If it moves at all, then you may need to tighten it or even completely remove and remount the scope for better accuracy.

Maintain Consistent Shoulder Pressure with a Rifle

When using a rifle or a long-range weapon, always maintain consistent shoulder pressure when you shoot. A mistake that robs your shot of accuracy is inconsistent pressure on your shoulder. That means you are not getting the same results because your rifle may move when you shoot.

Dry Fire With Your Gun

While dry firing seems boring and does not actually shoot with ammo, it is an important part of practicing your shot and your aim. Make sure you always check for ammo and remove any bullets from the gun before you start dry firing. Ideally, you want to dry fire at a range or in a safe location to prevent accidents.

Improving your accuracy is a combination of maintaining consistency, practicing regularly and taking your time to check your aim. When you practice and ensure consistency, you will notice positive changes in your accuracy at the range or while hunting.
