    When you find your target say "ONE". When you say "TWO" pull the trigger.

    Range Drills
    Now shoot 10 rounds using the ONE TWO method nice and slow. Make sure to say out loud ONE TWO.
    Now shoot 10 rounds using the ONE TWO method twice as fast. Make sure to say out loud ONE TWO.
    Now shoot 10 rounds using the ONE TWO method as fast as you can say ONE TWO in your head.
    Now shoot 2 more sets of 10 rounds using the ONE TWO method as fast as you can say ONE TWO in your head.

    *for double taps go: One Two Two

    Why does the ONE TWO method work? It keeps you from thinking too much and removes indecision. Thinking too much and holding your aim on target too long causes the wiggles. Anticipating the recoil and bang causes fliches. Counting out loud ONE TWO gets your mind off the recoil and bang. After hours of training using ONE TWO, reflexes start taking over and you start shooting good.

    Hmm, I might have to give this a try. But I have found that shooting from instinct works best. It's kind of like when a baseball pitcher tries to "steer" the baseball into the strike zone rather than just letting muscle memory take over. I was a pitcher, and this was something I had to overcome. It's all mental!

    Accuracy - Hands, Elbows & Feet

    Your goal is to duplicate your grip and stance for every shot. This will really tighten groups and keep you on target. When I go to the range, I see 90% of the shooters doing it all wrong. Practice using the three below tips and you will see your accuracy get so much better. After a few trips to the range, you may be looking for competitive shooting events to enter!
    1. Two hand grip. Your leff hand should be high on the pistol with both of your thumbs almost touching the slide. Place your left thumb forward so it is in front of your right thumb (see above pic). Both thumbs should be pointing at the target. As for grip pressure; about 40% with your right hand and 60% with your left. Your left hand is your steering hand; same as if you were pointing a rifle.
    2. Elbows. Both elbows should be almost locked so your arms are pointing straight out. Muscles in your arms have poor memory, but locked elbows are always the same.
    3. Feet. Both feet should be shoulder width apart and square with your hips. A majority of your weight should be on the balls of your feet, just like for wrestling, boxing, or karate.
