For the past year I’ve been busy testing and evaluating the best tools for learning how to shoot. If an item passed my BS test (that’s of course Bad Shooting), I shared them with my online members to test. The ones that rose to the top made my final list for my updated Top Must-Have Tools for Learning to Shoot from Home .
If you’re at all familiar with my blog and my practices, you already know that I believe a live fire range is the absolute worst place you can learn to shoot. You’ll blow away your competition if you learn the basics (how to stand, how to grip your firearm and align your sights, etc.) at home rather than trying to learn them with the stress of gunfire at the range.
Based on the New Rules of Marksmanship Training System I created, I’m recommending products for everything from meditation programs to grip strength and habit tracking. There are four meditation tools I recommend that range from simple, on-the-go guided meditations, to an advanced program that focus on your transforming your body as well as your mind.
In addition to mental preparation, there are a few products I recommend to perfect your dry fire training. One product is app based and provides detailed feedback on the movement of your handgun during the trigger pull. The other product is great for laser training. I’ve also included two decks of playing cards that have some great dry fire and survival drills on them. This is a good way to keep your dry fire training interesting and engaging.
Aside from your mind, your eyes and your hands play a crucial role in shooting. To help train them, my Top Must-Haves list includes two focus strings, as well as two great grip strength tools. To complement my own online training program, I’ve included two courses in the guide. One will help you learn to draw your weapon quickly and fire accurate shots and the other is a handgun safety course that will qualify you for a concealed weapons permit online.
I strongly recommend that you track your learning as you go. There are two great online programs that will make habit tracking a breeze and they’ll serve you in all areas of your life, not just when you’re learning to shoot. You can also track your physical training and your eating or sleeping habits.
