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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

This is more easy than trying to figure out how to swing a dang golf club!
