When your shot placement is off target there are 5 common reasons why this occurs.

  1. Jerking the trigger which causes the front sight to move off target.  Corrective action is to slowly and steadily squeeze the trigger keeping your front sight on target.
  2. Recoil anticipation which also causes the front sight to move off target.  Corrective action is not to anticipate the recoil before it actually occurs.
  3. Improper trigger finger placement, when the trigger is squeezed at an angle, this causes the muzzle to move off target.  Corrective action is to maintain a straight, even finger placement on the trigger prior to squeezing off a round.
  4. Inconsistencies in grip, stance, strength or alignment.  Corrective action is to maintain correct and consistent grip, stance, strength and alignment.
  5. Improper zeroing of weapon.  Corrective action is to properly zero your weapon.  A proper zero on a weapon enables you to consistently make your point of aim equal your point of impact.

I have tried almost every method there is of carrying shotgun shells including 6 and 12 round molle shot shell pouches, saw molle pouches, large jacket pocket carry and shotgun shell belts to name just a few; but by far the best I’ve come across recently is the Condor 25 round shot shell holder with a Molle attachment configuration.  This pouch will hold 25 of the 2 3/4″ shot shells in a quick, convenient manner, although I prefer to only keep 24 of them per pouch.  And because the pouch is molle and somewhat flat when closed it can be worn on a pack, a belt, a drag bag, a tactical vest, a shotgun scabbard or placed in a large jacket pocket or inside an armed response bag.

Most of you know that I am against gun control and the ridiculous measures legislatures continually try and pass.  Here are some of the major reasons why gun control is wrong.

  • Guns are used by law abiding American citizens in self defense approximately 2.5 million times per year or about 6,850 times per day.  That equates to a lot more innocent citizens surviving and a lot more scumbag criminals being stopped.
  • Concealed carry laws have reduced the murder and crime rate in all states where concealed carry laws have been passed.
  • The 2nd Amendment protects the rights of individuals to keep and bear arms.  The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
  • Washington D.C. has the most restrictive gun laws in the nation and is frequently the leader in murder rates.  While the murder rate in concealed carry states has decreased an average of between 36% and 49% Washington D.C.’s murder rate has increased 46%.
  • More people die every year from motor vehicle accidents or sports related injuries then from accidental gun discharges yet you never see anyone trying to ban motor vehicles or sports.
  • Gun control laws only disarm law abiding citizens.  Thugs and criminals won’t obey these laws as they are deviants to begin with.
  • Given a choice criminals prefer unarmed victims 100% of the time.
  • Self defense is an individual responsibility which cannot be delegated to someone else.  Firearms with proper training are the most effective form of self defense.
  • If you don’t want to own a gun then don’t own one; but don’t try and restrict my rights to do so.  I suppose you’ll only understand this when someone tries to ban something that you own.  I am a law abiding citizen who owns firearms and does so responsibly.

I am a law abiding, pistol permit holder and like millions of others we have never shot anyone and we use our guns for recreational purposes and for personal and home defense.  Gun control does nothing to reduce crime; it simply disarms law abiding citizens who purchase their guns legally, but does nothing to disarm criminals who purchase their guns illegally on the black market.

Gun control for law abiding citizens is pure nonsense; as only law abiding citizens would be affected.  Criminals don’t obey laws which is why they are criminals.  Don’t worry all you gun control advocates; if you are ever in danger from a thug or criminal who is intent on harming you or your family I will make sure not to assist with my firearm.  After all you really don’t want law abiding citizens who could have helped you to be armed and to save your life or families lives anyway.

If you’re looking to prevent the end of the world then all you need to do is buy one of my books; as my December mid month promotion is buy a book and the world will certainly continue on………… what more could anyone ask.  Click on the book cover image links to the left on my blog page which will take you to the Amazon website where you can see a free preview by clicking on the look inside option.  If you like what you see then feel free to make a purchase 🙂  Leaving book comments at the Amazon website is appreciated as well.

Why is shooting center mass and or head shots so important?  In essence because it is combat effective. It stops assailants who are trying to harm you and your family, during a home invasion as an example, when the threat of death to you and yours is immediate and apparent.  Head shots are an expedient way to end an attack as hitting the brain turns off the attackers ability to control his central nervous system.  Head shots are generally more difficult then center mass shots as the head is a smaller target and tends to move around more than the torso area.

Center mass is essentially shots to the torso with the preferred location being high on the chest.  These are easier shots to make than head shots as even if your aim is slightly off, you still have a good chance of hitting a vital organ and bringing the attack to an end.  If your life or your families lives are in imminent danger, the primary focus is to stop the attack with a justifiable use of lethal force.  After all your life is more important than some scumbags who is out there to rape or murder you with no regard for your life or the lives or your loved ones.

An extreme survival scenario has just ocurred.  Armed criminals are on the prowl with the intent of harming you and your family.  Now is not the time to make shooting mistakes.  Here are some of the common shooting scenario mistakes people make when under stress or pressure.  Avoid these shooting mistakes at all costs.

  • Not seeing what is in plain sight while scanning the area for the enemy.
  • Not being aware of where your muzzle is pointed and what your trigger finger is doing.
  • Moving too quickly.
  • Not removing the safety once target acquisition has been obtained.
  • Not being sure of your target and considering what is around the target.
  • Not prioritizing your threats.
  • Not making positive ID that a threat is truly a threat.
  • Not breathing properly or having correct situational awareness.
  • Not having sufficient, available ammunition in the correct caliber for your weapon.
