Technology vs Techniques – Fundamentals of Marksmanship

By November 17, 2017News

We’ve come a long way from throwing sharpened sticks at the game and each other. As weapon technology has improved the game and scale of conflict has widened as the years have gone by. But no matter how good the technology, you can never replace the person behind the weapon with the weapon itself. Whether your choice of weapon is the bolt rift, shotgun, pistol, or M4 carbine, you need the techniques and training to run them properly. At Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy you can achieve the results you want no matter the technology you are using.

A great shooter can always out shoot a great gun

Consider the technology available to the modern shooter. Metallurgy and machine tools are the best they have ever been. CAD machining stations have taken over the saw and file of old rifle makers. Modern optics feature illuminated reticles, some tuned to the cartridge you are shooting or offering infrared capabilities. Not even the darkness can keep you from seeing your intended target. But with all this tech, what remains fundamental to hitting your mark? Good marksmanship – and the only thing that creates good marksmanship is good training. When you train at Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy in Whitewright Texas, you will find marksmanship training superior to any technology your weapon system has. Whether you are running a completely modern rifle or something from the last century, you will learn the fundamentals of marksmanship. At the end of the day, no matter the technology in your hands, your shot comes down to body position, bone support –muscle relaxed, sight picture, sight alignment, breath control and trigger control. When you send the shot to be sure you have the training to make it count.
