Default How to REALLY shoot a Pistol! (Film)

Howdy,

Here is a GREAT short film on the essential fundamentals of pistol marksmanship. It features Bill McMillan, Marine and competitive pistol shooter extraordinaire. Noted for his Olympic Gold Medal in
Rapid Fire Pistol at the 1960 Rome Games, he also excelled with service pistol at the Nationals.
This was posted by USC (as in, University of South Carolina!)

His comments on trigger control are a bit contrary to modern training, but he sure got results.

Sorry, he chose High Standard over S&W for his .22, and a Colt Officers Model Match over a S&W K38.
But, at the 5:10" mark you can see the instructor has a S&W K frame rear sight installed on his .45 cal 1911.

Here's a related website:
LtCol William W. McMillan, Jr. USMC (Ret'd)

Enjoy!

I just forwarded it to a friend, fairly new shooter that is still struggling with larger groups. A little outdated, but basic's are still the same.

I watched it thru and enjoyed it. Great tips. I am not, however, going to put tape on my grips, sticky side out. I will have to accept the consequences of that omission.

I like the range boxes they were using at 1:10 in with the spotting scope attached to the lid. Going to have to check around for plans or ideas and put one together for the indoor range.
