+1 Gun

When your looking at the specs of the gun and it says

Capacity: 10+1 (its not always 10)

This means two things;

1: The gun can fire a round without a magazine in the gun.

2:You can keep 1 round in the chamber and 10 rounds in the magazine.
Number one is not true. Several manufacturers make sem-autos with a magazine disconnect safety that will not let the gun fire if magazine is out of it. But, it will still have a round in the chamber, just cannot fire it.

My bad, I'll make sure to change that!

Get a good reloading manual. Hornady, Speer, Lyman, etc. Used is OK, for now.

They contain a wealth of information about bullet calibers and types.

Start simply-learn the basics with 22LR pistols and rifles. You will probably find they are

favorites you will always return to, even after you have moved on to bigger calibers.

When anyone wants to buy a gun in order to HAVE a gun - this presuming the person in question does not own a gun at the moment - the most important question to answer is:

"For what purpose is the gun to be used?"

Hunting, target, defense - either home or personal, or investing - are all good, proper and legitimate reasons to own a firearm of any type. However, they all have different criteria. Some compromises can be made, but no one firearm does everything for everyone, every time.

After determining a purpose, one may then consider price, availability, ergonomics, caliber and so forth.

Don't be cheap about buying guns. Save money at the supermarket, get a good deal saving money on a used car,

Save money on clothes at Goodwill. But if you buy POS guns, it will bite you in the ass.

S&W, Colt, Beretta, Sig, Ruger, Marlin, Mossberg, go with good known brand names.

Know the Rules of Gun Safety


Before you even think about picking up a gun, you should be able to recite these gun safety rules in your sleep:

  • Treat every gun as if it is loaded all of the time
  • Never point your gun at anything you do not wish to destroy
  • Keep your finger off of the trigger until you are ready to fire
  • Always know your target and what is beyond it
Treating your gun as if it is loaded all of the time means to never assume that it is unloaded. Telling yourself that you checked to see if it was unloaded a couple of days ago is not a good habit to fall into. Assume that a round is hiding in the chamber somewhere and check, then check again.
Never point your gun at anything you aren’t wanting to destroy. Ever. Do not treat it as a toy and point it at your friend jokingly. Too many accidents have happened because of this mistake, which also goes back to treating your gun as if it is loaded at all times.
Keep your finger off of the trigger until you are ready to shoot your gun. The guys on TV who have their finger resting on the trigger is a big no-no, and quite frankly has come to be one of my biggest pet peeves when watching movies.
Most range officers will actually stop you in your tracks if they see that you are not removing your finger from the trigger after you shoot, so it is best to nip the habit in the bud before it ever starts.
Also, this is habit is crucial for if you ever want to consider carrying in a holster. If you draw your gun from the holster and are in the habit of laying your finger immediately on the trigger, you just increased the risk that you will shoot yourself or someone else before even reaching your target.

Always know your target and what is beyond it. If you are in your backyard shooting at targets or cans, consider the fact that a bullet can travel for several miles. In the event that you ever have to use your weapon in self defense, look behind your attacker as well to ensure that the bullet won’t travel and hit an innocent person.

Always put the proper ammunition in your gun

Always put the proper ammunition in your gun

Putting the wrong ammunition is a sure way to ruin or damage your weapon. On most semi-autos, the gun’s caliber is normally located on the barrel or the ejection chamber. If you are still unsure, it is always a good choice to reference your manual.

Find an instructor

Finding a reputable certified instructor can be one of the best things you can do for yourself. In most cases, they will join you at the range your first couple of times to help you get comfortable shooting around groups of people. This will also give you an opportunity to familiarize yourself with your weapon of choice.


However, when it comes to finding an instructor you have to trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable with your instructor before you even head to the range, find a new one. Having someone you don’t trust standing over your shoulder while you shoot a gun is a disaster in the making. You could run into accidents or you could be turned off to ever shooting a gun again.
That being said, when you do find a good instructor, listen to them. Do not take their feedback personally. They are giving your constructive criticism in order to make sure that you and everyone around you are safe at all times. If you are not willing to accept their feedback and learn from it, then you should probably find another hobby.

Shooting-Tip-Quotes-Tom-G.jpg

Ball ammo is live ammo. Dummy ammo is inert.
Just load your magazines with a combination of live ammo and dummy ammo. When you try to fire the dummy round (thinking it’s a live round), you’ll see the muzzle dip slightly (or more). That’s the flinch, or anticipation if you prefer. You will work on your concentration to make sure you don’t yank the trigger the next time a dummy round comes up, and as a result, you’ll be pressing the trigger better, have better follow through, and your groups will shrink significantly.
Note, this can be done with a revolver by leaving one or more chambers empty.
This is a drill people should do a few times a year, just as a tune-up.

Always aim to improve

Never assume that all of your shooting skills are mastered. Everyone in the gun world, including champion competitive shooters, have areas in which they can improve. Just because you can shoot a 9mm semi-automatic handgun does not mean that you will be comfortable shooting a .45 Colt single-action revolver or an AR-15 rifle.

For pure accuracy: a focus drill at close range, such as 4-5 yards. Object: every bullet in the same hole. Done at close range because a hit three inches out at 25 yards could be attributed to the gun or the ammo, but at 4 yards, the shooter doesn’t kid himself about whether or not human error was involved.

It most certainly is. Competition shooting requires intense focus, steadiness, good eyesight, smooth controlled reflexes and the ability to control one's breathing. It's not the same kind of sport as football, soccer, basketball, etc. where the activity is more physically intense but it does require physical and mental abilities.

Just like shooting as a sport!!! Can be timed. Can be scored. Can run between targets. Or can use a cart (drive by) between targets. Can chug beers and SHOOT the empty beer cans!! You cant smoke cigars in every sport can't ya!! So yes shooting is a sport!!

The sport of shooting is a challenge of accuracy and control, in which competitors use pistols or rifles to fire a series of shots at a stationary target. In this precision sport, athletes use focus and controlled breathing to reduce their heart rates and improve stability and high performance. This ability to steady hand and mind to deliver a sequence of shots requires well-developed powers of concentration and emotional control.
