Pistol Shooting Drill - Shooting and Moving Forward with A Pistol

If you are conducting Close Quarters Combat (CQB / CQC) as a member of a Special Operations team of a Law Enforcement SWAT team member the ability to shoot and move forward with a pistol or patrol rifle is paramount. A lot over shooters over think the process. When the red dot is on the target send the round.

The general principles of shooting and moving is to keep your knees bent a little more than normal to act as a shock absorber. For me I take smaller steps to help minimize the movement in my firearms. A lot of shooter’s will have low shots because they have not establish a good movement base and in turn when the foot hits the ground there is typically downward movement in the barrel of the red dot pistol or patrol rifle.

The key is to practice. A tool you can use is a laser pointer to see how much movement is happening with the firearm.

The video will explain the technique and you can see a practical demonstration of this pistol shooting drill.
