Here is a short excerpt from a fundamentals course we ran out here on the ranch. Many times when new shooters get started we see them adjusting their heads to their sight vs bringing their sights up in front of their eyes. This can lead to poor body position, losing focus of the target during weapon manipulations and the potential of never acquiring the sights at all under stressful situations (looking over the pistol).
Here are a few tips and things your can do to help make sure that you can properly acquire you sights and watch the "field" through your weapon manipulations. For more information and a deeper dive into these specific fundamentals join us on the FSW University and check out these 3 training series:
