    Learn why you may be missing low and away, and what you can do to start shooting more accurately. From teaching firearms classes, private lessons and concealed carry classes for many years we've seen pattern of new-to-intermediate shooters missing low and away. For right-handed shooters that would be low and left.  For left-handed shooters that would be low and right.

    Why does this happen?  The two most common reasons are related to shooting anticipation and trigger control.  Shooting anticipation, also known as 'flinching' or 'recoil anticipation', is a common and difficult problem to overcome for some shooters.  The laws of physics show that when a bullet is fired from a gun there will be an equal and opposite force pushing back into the gun and the shooter's hands This is known as recoil or 'kick back'.   

    Your brain knows when you pull that trigger an explosion will take place, the gun will recoil and you will instinctively want to control it.  The problem arises when you anticipate the expected recoil moments before the bullets explodes out of the gun.  This premature recoil anticipation will result in a flinch that will cause the gun to snap downward and the bullet to miss your intended target low.

    The other common shooting error we discussed was trigger control and excessive grip tension in the firing hand.  In regards to trigger control, it is imperative that you pull the trigger straight back, without jerking it or hooking it.  If you can't press the trigger correctly, you'll never be able to hit what you are aiming at.  Hooking the trigger finger towards your support hand when firing will cause your shots to miss that same direction.  You can master every shooting fundamental on the planet, but if you can't manipulate the trigger correctly you will never be able to shoot straight.
