What should a good no-shoot training look like?

Regardless of the field of sport he deals with, it is always necessary to first take care of the substantive and technical background. If we want to become masters, we cannot rely on practice alone. We also need knowledge. In the case of non-shooting training, it is mainly about the correct posture and all the information that will be useful before the first shooting.

What is sport shooting?

In short, it consists in the deliberate and controlled use of firearms, sometimes also pneumatic, for hunting, recreational or sports purposes. While all of these categories fall under sports, the main focus of sport shooting is competitive. During the competition, shots are fired at specially prepared targets, usually targets.

What's the deal with non-shot training?

In the case of non-shooting training, weapons without ammunition or dummy weapons are used for exercises. This allows you to develop certain habits that will be necessary when actually firing shots. In addition, we then acquire skills. They will allow us to learn the appropriate shooting technique and avoid basic mistakes.

No-shot training allows you to deepen your theoretical knowledge and muscle memory, which may turn out to be important when performing the proper training.

What is muscle memory? It is about situations when the body starts to make certain movements intuitively. Therefore, it is necessary to repeat the same activities regularly, thanks to which a specific memory will be built up and the muscles will get used to the new routine. First of all, muscle memory helps to recover faster after a long break, muscles adapt to effort more easily and remember specific movements. In addition, it allows for better regeneration of the body after training.

How is the non-shot training course?

If we are beginners, it is worth finding a trainer who will introduce us to shooting in Cracow. As long as we practice on our own, we can develop bad habits that will be difficult to eradicate over time. This is why knowledge and guidance by a mentor can prove essential.

Before the first training session, it is a good idea to get accessories such as a shield, holsters, and belts. At the beginning, it may be enough, but the longer we train shooting, the more necessary it will be to buy other accessories, such as a timer / stopwatch. Thanks to this, we will be able to achieve much better results.

During non-shot training, the most important thing is concentration, weapon handling, accuracy and strengthening of those parts of the body that are responsible for controlling the weapon. It is worth focusing on two types of exercises:

  • Slow work on the trigger - in this case it becomes at a distance of about 25m from the target and is measured to the target. Then we focus our eyes on the sight and try to aim at the designated target, and then we fire 20 shots with each hand.
  • Static - here we also stand at a distance of 25 m from the target. We pick up the gun, rip off all the sights, keep the gun in the air for half a minute and take a break for another half a minute. It is for this exercise that you may need a timer or a stopwatch that can track the exercise and break times.
