Course Outline

If your shots do not hit where you were aiming, you may need to adjust your shooting technique.

For help, you can use a diagnostic target like those based on information from the U.S. Army's Marksmanship Unit Training Guide.

  • Typical targets are divided into sections labeled with information such as:
    • Having too little (or too much) trigger finger
    • Jerking or slapping the trigger
    • Gripping too tightly while pulling the trigger
  • These targets work best when shooting from a distance of 25 feet.
  • After shooting, you check the target to see what might have kept your shots from hitting the bull's-eye.
  • Diagnostic targets can be downloaded and printed from the Internet. They are available for both right-handed and left-handed shooters.
