Of the three shooting disciplines—rifle, handgun, shotgun—I’ve long been convinced that the handgun is the most difficult. Physically, a handgun is the least congenial to human anatomy, and the mistakes you can make are the most numerous, the most subtle, and the most difficult to diagnose. I believe that, of all the things I’ve done with a gun, NRA 50-yard bull’s-eye shooting is the most difficult. The magic formula for successful pistol shooting is HOOTS—Hand Out Of The Shot. Much easier said than done.
