Avoid These Top Mistakes: Expert Insights from Brass Precision Community for New Shooters

The First Rule: Firearm Safety

The most crucial aspect of firearms training is safety. Even though Brass App has a dry fire feature that utilizes lasers instead of live rounds, safety is still our number one priority. Oftentimes, new shooters underestimate the importance of this fundamental principle. We stress the significance of always treating a firearm as if it is loaded. Neglecting this rule can lead to accidents and irreversible consequences. Trigger discipline, muzzle awareness and proper storage practices are the cornerstones of firearm safety that every new shooter must embrace.

Perfecting Your Stance and Grip with Brass App

New shooters often overlook the importance of their stance and grip when handling a firearm. A stable shooting platform is critical for accuracy and control. Our trainers emphasize the need for a firm, two-handed grip, along with a balanced and squared stance. Neglecting this aspect can result in poor accuracy and recoil management, hindering your progress.

Achieving Precision with Sight Picture and Trigger Control

Achieving accurate shots is a combination of precise sight picture, target acquisition, and trigger control. Novice shooters may underestimate the importance of aligning their sights correctly with proper target acquisition, and applying smooth, deliberate trigger pulls. At Brass, we stress the need for proper sight alignment and a steady trigger squeeze to ensure consistent accuracy, aligning with our commitment to excellence.

A Valuable Tool: Dry Fire Practice

Dry fire training, where shooters practice with an unloaded firearm, is a valuable tool for skill development. Triumph Systems came up with the Brass App dry fire training system to revolutionize the way new shooters approach their training. This innovative system provides an immersive and effective way for beginners to hone their shooting skills, safety, and efficiency. With Brass App, new shooters can practice trigger control, sight alignment, target acquisition, and proper stance and grip in a controlled, simulated environment.

While many new shooters overlook this aspect of training, incorporating dry fire practice into your routine can help build muscle memory and improve your overall shooting skills.

Overconfidence and Undertraining

New shooters may overestimate their abilities, leading to overconfidence. This can result in unsafe practices and an unwillingness to seek professional training. Brass App instructors stress the importance of continuous education and training, even for experienced shooters. Overconfidence can lead to complacency, which is a dangerous mindset when handling firearms.
