2 OBJECTIVES 1. TO DEMONSTRATE HOW TO DETERMINE WHICH EYE IS THE “DOMINATE” EYE. Slide 4 2. TO IDENTIFY AND EXPLAIN THE SIX FUNDAMENTALS OF MARKSMANSHIP. Slides TO LIST THE FUNDAMENTAL GUN SAFETY RULES. SLIDES 7, TO LIST THE TWO MAIN REASONS FOR GUN ACCIDENTS. SLIDE TO DEMONSTRATE THE IMMEDIATE ACTION DRILL USED TO CLEAR COMMON STOPPAGES. SLIDE 21

3 OBJECTIVES 6. TO EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COVER AND CONCEALMENT. SLIDE TO EXPLAIN THE IMPORTANCE OF PRACTICE IN RELATION TO A HEIGHTED RATE OF SURVIVABILITY. SLIDES

4 The Dominate Eye The dominant eye should be used for aiming. WHY WOULD YOU SHOOT WITH BOTH EYES OPEN?

8 Shooting Fundamentals Position - Consistency - Balance - Support - NPA (Natural Point of Aim) - Comfort - Weaver Vse. Isosceles

9 Shooting Fundamentals Grip THE “HAND SHAKE” APPROACH!

10 Shooting Fundamentals Sight Alignment

11 Target, front sight and rear sight aligned “Six o’clock” hold, or “center of mass” hold

12 Shooting Fundamentals Sight Alignment Focus is on the… front sight

13 Shooting Fundamentals Breath Control Body movement affects the shot -So… quiet yourself Breathing requires muscle movement -So… shoot between breaths Breathe out part way, hold, and shoot. Don’t hold your breath too long or muscle tremors will create movement and disrupt the shot.

14 Breath Control In order to minimize body movement, your breath must be held while firing a shot. In order to minimize body movement, your breath must be held while firing a shot. Before each shot, take a breath, let enough air out so you are comfortable, and hold the remaining breath while firing the shot. Before each shot, take a breath, let enough air out so you are comfortable, and hold the remaining breath while firing the shot. If your breath is held too long, muscle tremors may start. (approx. 8 seconds, but varies from person to person) Point the gun in a safe direction, take your finger off the trigger, put the gun down, relax take a few breaths, and then begin the firing cycle again. practice purposes.

16 Shooting Fundamentals Trigger Squeeze Don’t use the “P” word!!! Gradually increasing pressure until the mechanism releases SURPRISE yourself when the gun shoots

19 Safe Gun Handling Major Causes of gun accidents:  Ignorance- a lack of knowledge An individual may not know how to properly operate a pistol An individual may not know how to properly operate a pistol  Carelessness- firearms accidents can occur when a person is careless around firearms. A person handling a gun may know the various gun safety rules, but neglects to apply them. A person handling a gun may know the various gun safety rules, but neglects to apply them.

21 IMMEDIATE ACTION DRILL Most stoppages that may occur to a semi-automatic pistol can be cleared by one immediate action drill: Most stoppages that may occur to a semi-automatic pistol can be cleared by one immediate action drill: Tap/Roll/Rack Tap/Roll/Rack Remove your finger from the trigger and point the gun in a safe direction. Remove your finger from the trigger and point the gun in a safe direction. Tap- the base of the magazine to ensure it is fully seated. Tap- the base of the magazine to ensure it is fully seated. Invert-Roll the gun toward your non-gun hand if it is an open top ejection port, or to the side with the ejection port if not. This will allow a cleared round to escape during the next action.

Rack- the slide vigorously to the rear and let it go forward without riding the slide. Rack- the slide vigorously to the rear and let it go forward without riding the slide. Ready- Assess the situation to determine if the target still presents a threat. Take appropriate action. Ready- Assess the situation to determine if the target still presents a threat. Take appropriate action. This drill will clear most stoppages; however there are other techniques for clearing other less common stoppages that you should learn. This is a good reason to take a more advanced protection class.
