ATAC TV™ Firearm Reply and Answer:

So you want an accurate pistol.  If you’re going to own a pistol, why not own the one that is most accurate, right? Money is not going to buy you tighter groups, only training. With so many brands to choose from (Smith & Wesson, Colt, Beretta, Ruger, GLOCK etc…) and types (semi-automatic, single-action or double-action revolver, etc), how can we know which one is the most accurate?  Tom Clarke and Lenny Bolton reply to this question through video. 

Here is the good news: Most handguns are more accurate than the shooter!  People whom research the factory specs of a handgun need to remember the conditions under which they may be using their firearm are varied and unpredictable.  The human factor is the key to accuracy.  We, the shooters, are the ones who cause the firearm to be less accurate.

Other reasons for the firearm to be less accurate may involve the choice of ammunition used, the smoothness of the trigger, and the sight radius.  The ammo, trigger control and sight radius all affect the management of the pistol, particularly in regards to handling the firearm, controlling recoil, and completing follow through after sending the bullet downrange.  All of this is the responsibility of the shooter, not the firearm.  There are many programs available on ATAC TV to assist with choosing a firearm to fit your personal preference. 

Handguns are normally used in close range encounters as opposed to long distances.  It is considered a defensive firearm and it is concealable.  Yes, some handguns are naturally easier to shoot than others.  You must understand the capabilities of your skill level.  You’ll want to watch the video on ATAC TV™ to hear what Tom Clarke™ has to say about an unknown shooter down range who was shooting an obnoxiously loud handgun during this filming.  Basically you can buy an expensive firearm, but only an accurate shooter can make an accurate handgun! 

You can do the research and you can spend the money, but a handgun cannot operate without a shooter.  How good can a handgun be without a good shooter behind it?  You have to put the time into training your basic marksmanship skills.  You can take any firearm, and if you put the time and training into becoming proficient with it, you will have an accurate pistol.  And remember training with a firearm should involve Dry Practice, and lots of it!.  So watch some of the free dry practice programs on ATAC TV and get better training for yourself.  Increase YOUR skills and almost any handgun becomes the accurate firearm for you.
