Last fall I bought a S&W Sigma in .40. It was kind of an impulse buy that I later began to regret. From the get go I hated the heavy trigger pull and I just could not for the life of me be consistent the darn thing. I've shot several hundred rounds through it, but to no avail, and I decided that it had to be the trigger that was causing me to pull the gun around as I squeezed it. I mean no matter how gingerly I tried, I could not group anything. Well, the other day I was watching tv and there was a hangun competition on and I decided to watch for awhile. After only a few minutes I noticed that several of the shooters had one thing in common- the way they were standing and holding the firearm. Then it hit me- I might need try to a different shooting style other than what I was used to. Lo and behold, I took my .40 out to try the new technique and the results were astounding. With my old style I would be lucky to put half of the rounds in my clip onto a 2'x2' target. Yesterday I put 8 out of 12 in a 10" diameter. A marksman am I, by no means. But now that I know HOW to shoot this weapon, I am more confident when holding it that I can hit pretty close to where I want the bullet to go. So what's the lesson of this? I needed to be flexible with my shooting styles and that learning a new one was awkward at first, but it yielded fantastic results.
