Many men (although women are interested in this sport as well) at least once in their lifetime dreamt of shooting like protagonists in action movies. Showy shootouts during driving, fighting with many armed enemies, shootings in dark alleys of city jungle – it’s all quite impressive and it involves great emotions. Now, such dream can be realized, by simply signing in for a military shooting course. Even if you aren’t professionally using your weapon, you can still be a pro when it comes to handle it. And you will be surely having a great fun, while doing so.
How do I start my adventure with shooting?
Military shooting, which means using guns in conditions as close to reality as possible, is for people who are already familiar with handling a weapon. If you are just starting your adventure, it is advised to begin with courses of recreational shooting. What will you learn on such course? Let’s start with acknowledging the fact that, you can enroll without any previous experience with shooting sports. Instructors are there to provide you with absolute basics.
Therefore you will learn what are the rules connected with handling the weapon and also anything that is required from you while you visit a shooting range. You will learn how to maintain shooting stance and hold your gun. You will also get to know basics on working with trigger and aiming equipment. Training without shooting is also included, which you will be able to continue long after the session to advance in your skills. Obviously, all elements will be checked in practice, when shooting at target. Usually short weapons are being used during basic training.
After completing such course, you can attend higher levels of shooting education, to further deepen your knowledge about shooting and grind your skills. It is obvious, that regular trainings are required in achieving great success. Without attending to a nearby shooting range, you will not obtain skills introduced to you on the courses. Practice makes perfect – in shooting as well as everywhere else.
For example in Cracow Shooting Academy, you will find such courses as:
- Dynamic shooting with short weapons
- Usage of short weapons against multiple enemies
- Shooting with short weapons in limited visibility conditions
- Shooting at moving targets with short weapons
- Shooting with short weapons while riding car
Usually courses take around ten hours and oscillate around practicing specific situations. Their proffesional character derrives mainly from the ability of Cracow Shooting Academy to creaet a different set of environmental and task conditions. Reality of such situations is the most important thing and it is well addresed in this place. On the basic courses of weapon handling, which will involve using pistols in self-defense, great impact is placed within the psychological and emotional aspect, since using weapon during real situation is very different than shooting at target, and technical abilities may happen to be insufficient. However the weaponless training is also important as muscle memory will sometimes trigger before the mind will stop our actions. That’s why it is worth to begin with such theme and don't forget your basic training, while additionaly trying some of the specific courses.
