Pinpoint Shooting Accuracy or Lightning-Fast Speed?

shooting accuracy vs speed

Yes! As the name implies, here at Center Mass Group we teach our students to quickly find the biggest target available at that moment, set their sights on the center of it and fire for effect. But with that we also need to constantly remind our shooters, “You can’t miss fast enough.” That means for instance that if you decide you’re going to slap the trigger like it owes you money because it’s faster; you’re going to (quickly) throw your rounds all around the guy shooting at you, hoping that he doesn’t have the discipline to slowly press back on his trigger with you in his sights. Let’s see…if I slap the trigger fast 10 times, 1 round is bound to hit him!
