Many people confuse general “shooting skill” or “marksmanship” with the skills involved in using a firearm to defend one’s self or others. In general shooting, one is most often trying to maximize their control over the gun, so that they can shoot the most precise group of rounds possible, or constantly challenge themselves to hit harder and harder targets. World class shooting skills can take months or years to develop. In most defensive shooting situations, the targets are relatively large and close. The fundamental defensive shooting skills can be learned very quickly. In this video, Gander Mountain Academy’s Nick Smith discusses these issues with Rob Pincus.
