If you are considering entering the world of competitive shooting, you will need to be careful about choosing a gun. Even if you have experience using handguns, the competition field is different and requires distinct standards. When you are looking for the right tools for the job, consider the following factors to obtain the most successful gun for competitions.
1. Faster Trigger
Some competitions will require you to fire fast and with ease. When looking for competition handguns, single out the ones that have a light trigger. The easier the trigger is to pull, the faster you can fire the handgun. Additionally, combine the lighter trigger with a positive reset so you easily know when it is safe to fire each shot.
2. Extra Magazines
Another aspect to look for when choosing between potential guns is the ability to have several magazines at your disposal. The capability of having more than one magazine is important in case of a malfunction or error in the middle of a game. In fact, some competitions require multiple magazines. If you are starting out, use a semi-automatic gun, since this gun has removable magazines and more user flexibility.
3. Overall Comfort
The most important feature of a handgun, especially in the competitive field, is the comfort you feel when using it. If you are uncomfortable using a specific handgun, you might not use it effectively during competition. Alternatively, you might not feel encouraged to use it and start practicing less. Try out different handguns and measure how you feel using each one. Take into account the factors that contribute to the comfort you feel.
Just as with any competitive activity, you want to make sure you use the right tools for the competition and for yourself. Take the time, do the research and carefully try out each handgun’s features before selecting your ideal choice.
