Shoot-N-Iron Practical Shooting & Training Academy
During almost any week that passes, Shoot-N-Iron Academy receives several inquires about Basic Pistol Shooting. Many of the folks say they have just acquired their concealed carry SDA license and now have a new handgun. Several say they have used rifles and shotguns, but never before had much to do with pistols. We thought we might pass on a few tips that just may be of value to you.
Do not buy your firearm strictly upon price alone. There are handguns on the market that are about as dangerous to the shooter as they are to the shootee. Some dealers are more interested in making a quick sale instead of helping you find the handgun that you actually need.
A good rule of thumb is that at today’s prices, any pistol not costing $150 or better just may not be worth taking home and may not do the job you want done. Stick with the major brands in choosing your pistol and you won’t go wrong.
The first recommendation we have is that you select a handgun that is right for your purpose. Some of the questions you should consider are (1) What do I want the firearm for? (2) Am I going to carry it on my person or am I just going to carry it in my automobile…. or maybe just keep it at home for protection there? (3) Am I going to use it for just self-defense, or am I going to plink with it or even shoot some type of competition? or all of the above?
Another consideration is: find a handgun that fits you. It should fit into your hand comfortably. If you are going to carry the pistol concealed on your person, then the size of the weapon certainly comes into the picture.
The next item for thought is what caliber do I want? The door is wide open on this question. Probably more bad guys have been shot with the little .22 calibers than any other and this is possibly due to more people owning these guns than any other caliber. While the .22′s are easy to handle and may be fired a lot at low ammunition cost for practice, plinking, hunting, etc., they are not necessarily what I would choose for self-defense. While not recommending the .25′s and .32 calibers, just about any caliber from .22 up through .45 will work.
Learn how your pistol operates. Know where the latches, buttons, and releases are located. All pistols have them and they are not always located in the same places. Learn to load and unload your firearm safely and quickly. One should practice loading and reloading as often as possible. Loading the weapon correctly and quickly on the range or in a defensive situation is a must.
In a defensive confrontation stance is not really as important as it would be if you were shooting in competition. When defending one’s self you probably will not have time to, consciously, set your feet in a certain stance or position. In target shooting, where real tight, small shot groups are desirable, stance is very important.
When possible, place the weak side or non-shooting side foot approximately 12-inches in front of the strong side foot and spread them approximately 16 to 18 inches apart. Bend the front knee slightly and place about sixty to seventy percent of your weight out over that knee. This will give you a good, balanced stance. Keep your head up and straight on to the target. Your shoulders should be pretty much square to the target.
When shooting with both hands, place the weak or non-shooting hand around the grip from the off side, wrapping the fingers around and over the strong side fingers. Avoid placing the off side thumb up and over the back of the other hand. If shooting a semi-auto, the slide may strike the thumb on recoil. If this should occur, you won’t like the resulting slice on top of the thumb.
Accuracy will also be affected with either autos or revolvers. Do not place the weapon and strong hand in the palm of the support or weak hand as this will let the pistol roll during firing, thus causing erratic hits on the target.
Place your shooting hand high on the back strap, the rearward portion of the pistol’s grip. Extend your trigger finger down the side of the firearm, keeping it outside the trigger guard until you’re on target and ready to shoot. Align the web (that portion of the shooting hand located between the thumb and trigger finger) as near straight with the wrist and the firearm as possible. Wrap the fingers around the trip, while applying pressure front and back to the grip.
This segment of shooting basics is the most important part of learning to shoot. Whether you’re shooting a pistol or rifle, a good sight picture is a must. Your eye must focus on the front sight and it should be sharp and clear in your vision.
The top of the front sight will be placed in the notch of the rear sight which will appear slightly blurred. The top of the front sight should be level with the top of the rear sight and an equal amount of light should be seen on either side of the front sight. The point on the target you wish your bullet to strike would be placed on top of the front sight. The target will be somewhat blurred.
Most misses are caused by the shooter’s eyes being focused on the target rather than the front sight.
This part of shooting is probably the second most important operation in shooting. If you are shooting a semi-auto and are in the single action mode, place the pad of the last joint of your trigger finger on the center of the trigger. Avoid letting your finger drag on the floor of the trigger guard as this will cause low points of impact on your target.
If you are shooting double action on either autos or revolvers, place your finger on the trigger at the first knuckle joint of the trigger finger instead of the pad or tip as is done when shooting single action.
Do not yank or jerk the trigger. Apply a steady rearward motion until the gun fires. Avoid pushing across or pulling across the trigger. Both of these errors are very common mistakes. Make sure the pressure you apply on the trigger is straight back and not side to side.
We know the tips we’ve listed are not the only things that it takes to be a good shot, but they are essential. Always shoot and practice in a place that is designated for such purposes. If you are not now a member of a shooting club, join one. You will enjoy the experience.
Always be sure of your target and what is located beyond. Remember if you fire a shot, the bullet is going to hit something. You surely want it to hit exactly what you desire and nothing else.
Good practice is the key. Shoot a lot and shoot often. If you need help, there are many good people in ORA’s affiliated clubs around the state who will be more than happy to help you along the right road to good marksmanship. If by some chance you can not find the help you want, we’ll be available. Come see us.

Shoot-N-Iron Practical Shooting & Training Academy
In early September my telephone rang and when I answered it was my three-year-old niece from Arkansas singing “Happy Birthday” to me. That was great, but then she said, “You sure are old”. I didn’t really need to be reminded of that fact even though it is true.
When the call came in I happened to be holding a Remington pocket Derringer chambered in .41-caliber rimfire. Yeah, it is an original and I wish it had a home in my safe, but like my getting younger, it is not about to happen. A very good friend is the proud owner of this little gun and intends to keep it that way. I have a copy made by “brand X” in .38 Special caliber that actually shoots pretty well at close ranges.
Guns of this or similar designs have been around since the 1700′s at least. Small pocket pistols were originally single shot muzzleloaders and were flintlock, or later, percussion primed. Good citizens–and the not so good folks–liked the small, concealable handguns. Later, the two shot versions and still later, a multi-shot piece called the “Pepper Box” and a few other similar pocket pistols became popular.
There were numerous designs, calibers and configurations of small but deadly pistols available in the early days. Colt made at least three different single shot rimfire and centerfire Derringers. Remington produced the “Elliot”, which was a strange looking beast in .32 caliber along with the famous over and under double barreled derringer in .41 rimfire. There was one called “Reid’s, MY Friend, Knucklebuster”, also in .32 caliber. Colt had a small pocket revolver in both .32 and .38 calibers, and Smith & Wesson’s sequel was the “pocket .32″–none of which had trigger guards. Several companies came out with small pocket size, break-top revolvers in .32 to .44 caliber.
Colt and Smith & Wesson both had short-barreled handguns: Colt’s “Store Keeper” and S&W’s “Short Schofield”. These were actually cut down versions of their larger single action pistols that were very popular in that day and time. Both were pretty fair hideout guns. Not too long after 1900 both Colt and Smith & Wesson brought out short barreled five and six shot double action pistols in their revolver lines. Small semi-automatics in various calibers came along and were very popular before, during, and since the “Roaring 20′s”. One of the most popular gangster autos was Colt’s “Pocket Automatic” chambered in both .380 and .32 auto rounds. They were small and fit the body flat, and were very concealable and comfortable to carry. A lot of these old guns are still in use today.
Colt made both the “Detective Special” and the “Cobra” (the air-weight version), chambered in .38 Long Colt and .38 Special six-shot models until just a few years ago. Both were dropped from production but I have heard that they may be brought back onto the market. Smith & Wesson made a six shot snub nose in the old Military and Police guns that later was dubbed the “Model 10″ and could be acquired with either a square or round butt grip. This gun was built on a “K” or medium size frame.
Later, Smith & Wesson came out with their little “J” framed, five shot revolvers also in .38 Special. These guns were, and are, in several configurations including the “Chief Special” with an external hammer, the “Body Guard” with its shrouded external hammer and the “Centennial”, which had an internal hammer system. The early “Centennial” models had a grip squeeze safety located on the grip backstrap, which was a carry over from the Smith break top or “Lemon Squeezer” produced in the early 1900′s. On the newer model Centennials the grip safety has been discontinued. Smith & Wesson now makes all of their “J” frame guns in .357 magnum and they will of course still shoot the .38 Special cartridge. I personally feel that for most people there is too much recoil with the .357 magnum round in this small frame gun. It’s great if you can handle the “buck and beller” but most people can’t hold it well enough to get back on target rapidly; besides, it hurts your hand.
Ruger has an excellent five-hole revolver dubbed the “SP101″. This little cannon comes with a rubberized factory grip that cushions the recoil somewhat. It, too, is in .357 magnum and also fires the .38 Special rounds. Again, I feel that it is somewhat overpowered in .357. The .38 Special +P’s will work well at close range and are much more comfortable to shoot.
Now days there are literally dozens of makes and models in both revolvers and semi-autos that are small and very concealable. Some of these do not fit the true picture for a pocket pistol. The S&W “J” frames, Ruger’s “SP101″, along with revolver clones by Taurus, Rossi, and Charter Arms, do fill the bill. I personally carry a nickel plated Smith & Wesson old model 49 “Bodyguard” loaded with 158 grain soft cast Keith type semi-wadcutters, over a maximum powder charge. I’ve carried the gun for forty years when I am unable to pack a bigger more powerful pistol. I do not now, nor have I ever felt undergunned while packing this little pocket rocket even though I prefer a larger caliber and higher capacity handgun for defensive usage.
Colt, Kimber, Springfield, Smith & Wesson, Ruger, Taurus, Khar, Beretta and Kel-Tec, to mention just a few, all make very small and compact semi-autos that work well. They all have guns chambered for most of the popular calibers. I feel that the .380 caliber is as small as I want for a primary defense gun as it is a light weight with little stopping power, even though James Bond #007 used in all of his movies and one-shot killed everybody on the screen. It really doesn’t work quite that easy or well. I do know of several occasions when the .380′s, the little .32′s and even the high-speed .22 Long Rifle rounds have done in bad guys quiet nicely.
I still do not recommend the .25 caliber automatics for self-defense. It just does not have the stopping power needed to do the job. I might add I saw a fellow shoot another man square in the forehead with a little .22 short and it lodged against the outer wall of the skull. The intended victim literally beat the hell out of the attacker and did not suffer many ill effects from the wound. The bullet was removed in the Emergency Room and the man was released. Thick headed, I guess.
The Derringers that we mentioned earlier are still around and in calibers from .22 up to and including .44 magnum. I don’t think I care much for the big .44′s. In fact, these guns are really dangerous. They can fire accidentally if dropped or bumped and in the larger calibers these guns are not normally made strong enough to be safe with that amount of chamber pressure. One of the safer two-shot Derringer is the double action High Standard. These Derringers in .22 Long Rifle and .22 magnum work with a long double action trigger pull and that in itself is the safety feature. Even though High Standard Company is no longer in existence and these guns are not in production there are some of these guns still around. They work very well if you are unable to carry something better. One of these guns rode in my shirt pocket for many years. North American Arms has a little Derringer that is a five hole in both 22 LR and 22 magnum calibers. They are a little hard to hit with at any distance, but up close and personal they will work and are extremely small and can be hidden in the palm of your hand. You do not have to have excellent accuracy if you shove the gun up his nose. Please note that none of the tiny pistols are really designed as first line defensive firearms but they will work in a pinch.
Proper bullet placement with any of the small caliber pocket pistols is necessary as they do not have the stopping power that is available with the .357 magnum or any of the .40, .41, .44 and .45 calibers. At extreme close ranges–and that is where most personal attacks occur–headshots work best. The longer your attacker is upright and or conscious the greater your chances are of being killed or injured. The attack has to be stopped as near instantly as possible. Pinpoint accuracy is not a must if you shove the pistol into the bad guy’s face. I doubt if he will care or know the difference as to whether you are shooting a .22 or a .45 under that circumstance.
Oklahoma’s Concealed Carry Law, S.D.A., does not prohibit a permit holder from carrying a backup pistol. I highly recommend that you do so. Ideally, the backup piece is of the same caliber and make and model as the primary pistol. This way ammunition, magazines or speed loaders are interchangeable. You want as big and powerful a handgun for backup as possible. You won’t need it unless you are in deep trouble, wounded, or have lost the use of your primary pistol. Under those circumstances I really want something bigger than a .22. However if twin guns are not possible and you carry a large frame semi-auto or revolver as your primary concealed weapon, you may choose, as I have on many occasions, to carry a little “J” frame Smith or equivalent as the backup. I know a lady that carries a Compact Kimber 1911, in .45 ACP in an inside-the-pants holster in her waistband under a loose fitting blouse, plus a little Kel-Tec .32 automatic in her bra. She says this works very well. Both guns are totally concealed and are within easy access if she has to grab one. This is not my choice, but it works for her!
Somehow my little Smith & Wesson “Bodyguard” with its homemade Elk horn grips (I ate the Elk that grew the grips) fits my needs very well. It also sports a Melvin Tyler T-Grip adapter that fills out the hollow space at the front of the small grip. It feels good in either hand. It won’t snag or drag as it comes out of my pants or jacket pocket. It can even be carried in a boot holster or shoulder rig. These Pocket Revolvers can be fired from inside a coat or jacket pocket with no effort or warning. One can even walk around in the mall with your fingers wrapped around the gun’s grip inside a coat pocket and no one is the wiser. You are ready for action if it’s called for.
These guns can be much faster getting into action than their big brothers because their use can come as a complete surprise. No, it is not my normal concealed carry choice because I am one of those “Full Figured Folks” that can conceal a larger and more powerful pistol upon my person. I do use the little snubbie a lot during the summer when clothing is thin and I don’t want to wear much to cover it up, and also in the winter when heavy clothing restricts my ability to draw my primary pistol quickly.
Pocket Pistols have been around for an awfully long time and will be here long after I’m gone. That is, they will be here unless we close our eyes and let the anti-gunners get them outlawed. These guns are not” Saturday night specials”. They work every night and even in the daylight.
Keep your Pocket Pistol handy. In this day and time you just may need it. Besides, sometimes it’s better to be sneaky than real good.

In the handgun stakes, Beretta wins – hands down. The automatic choice of marksmen, sportsmen, law enforcement and the military worldwide, Beretta pistols carry with them their own cachet and reputation.
Deservedly so: a Beretta pistol is both a triumph of design and reliable performance, offering the user the optimal combination of form and function.
Beretta Pistols are available in five distinct categories:
Although light and super compact, these Beretta semi-automatic pistols are no less precise. They are as secure and reliable as their bigger, more famous relatives. The blowback locking system and open top slide are common features as is the tip-up barrel, which allows a rapid inspection of the barrel and maximum safety in reloading cartridges in the chamber. All models have a “V” rear sight and a blade front sight for rapid acquisition of the target. They are manufactured in Maryland, USA for the American market.
They are the result of experience and technical knowledge that Beretta has acquired and perfected over time. The Beretta compact pistol range was principally designed for personal defense. The products in this range offer great fire capacity, reliability and durability as well as requiring little maintenance. Nearly all the features of the famous Beretta 92 model are present in these models: the open top slide, single or double action, automatic safety and manual safety on both sides with decocking lever. The magazine release lever is reversible for left handed shooters.
The “full size” Beretta pistols (92 model and its derivatives) were specifically designed and manufactured for the military. After adoption by the United States Armed Forces, many other militaries and police corps have opted for these pistols. Its great firing capacity unites with its total reliability and safety to make an ideal combat firearm.The 92 model offers a long list of qualities that makes it the best in its category: single or double action, alloy frame, no glare finish, ambidextrous safety lever, reversible magazine release, open top slide, chamber loaded indicator, unique triple safety, rear sight for impromptu aiming and much more. It offers an incredible combination of powerful firing, precision, safety and reliability making it a simply fantastic firearm.
Designed and manufactured in America by Beretta USA Corp., the new U22 Neos semiautomatic pistol is a single action, 22LR caliber firearm. Designed for the entry-level pistol shooters, it is ideal for training and plinking but can be adapted to the advanced shooter’s needs. Despite being richly accessorized, the Neos is on the market at an affordable price.
Designed for competition and training, Beretta’s 87 Target pistol is the heir of the famous 76 and 89 models. Features fixed barrels with a monolithic structure, security lever on both sides and interchangeable front sights. It has an adjustable rear sight for elevation and windage, semi anatomical grips and an adjustable over travel.
Beretta is proud to introduce the new Stampede series single-action revolvers. The Stampede meticulously replicates the dimensions, cosmetics, and feel of the legendary Old West sidearm, while discreetly incorporating the most modern safety features and manufacturing materials for which Beretta is rightfully famous. The dimensions of this revolver have been carefully researched to closely match the 19th-Century originals. Finely-crafted presentation cases are also available.

What is the modern handgun? Why is this piece of crafted metal and
(recently) hard plastics still in great demand not only in military forces
and police departments ALL around the world? The answers are: They are
small, lightweight (well, most of them and provide good firepower;
suitable, not only for defensive situations, but for offensive ones, and
even for medium game hunting. Of course, for each situation, careful choice
of the proper handgun AND ammunition must be made. Handguns are divided
into a few classes: semi-autos (or pistols), revolvers, and non-autos
(single or multibarreled, single-shot or magazine fed).
One of the latest semi-auto handguns – SigSauer SIG-Pro Semi-autos use part
of the energy produced by burning cartridge
powder to remove the used cartridge from the chamber, cock the hammer (or
striker) and load a new cartridge in the chamber,
so the pistol will be ready for the next shot. Cartridges are usually fed
from a box magazine, located in the pistol’s handle.
Box magazines may contain up to 15 cartridges (or more) in single or double
columns, depending on the pistol model, and
are easy (and very quick) to reload.
Customized revolver with heavy barrel. Cylinder in open position Revolvers
got their name from the rotating (or Revolving)
cylinder, which contains cartridges. Usually the cylinder holds from 5 to 7
loads, although some .22 caliber revolvers may
contain up to 8-10 cartridges. Loads in the cylinder may be reloaded in 2
ways (depending on revolver design) – one by one,
as, for example, the Colt PeaceKeeper does (and almost all old-timers), or
all simulateounosly – when the cylinder is switched
to the side or when the is frame “broke open.”
Both revolvers and semi-autos have two main “action styles”: Single action
and Double action.
Single Action means, that the Revolver must be manually cocked (and, thus,
the cylinder is rotated to the next cartridge)
for each shot. This mode was the only one available in all old-time
revolvers (such as the Peacekeeper), and is still
available in most double-action revolvers. This mode improves accuracy but
slows the fire rate. For Semi-autos,
Single Action means that the pistol must be manually cocked for the first
shot (usually, this is done by pulling the
slide – this action cocks the hammer and feeds a cartridge into the
chamber). For the second, and all consecutive shots,
cocking is done automatically, when recoil force pulls back the slide.
Double Action for the Revolver means that the hammer for each (including
the f irst) shot is cocked by trigger pull
(this action also rotates the cylinder to the next position). This mode
speeds up the firing rate and simplifies shooting
actions, but greatly increases trigger pull (from 2.2-4.4 lbs usually found
in single-actions, to 8.8-12.2 lbs in double-actions).
For the Semi-autos, the hammer is usually cocked by trigger pull for the
first shot only; the second and the rest are done in
single-action mode. However, first load must be fed in the chamber by the
slide pull. Some (most of them – compact) semi-autos
and revolvers employ Double-action-only mode, which cocks the trigger for
each shot, thus excluding single-action.
One of the biggest questions about handguns is: Why the Six-guns (a slang
TERM for Revolvers) are stil alive when there’s
a big lot of the very reliable and larger capacity semi-auto handguns? The
oldest answer is – reliability. Usually, given the
same price (in low- or mid-range of prices), the revolvers were more
reliable, primarily, because of the simplicity of the design.
Today there’s a lot of inexpensive semi-autos, that can hold twice or even
triple as much loads ready to fire, than the
common sixguns. But revolvers still alive. One of the main reasons to keep
the revolver is that they’re almost insencetive
to ammunition. If your cartridge is capable of pushing a bullet thru the
barrel of the sixgun – you got the working gun. No jams,
no stoppages. Even in the case of the misfire you just got to pull the
trigger again – and next round will go. In semi-auto, you
need sufficient power to cycle the slide, thus rendering underpowered loads
almost inoperable in semi-autos. Also, in case
of the misfire, or j
am, you should manually cycle the slide to fire the next round. In
defensive scenario, this may cos you another second, and
may be – your life. So, in general, sixguns are far less sensetive to ammo
quality, and, due to simplicity and inherent design
features, could withstand far more abuse. Also, when you go to the other,
high-end of the loads (speaking in the terms of power),
no semi-autos could withstand the power of loads such as .454casull or
.475Linebaugh. Sixguns could.
Main drawbacks of the sixguns are small ammo capacity, slower reloading and
bulkier size. While 6 rounds may be sufficien
for self-defence scenarios, it may be really insufficient for the police or
SpecOps actions. Also, replacing the magazine in
semi-auto ususlly is much faster process than reloading a revolvers’ drum.
And, due to significant cylinder diameter, even
the 5-shot revolvers are harder to carry concealed, than the modern compact
handguns, while the latter could hold tvice
as much cartridges.
Final selection of the guns is, undoubtfully, the owners’ responcebility,
but, in my opinion, revolvers are more suitable
for civilians’ self-defence and for hunting, while semi-autos are better
combat and police guns.
Thank You and Best Regards
