Tips for Shooting a Glock


What is a Glock? Glock is a series of semi-automatic pistols designed and manufactured by Glock Ges.m.b.H in Austria. Gaston Glock was the companys founder. He specialized in advanced synthetic polymers and was responsible for the first successful line of pistols with a polymer frame. They are well known for their light weight, ruggedness and reliability.

Shooting a Glock is the same as shooting any similar automatic pistol. You need to practice the basics of correct sight picture, trigger squeeze, good grip and good stance. Dont over-practice. If you get tired you shooting will get sloppy and you will develop bad habits that are hard to break.

  • Dry firing your Glock is the best way to develop good trigger control.
  • Aim the gun at a target using the sights and pull the trigger normally. Keep looking at the sights. If the sights or target shift during or after trigger pull you need some work on your trigger pull. Practice dry firing by pulling the trigger slowly and smoothly. Try different amounts of finger pressure on the trigger. The key is not to let the sight picture move while you are pulling the trigger. Once you achieve this keep practicing until it becomes second nature to you.
  • After dry firing go to the range for some live fire.
  • Use bulls eye targets at close range (10-15 feet) to allow you to see the holes as you make them. This will provide instant feedback to correct your technique. Do not try to shoot fast. Shoot slowly and concentrate on your actions of pulling the trigger. Pull the trigger smoothly. Do not jerk it. Squeeze the trigger gradually such that when the round is fired it comes as a surprise to you. After the round is fired do not release the trigger fully, just release it enough so that it clicks. This will minimize finger movement and help keep the gun steady.
