If you are here you are probably a bit like me: a bullseye enthusiast that is trying to improve his/her marksmanship skills.
I’m a new addict to precision shooting, and I can’t get enough. From the first days of just shooting competition after competition and expecting to get better, I’ve come to the point where I want to train to really get much better and faster.
Shooting ranges are full of great people that offer a lot of tips, but depending on your location it can be really hard to find somebody to train you. I live in Belgium but had to get a trainer in Spain because I could not get anybody here (I even contacted the national federation), but working long distance was not as good as expected. I’m still on the lookout for a trainner if possible in Brussels, or at least not too far away.
There are some good resources on the Internet, but they are hard to find, filter and coordinate to make a shooting training program.
As I’ve already done a lot of research, I think that the best way to help others is to share the best of what I find and figure out in the olympic pistol blog. There will be content coming directly from books and sites, from my own experience, and also from trainers and experienced shooters.

Today is the day! After a while of thinking about it, I’ve decided to launch the Olympic Pistol website to help others like me who love bullseye shooting and want to improve through training.
I’m no master. I started shooting on April 30 2017. I’ve shot enough to develop and addiction for precision pistol shooting, and to want to improve myself a lot more.
Since I started shooting I’ve gotten a lot of good tips from the members of my shooting range in Brussels: La defense. Special thanks for their kindness and help to Rene, Jean-Luc, Philippe, Marc, Andrea, Denis and many others that share their experience and knowledge with me.
The problem that I’ve encountered is that it is really hard to find somebody to help me train and also to find good sources to make your own training program.
To help those that find themselves wanting to train and improve, I’m going to share here what I learn. Some of the training help will come from readings, some from my experience, some from other shooters…
What matters to me is to improve my shooting and to help other pistols shooters train.
Looking forward to a lot of great shooting sensations and scores!
What is Olympic Pistol About?
Olympic Pistol is about pistol training and learning: technical, mental and physical preparation for the ISSF pistol disciplines.
Why Did I Create Olympic Pistol?
I’m new to pistol shooting and I love the sport, but I’m having trouble finding help and sources to train. The sport pistol sport has a great community always willing to give a tip, but very few people and resources are available to those that want to train (like me) and not just shoot.
Who is Olympic Pistol For?
Every pistol shooter that wants to improve their precision and speed shooting skills and share their progress and techniques.
