In my journey to pistol mastery, these are the latest 7 errors I’ve discovered and fixed. I’m always looking for ways to improve things, but some parts of shooting become so integrated that I stop thinking about them and then they may degrade or I may change something in my technique.
I have compiled the best of my shooting knowledge in this document: the processes everything related to technique and mental for every pistol discipline (precision and rapid fire) and distance (10m, 25m, and 50m). This is the live document that I use as reference to prepare for training and competition, the guide that helps me remember and focus on how to do things well. I will update it as I change things and evolve. I can’t go back to check all my shooting journals to remind myself how to shoot well, and find one useful information here, another there, and something that is not longer relevant in another document. Time to bite the bullet and write my very own pistol shooting Bible.
After my loooooong break from pistol shooting while studying, I finally came back to ASTir Creil to train with the MOP team, Aurore and Daniel Goberville. Following the French season calendar, the team was back to training to prepare the 10m French National Championship. This is what we did.
With the help of Paul Hughes and the community of shooters around him, I’ve finally made a comprehensive goals document for 2023 and the years to come, based on his Big Hairy Audacious Goals. You can find everything here: from why I shoot to my process and outcome goals, and how I plan to execute them. Having this goals framework will help me do a lot less work every year.
A new MOP training plan focused on 25m pistol and is a follow up of training plan 1 and training plan 2, under the direction of coach Daniel Goberville. Challenges, new final format training, medal matches… all for Precision and Rapid Fire Pistol (RFP). A whole day of training at the 25m range 🙂
This MOP training plan focuses on 25m pistol and is a follow up of this training plan. Under the direction of coach Daniel Goberville we spent a full day training at the 25m range and it was great to be outdoors for a change (the ASTir Creil range has really nice installations), although my thumb ended up sore from all the loading, which was a great incentive to find ways to protect it.
This is the first in a series of four full day MOP team group training plans with coach Daniel Goberville to prepare the French 25m Pistol national championships. Air pistol training is also included to keep the skill and to improve for all other pistol shooting.

Don’t be afraid to click. Changes in lighting, contrast, and your own body mean that you will be clicking not only when you change ranges, but also as a match or training session progress. There’s no such thing as a “zero” or perfect sight alignment for pistol shooting. The point of impact with the exact same pistol and settings will change from shooter to shooter, as we all size differently and the relationship of our eyes, body, and sights change from person to person.
