Notes from My Pistol Training with Daniel Goberville

This year for my birthday I offered myself a training with Daniel Goberville in France, just three hours away from home. He’s the father and trainer of Céline Goberville (#2 in the World Ranking and Olympic silver medalist) and has been in charge of training for the French national team. The session was very interesting […]

Résumé de mon entrainement avec le préparateur olympique Daniel Goberville

Cette année pour mon anniversaire je me suis offert une séance d’entrainement de pistolet à air (discipline olympique à 10m) avec Daniel Goberville à Creil (France), à peine à trois heures en voiture de chez moi. Il est le papa et préparateur de Céline Goberville (#2 dans le ranking mondial et médaille d’argent dans les […]

Rapid Fire Pistol Basics / RFP 101

Download the printable PDF  The rapid fire pistol disciplines are lots of fun and very challenging: rapid fire with 5 targets, duel with 3 seconds to shoot and 7 between shots, standard with 5 shots in 10 seconds in the same target… I tried them out at first just to have a taste and now I’m […]

Long Distance Remote Training Has Not Worked for Me So Far

So far remote training has not really worked for me. I’ve had the chance to meet a great coach and to work with him in person once, but with the arrival of the new baby I have been unable to take a plane to bridge the 1800 km that separate us. It is like a […]

Pistol Shooting Training Diary / Journal / Log (Free Download)

Download the pistol shooting journal/log/diary (printable PDF and Word) I’ve been keeping my shooting stats from the first day I started shooting. Soon after, when I started to feel the addiction growing, I also started keeping a diary following the wise advise of Jean-Luc (my club’s air shooting director) and what I read in With […]

My First Pistol Cheat Sheets

I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately about how to train my technique and mind for pistol shooting. My notes are a bit too extensive and it is difficult to refer to them in training to make sure that I act upon a few points beyond the goals of my training session. This is my […]

Living with the Slump

The slump is tough. Since I got back from vacation my shooting stats have not improved. Some things have regressed, others are not getting better. I’m training better than before, with a more structured approach with the help of a coach. My shoulder and arm strength have improved. Errors that used to be low, are now […]

My First Precision Air Pistol Training Program

After a shooting test to see my trends, my coach (Santiago Gómez Salgado) sent this as a first generic training to get going before we met (I live 1800 km away). There are two training programs, one for home and one for the range. I’ve blocked three days a week to go to the range. […]

My Shooting Stats Tracking Spreadsheet

Luckily for me my shooting range has air pistol electronic targets connected to a printer. Following the advice of Jean-Luc, from my very first day I’ve kept a copy of my results everytime I’ve shot a 60 shot competition in training. After a while, as my addiction to pistol shooting grew, I decided to keep track […]
