As many of us know, pistols are often where most shooters have misses and lose or win a stage. It takes a lot of practice to be successful and gain the skills necessary to effectively shoot single action revolvers under time in a stage. Spend a lot of time drawing and testing your grip. This is often where you can gain or lose a lot of time. Bear in mind that every miss that you avoid will save you five seconds on a stage.
One of the things that is very hard to remember when on the clock is that you are far better off taking an extra two seconds to line up your shot than it is to rush a shot and miss the target. Keep practicing the skills until they become second nature.
The following video will help you to learn the basic pistol gun handling skills you will need to master this part of the sport.
