Many of the fundamentals of rifle firing also apply to handguns.
The way you load a handgun depends on whether it is a single-action revolver, a double-action revolver, or a semi-automatic.
Body position and grip are vital to hitting your target. With both hands, hold the handgun high on the grip and at arm’s length. Use a stable object as a rest when hunting.
The pistol-shooting fundamentals of breath control, trigger squeeze, and follow through are almost identical to those in rifle shooting.
Ear and eye protection are essential when shooting any firearm.
