Air pistol shooting is a sport which is added to Olympics in 1988. In this sport, we have a target whose dimensions are 17 cm by 17 cm and it has 10 counts as points. A shooter has to stand at a distance of 10 m from the target and fire a shot best possible by holding the pistol with one hand.
As per the basic understanding it is a simple shooting game which a player has to play. Well let’s move to our history where we had a legend of marvelous war of Mahabharata which stands on the grounds of ‘ Dharma ‘ and we have many warriors in it.
There is a well-known incident of Mahabharata. Where teacher Dhrondacharya was teaching a lesson of archery to some of his students, where he was first asking each one of them about what do you see and according to the answer he decides whether to allow them to shoot or not. Most of them said all the things that were visible but one student, Arjuna was also there, said eyeball where he has to shoot and he was the only student who was allowed by Acharya Dhronacharya to shoot the arrow on that day in class. He was Prince ‘Arjuna’ and he was the best-known archer of all time.
As per the incident stated what was the extraordinary qualities that were seen in the answer. I wonder it’s nothing but stability.
Stability is a trait he had when he was aiming towards the target.
Same goes for air pistol shooting if a shooter holds that pistol he must clear his mind with all the disturbances and negative thoughts. With a stable mind our body learns a stable co-ordination with the muscles and that will help in the perfect shot.
The grip is also a very important factor for aiming perfectly. The strong grip is very useful in aiming and shooting with stability.
A shooter must know about the various technologies and the latest features about the pistols in the market. A judicious use of this knowledge in the game is one of the best traits to win the shooting game.
