The One Truth

This is how you should grip a pistol. This is how you should pull the trigger. This is the best gun. This is the best load for Production division. This is the best stance.

I could go on, but I’ll spare you. I’ve noticed that the shooting community, and maybe humanity as a whole, has a hard time accepting that there may be more than one correct solution to a problem. Arguments go round and round discussing grip, stance, loads, guns, and just about everything else, and much of the time folks completely miss the point: What matters is the hits on the target.

If you can grip a gun 3 different ways, and you can shoot as fast and accurate each way, does it matter which way you grip it? I don’t think so.

So, why do we waste time arguing over the one true answer to a problem, when there may very well be many answers?

I don’t know. Maybe it’s the level of bravado that inevitably comes along with guns, maybe it’s that people in general just want to be right, but I don’t know. I do know that there isn’t just one answer to every problem.
