hi all shooters,

I'm reading my range report/shooting files that I used sharing with my training buddies, and, noting that respect to past I'm giving more importance to basic shooting skills, I ask your help to defining the ULTIMATE IPSC BASIC FUNDAMENTALS LIST.

For me in random order: Grip/Stance/Movement/Precision (I mean sight picture-trigger control-follow through)/Focus.

Or you consider fundamental Draw,Reloading,and others strictly practical (IPSC) skills?

The true fundamentals are sight alignment and trigger control. Everything else is important, but has a supporting role.
The drive to want to win is only an asset when it pushes you to practice better/more and develop your mental game. When you let it make decisions for you in a match it is never your friend. It will sing the siren song of shooting beyond your skill sets with predictable unpleasant results. The skills you bring that day are the only skills you have. No amount of desire will change that. Shoot your own game. Let the results sort themselves out after the match. My bet is that not only will you do better but you will enjoy the sport more. Rick Korzep.

BE, you beat me to it.

"Hold the gun in alignment with the target until the bullet has left the barrel." - sums up fundamentals for me. To me everything else seems like a technique to improve shooting character; consistency, accuracy, speed, awareness, enlightenment etc.

This forum is a great resource!

Have an up-to-date link available? That one's returning a 404 in a frame on a very shady-looking site.

The site, Encyclopedia of bullseye pistol, is having problems. Hopefully they will have it back up soon.

For USPSA or IPSC, drawing and reloading and all that are fundamental. You can't get very far in the sport without knowing how to do those things. Marksmanship fundamentals (being able to fire an accurate shot) is also important, but it is just the start of what you need to be able to do.

To me the fundamentals start with BALANCE. BALANCE equals the ability to transition from stance to stance and position to position while maintaining control of the gun and proper sight alignment.
