Follow-Through: A Shooting Fundamental, Demonstrated

It can be hard to describe this underrated aspect of accuracy verbally ... so here's what it looks like!

posted on October 27, 2021

Follow-through may be one of the most underrated fundamentals of accurate shooting, and one of the reasons why may be that it can be tough to put into words why you, as a shooter, aren't done when the shot breaks. Essentially, follow-through is the final step in the integrated act of firing the shot. Follow-through is the glue that holds the other fundamentals together and makes firing the perfect shot possible. There are lots of great articles on the subject, but (as our own Becky Yackley recently pointed out), sometimes it makes more sense to demonstrate.

In this quick video from Smith & Wesson's GUNSMARTS series, instructor Ken Scott shows you exactly what we mean when we talk abut follow-through ... and how it can improve your accuracy significantly.
