    If you're handgun hunting, in all likelihood, you'll be shooting from cover. Use a two-handed hold and whatever rest is readily available (fencepost, fallen tree, etc.). If possible, use the sitting position, with your arms supported by your knees. If the terrain or vegetation will permit shooting from the prone position without obscuring the target, fire from the prone. Practice in all positions with the sidearm and the loads you intend to use for the hunt, and use a cartridge that is adequate and suitable to the game animal you hope to drop.

      Push/pull. When you are holding the pistol with two hands push away from yourself with the hand on the grip (right hand for righties), and pull towards yourself with the hand that wraps over the other.

        two handed hold your breath, and like with a bow the smaller of a target you aim at the tighter the groups will be so for cheap targets i use pizza boxes and shoot a the little guys on the box or i put a sticky note on the box and shoot at that

          when you wrap your hands around your pistol, point both of your thumbs towards the target. This helps me anyways

            Shoot from a sitting position. One hand tight on the grip, one hand cupped underneath, gripping hard. Rest your forearms on your lower thighs. Take a deep breath, let it half out, tense every muscle in your body and pull.
