What Should Your Pie Chart Look Like

What is the shooting pie chart? A pistol correction chart as it is sometimes called, is a chart that promises a quick fix for issues you are having with your groupings.

Probably the most misused training tool in shooting and often used incorrectly. Essentially these zones on the pie chart misdiagnose real issues. Watch the video to understand the only things that matter in a traditional pie chart.


This is one of the only real things on the pie chart. As a right handed shooter you can push the right thumb into the gun and it will push your bullets to the right. The oposite will happen to left handed shooters. Often times “missed” shots are due to thumbing the gun.


Not to be confused with anticipation or recoil anticipation. This would be pushing the gun forward and your rounds hit lower. Direct cause and effect of “pushing” to much.
