In Pistol Shooting: Follow-through means to maintain aiming (perfect sight alignment and acceptable sight picture), breath control, hold control, and trigger control until the gun settles back into the aiming area after firing. Grip- Important factor of hold control! Range Safety - Check yourself Alcohol and/or drugs should never be consumed and/or used when handling or will be handling firearms. The first thing you do when you pick up any gun, at any time is to check to see if it's loaded. Before you pick up or accept a gun from someone, make sure you know how it works. If you don't know or can't remember, don't be embarrassed to ask someone to show you, it's the smart thing to do. When handing a gun to someone, remove the magazine if it has one; open the cylinder or lock open the action and look in the gun including the chamber, to make sure it is not loaded. Then with the cylinder or action still locked open, hand the unloaded gun to the person with the muzzle pointing away from them and in a safe direction (always be aware of muzzle direction (loaded or unloaded)). That person will then take possession of the gun and also check it for ammunition out of respect of the gun and the person who just handed it to them. The recipient is then clear to close the cylinder or action and inspect the gun. When the gun is handed back or to the next person, the same process is followed each and every time.
