A top Army shooter who recently made history in the premiere action pistol shooting competition has a simple tip for handgun marksmanship that doesn’t require bullets – dry fire until you can achieve ideal trigger control.
Sgt. 1st Class Adam Sokolowski, 39, has shot competitively since he was 12 years old but first entered the National Rifle Association National Action Pistol Championship, known as the Bianchi Cup, in 2015.
Since then he has won the production division, the metallic division and this year the open division. He’s the first shooter to claim each division in three consecutive years in the 40-year history of the competition.
Oh, and last year, when he shot the metallic sights division, he shot the first-ever perfect score.
