What is the Best Method for Learning to Shoot a Machine Pistol?

  • Use 3 Rounds
  • Fill the Clip
  • Brace with Shoulder
  • Use Tracer Rounds

Answer: Use 3 Rounds

Although the number doesn’t have to be exactly three, avoid loading the magazine to full capacity. As you can see in the video, machine pistols tend to have an ongoing kick. Start out with just a few rounds in the magazine until you have a better feel for the gun. Then, you can better judge just how much of an ongoing kick you’re dealing with. Tracer rounds aren’t going to help at all and you can’t brace it with your shoulder, because it’s a pistol.
