Useful information about pistols and rifles for every gun lover out there.

Introduction

The main differences between pistols and rifles are pretty obvious. One of them is portable and one of them can be easily concealed. One is extremely easy to shoot accurately, and the other one requires some serious practice to master the shooting. But, there are other differences that are equally important between these two, so continue reading to find out what those are.

Because They Are Heavy, Rifles Are Easier For Accurate Shooting

People find it easier to shoot from rifles, mainly because they are heavy. To be more specific, long rifles are usually heavier than the actual force needed for pressing the trigger. A typical pistol that weighs around 2 pounds needs 5 to 12 pounds of force for pressing the trigger. Like this is not hard enough, the shooter also has to make sure not to move while fighting with the trigger resistance. And if you use a lighter pistol it will be hard to keep your hands still when you apply the force needed to fire it. The weight of a rifle goes something between 6 to 12 pounds, and the pressure needed to trigger it is between 2 to 6 pounds, which as you can see are the numbers and force you can deal with more ease.

More Weight Means Less Recoil

One of the best things when it comes to pistols is their light weight. But, one of the best things about rifles is their heavy weight. We cannot argue that a lightweight pistol is easier to carry, but when it comes to better recoil management, this is where rifles take the win. So, the heavier the weapon, the less recoil you are going to feel in your hands and on your shoulder. This means, if you want to feel less of that punishing recoil, you will have to lug more weight around, but in the end it all comes down to you.

Because They Have More Anchor Points, Rifles Are Easier For Accurate Shooting

Even though we do not in many cases feel very stable, our bodies are built to be very solid. When you are shooting from a rifle, there are at least a couple of points on your body that can help you anchor it. Your dominant side arm will be gripping the pistol grip or stock and when it comes to rifles, the buttstock relies on your shoulder pocket and when you are standing you are able to provide good support for your weapon.

When you are holding a pistol by using two hands, you are just anchoring it at one place, the grip. So, when you factor the things mentioned above, that very lack of anchor points is the biggest reason why it is so much easier to shoot from a rifle than from a pistol.

Because Of Their Longer Sight Radius, Rifles Are Easier For Accurate Shooting

The distance between the front sight and the rear one is called sight radius, and when it comes to pistols sight radius is usually 4 inches or even less. But, with rifles, it can be much farther. No matter what the distance is both front and rear sights need to be perfectly aligned for achieving an accurate shot. For instance, with a gun that has sight radius of 2 inches, if the alignment is only wrong by one millimeter, a target located at 25 yards will be missed by range of up to 18 inches. But with a rifle that has 16 inches of sight radius; the same target miss is limited to only 3 inches.

Conclusion

Even though it may seem like we are weighing on the side of the rifles, we are not, we are simply pointing out the differences that makes firing from a pistol with accuracy more challenging. So, have all of these things in mind when you are trying to decide between getting a custom pistol or a rifle, and make sure to take enough time because after all this is an important decision and there is no place for rushing.
