    I put 150 rounds through my brand new Glock17 today and did just alright. This was only my 2nd time shooting and improved a lot since the last time.

    7 yards is where our police force practices. Pretty good.

    For your 2nd time shooting that ain't half bad. Hold that target up to your chest. I'd say it would get the job done. The biggest thing to do is to make sure you grip the gun properly first and foremost. Then work on trigger control, making sure you aren't jerking the trigger to either side or anticipating the recoil. Practicing with snap caps or just dry firing could help with this. Just please make sure there is absolutely NO live ammunition around you when doing this. Sometimes you can load it up without even realizing it because it is habit.

    Went to the range yesterday and had a blast! I was kind of disappointed and hard on myself last time I went but I'm getting much better. Got my first bullseye and then a few more.

    Then I shot from 50ft and got 4/5, I didn't think I was going to hit at all.

    Finally got to the rangr with the new Doracoated G-21, and threw in some g-23 action. The devil Deer is the 21 and the Horrible Hawg is the 23, 7 yards-- By the way, the Duracaot made my grip ever so slightly more tacky, it really felt better and my accuracy was better! THANKS AGAIN NUKS!!! G 21.jpg
