    We bought a membership at a local range yesterday morning & then went back later to take advantage of the deal.
    Looking for advise here ...My Bride was having some problems with her shot placement. everything was right of center. I am sure it has to do with mechanics but I am not sure what the correction is . she says her sight picture is on center. any thoughts/suggestions? thanks in advance

    That is odd that she would be right of center. Is she a left-handed shooter? It could be grip pressure. Tell her to try and squeeze the grip with just the two middle fingers of the grip hand.

    No problem bud. Yeah when I started shooting hand guns I couldn't believe how the slightest changes can effect your shot so drastically

    Well, I was gonna say it sounds like she is resting her trigger finger too far over the trigger itself causing her to pull the shot to the right. The chart posted earlier would seem to agree with that theory. To correct, she needs to try and find a comfortable position for her finger finger to rest on the trigger, and allow a smooth trigger pull straight back. Also, watch her when she fires, and see if she closes her eyes or flinches when the round goes off. Could be a sign that she is anticipating the shot.
