    Maybe just a little sight problem or too much finger? The group is fine just left. For me the second target isn't bad at 25 yds. Really, that to me is a long shot with a handgun. All in all, looks pretty tidy Mr. Bubba!! Certainly nothing getting out more often won't easily cure!

    I agree with Dutchs 25 yards takes a little practice... The first pic is nice grouping just need to go slightly right

    If that was a real person they would not be happy. I think it looks good.

    Not bad man, I'd say just a little bit more finger on the trigger. Also focus on the front sight if your not already doing so. You'd be surprised to see that what looks centered may actually be a little off when you have a crisp picture of that front site. When pressing the trigger imagine that you are pulling the front sight straight back along the top of your slide through the notch of your rear sight. So if your doing all of that already...more finger :)

    Looks good where it counts...at 7yrds. Remember the self defense rule of 21 feet. your grouping in that range is great. I saw the greatest improvement when I learned to stop fighting the recoil and control my breathing. Learn to accept the gun's movement when firing, and focus on the sight picture. Good luck!

    Good grouping there at 7 yards, just have to center the group on the target....are you a leftie or a rightie?

    *PS* I do mean GOOD grouping there....I have seen worse in the firearms classes I teach....

    Looking good!
    Definitely good grouping at 7 yds.

    25 yds for a pistol is pushing it, I wouldn't be too worried about that target on the left the target's in a world of hurt.
    I wouldn't worry too much about the one on the right either. Distance only magnifies little issues. 1 degree off at your hand, translates out to rather large distances at 25 yds.

    OK. So you know what that means, right?

    You are pushing the pistol to the left when you break the trigger. Too much finger, perhaps? Perhaps in combination with not controlling your breating?

    If you focus on perfecting all shots at a shorter range with a really tight group, focusing for a further distance becomes a lot easier due to muscle memory.

    At least, thats how it worked for me....

    WEll, then, if that's what you're going for then, keep perfecting the mechanics and the groupings will get tighter.

  17. Nice grouping, Bubba! if you aren't using too little finger on the trigger which would cause your shots to go left a little bit, try putting your support thumb on the frame just under the slide, near the slide takedown lever. The extra little bit of finger pressure on the left side of the frame should be enough to get you back on center target.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Noob question, what does it mean 'More or less finger on the trigger'?
    I just took my first hand gun training class (first time shooting) and I did the same type of grouping.
    Being a right hander, I got all 20 grouped to the left of center also. (actualy rather proud never having shot a semi auto)

    Thanks..

    Welcome Viper-snipe!! It is in reference to the amount of I guess you would say meat from the finger. Not enough would be just using the tippy and of your trigger finger and too much would be using down past the first knuckle on the trigger finger. Just right I believe is the fleshy part just behind the nail on you trigger finger with a smooth seamless pull, not a jerk or a yank so the trigger and the expulsion of the bullet happen in a one motion kind of way. Enjoy the forum.

    I'm a right hander and shoot a little left when I don't pull back a little with the left hand - that whole push-pull grip dynamic.
