    i shoot low and to the left, BADLY. on saturday at the range at my school, i was instructed to lean forward and point my rear foot forward when i shoot. i also found myself taking a little bit more time before each shot. it was the best i have ever done with a handgun, at 15 yards i made a big hole in the middle (an inch down and to the left of the bullseye actually :mamoru:) :eek3: im going to the range tomorrow to practice some more, but i am getting so excited! i cant wait to go and get better!

    now the low and to the left thing... am i still pulling the trigger wrong?

    You're anticipating the shot, I would suggest putting some rounds thru a 22. Focus on the target and don't worry about where your shot is going. Eventually they'll start just going where you're focused (in the center). You might find that after a few hundred rounds thru the 22 you'll be in the center but perhaps to the right of the CM, if that happens you're jerking the trigger.

    The first 3 sessions I had with my friend's glock, I was shooting lower right. My friend and I could not figure out what was wrong. My sighting was correct, my stance was fine, and my grip was good. Finally I found out what I was doing wrong. Instead of slowly squeezing the trigger halfway, then giving it the extra pull to fire, I was just pulling it all the way. This caused me to unknowingly shift the gun down and to the right. After I discovered my problem, I was able to hit the middle every time.

    Also, read this thread over at GlockTalk. It's 8 pages long now but it has a lot of good information for new (and not so new) shooters wanting to diagnose what they are doing to shoot badly.

    glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5876

    That one thread has helped a lot of people fix their shooting problems.
