    Get some snap caps and mix them randomly in your magazines. You'll be able to see what you're really doing after the gun fires.

    Groups should be tighter at 7 yards too... I wouldn't call that grouping up and the left really. They're kind of all over.

    I do it a few times at least every range visit especially if I've been shooting the .22lr and switch up to something bigger. And I've been mixing just one randomly in one of my three magazines for my Glock 34. Rare enough that I have no clue when it's coming.

    Looks like a bullet but doesn't fire. Suppose to be for dry firing so you don't damage your firing pin. Pretty much all gun stores I've been to sell them.

    little plastic thing shaped like a bullet that has a primer so it's safe to dry fire w/ it.

    Dryfire practive at home would probably help.

    As to follow thru, for every slow fired shot you should have 2 sight pictures. Align sights, decide to shoot, pull trigger, BANG, hold trigger all the way back, allow the recoil to go, then reaquire a sight picture before you reset the trigger forward. Then if you're firing slow pairs/multiples, use that 2nd sight picture as the first to fire the next round.

    Some also call this a trigger reset drill, only reset the trigger once you've gone thru recoil and have reaquired a sight picture. This will help a lot, it really helps me when I let my groups scatter.

    they're meant to be a prank, kind of the like the ol' exploding golf ball gag you play on your buddies.
