    Ive been shooting for a few months now, primarily 9 and 40, I was able to tear holes at 5 yards within a few weeks, but anything at 10+ yards I cant get a tight grouping, its about 2" or so with a flyer now and then.

    Any tips? I dry fire at least 30 minutes a day, when range shooting, i try and pull the trigger as slow as possible...

    thanks

    .

    Start close and work your way out.

    Remember...

    Perfect stance, bring handgun to eye not head to gun, good grip (thumbs forward towards target), control breathing, slow squeezes for accuracy.

    Takes time, dont expect to do it overnight. Ive shot many thousands of rounds before perfecting a tight shot group, $$.

    I say get a coach or teacher to actually teach you, there's only so much that can be done over the internet. I don't think super slow trigger squeeze are necessarily a good thing personally. Watch the front sight continally keep it where you want, as you pull the trigger and don't blink.
