    Hadn't shot since about April. The closest range to me caught fire a while back, so now the closest one is about a 20 mile drive. So I went out there yesterday and had a good time. I started off my first magazine by freaking jerking the trigger hence some of the off center shot placement. Then I met a guy there that was looking for brass to reload and he showed me how to hold my gun a little differently and it made a world of change. He does tactical shooting out there and told me that most people (including me) hold their gun strong with their right hand and not so much with the left, which actually contributes to the jerking motion when shooting. He told me to use my right hand about 30% strength to hold the grip and use my left hand about 70%. This way my trigger finger is the only thing that has to move on my right hand, which will reduce my jerking a little bit, and make my shots better.

    He had me practice a few shots about 3 inches to the right of the head so I would know that I'm actually shooting at what I'm aiming at. After that I was really impressed with my improvement. So I'm going to try and go back again and learn the new grip a little better.

    Well here are the results........don't be too harsh I've only owned the gun since april, and it's my first handgun.

    no shit....It was rough yesterday, but much worse today.

    I used to go to Sportsmans Outlet off of 1960, but since that bitch burned up it's either the one off 1314 or one off 59 going towards downtown. This one, oddly enough is closer.

    I used to shoot there twice a week... I haven't been in a while because they got more expensive, and more restrictive on non-tactical tuesday shooting...

    ?? There's atleast 4 in or around the city, Top Gun, one in Friendswood, one on 2100, and one on 1960 somewhere....

    Ok, can't count those last 3 as in the city :mamoru:

    What part of town are YOU in?

    lol. I live in kingwood. Sportsmans outlet off of 1960 at 59 burned down a while back. Humble PD set off flash bangs inside :o
    Bitch went up like a dry christmas tree.

    So the closest place to me is off of 1314. It's about 2 exits down 59, but about 10 or so miles down 1314. My dad went with me this time, just to hang out.

    Really wasn't planning on going. Just sort of happened.

    Brought the Savage Arms .22lr out there too. Kind of fucking sucked shooting at 50 yards without a scope :o

    managed to get one bulls eye though lol

    damn....I payed $20 for the glock and the .22lr
    Could have sat and shot all fucking day if I had the amo, and if I could stand the heat.

    THe pistol range wasn't covered, but the rifle range was.

    So how much boost is the SRT making? My Jetta makes 22PSI :mamoru::mamoru::mamoru: I wish it didn't, I wanted an all stock car when I bought it, the owner lied about the tuning.

    still stock pushing 12-14 psi.
    But I drive like a grandma so I can make my gas last a full week. Shit's getting kind of expensive driving 40+ miles a day.
    Don't even know wtf my BOV/Turbo sound like anymore :wtc:

    Trying to get transfered to a new location about 2 minutes away from my apartment and I can at least play with the car a little more.

    Needs a tranny fix too, so that's another reason I granny it. If I get on it hard the syncros go shitty and don't let me get into first get if I have to stop at a light :o
