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.
