How many in what size group?f9k9 wrote:... the concealed carry qual here is 30 rds at 7 yds, no time limit.
I will give that a try. I seem to try to focus back and forth. I'll try concentrating on the front sight.f9k9 wrote:...Squeeze the trigger keeping the front sight focused in and the rear sight and target fuzzy.
That is basically it in a nut shell, cliff notes or whatever. Not sniper stuff but, handgun basics. You will pass easier than you did your ham license.HenryJ wrote:........... I'll try concentrating on the front sight.
When time is available, focus on the front sight and if, your alignment is centered with the rear sight and the target is fuzzy. u be at where you need to be! Combine that with the gun startling you when the thing goes bang................. suicidal ducks are not in the equation.HenryJ wrote:...............I'll try concentrating on the front sight.
It has everything affecting the equation, except the grouping left, Brule. If, the group is consistently left then you are "anticipating" what you think is a perfect shot, telling yourself "now" and yanking it off. If, you are not doing that then you need to use KY windage and aim right of the "zone"HenryJ wrote:How much affect do you think bad ammo is having on the equation?..........................
IIRC this gun has always grouped left a little. Easily corrected by squeezing the right two dots slightly. I actually think that I may have been holding left a little. The shots were in a horizontal group more than a circle, so that would indicate more what you are saying , a "left pull" on my part. It may be just the way my eyes work too. I tend to shoot eyes open and maybe the off eye is doing more than I think?f9k9 wrote:If, the group is consistently left then you are "anticipating" what you think is a perfect shot, telling yourself "now" and yanking it off.

You are aware that there is a problem and if, you are not forcing the shot then aiming right will assist you without sight adjustment.
Is there anything normal about you Brian?04crewvt wrote:I gave up on shooting with both eyes open it just messes with my aim. I am left handed but right eye dominant.
from another article wrote:# Improve your stance by closing your eyes! That's right, while pointing downrange, close your eyes and take what you feel to be the ideal, comfortable stance. Now open your eyes-- naturally you will be aiming off target. Instead of moving your arm and shoulder to aim at the target, MOVE ONLY YOUR FEET. You have just gotten into a stance for your natural point of aim-- the most comfortable for your body.
from another article wrote:Controlling your breathing is also critical to accurate shooting. Start taking deep breaths before you get into your shooting stance. When you steady your breathing, you will want to fire at the end of your exhale. When you breath your chest expands which moves your arms, causing t he gun to rise and fall, so you want to make sure that when firing, your chest isn't moving.
Make sure that you don't hold your breath.
Military "usually" goes with the full metal jacket or "ball" ammo as required by the Geneva convention. Law enforcement usually goes with a variant of the hp round. There has been some work done and experimentation with a FM round and it is beginning to look promising.MinnesotaMudder wrote:Does anyone know what the the police use for bullets, hollow point or full metal jacket.
Thank you very much. That makes it very clear for me. I had an old .22 Ruger that shot the same. I drifted the rear sight and it was dead on for me.f9k9 wrote:... your rear site is in a dovetail, correct? Grab a box of surplus 9mm ammo and just shoot at the same location from a rest. Try it with 3 rds for each string of fire. Here is the part that I know will put a sparkle in those eyes of yours. If, the group is consistently left, take a brass punch and a hammer and make a very slight movement of the rear site to the right. You always move the rear sight where you want the round to go.
Yep and Border Man too! I remember the big switch many years ago. It wasn't politically correct to shoot black targets so we started shooting blue and green ones. Kinda like shooting at cops and Martians.04crewvt wrote:That is the same target we qualify with BTW.
Brule I tested one for the agency. It is pretty secure and simple. It will hold when going through brush and such. The BlackHawk is much more secure but, takes a little muscle memory built up. A couple of weeks practicing hitting the release with an unloaded firearm for 5 or 10 min a day will make it feel natural. You'll feel goofy as heck if, you are caught practicing but, it is the way to learn to do it without thinking about it.HenryJ wrote:.........If the KISS principal applies, then the Fobus looks pretty simple.
Yep the paddle goes inside the pants. It will make sense once it arrives.HenryJ wrote:......So the paddle slips inside the trousers?.................
