Default Range 13 Oct 12

Me and dad went to the range again today..... I am gonna post my targets in order of first to last like last time.... The 3rd target I only used the 1911..... had some issues with my grip on that one. The 4th was a close up of a REALLLLLY lucky shot but I was still happy with it

Anticipating the break... same... too much trigger finger (?)... Looks like a good shot in there to me.

All three, in order.

Although, looking at your first two targets, I have to wonder what your sight picture looks like.

Are you holding the top of the front sight centered on the bull?

Which one of these does it look like?

Actually to be honest I was shooting both left and right handed on all targets so part of the reason they look crappy is because I was confirming which hand was dominant.... I am saddedn that my left hand is better than my right.... but my hands were shaken really bad today as well.. I was less than happy.

Not saying it was bad at all... it's good. Nice grouping, just a little high of center.

Sorry, I should have pointed out the good first!

hehe it might be ok... but like I said my hand started shaking very quickly... I probably got no more than 10 shots off before I couldnt sight down the sights with my right hand. a little hand shake I expected not shaking so back that I could barely hold the weapon....

Image 2 is correct btw

This is probably why your shot group is just high of center. Unless you have adjusted your sights.
