This is gonna take a LOT of work.
Day 2 - slight improvement
Frustrating, but fun!
Stick with it. Practice is rarely pretty (if people showed all their practice targets, you'd feel better I promise)
On a good note, my experience tells me, from looking at the pics, that the gun "wants" to be a good shooter.
You can do as good with that pistol as your determination pushes you.
I'll trade you a Glock for it.
Do you have a good thumbs forward grip, with plenty of contact between the left grip and your left palm? Are you dry firing to learn where the trigger breaks? Are you taking up the slack, then getting a good sight picture while the trigger is at the break point?
Truth be told, that is actually pretty good for 25 yards.
Those targets represent the BG being hit COM, every time, in over 100 rounds at 25 yards. That's real world shooting. I don't CC every day to try and win bullseye target matches. Hits like that count when the chips are down.
Thanks, all good advice and, yes, to all of it.
Only my second day to shoot centerfire beyond self defense distances, and I agree the Commander will regularly shoot 2" groups at 25 yards.
Just had a BarSto match barrel fitted for it.
Shot my carry piece at 25 today just for fun. It made bigger holes.
Off a sandbag bench rest I would expect your groups to tighten up quite a bit, but offhand at 25 yards, those are very respectable hits.
Oh, yes, from a rest it's like cheating things tighten up so easily.
My Smith M41 at 50 yards from a rest is boring.
Are you shooting sights only, or are you using the laser as well?
Neither my wife nor I practice using the CT lasers, only with the sights.
What eventually happens is the laser follows our eyes rather than our eyes following the laser.
It's only for lowlight conditions anyway.
yes very good!
Have you ever seen a decent bullseye shooter?
Some of the guys I practice with shoot NRA bullseye competition and group, one-handed at 50 yds.
It's amazing how much of a difference the loss of 3/4ths of an inch of sight radius can make.
Here's an example of how it's supposed to be done.
25 yards, rapid fire
Definitely not by me
That is not bad at all for 25 yards with no rest. Keep on practicing the groups will tighten up.
not bad for 25 yards
25 yards is a long way for off hand shooting.
i start at 5 to 7 yds then gradually move back. easy to tell what you need to correct up close. also the need to get comfortable with the gun and trigger is not amplified by distance.
