    Considering how knowledgeable most of you guys are, i assume most of you can shoot the lights out. What do your typical groupings look like? Say indoor range, 7 yards, slow fire....single hole/1" spread/more?

    Right now, if i FOCUS, i end up with about a 2.5" spread with eight rounds. I tend to get impatient though, and shoot a little quicker....usually end up with a 4" hole in the target with maybe 3 or 4 fliers after 100 rounds. Just trying what a good goal is while i practice.
     
  2. first time with my DW CCO. 50 rounds at 7 yards. A few fliers.

    Here is my best effort at 25 yards with a 2 handed grip-- with my S&W model 64.

    Six shots--2 on the X

    I am nowhere near the shot of the fine gents I shoot with (Quack & Knedrgr), but this is my best target so far...

    30 rounds @ 7 yards. Federal 9mm from a Kimber ProCarry2. First shot was high right...the rest a little better.

    I will take a camera and calipers to the range tomorrow to see what mine actually looks like. Ive been shooting my reloads lately (and i'm a rookie at it), so maybe i'll shoot some WWB just so its consistent. Thanks for posting your pics guys

    Honestly I could care less. I'm a sharpshooter level IDPA competitor who is usually in the hunt to win CDP and top 10 overall in our club matches. That's how I measure my skill level. A 4" group scores the same as an oblong hole, after that the only thing that matters is how quickly you solve the problem.

    I like that. And you are right, it doesnt even matter. I am assuming though, the good IDPA shooters could make a pretty tight group if they took their time.

    I am planning to start shooting IDPA after i get a couple months of more practice. I tried some rapid fire at the range today and managed to keep all the rounds in the "A" zone, guess thats all that matters in competition, or real life for that matter.

    I haven't shot my .45 slide in awhile since I'm waiting on a batch of Wilson followers, but I did shoot a couple hundred .22lr two days ago in a quick range trip between studying for tests. Sorry for not shooting the manly caliber.:crying:All shots two-handed standing.

    Lots of fliers, I'm still new to shooting so I tend to shoot just to shoot when I'm by myself. 7yards, 10 shots at each 2inch square. Started at the bottom and worked my way up. Winchester bulk
    [​IMG]

    20 rounds of Aguila Interceptor gave me my best 7yard groupings of the day. 2inch squares
    [​IMG]

    My 15 yard bullseye target, 10 shots of Winchester bulk
    [​IMG]

    I concentrated really hard on this one (didn't rush and worked for a steady trigger pull every time), last target of the day, and had compensated for shooting low and to the right. First shot was dead center. 25 yards with Federal bulk. 30 rounds on standard bullseye target. Best shooting I've done in awhile

    Well I am not a competition shooter and I also could honestly care less how tight my groups are. If I am under a high stress adrenaline infused SD situation and I should happen to fire my weapon, if I can keep my rounds to a 6" group in BG's chest, they will be effective and I may walk away with my life. :supergrin:

    My G27 will shoot a one shot group at 100yds. I can cover it with a nickel.

    :cool:

    I'm just hoping the patience and trigger work put into shooting a tight group will translate to "A" zone hits when I start shooting USPSA.

    Without a question, thats all you need in a self defense situation. Hell, i was probably good enough to do that after only a few weeks (maybe days) after i started shooting.

    The thing is, if i'm gonna make this my hobby, i wanna be able to show off a little:cool:

    If i bare down & focus i can keep em at about 2" at 7 yards. Though i generally practice more for defensive shooting on silhouettes.

    Dude, if you want to show off...you merely need the proper tools.

    Quack knows where you can find one...and Cerebrus knows where you can get pink grips for it. :whistling:

    Hey rookie, we know where you've been hiding out... loaders have spies everywhere. :supergrin:

    Before the advent of IPSC style shooting there were really only two pistol disciplines; NRA bullseye and PPC. Most older shooters typically started out with three gun NRA shooting, rimfire, .38 and .45, shot offhand at 25 and 50 yards. While certainly not as exciting as some of the more modern types of shooting and competition it provided for an excellent foundation in all forms of shooting sports.

    Very few really get into bullseye style shooting anymore but given the opportunity do not pass it up... although different than what you may be used to it is every bit as challenging.

    This is an example of one of my 'losing' targets shot at a NRA match. 25 yards offhand with a 6 inch model 19. (I used to shoot with some very, very good shots who made my groups look like shotgun patterns.)

    Now get back over to reloading and learn how to stuff that 1911 of yours. :whistling:

    I can't believe someone at Taurus saw this and said, "yeah, lets put it on the market!". This pistol would go good for someone who tries to dress REALLY fancy with the cheapest clothes they can find.
