    Ok, other than I suck. What advice can anyone give me. I am shooting a G23 with TFO sites. Is it just trigger pull, or am I doing something else wrong?
    Help please. Need to get the grouping better.

    It's OK--you got him. He's not moving any more :)

    Practice dry firing to get used to the trigger. Focus on the front sight, and make sure it doesn't move when you pull the trigger. The sight picture should be good all the way. When live firing, you can keep the trigger held back after you fire, and release it slowly until you hear a "click." At that point the trigger is reset, and you can fire again if your sight picture is good.

    Keep practicing with the trigger...

    Looking at your target, there are several things going on. Instead of listing them all here, I would like to offer some advice that would serve you better: Consider signing up for a class that. I am not saying it to be a jerk. I strongly believe that if people invest a firearm, they should consider investing in a class to improve their shooting skills. Also, practice, practice, practice.

    Be sure not to jerk the trigger to the rear, pull it very slow and smooth until it fires, it should be a surprise when it does fire so you arent anticipating it and flinching. While youre aiming go ahead and squeeze the trigger to that point where it gets tougher to pull and hold it there till youre ready to fire.

    Too little information to give proper advice. Strongly recommend you take an NRA Basic Pistol class. You'll improve dramatically.

    also try different weight ammo, perhaps your 23 is not stabilizing ammo well?

    That's a pretty good group, if it's a 100 yd. target. I missed the range, BTW.

    If you're right-handed, most people will say you are 'anticipating the shot', but on Glocks, I say you need more trigger finger to move shots to the right. I have cleared up many Glock shooters, and demonstrated to many Glock shooters, initially with a Blue Training gun that more finger will pull the gun back right. Less finger pushes it left. Try the trigger up to your distal joint and see if it helps.

    Wrench78:

    Buy the cheapest plastic training rounds you can find (there are solid orange plastic ones out there that I think are pretty inexpensive). Load up some magazines mixing a live round, or every two rounds of live ammo, with the plastic rounds.

    Go to the range. Insert a magazine with the dummy rounds and begin firing. Concentrate on your front sight and your trigger control. DO NOT LOOK AT THE TARGET!!

    Best target to use would be a solid blank sheet of large paper (butcher paper is great, as is a cut up and opened paper sack. Reverse a regular target if you have to in order to get a clean blank sheet.). Distance from the target should be around 15'~20'. This is important. This exercise is to teach you to focus on your front sight and control your trigger. Period.

    This is called a "ball and dummy" exercise. You will quickly see if you are jerking/yanking/slapping your trigger every time you come upon a plastic round.

    Trust me, this type of training works wonders.

    :thumbsup: Also what helped me out is hours dry firing with a penny or dime on the front sight.

    You'll catch yourself if your are moving the front sight when you might otherwise not notice doing it.
