    Hello! I'm new to the forum just got my first glock not to long ago. Pictures attached, its a Gen 2 glock 19 from 1988. Now I did have a question, i had to send the gun back into glock for some fixing up :crying:. I've been shooting pistols for a while but at ten yards I had a foot and half wide grouping :steamed:. This is probably just because the gun needs some fixing up right?

    Welcome!! You might just need to get a little more time with the gun & the groups will start to close up.

    I am certain between Glock servicing your pistol and some practice your groups will close up nicely.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I suggest getting some snap caps, making absoultly sure there are no live rounds in or near your gun, & practicing snapping on the snap caps. I also suggest that it's a safe area in case an accidental discharge did occur. It will give you practice in trigger control without any noise or recoil. I also suggest never shooting without hearing protection. Doing so will irreperably damage your hearing.

    Since you say you have been shooting pistols for some time, it could just be that the trigger on your Glock is quite a bit different from other guns. Dry firing with snap caps should help that a lot.

    Glocks are normally pretty accurate, I think some practice will tighten up your groups considerabley
    Good shooting.
