This is fucking bullshit dude. I know this was my first time shooting, but this is just pathetic. It shouldn't be that fucking hard. You get your stance right, aim down the damn sights with a good grip and shoot.
So why the hell were my shots all over the place? The should have all been dead center.
I can shoot a flees dick at 100 with a rifle. I suck at hand guns.
Your technique is off. It's ok. we can be faggots together. And that is pretty bad tho, I'm a little better than that.
I scored a 38/40 on my rifle marksmanship test...and first time I shot my 45 it looked like that.
Ask a range office to observe you and see what he says. I was anticipating the kick. After he gave me some tips, some were derp-teir, I did shoot better.
to;dr - Ask someone to watch you.
You literally cannot know that unless someone loads the gun for you and you don't know if it has a round chambered or not when you squeeze the trigger. It's a subconscious reaction that happens so fast and during the same time as the muzzle flash and report that it's imperceptible.
Yes you were. ( this chart calls it anticipating recoil)
Dont get offended. Just go practice more.
Not just tossing bullets down range. Bit slowing down and being conscious about each shot.
You probably were, flinching is not always noticeable too the shooter. Sometimes my slide won't lock back and I'll catch myself flinching when pull the trigger on that empty chamber.
This seems like a cool and informative chart. Question -
My Px4 always seems to shoot a bit to the left, but my S&W 686 is always dead center. Am I mishandling the trigger just my Px4 or is the sight a bit off?
My first rifle was a mosin and for a while I only shot at bowling pins and steel plates at maybe 35 yards. I never realized how bad my flinching was until I couldn't hit shit with .223 at any real distances.
I've only been shooting pistol for two years. I shoot every few months, and sometimes every six months. Just read up, dry fire practice at home, and USE THE CHART.
>tightening grip while pulling trigger
This entire chart goes against all human instincts.
Not that anom but here are tips for flinching
1) load your mag with snap caps and live ammo using the ball and dummy drill
Basically you pull the trigger and don't know if its a did or live round, shows you you're flinching and you can focus on not doing it
2) buy a 22 and shoot 10,000 rounds
3) stop shooting
Dry firing didn't work for me at all. The ball and dummy drill helped alot, when you pull the trigger make sure its a suprise
save up for a Ruger SR9E (E = economy)
They're like $350
It's a full size handgun. I'm not saying buy one right now, I know you're young and in school, spending hundreds on who-knows-what is too scary to just go do. But there are plenty of full sized, great handguns under $500 and the Ruger SR9E is one of them. Google it later
Apply to much preassure just before the shot with your thumb to the gun frame.
It means you have your grip. It is fine. But as your squeezing the trigger you tighten your grip up at the last second.
Your pistol grip ahould be ballanced. To pushing not pulling not choking the gun.
Police trade is best way. Buying a glock/sig that was carried a lot but not shot much. One i picked up had holster wear, light scratches to grip, working night sights, and what looked like chewing tobacco in most of the crevices. Barrel and slide show less than 1k rounds through it so despite looking like a beater its actually lightly used. Great deals available on police guns if you have access locally or willing to order online sight unseen
