    Buy a nice suppressed .22 pistol. Practice your trigger control and develop muscle memory with it. Then move back to bigger guns.

    I shoot 300-400 rounds of .22 each week. Good practice and affordable.
    What? Did you just say if he can't afford gas then buy an electric vehicle?

    There are many reasons why your shot is off but it's hard to diagnose without seeing you shoot.

    The best thing to do is practice dry firing your gun. Place a coin on the front and try to keep it from bouncing off while concentrating on your sight picture.

    I had the same problem then I acquired a DA/SA pistol. I practiced DA dry fire for 2 weeks 30-45 min a day until the front sight didn’t move regularly. Next range trip I was way more consistent center mass.
    I still dryfire with it but 2x a week now.

    @pfflyer55 As the others said, it's probably anticipation, trigger slap.

    Do you know your eye dominance? More than a few folks are cross-eye dominate and that will play havoc with you - especially if you want to shoot skeet or trap...
    I’m right eye dominant but wear progressive no line bifocals and a terrible astigmatism. My left eye is permanently damaged and my pupil is permanently dilated from multiple surgeries and the use of steroid eye drops. I see multiple site pics (double vision) and have to pick the brightest one. Constantly moving my head to focus is just annoying.

    But all in all I’m not doing to bad for what I deal with daily. I tried shooting without my glasses and it’s really almost the same results.

    No worries just have to take the good with the bad and if you really think about it it’s a blessing that I still have my eyesight although only about 30% in my left eye. It’s not an excuse just a fact.

    I had similar issues with my shooting eye. I got Euvitis and Glaucoma in the same year and lost 50% of my eyesight in it. The steroid drops arent too good for your pressures.. Taking lots of combigan to decrease pressures.

    You might want to try getting a pair of shooting glasses, prescription. However, most people would think that solves it, but it doesnt bring back a damaged optic nerve.
