    DO you know an experienced shooter that can help you? Also you could ask one of the guys at the range to take a look. Another thing is the sights could be slighly off. It is more likely its the grip you take or way you squeeze the trigger.

    He's made arrangements to get together with someone who should be able to help a little.

    There are plenty of errors/omissions on that chart.

    I was lucky enough to get several offers of help, and have plans to meet up with someone next weekend. I have gotten a whole lot better since I first made the post. One of the things I was doing was shooting one time, then wanting to look at the target to see where I hit and completely re-doing my grip and stance every shot. That was pretty stupid. I’ve learned to shoot, release trigger just until it resets while getting back on target, then shooting again.

    I am not saying those charts are the be all end all. They do give the OP a reference point to start examining his shooting technique

    1. You are standing wrong

    2. You are holding the gun wrong

    3. You are flinching like crazy

    4. You probably dont really understand how the sights work.

    If I were you, I would watch jerry mickulek videos on how to shoot a pistol. He is the best in the biz and does a great job of explaining how to properly support a pistol.

    Another issue I’m having is my vision! I don’t wear glasses, although I do have some cheap readers that I use occasionally. When I am looking through the sights with my left eye closed, it is extremely blurry. Not sure if I should just go get my vision checked, I’m 47 so I’m guessing it’s starting to go south. Or maybe try to use the readers when I am shooting.

    I bought shooting glasses with magnified lenses.
    Now my sights are clear.
