    This is my best so far, a 97 if I scored it right. Shot it with a g45 MOS and a holosun 507. Definitely can’t do this with irons

    Fooled around at 50 yards with the retro Glock. Plastic sights are surprisingly effective.

    Had one fmj and 9 semi wadcutters loaded in the 1911 mags. Peeked through the spotting scope and thought I threw one clean off the B6.

    Did the 25-yard freestyle. Bone stock (internally) P320-M17 with a Romeo1 Pro and a suppressor height front sight. Shot a bit faster than bullseye RF pace.

    97-1X. Not cherry-picked. After shooting irons and SHO exclusively for the past two months, shooting freestyle with a dot was sort of shooting on autopilot.

    Going SHO really opened things up—same pace, but a 6-lb trigger with lots of overtravel isn’t really conducive to bullseye. Consistently in the high-80s and low 90s. Interested in seeing how the service pistol teams adjust to striker triggers.

    Whenever you're sad, just remember: every day is one day closer to your next plate of nachos.

    This was going to be a 5 shot group at the end of the range visit yesterday. My third shot was low about 3 inches, so I loaded one more and got it on the paper. Gold Dot 124 +P and the G19.5 has an Apex trigger, connector and Talon grips that I am trying out.

    I tend to do much better with irons for strict accuracy shooting, but I am starting to play around with a dot. My first hundo on a B8 target was using iron sights. My problem is that all of the years I spent focusing on front and rear sight means I focus on the screen of the RDS and that really messes up the dot.

    Otherwise, I've put a metric ton of .22lr downrange through a Ruger MkIV, which helps me with trigger control and sight picture.
    The magic works on all the 92's. My LTT is my favorite, but the old M9 billed out with an otherwise similar setup is no slouch.

    I need to hit the range more. Santa brought me 600 more B8's for Christmas this year, so I have no excuses.

    Yeesh, some browsing through this topic with some pretty damn good shooting and here I come with my suckyness.

    So I've been trying some runs at No Fail and have failed pretty horrifically. Dead buses full of nuns everywhere. Here's my most recent attempt with my carry gun (G45 MOS w/Holosun 507C):




    Needless to say that's pretty bad, so I decided to just do some untimed shooting at 25 yards. Haven't worked on much of anything at 25 yards, and of course it shows.




    Just for grins and giggles I borrowed a Walther PDP with RM01 and managed to put this together with 10 rounds.


    I caught myself anticipating recoil on a few occasions and worked to try and correct it by intermittent dry-fire between shots. Unfortunately dry-fire itself doesn't seem to help much because my brain knows the gun isn't about to make the loud noise and as such doesn't attempt to pre-emptively compensate for recoil. Perhaps some ball and dummy or even skip loading, which I learned about from JLW's episode about Larry Mudgett, would be more beneficial. I certainly don't want to "waste" what ammo I have just chasing the 25 yard shooting and not working out the kinks in my system.

    It comes through practice, for sure.

    I had targets that looked worse than yours when I started. Today, I just shot the best 10 shot group I've ever shot. 100-8x using a Springfield 1911 and some 200gr SWC handloads

    It looks like I just have more work to do. I can't figure out if my Sigs are just inaccurate or if it is me. After a disappointing range session today with the Carry Legion, I pulled out the Walther Q5 and shot a 98. So either my Sigs are just crap, or something about me and them don't get along.

    I have a warm up drill I do with my pistols. Draw and fire 1 round to the head area X 2 at 7,10,15,20,25 yards. I don't have a shot timer so I have no time standard [gotta get one]. Any dropped shot/s require a redo until all are accounted for.

    Yesterday I was sighting in my iron sights carbine at my favorite 36yrd distance. Once confirmed I broke out two pistols. This distance revealed what I need to do regarding elevation hold of the front sight and... one of them is slightly off on windage.
