Aide, that wheelgun is soooo sweet! Makes me want to go find one today, I've been itching for a .45acp revolver for some time!

In a recet T&E of ArmscorUSA 230 grain FMJ ammo, I fired five rounds at 25 yards from my nickel Rock Island, shooting over my range bag.



Then just for grins, I fired five more right on top of them at the same distance from the bullseye stance.



Not National Match material I know, but I wasn't unhappy about it either.

This is a five shot group at 8 yards with a brand new Rock Island Compact. I took my time with each shot but it goes to show the accuracy is in the hands of the beholder most of the time

These are the last few mags of my wife's first attempt at shooting (as in ever with any gun) from about 6 yards. It was a Hi Point C9 and I had a grand total of 50 rounds because I had no idea if she would love it or hate it. The big ones are the few I put into it with my Regent.

She bought the C9 the next day and applied for her permit today. I think we got a live one boys!!

New shooter RIA 1911 9mm 25ft

Both targets were at 25ft. Both were at an indoor range but the yellow target was about two weeks after I first really started shooting and the zombie was about 2 months in.

1st time at the range!

Took my new Kimber Pro Crimson Carry II to the range today for the 1st time. 30 years ago I as an MP on the pistol competition team. Haven't fired a weapon in over a decade.

I started shooting at 7PM after a full day at the office (yeah, I don't exactly live a hard life at 53 years old...) and shot for two hours. I was truly tired in a good way by the time I was ready to call it a night...

Indoor range, fair to somewhat dim lighting...

I used Federal American Eagle 230gr ball ammo and did NOT use the crimson laser. That sucker's for real world shooting, not practice and skill building!






The next two photos are of my first shots of the night. Nervous, not sure how my Kimber would do, and not yet in habitual breathing/stance/trigger squeeze discipline... (that's all coming slowly)



And of course, the head shots from that same initial try.



By the time I two hours was approaching, and I'd drank most of my water (thank God I remembered to bring water!), I was determined to get into the zone of breathing and squeezing that trigger, at 10 yards...



Overall it was a mixed bag, but considering I hadn't even HELD a weapon in so long, let alone fired one regularly, I'm pretty happy about the outcome!

Both groups were shot off hand. Top target is 15 rounds though a Glock 19, bottom is 10 rounds through a Kimber Conversion on a Sig Sauer 1911.

Springfield Loaded Target at 7 or so yards, was shooting Tulammo so not the most accurate. I shot out the center of the shoot-n-c target with Federal HydraShock 165gr

Bluesdog, don't beat yourself up, it doesn't happen over night for any of us. One thing I would suggest is use a target with a more defined aiming point and shoot close enough that you tear it up. Then gradually move it further out until you can't tear the center out. This distance is where you need to start focusing your practice using the fundamentals. There is not secret, sight alignment and trigger press/squeeze/pull, whatever you want to call it.

No shame is shooting close.

These are just my tips that I use at the range with new shooters or other officers that I'm trying to help qualify. Keep it up!

Here is a fourteen round group from the new Noveske.

This was at 104 yards (by measuring wheel in tall grass). So maybe +/- 3 or 4 yards. This was before I got some better glass on it.

I've been shooting my entire life, just backyard shooting mostly.

Here is my best group to date, off sandbag front and beanbag rear.


Shot with this rifle set-up as it was issued.


I don't shoot groups in field positions; but here is a one shot hit on a 1.5 inch target, off a log, at 350 yards.
Howa 30-06 at 350 Yards, Tiny Target


Here is a derringer at 50 yards.
Derringer 50 Yards, 6 of 6

I think that'll do.

My new p2 tactical at 50yrs on a sandrest. I wanted the tactical package without the finish and sights. ..I like the original baer finish and the target sights work best for me.

Pulled out two targets from several years back. Both at 50 yards. The Anaconda group I shot using a Pistol Perch. The Redhawk was shot off bags. I grayed out the charge of the powder. It was on the edge.
