Awesome dude, I went to the range and had a really tight grouping, but slightly left of center.

It wasn't until later I discovered I was placing the trigger in the crease of my index finger instead of just above the crease. I forgot what he told me the term was but I did have a nice grouping though, especially for a noobie.

****provided your pistol shoots a zero.
Left and down has a lot to do with you squeezing your entire hand instead of trigger finger at the second knuckle.

Hold your empty pistol after clearing it and slightly squeeze and notice which direction the muzzle moves.

My wife is left/lower left also. Nerves also has a lot to do with it.

What are you shooting? Revolver? Semi-auto ? Single or double action?

This may help with your trigger squeeze.

I've shot quite a few targets, but I have never noticed these until now:

A picture of your target Danno.
LMAO...Dirty Bird Targets.

Danno, I noticed that that you are shooting silhouettes in the horizontal position. Are you planning on shooting someone in their sleep?

After looking at your target, I sort of envisioned you as using the"Super-Modified Gangsta" grip.

Re: The Firing Pin (Gun thread)

For those who are looking for or not sure of what CLP (Cleaner, Lubricant, Protect-ant) to use, I am an avid Froglube user.. I love it because not only is it more of a wax than an oil and does not accumulate carbon or dust and dirt but it is also environmentally safe, biodegradable, and You could eat it... It is also not a solvent so it will not damage your finish on either the metal or wood.

For those new to ARs and are having trouble getting carbon off the BCG (Bolt carrier group) and dont want to sit and scrape.. A Dremel and a brass wheel world like a charm. ONLY brass, Not Steel.

Watch these videos and decide for your self:




If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
