Thread: Help Me Become A Better Pistol Shooter

  1. #11
    "I usually shoot my Glock 17 and I might start out strong, landing hits in a 2.5x2.5" post-it note at 7-10 yards but after awhile, shots start going low and left."

    This tells me that you are developing a "flinch". Stop shooting while you are doing good, take a break, come back to it later. I also notice this if my time/rounds shot becomes too long. The low/left also indicates "flinch" or anticipating the shot.

    post a pic of your firing grip on the gun. Could be the problem.

    Try using earplugs and muffs. Only load 3 rounds in the magazine will make you slow down your shooting tempo.

    I've taken videos of my shooting when I was having issues.

    What ear pro? just kidding; Howard Leight Impact Sport muffs.

    What's funny about my anticipation problem is I never had that issue with my harder recoiling Glock 21.

    Thank you. I'm always looking for an excuse to take the 686

    The American Rifleman just posted a good article on Julie Golob's pistol gripping techniques. Getting complete control over the pistol is the jist of her technique.

    snapcaps... Bonus with a laser.

    When you hit the non round and watch the laser jumping all over the place, it gives you some immediate feedback and something to work on
