Really need practice !
#1
I have not shot in quite a while and just started shooting again. Low and left , really bad. I know it's me , just really rusty. Snap caps to improve trigger pull . What should these things cost. I'm seeing prices like $24 dollars . Is that about right ?

$24 seems a little high. MidwayUSA has them on sale right now for a package of 5 for $10.99. This price is good for a lot of calibers. Sounds like you're pulling your shots. A lot of dry firing and live ammo practice should correct this.

Oh man I need to get back to the range, myself. Its been a WHILE.

I like the Laserlyte snap cap a LOT. Expensive, but you can aim it somewhere in your house and it puts a red dot where you "hit".

Helped me a LOT when I was getting used to my LC9's trigger pull. And if you really want to splurge, you can get the target that goes with it (my hubby got it for me). But its not necessary.

You cqn also get snap caps from the NRA for around $10.

From what you said, it sounds to me like you are "slapping the trigger". When you shoot, just touch the trigger. Then slowly and steadioy bring your trigger finger back to your palm.

One drill I like is dry firing while balancing a quarter on the front sight. As you concentrate on keeping the quarter balanced, you will improve your shooting technique.[/align]

There is the possibility that a review of the "Magnificent Seven" will
help you to get back on track:
1. Stance
2. Grip
3. Sight Alignment
4. Sight Picture
5. Breath Control
6. Trigger Squeeze/Press
7. Follow Through
If your front sight will accomadate balancing a coin on it, Start with
a quarter and finish it with balancing a dime.

This might help you figure out what you're doing as well.

Most modern guns are safe to dry fire on an empty chamber. I dry fire my XDm all the time on an empty chamber.

Well , I bought the snap caps with the dime ! Practice , practice , practice.
Before the medical issuues started , I was a pretty fair shot and it seems that I am gripping pistol too tight just before it fires.
I will get it right , just a matter of time.

And thanks for the info , help is help ! Big Grin

PS: need a brave soul to pull the trigger on my double barrel 12 gauge pistol once I perfect it !.............Eeeek

gripping pistol too tight just before it fires, sounds like you're flinching in anticipation of the recoil.

Put some dummy rounds in a magazine and see what happens when you shoot. If the gun is jerking down to the left when you squeeze the trigger on a dummy round it's a flinch.

Don't force the gun to shoot by pressing quickly on the trigger. Be surprised when the gun goes off by slowly pressing the trigger to the rear.
