Sights different?
#1
So, this has been bothering me.

My first gun was my LC9 and I practiced a lot at the range and also with a laser snap cap at home. (Haven't so much lately). I find I can shoot decent with it...not a pro, but at short range I can pretty much hit the center of a target, or at least make a fairly tight cluster.

Then I pick up the SR22 and I *should* be able to shoot with it even better, right? Especially single action?! I CAN'T!!!! My hubby can nail the center of a target with the .22 and I consistently get clusters to the right bottom quadrant of the target. It doesn't matter if I try to pull the trigger slow and steady...try not to jerk or anticipate the shot.....no matter how hard I try to line up the sights...even tried to compensate for being low by adjusting my eyes on the sights differently and still....I keep hitting the same "off" cluster.

So...is it because I got so used to shooting my LC9 I can't get my brain to line up a different sight???? Because then if I pick up my LC9 again, I can shoot pretty well. And its a harder gun to shoot....especially with shot anticipation, extra long trigger pull, and recoil.

Its frustrating because the .22 is so fun to shoot, but I can never, never, never hit the darn center of the target with it like I can with the 9mm.

I'm pretty good with semi-autos, but I can't get a good grouping for crap with a revolver (including shooting single action). Technically I should be more accurate with a revovler since it has a fixed barrel, but I'm not. Personally, I don't like most of their sights (see picture below). I am okay with revolvers that use fixed "3 dot type" sights.

This could help out a bit.

I've seen that before, but it would make no sense that I would be making those types of mistakes with an easier gun to shoot....especially because my grouping is usually where it says "tightening grip while pulling trigger" which would be a much greater temptation on the 9mm than it is on the .22....the .22 has so little recoil, you don't need to anticipate the shot, thus you really don't need to tighten your grip.....???

Finger placement and a not straight pull back only thing that makes sense.

The triggers function differently and require slight adjustments to your technique to compensate. A Glock requires a different pull than a 1911 and the Beretta 92 requires adjustment from either of those. Take your time and do everything deliberately with the new gun. Go at it like you're just learning to shoot. If you still hit the same area you may need to adjust the sights a bit.

did you change the grip? might be just enough of a change to give you better support

I think the sights are fine, I've had two others shoot it and they can get the target dead-on center.

I didn't think about the grip. We put the fatter grip on it because my hubby prefers it, but maybe my grip is used to the thinner LC9 one and that affects my shooting. Maybe I'll try the narrower grip next time!

Our range membership just ran out though. Undecided

I seriously believe it's how much finger you have in there and exactly how you are drawing the finger back.

Try when you can make it to the range again, practice/perfect etc.
