I'm not a good shot with a pistol. (Really bad hand/eye coordination.) This is late in the game to help you, but when I qualified, everybody told me to use a full size 9 mm. A friend loaned a Springfield XD to me and I qualified on the first two targets. Really surprised myself.

Good luck.

Thanks for the comment. I might consider a larger weapon if I didn't have only two days left to practice with it.

But I still want to qualify with the same weapon I will carry. That's probably being overly stubborn which I freely admit.

I think that it's trigger finger placement. I had a hard time with my Grandma's 709 Slim during dry fire, until I figured out that my massive hands lent to a different shooting dynamic with the tiny grip and short trigger reach. I have to put the trigger onto the second phalange of my index finger in order for the trigger to break without screwing up the sight picture. Bear posted that one picture, and it's helpful to know where the errors come from. Just practice dry fire!

I bought the same target style and then printed the shooting test guidelines and we followed them at the range. It was a big help, giving us a good idea of how much time we had to shoot each peice and no suprises on class day.

I did much better today. I was more relaxed for whatever reason. And slowed down.

This is my best 10 rounds at 7 yards.

Even my 15 yard hits, although more widely scattered, were all on paper this time so that's also improving. I'll shoot a few more tomorrow as a final warm up for Saturday.

There are varying opinions about this subject floating around. Some say no way no how under any circumstances; others say it's up to each instructor.

I can't seem to find a consensus.

I use Firefox. There are 2 flags [american/great britain and german] in the top right hand corner of the website itself. Mine opens in german by default and I have to switch it to english.
