You're dropping the muzzle just a bit when you pull the trigger.
Don't lower your head to look at the sight, raise your arm up to eye level and squeeze the trigger directly towards to.
Your sights, trigger pull and arm should be as one unit in a straight line.
See how my first 5 or 6 shots are in the 8 ring? I was dropping the muzzle. The rest of the shots went were I wanted them.
That's 50 rounds of .45ACP from my 1911, 40 feet.
Ooooohhhg that’s dreamy.
You'll be shooting perfect rounds before you know it. Better learn how to reload shot shells, if you're going to be a life long fan. Also, dedicated trap guns can cost thousands, although you don't need that to start. I used to like to shoot trap, but lost interest in it as I got older, not sure why..
Enjoy, it's a great sport, and after the guns and ammo are put away for the evening, sitting back and knocking down some beers or shots with your friends, is great.
to me driving at a track day does that.
Same here when I'm on my motorcycle (no track days though)
Isn't it great to have these outlets
I haven't made it to black powder yet. The oldest is a S&W revolver from about 1910. Then a trench/riot shotgun from about 1920. Then three from WW2. Rabbit hole be damned
Growing up, I had a sweet 16ga for skeet. Used to shoot in an abandoned quarry.
You’d like my old .45 1911 with a stamping on the side from 1917. My grandad swiped it from the army back in the 1950’s.
It used to be track days and race days on the R1 for me. I do miss those days but after the broken leg I can't bend my knee like that anymore. Plus, I gave up the idea shortly after I got engaged to my wife. Started thinking about what would happen if I were to high-side at those speeds.
Iron sights. Night sights on the beretta, but I just used the outline of the sights as it was daylight. I haven’t shot it at 50 yards yet, as it is a defensive handgun, if the bad guy is farther than 21 feet in my state, it’s not considered defense, unless they are pointing a gun at you. Mind you I took these shots slowly.
Very fun !
@Believer7713 back when I was in special forces we didn’t use any optics on our pistols, but we could all put 3 in a head at 15M under night vision.
That being said I want an optic on my G19
My 30 meter group
THREE on the head.....that's good shooting, but you'd think the first two would do the job - ?
Although I haven't been in years, I love Skeet and trap shooting. When I worked at a chemical/plastics plant in Bishop, Texas in the early 90's, we had a full hydraulic skeet and trap range as well as pistol and rifle range. We had skeet and trap shoots every Wednesday after work and the cost was $0 to anyone who wanted to come. I was more fond of Skeet than trap (found skeet to be much easier). We even had an large swimming pool, 5000 sqft air conditioned club house and a 9 hole golf course at the plant - all for $7.50 a month is dues. I really miss those days, but I don't miss the South Texas weather.
Skeet is fun. I spend more time tending to the 40 (cutting brush, bush-hogging, chopping firewood, etc.) than playing on it though. Saves me money, I guess. If I was burning through ammo all the time, it would be cutting into my guitar collecting budget.
Back when I shot regularly. Sig P220 Supermatch, .45 ACP, 25 yards.
It’s all done in about 1.25seconds. So it’s about muscle memory.
For me shooting gets old fast. Driving to the range, the registration, the fees to target practice. I think if I'm going to spend time outdoors, might as well be fishing or hitting a golf ball if I have to pay to play. Otherwise I ride the bike around the county for exercise. I don't really have a nice indoor gun range either, those are dark & gloomy, noisy places. Would rather spend that time riding the bike to the parks, intracoastal & beaches. I'm fortunate to live in a county that has bike trails, both asphalt paved for road bicycles & wooded for MTB. The paved trails/paths, I can even grab the longboard and skateboard for that commuter distance.
