As to sight pictures, I've always preferred the six o'clock hold as opposed to the center hold. The center hold usually obscures too much of my target, and does not present as clear view of my sights. For small game, I put the whole head on top of my front blade.

25 yards, I can't even see the target that far away

All kidding aside, as a new shooting I am concentrating on 7 yard and 10 yards. Don't see a point at spraying stuff all over the place until I can place them at shorter distances. The attached was at 10 yards with my Glock G22 .40 cal, still trying to overcome the low and left shots every once in a while.

Try shooting at a smaller target, say a 3" Birchwood Casey stick-on bullseye. The smaller your target, the more you'll concentrate.

Thanks Bob. You can't really see it in this iPhone picture, but to the left and the right of the head are a pair of 3" or 4" targets.

Oh, that is my mistake - I have not been throwing the bullets. I'll try this next time

What he said is what I know as the correct way for semi autos, but I always say to hold it the way that is most comfortable, as long as its safe.
