My question is what am I doing to cause my shots to go low left? Around 7:30 of my POA.
I am the only gun owner in my family and I have never had proper instruction.
Thanks for any advice.
(This is assuming my gun is fine. I was always told its not the arrow. It's the Indian.)
Dude! 350 rds in 30 minutes? Holy crap!
1. Slow Down! It's not a game to see how fast you can burn through ammo. It will get really expensive and you will still be missing a lot. Another option: join the military and see about being a machine gunner.
2. Slow down. Concentrate on squeezing the trigger.
3. Slow down. Focus on the front sight. Ensure proper sight picture. Proceed to step number 2.
Note: If the term "proper sight picture" is meaningless to you, seek out instruction.
4. Concentrate on shooting well. Fast will follow on it's own, eventually. "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast."
5. Consider seeking out a NRA Basic pistol class. http://www.nrainstructors.org/searchcourse.aspx

I was wondering the same thing.
