Accuracy tips???
 
I have great accuracy with my Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22. However, my aim sucks with my Ruger SR22 and with My husband's 9 mm and .40. Any tips to improve accuracy.....I shoot well with the Smith & Wesson because I can hold it close to my face but with a regular handgun I just am not making the correct adjustments.

squeeze the trigger smoothly ,not pull , concentrate on the object your shooting , practice dry firing it and see if your flinching , Practice, practice, practice thats the only way to get more proficient with it

My problem is that I anticipate the recoil and I definitely pull instead of squeeze. It frustrates me though that even withvmy SR22 I do the same thing even though there isn't really any recoil. I am going to keep practicing.

Yep, practice. Dry fire is about the best. With though dry firing, the shoot truly will surprise the hell out of you. Stick to the fundamentals.

Remember this, "Let the gun fire, don't make it fire." If every time the trigger breaks it's a surprise, there will never be a flinch.

Zombiegirl do yourself a favor and get some of these;

As you can see I use mine frequently. Actually I have made a game of chambering one and while watching evening TV I practice my trigger break and sight picture by shooting actors on screen. The more the show sucks, the more practice I get in. It's great therapy!

My husband actually bought some of these a while back for himself. I will have to get some too. I love going to the range but would love to be accurate with all of our guns. Thanks!

I just ordered a set in 9 & 45. Plastic ones didn't work well...

a thought.

Instead of snap caps, my frugal @$$ uses spent cases for dry fire practice.

Dry fire practice makes a WORLD of difference. At least it did for me.

Just sight your target...something stationary across the room, SQUEEZE the trigger, make sure you still have the same sight picture...repeat.

Trying to teach firearms technique over the web is like trying to learn how to fly via email.

Best advise is find a good instructor in your area.

Any tips will help, since everybody probably has gone through the same situations when first shooting. She does flinch when shooting. I did when I first started shooting. It seems that I've worked through it some how. Here and there I have a tendency to still have it!
