When I pull the trigger I look to see how much the dot moves on the wall. The direction of movement helps me diagnose any potential grip or triggering issues similar to the miss chart below:

+1 Jpyle, That's handgun practice with really cheap ammo!

Thanks...dunno if such a thing would be available in gunshops here though.

E-bay is out cos you have to get a Prohibited Weapons import licence from the Federal Attorney-General to bring in anything even vaguely firearms-related...even a plastic holster or a scope

Wonder if you could strap a mini maglight onto it Hmm that sounds completely unsatisfying lol

Bloody hell, a rogue .22!

OK that's it - Just for good measure they'd better haul in every rabbit rifle in the country to be destroyed &/or melted down also...surely .22LR is just as bad, if not worse! You can never be too sure

A boresight would probably work just as well if it doesn't also require an import license. You are really just watching the dot's movement so as long as it aligns with the bore axis somehow it should work. Let me know if there is something you are interested in, as long as it's legal I can get it here and ship it to you.
