Hey everyone,

Just purchased my 1st gun last weekend, a 4th generation Glock 17. Took it to the range same day and put a hundred rounds through the gun or so. This was my 2nd time shooting and here are a few photos.

7 yards out - my 1st few shots were low as I was getting used to the sights

21 yards out

Good shooting! Do you release trigger after each shot completely? If so, try to release the trigger slowly after the shot until you feel/hear a "click", then squeeze the trigger again. I believe that the trigger pull will feel lighter.

Yea right now I fully release the trigger between shots. Like I said it was only my 2nd time at the range so I try and take it slow, usually take about 10 seconds between shots to reset and get my sights set again. Obviously I hope to pick up speed as I get more used to the gun.

I had a buddy at the range with me who was telling me that my rounds @ 21yds being left was due to anticipation when squeezing the trigger so I am hoping to correct that as well with practice.

Thanks for the tip, I will try that out next time I go to the range.

You can practice it dry fire (unloaded). You have to rack the slide after you pull the trigger. I try to teach that the trigger pull and release should be the same amount of time. Releasing the trigger too quick will allow the gun to move off the point of aim. Again, dry fire, and try releasing the trigger both ways, slow and fast. Smooth is quick, fast is sloppy. Good luck.
