Default not impressed with my glock

Well its the first pistol I've owned its a g21 SF and I don't know if I just need to get used to it... But its not accurate at all. Alot of people say the 21 is really accurate but I couldn't hit a good size box that was about 25 feet in front of me. Id adjust my aim and the bullet would go a completely fifteenth way.

I'm not saying this to be mean...but your problem may lie in the very first sentence of your post...that's just my opinion.

get some dry caps(fake bullets you can use to practice with) and practice all the fundementals, sight picture, sight alignment, grip, good stance, trigger control... after some practice go to the range and try to do the same thing with live ammo.. always aim at the same place.. this will tell you if your sights are off. or if its shooter error. good luck

You should be able to find them at any gun shop.

Usually a gun is way more accurate than the shooter. Because a pistol is so much shorter than a rifle, it might be harder to get accuracy from the sights. It's just going to take a lot of practice............and that's part of the fun!!
