Practice, practice, practice.

Most gun ranges have a coach available somewhere.

Remember also that the main purpose of a semi-auto handgun is to defend you at close range. Close range here having the meaning of anywhere between 1 to 10 yards away. About any shot to the body will do the job, because they all hurt. You don't need to hit a fly every time.

If you are confident with the gun, and it feels good in your hands, and it does what you want, then it is a good gun, for you.

I put 100 rounds through it so far. Its not a new gun I don't know how old it is or anything. I don't know if pmc ammo is any good but that's what I used.

Yea I was thinking about the laser bullets you can put in the chamber. You know just to try and relax and quit shaking or moving.

I was surprised how light the recoil was with the .45 but it practically blew my ears out
