What does "trouble" mean?
1) can't hit the target? practice more
2) gun jamming? get it fixed
3) no ammo? join the club
4) too loud? wear hearing protection
5) can't see the target? get some glasses
6) range too cold? wear more clothes
7) range too hot? wear lighter clothes
8) gun too heavy? trade for a smaller gun
9) gun too light? trade for a heavier gun
10) too much recoil? get a smaller caliber
...that's my top ten fixes for your "trouble".

okieboy is 100% correct. You need an instructor. Go to a local range and ask if they have any shooting classes that you are interested in taking one, if they don't offer any I am sure they can point you in the right direction. Good luck and keep us posted.

Or, buy a ticket to Germany. All seriousness though, please explain what the problem is. Shooting low and to the left?

Before anyone can give you any meaningful advice, you need to tell us:

What type or types of handguns you are shooting.

What distance and type of target you are shooting at.

What the specific nature of the problem is.

If accuracy is the problem, then what sight picture are you using, and what stance you are using.

How much practice have you done? Tried shooting from a benchrest to see the accuracy of the pistol?

The more we know, the more we may be able to help.

With the title of the thread I regretfully expected another story of someone with a hole on their leg.
