Nice shooting. I'd say that you have that barrel broken in.

That's really amazing shooting at 20 yards! Was it offhand or on a rest?

Ok, I am tough on shooters so I will be tough on you.

Try tightening the group up and stop using a rest. You will not have a rest during confrontations in the field. Stop using 20 yards. Use 20 feet, freehanded and off handed. Then show us the grouping.

Sadly, most shootings are at less than 20 feet (about room size or car length) and with an avg of four shots fired with all missing.

You will never need to shoot at 60 feet in life's common situations. Not that is not fun to try and I have pushed the limits at times just to see if I could hit something at 50 yards. Yet every shooting I have worked or involved in has been at less than 20 feet and the same with others I know as well as the published stats on shootings.

what's wrong with finding out how accurate the pistol is to begin with, then working on his freehanded and off-handed shooting? i'm pretty sure his groups at 29-30 feet would have even been tighter. he was just wanting show off his nice group and get an attaboy and a pat on the back, not criticism. gee, you must be a real drag at parties!:rolleyes:
