Try using this chart. It's really good with helping diagnose shot placement issues. imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1389759392.822693.jpg

My sensei ( the guy who is watching me) thinks my problem is too little trigger finger, primarily, with some jerking and heeling thrown in to confuse the issue.

Friday will likely be my next time at the range with the gun. I plan to start shooting at 10ft until I get a good group, then move the target to 7yds, and finally 50 ft. I will load 1 round at a time, concentrate on fundamentals and see where I get.

First day at the range with my NIB Springfield 1911 Mil Spec. 250+ rounds and not a single failure to feed or fire. Used Winchester White Box and Blazer 230 gr. FMJ. Also about 3 mags of JHP. Even more impressive is what a crack shot this gun makes me. And it is all the gun. I was just along for the ride. This is just a magnificent handgun. If anyone is looking for their first 1911 and are on a budget look at the SA MIL SPEC first.

your sensei sounds like a smart guy...take his advice. Congrats on the new Springer, have always had one on the wish list.

Default Back at the range

Here are some photos from Friday at the range:
Here is a comfidence target at 10 feet:



Here is a 50 foot target:


I should say that I have been shooting bulseye for about a year with a S&W 22A-1. I eventually want to start shooting the 1911 for centerfire bullseye. Both targets were shot with my strong (right) hand only.

I have always heard that your strong hand grip should be moderate so as to not affect trigger pull. It appears that my idea of a moderate grip is a lot less than that of my sensei. His comment was that he holds the pistol firmly enough to "squeeze the oil out of it".

Wouldn't want you shooting at me. Looks like good shooting to me.

Thanks!

I want to use this pistol to shoot in bullseye centerfire competition. That said I still have a ways to go to be competitive at my club.
