Nice. You can't go wrong with a Commander. Shot mine this week, and had a great time. Enjoy.

What is it about pulling the shots to the left? I do this too.

I think pulling left is when you really yank the trigger in anticipation of the bang. Someone can correct me if I remember incorrectly. Smooth trigger pull should fix it. I think loading a random snap cap or two in your magazines helps too.

Tightening the fingers seems about right for me.

Yeah, it's funny. I warmed up with my PPK 380 the other day. Shot pretty good, but nothing exceptional. Then I shot my 45 Colt Commander. Started out all over the place. Then got scattered too much. Slowed down and got really good for a bit. Then went all over again. Then practiced 2 shots to center mass and one in the head. I was excellent at that. I am just so inconsistent. A lot of it is speed and shooting too fast. But I also have a tough time with self diagnosis.

A couple of things. The ones out of the shoot n c were the first mag. Getting use to the trigger and sights. After that it's a matter of a hereditary condition that causes my hands to shake. Better with long guns. On the other hand wouldn't want to be on the receiving end. ;-)

That is a good point. We think we shoot bad, but at reasonable distances the receiving end would kind of suck. My Dad is a bullseye competitor so i often judge myself on those standards. It's hard to hit bulls on a target all day long at 50' or 100' while shooting rapid fire for us humans. Well, for me at least.
