Now is it good that I'm at least hitting the paper....granted there wasn't a decent grouping or should there be somewhat of a group? I'm shooting an XD9SC.
The idea of defense is to hit the target, whether it be a bg or not. You have succeeded. Period. No argument there.
Your concern however should be alarming if you can't hit mass center at 25 yards.
