You're doing good for a new shooter.

Just 3 small things:

Grip the pistol a little higher. The web between your index finger and thumb needs to higher, get it closer to the Beaver tail.

Squeeze the trigger. It looks like you were jerking the shots low.

It also looks like you are anticipating recoil. Don't do that, there is nothing you can do to keep the gun recoiling. Just get used to the way it feels.

Very good for a new shooter!! Glad to see you out on the range.

In addition to what Kryptar19 said, the big thing for me is trigger control and proper grip. I can't see your trigger control because of the angle. No problem. Just make sure you do a slow, steady squeeze, keep the trigger pulled to the rear until the recoil has subsided, then slowly let it out until you get to the "reset." The reset is the point in which the pistol is cocked again and can fire. You can experiment with this safely in your house. Just point the pistol in a safe direction, triple check to make sure its not loaded and neither is the magazine, and slowly press the trigger to the rear. Keep it held back, and rack the slide to re-engage the striker mechanism, then let out the trigger until its to the point where you can refire. It might take some experimentation to figure it out exactly.

Again, check, double check, and triple check the firearm and magazine to make sure its unloaded before doing this.

Here's a couple good videos you can watch to get an idea. The first one is a good drill to do to work on accuracy. The second and third ones are grip specific. The third is pretty long but he's a good guy and entertaining at times. The fourth video covers grip, sight picture, and trigger control.

You're doing well. Good luck and keep up the practice.

Omg your so good! Yes i was doing all of that lol! I couldnt hit the small target at all and it was because i was anticipating recoil and flinched when i pull the trigger making a low shot. So we went and got the man body target. Thanks for the pointers!!!!

I would add a note about posture. It looks like you are standing with your shoulders back farther than your hips, almost to the point of leaning back. That increases the effects of recoil.

Watch this video of Julie Golob, and notice how her shoulders are forward of her hips. Also check out her foot placement, especially when she isn't leaning around obstacles.

As stated earlier, you are doing quite well as a new shooter, and you're getting a lot of advice because you asked for it. :D

Yes, take a bit more forward aggressive stance "Think Boxer" it will feel more comfortable and sturdier to you. You will also bring your head down a bit more on line with the natural sight plain.

Keep it up and remember pass it on to other new shooters....

To add.. Don't struggle to be fast, just be smooth and fluid. Speed will develop rapidly with fluidity.
