Default Beretta PX4 Storm, 25ft, 12"x18" splatters

This Saturday and Sunday I went to my favorite range in Charlotte, Firepower Inc. Courteous staff and excellent range with good ventilation. Saturday I put 100 rounds of Remington 9mm through the gun, and it did not agree with the Remington ammunition at all. Four smoke stacks resulting in four tap-rack-bangs. So far I have put around 600 rounds through this baby and this was the first time ever I had a failure. I chalked it up to the rounds.

Saturday, 2009-11-14:



34 rounds (2 clips) at 25 feet.

All over the target. Still low-right, indicating that I am gripping the gun too tight. Working on it, can't seem to get it right.

Sunday, 2009-11-15:



17 rounds (1 clip) at 25 feet.

Way, way better. Also low-right, but better than before. Apparently I have to cover the entire bulls-eye with my sighs, or I don't hit where I am aiming. What am I doing wrong?

Sunday I was shooting some no-name brand that I don't even remember, but at least they all cycled. I put 50 rounds through the gun, warming up on a B27Q-RED target.

Either way, those are some dead sunsuvbitches.

As for the aiming issue, am I doing it right? What do I need to think about when doing this? I keep getting low-right hits, and most of the time I have to cover the entire bulls-eye. Is that the way I am supposed to aim?

Thankful for any input from you masters!

What does "strong side left" mean? When shooting I aim with one eye open, my right. I know, I should do it with both, but my results doing that sucks ass.

As for aiming, I felt that I have to clarify. My left eye is a bit lazy, so when I try to aim with both eyes open my spatial perception is diminished. I have tried working on this, but it just doesn't turn out as good as when I close my left eye when shooting.
