I also took out my 3.8 XDM40 for some practice. I've never had a problem shooting a rifle, but with pistol shooting practice is needed. In the past, I kept anticipating the recoil, and needed work on the trigger squeeze and trigger follow through.

Weapon: 3.8 XDM 40
Ammo: Federal 180gr .40 S&W
Range: ~10 yards

1st XDM target

2nd XDM target

3rd XDM target

I'm getting better, but need more practice.
