Good solid pattern. How far you shooting from?

You gotta sow some more pics of the gun man!!

Looks like good shooting to me. It may take some time to break the gun in if it's pretty tight.

:cool:

Bad camera...bad camera...

Alright, you got it to start working finally.

Exactly my 1911 at this moment. The trigger is a bit heavy, but it works great for me. I love the heavy steel of the Loaded. And it doesn't have a finish that is so perfect and shiny that I am scared of handling it (like some of the stainless steel Kimbers).

Were you trying to hide the target behind the front sight? I think the aiming point is ABOVE the front sight on this handgun. Maybe that was bringing the point of impact a little high.

i did some dry fire practice at the range with no rounds and i did notice i flinch ever so slightly upwards before i pull the trigger...
if i fixed it it would hit center but as soon as i forgot it would come back
thought i got rid of that ole habit but it keeps coming back just need to practice more consistantly
:mad:

Junho - Your groups are fine, bordering on excellent for your first time with a new weapon. Well done. ;)

It's going to take some practice to get used to shooting with that size weapon again, but nothing in your targets leads me to believe you have a "problem". The groups are tight and they are slightly off center. Once you have a tight grouping, it's much easier to move that grouping around.

If you were all over the board and had shots scattered everywhere, I would be concerned, but that is not the case.

On the FTE - it might be that the mag gave you a problem, it might be that you need a little time running some ammo through the weapon for a "break in" or it might have been that you just limp wristed the last shot. Did it happen with every set, or just on your last set of seven, or what?

All in all, there is nothing there that I see that I would be worried about. A little more practice and you will be shooting dimes. :cool:

The sight pic on my xd40 is above the front sight as well so I aim high too. Have to work on that. Good group you have there.
