Hey guys. I was just looking for some shooting advice for my girlfriend. To begin my story, the last gunshow we were at she tried out the feel of some firearms including Glocks, XD's and Taurus. Shortly after her hand rested on a Jericho 941 R Baby Eagle .40 S&W (steel frame). She loved the comfort and grip and the weight didn't bother her. She fell in love and I was out another $500. Which actually seems to be a very good deal. Anyways, she plans on using this gun as a ccw when she receives her license. So we went to the range and I gave her some basic advice on stance and grip and let her shoot. (She's a fairly new shooter.) The first few clips she was able to consistantly place her shots a little low and to the right, which makes me think she is just flinching upon trigger pull. However, the next few clips weren't so good. She barely hit the paper at only 7 yards. I was watching her control and it doesn't seem to be too bad, She's not wildly waving the pistol when she shoots and she seems to maintain decent control of the recoil. (Though it seems a .40 might have been a little too fiesty for a new shooter.) She put 100 rounds through it that day. At the time though there were a few other people at the range shooting as well as me with my 1911 which is far from quiet. So I'm also wondering if the shots in the background are messing with her nerves a bit. She says she feels pretty comfortable though. So I was wondering if you guys had any advice that I can give her besides the ole "practice makes perfect" and "don't anticipate the recoil" saying. I figured it might help getting some insight from you "seasoned " veterans. BTW. We are going to the range again on Wednesday so we're hoping to see a bit of improvement. BTW 2. I put a few rounds through the gun myself. Great pistol. Never a hiccup and it does feel pretty good in your hand. (Never better then my 1911 though) Recoil and trigger pull seem pretty smooth as well. Your 2 cents is appreciated.
