shooting like this gives me a good excuse to keep going out. I can tell my wife I have to go shooting so I can "practice" so I can get better...

Dont feel bad mine looks the same if not worse. I am use to shooting single action only and rifles which are nothing like the M&P. Any advice for the both of us on how to practice would be appricated. I dry fire my gun constantly and get it where it never moves but when i shoot at the range it just seems as if the bullets go where they want.

Yup...we are in the same boat...of course its sinking...lol :wink: I have also been spending a lot of time dry firing and trying to get comfortable with my grip. I have been playing with the palm swells some I have shot with the medium and the small. I did better with the small. I am going to try with the large as well. The large doesn't feel the best to my hand, however it does seem to allow me to get the best grip with my support hand, I will try shooting with the large palm swell and find out. Good luck...I would also appreciate any advice or input...

Thanks

I started out shooting low as well and found snap cap's mixed in with regular ammo to be very revealing in my technique. Somewhere on this site there is a picture of a printable correction target which shows what you’re doing wrong when shooting. Here's the link as well: http://www.sportshooter.com/improving/targetgallery.asp



I'm no expert, but when at the range I started putting the target out to about 10-15 feet and only working that distance until I started to see some improvement in my groupings and POA/POI. In fact I'm still working that distance when I start out for the day, then I go out to 7 yards. I will increase the distance when the consistency gets a little better.



The snap caps, close distance, reading this forum, and practice, practice, practice have helped my shooting considerably.

Shep...thanks for the input and link. I had never thought or heard of putting the snap caps into the magazine with regular ammo. I bet that would be very revealing as to what I am possibly doing wrong. I have thought about going closer but it seems so close to me already that I feel I should be able to hit consistently at this distance.



Thanks

Update; Well I am up to 445 rounds thru my M&P9C. I have had one Failure to Fire, the primer was pinged and looked normal, just no bang (Blazer Ammo). On two occasions I believe I did not fully seat the magazine and the trigger seemed like it was the mag safety??? Maybe it was me releasing the slide though I was pulling it back but I think I was letting it close slowly holding it, I am not sure exactly how it would act if I the slide was not fully forward??? I have since made sure I have just been pulling back and releasing the slide, no problems since. I love the gun and have had a blast with it so far. Here is a pic of tonights shoot, my last 18 shots of the night, the top ones were at the head..d'oh...I am still learning.
