I was researching the 'net and discovered this site. I am relatively new to guns and shooting. My oldest son just turned twelve and has taken an interest in hunting. He's completed the safety course and is planning to head out soon with his grandfather (my father-in-law) and uncle to deer hunt. I decided to go with him when he was practicing shooting with my father-in-law and became interested in target shooting as well.

My son already had a bb gun and a pellet gun. Now a friend at work sold us a nice Ruger 22 semi.

We had been shooting the 22 but when my son decided to hunt my father-in-law decided he needed to shoot his 270 to practice. (He's arather big 12 year old- shot the 12 gauge with no trouble)

While we were target shooting my father-in-law brought along 9mm pistol for us to try out. Between enjoying this and my co-worker's encouragement I decided to purchase a handgun and practice. I settled on the M&P .40 over the XD 40 becuase the grip felt better. I came across a used M&P .40 that my co-worker checked out and concludd that it had shot lees than 100 rounds and was a great purchase (<$100 than what I could find brand new).



I'm hoping to learn much from this forum and will probably ask many more questions than answer.



At my coworker's suggestion I purchased 200 rounds of the WWB to break in the gun and a cleaning kit.



I noticed that with the 9mm I was hitting low of the target. Any suggestions to alleviate that when I try out my 40? Any good post/links about actually shooting the gun. I'd like to learn all I can and practice the right way - only perfect practice make perfect.



Thanks in advance,



NWM

Trigger control. Most of the time your either jerking the trigger or anticipating the shot when you shoot low. Practicing with dry fire might help.
