Finally Range Time

I was finally able to get out to the range and of course it was wonderful!  Due to ammo shortage I decided to strictly work on grouping and trigger control.  I was very, very pleased with how well I did, even shooting with my left hand went extremely well.  I decided in February to start training my left hand.

My friend and personal trainer was also extremely pleased with my progress.  Granted he refuses to take all the credit, he says that my picking up things in other places has helped but honestly I disagree.  You can read about something all you want but unless you get out and do it, you won't actually know how to do it.

Our last round of shooting we decided to put it out at the 25 yard and each go a round with the .45acp and one round with the .22.  I actually did better than him, I felt kind of bad about that but I figure he was probably just having an off day because there is no way I could do better than someone who has been shooting their whole life.

We are going to look into some public competition shooting matches, I've been curious about trying that, just to see how well I would actually function under pressure, plus I think it would be good practice for conceal carry.

Please keep in mind that it hasn't even been a year since I started shooting pistol so please be kind.

The shots on the right are with my left hand so they aren't so great but the ones closer to center are with my right.
