Putting lead downrange.

Have someone else load your magazines. Have them throw in a dummy round halfway through every now and then.
When you hit the dummy, you'll SEE what you are doing on every round but you won't have the recoil to bring your hands back into position.

It's amazing sometimes. The first time I did it, I pushed the muzzle down a good 6".

In some respects, it's almost better to have a gun with an inconsistent trigger break because you won't get used to it firing at a particular point in the trigger pull.

Women make very very good shooters because they have zero problems using a smaller caliber and they don't have a macho thing to combat. (Not saying you do).....its just common.

Seeing many people in basic rifle marksmanship, I've seen new shooters of both sexes......many times, new female shooters listen and are more in tune with technique and qualify better than first time male shooters.

Again, don't take that personally.....im just stating what I have seen and been told for years.
I have a .22lr conversion for my 3rd gen Glock 22. Definitely worth the money spent. Cheap ammo and you can still practice the fundementals as Brock states.

Front sight, Front sight, Front sight.....slow and steady press of the trigger (unlike porn, no jerking allowed).

But seriously... here's my "low" shooting.

This is 48 rounds from my RIA 1911, cycling 2 to the chest and 1 to the head.
The head shots were aimed "between the eyes" (at the 5) and ended up going through the mouth (but effective apricot shots).

I'll have to get some snap caps this week when I have time and try that out. I have tried the dime trick before, and do it every now and then while sitting in bed watching tv... I actually have a MP .22 I just bought the other day to so I may give that a try...

Getting better....practicing the basics definitely helps. Slow and steady, in time, speed and accuracy.

If you aren't already, try really pulling the gun towards you with your left hand and pushing outward with your right (if you're a righty). The opposing forces can really stabilize your shot without just death gripping the gun.

These are always a good choice too:

I tried to order a set of those for my 1911, but apparently he only makes them for the Glock-Fo-Tay and the Glock-Nine.
