Hurry Up and Wait! And a Question!
I Just finished the CHL Class with 100 on the written and 247 on the shooting. I flinched on one of the shots - made me mad at myself. However, for only having shot a pistol for one month, I was pretty happy.

All of my paperwork has been sent, so now all I can do is practice and wait.
Speaking of practice, I had been doing all of my shooting with two hands. Quite often, my shots were low and left of center. 95% of my shots stayed on an 8.5"x11" target but only about 50% in the 6" or smaller target.
I am left-eye dominant and right handed. Yesterday, I decided to practice one handed. I was really shocked: 9 out of 10 shots were in the bulls-eye! I tried several different targets including a 6" square target and again hit bulls-eyes from 50'.
I am at a loss to figure out why my two-handed shooting is not as effective as my one-handed shooting. It could be the grip, the angle of the pistol, or the eye-hand dominance difference.
Any suggestions on how to develop a successful two-handed grip?
Should I just forget about shooting two-handed and stay with one-handed shooting?
