some before and after shots with my xdm compact .40

first time ever shooting at 10 yrds 2-3 mags


after a few weeks of working on my grip and trigger control at home this is the second time out at 10 yrds



first time..15 yrds 10 round groups



second time out at 15 yrds 10 rd groups


i love seeing actual improvement like that.

You show signs of improvement, young Jedi...

Ok, corny sayings aside, you can do some drills at home dry firing for greater, faster and cheaper improvements. (Dry is no ammo in the gun, magazine or in the room even!).

Take an empty shell case and balance it primer side down on the top of the front sight. Take aim and squeeze the trigger without knocking the case off. (hard at first, but easy once you settle down). Buying a cheap laser site and dry firing at a fixed spot will also show you if the gun bobbles while firing.

Nice improvements! Hopefully I'll see some improvements when I'm able to get back out there.

also did another target like this with the about the same amount of ammo.... more accurate (most went in that big hole) but im getting more wild shots.. maybe i'm over griping the gun.



i like that im putting huge holes in paper now though! only 4th time out
