      I might finally have a gun I can carry!

      I cannot carry my Ruger SR9c, because it's just a little too big for me.

      I could not carry a Kimber Solo, because it is a mythical creature.

      I could not carry my Ruger LC9, because (don't laugh) I could NOT pull the trigger.

      So, today I purchased a Sig p938... WISH ME LUCK!

      ...Just don't forget to keep practicing!
      Little guns are hard to shoot.

      It's a miniature 1911, and I do like 1911s. Even 1911s in .380 ACP.

      I'm sure that the following is a case of trying to teach gran'ma how to suck eggs, but...
      Keep your eyes on exactly the location on the target where you want to place your hit.
      The gun comes out of its holster.
      The gun and your master hand are met by your support hand.
      About halfway up from that meeting to eye-level, your thumb presses the safety off. Your thumb stays on the safety, pressing down, from then on.
      As soon as your eyes acquire the sights, your finger finds the trigger.
      Press.
      Recover.
      Repeat.

      Sweet, that 938 is looking nice, my next purchases will be for a bug. That 938 is right at the top of the list, just can't figure out if I want to go with a J frame Smith or a Ruger LCR.

      Love the looks of that gun. Got any reports yet on how you like it?

      I like it a lot. I shot a little over 100 rounds last weekend, but I didn't do great. I've shot right hand/left eye forever, but finally figured that if I want to do better, I need to use my left hand. It's a difficult adjustment. I am going out again tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes and post some photos.

      Let us know how it goes.I don't believe swapping hands will cure it though.Might but.....Shooting weak hand is always something you have to practice,along with one handed,but generally being cross dominant shouldn't make a big deal.I'm cross dominant as you are,so I accepted it after I got frustrated trying to retrain the eyes.Shooting normally I just adjust the head,but on a short sight radius it may aggrevate things.I'm not stuck to one shooting platform though,I can transition through Weaver,Modified Weaver and Isosolese without moving anything from the waist down in 180 degree arc.

      Come back with the outcome though,the smallest gun I ever owned was a Sig 230 and it was just for those few times it was so much easier to not fuss about concealment.It was a darn good gun and I was SD accurate at short range,but it was one of those "better than nothing" deals.Good luck and hope it improves the outcome for you.

      Good luck with switching. Usually people have one side that's dominant, but if you can pull that off, more power to ya. How about the trigger? I know you were having trouble finding a gun with the right trigger pull. I've been quite in love with some of the latest sigs, I just might pull together some moolah to get one myself.

      I started shooting with my left hand, by my husband's suggestion, last week and I was, surprisingly, immediately more accurate. I've always shot rifles left handed, but it never crossed my mind to try with a pistol. The only really difficult part is un-training my hands to do all of those little things that had become so natural. Practice...

      The trigger is great! My finger reaches just fine, it's not a long pull. It just plain works the way I need it to.

      Ah,that changes the picture.I grew up with a friend back in the BB gun days that was a righty but shot lefty.Damn good shot but until you said that I forgot all about it.If that's the case with you,I now know 2 people that shoot best that way.Glad things are coming around and it's great your husband thought of it.

      Nice gun, but you really thought the Ruger was too big?
