30 feet? not bad. not bad at all.
Cute baby. congrats
Hayes Jr. is certainly worth protecting, no doubt. You're being modest in your shooting ability. Plus you're not all over the place, just tend to be low from what I can tell. That will improve with practice and smoothing out your trigger pull. Good looking gun too.
If you start a post in the Gen'l semi-auto area someone may have some input on your mag's feeding problem. Only thing I might say is if that cartridge in the trigger guard in pic #3 was the last round in your magazine, that just might be the problem.

nice pics and glad to hear you like the new 380 acp.
hows the trigger pull???.I shot one of those about 20 years ago that a bud had and man it was about a 20# trigger pull.hope yours is better.
Have Nuke get you some new mag springs and that should take care of your problem. Give that baby a hug for me will you. Good luck.

and thanks for telling me i shoot ok i try...but i did notice i was shooting low...i have to remember to close my bad eye my vision is 20-50...
thanks as well for your comments about lil nuke!! he's my handsome man!! (and geoff too!!!lol)
Ultra cute baby! Don't let a day go by without counting that blessing.

A lot of springs need to be seasoned this way. If it was pretty hard to load the mag.s because of a stiff spring this should solve both problems. I just took an NRA pistol safety class today and I would highly recommend doing the same. I've been around guns all my 55 years and I learned some good stuff today. If you get a good instructor you will walk away a better and safer shooter and it's worth every penny.
Thanks!! In CT we had to take a safety course to get our CCW and i live with geoff, lol. so I feel confortable with guns thanks goodness...lol. Im right eye dominant. and "legally" blind in the other...so when i look with both its a TINY bit off from just the "good" eye...We just might have to try your idea about the mags, thanks!!

I don't see anything wrong with your ?low? shooting; just tell the "NukeHayes" to lower the dang thing He has the target setting too high
tell him it's "physics" your 5'1" and he's 6'5" targeting for himself = MrsNukeHayes shooting LOW I had a whole spin for this and forgot
and the "babynukehayes' is cute
Nice shooting Tex. Nothing to be assamed of there.
Very good shootin' !! Keep up the good work and oh, BEAUTIFUL youngster!!!
I must say that is one of the cutest babies I have ever seen. Oh yeah, good shooting too
MRSNUKE: "OH thank you ALL very much...lol. i wonder if youre just being nice, lol. i was aiming for the bullseye and didnt hit it once hahaa!"
I think each and every comment was meant. first round, new pistol, no ammo choice (pistol chose that is) yet. a few inches off at that is good. now comes the fun part. More shooting. You'll get it right where you want with a bit more shooting.
