    USPc .45 SS Range report (some questions)

    Hey all! So I hit the range today with my USPc and about 70 rounds of bottom of the line lawmen 230gr ammo. This is my second time out with this gun.

    When I started out, I was not shooting well at all! I tried tricking myself and would shoot with nothing in the chamber and found out that I would "push" forward and down when I shot. I don't usually do this with my other guns. As I worked with it I got better towards the end of my range session. My question is how do I prevent this so it does not happen next time? I will keep dry-firing and was wondering if this had anything to do with me not being use to the trigger. I am use to the match trigger on my Tac and I can get nice 1" groups with that no problem. So what are your opinions? I really like feel of this gun and can't wait to get better with it. This thing shoots softer then all of my .45's!

    Here are some of my last groups of the day. Lawmen 230gr, 12 yards, 5 shots, un-supported

    I think I said it before - when i got my USPc in 9mm, I kept shooting low - At first I thought it was the sights - as I don't do this with other guns. I still had my fullsize USp at the time, and I shot that gun fine.

    After a few trios, I shot well with it every OTHER trip. Then, by 800 rounds, I started to get consistent.

    I let someone else shoot 1 mag thru it last month - sure enough - he fired all shots low.

    For whatever reason, ya gotta "work" at it. Just keep shooting it. It will come.

    Granted, I haven't had to do that on my other guns - at least not to this extent. But, just keep shooting w/ it. I have almost 1300 rounds thru mine now.

    Dry fire. Another thing that can help is hold the sights on target for a slow three count after firing. Kinda like a follow thru on basketball shot.

    It took me a bit to get used to the trigger as well. I was used to short, crisp 1911 triggers.....

    I don't know if this will help or not, but one thing I started doing about a year ago, was dry firing with an empy shell casing sitting on the slide, and learning to pull the trigger without the shell falling off and this really helped me to learn to keep all my guns steady while shooting without anticipating the shot. I usually do this with my Sigma, due to the heavier trigger pull but anytime I get a new gun I train with that gun as well but it don't work with a Beretta.

    Nickel on the front sight will do the same thing... I've done that before w/ my USPc.
