n00b fighting with Glock 34 recoil at the range
Trying to decide on my first handgun. Been shooting at the range twice, so I know nothing at all, except that I am a crappy shot and I have fun shooting :mrgreen:
I measured the diameter of my groups on both my trips to the range, and while it's only a total of 400 rounds (50 rds per gun per trip to the range), it worked out like this: (everything shot at 15 yds because 25 yards looks like a mile away)
Avg group diameters:
Glock 34 -- 3.8"
Beretta 92FS -- 2.1"
Springfield XD 9 5" -- 2.05"
Glock 17 -- 3.95"
I really like the way the Glock sits low in my hand, but the results seem to be telling me that I don't have what it takes to use a Glock accurately. A friend told me it's hard to control the recoil on Glocks because they're so light, and it penalizes the incompetent.
For you masters of Glock, am I hopelessly Glock-challenged, or is this actually a normal / common problem for beginners?
Thanks for any education....
