    First Time Gun User

    Hello! I went to a range yesterday to shoot for the day. I've never shot handguns before, but I've used a rifle and a shotgun a few times in the past. A friend and I spent a few hours shooting and went through about six different guns. From what I remember they were:

    Glock 17/19
    Springfield XD
    Sig Sauer
    1911
    Ruger
    Smith & Wesson M&P9

    All 9mm.

    Out of the bunch, I liked the S&W the most and I shot the most consistently with it.

    Here are some photos of my last few targets of the day to show my grouping. I guess I'll post them in the Range Report section to get some advice on how to shoot better?

    S&W M&P9 at 42-45 feet, 8 inch targets:

    nice shootin! how far out were the targets? ya know, there is a target that will tell you what you need to correct based on where your shots land. I think it is in one of the range report forums.

    anyways, see ya around.

    Those targets were 14 yards out or around there. So... about 42-45 feet.

    Yeah, I think I've seen a few of those around. One is like a pie chart almost, right?
