Five good, five not so good.
I've been shooting handguns for around a year now, and think that I'm starting to see a bit of improvement. My groups are beginning to tighten up, but I still get problems when I lose concentration. I usually shoot at my club's indoor range and am therefore limited to shooting at 15m.
I was there last night and shot my usual 50 shots. Out of the 50, this was definitely my best 10. There are five shots on the center group, the four I put at the points of the compass I think were due to the lack of concentration I mentioned above.
What do you reckon?
Please let us know what you are shooting. Nothing wrong with these. Were the shots in the middle from just 1, 5 shot group or a mix of two groups? I went through a time where I would shoot 5 shot groups with 4 at sub 3" but always have 1 flier out of the 5 and never the same number shot. Sometimes the first, sometimes the fifth or anyone in between. It was just a lack of concentration.
Realize, however, that if you are shooting for home or personal defense, your groups current are plenty tight. To me it's like golf, I played and practiced but one day something just clicked for me to get really good and shoot a round under 80. It took 10 years of shooting in the 80's and 90's to get there.
KEEP AT IT.
Thanks Dsig1, I will definitely be keeping at it. Practice makes perfect, as they say.
I was using my club's Norinco NZ-75 and Magtech ammo. I've still got a year to go before I can legally buy my own pistol, so I'm somewhat limited in choice. I like the feel of the CZ clones (I've shot a bit with a friend's Tangfolio too) though, so I think that I'll probably go for one of them (or perhaps even a genuine CZ!) when I eventually get the go ahead to buy one.
The middle group is a composite from the two series of five shots, so it'll be a while before I get a 'hole-in-one'!
Once I can get consistently good scores/groupings I'd like to try IPSC, as it looks like a lot of fun.
For 15 meters, that's pretty good freehand

Not bad at all Jeff..I agree with the comments by literaltrance & beretta-neo..
That is roughly about 15 to 16 yards..
