    fisrt gun, first time at range

    This is the first 80 rounds from my first handgun I have ever owned. I love this gun, SA XDm40. Shots were from 15yds (except for the double taps-to head shots, which would have been 18 of the rounds, these were from 10yds) I was very pleased...

    1st - body hits
    2nd - shots to the head after a quick double tap to the body
    3rd - and the culprit, haha, love this gun!

    15 yards? Why are there powder burns on the target?

    Wow! Perfect double and triple taps on your first pistol outing, and at 10 yards, too. What a natural talent you are.

    Ha ha, very funny guys J/K

    This wasn't my first time at a range. I have shot a buddys gun a couple times at a different range back in IL a few years ago. This was just my first gun, and the first time at the range with that particular gun

    I think I am allright (standing still), but I really want to try my hand at that USPSA or IDPA. There is a range nearby that does both...

    Can't speak about USPSA, but, IDPA is a blast (no pun intended). I started IDPA at a local range last October and can't get myself to miss a week. It's sure a lot more dynamic than just stand, point, shoot. I'm sure you'll enjoy either one.
