    Talking Went to range today

    Only fired like 40 rounds, but I was pleased. Hate to take up room here to post pics, so here is the link.

    I thought the weapon fired pretty well. Actually, it is the most comfortable weapon I have ever fired.

    I'm not the absolute best shot. All in all I think the results are great.

    Good shot group or bad shot group, whatever you think. I can only say that I would not want to be in my sights!!!!!

    Looks like you're anticipating the recoil a bit and pushing the barrel down, resulting in the low hits... That'll come. Shoot about a thousand more through it, and practice, practice, practice.

    Good start though!

    Thanks Jeff. I'm not sure when I picked that up. 'Course it's been years since I fired on a regular basis. When I was in the military, consistently put 49 of 50 in the black. Never failed to shoot expert!

    Although it's not the best pattern, I am pretty satisfied and confident that I would hit whatever I pointed the barrel at!

    But you are right, practice, practice, practice!

    Could be too much trigger finger and not enough grip also.

    Low (especially low and left if your a righty) is often a sign of your trigger finger pulling the barrel down.

    Yep, it's wanting to be a tight group. Check trigger finger placement, and straight back pull. Pick up a snap cap or two and do some ball/dummy drilling to make sure there's no anticipation.

    Overall good placement though. I'd take it.

    Thanks guys. Guess if I was way left or down, I'd be concerned. Being I am not a competition shooter I'm pretty satisfied with the groups and placement.

    I am puzzled though that my off hand (one hand grip) groups were much better than my two hand stance grouping.

    Thanks again for all the advice.

    Where's your Point of Hold (vs POI)? My new M&P grouped about 1.5-2" LOW my first mag, since the POI is directly BEHIND the front sight, as opposed to on TOP of the front sight, where both my XDs hit.

    I know, you're 3-5" low, but it you're use to alligning at the bottom of the bullseye on those big black bulls, you're hitting right "under/behind" the front post. My "bullseye" on the targets I shoot is about 2" across. With my XDs, I'd "split it" so could see the top half of the bull (my preference). With the M&P, I have to "block it out".

    Jeff, That makes sense. Next time out I'll adjust POA a bit and see what happens.
