Hey All,

I just purchased a new Glock 19 and this is my first post on a Glock forum.

So I finally got a chance to take the gun to the range the other day and the options were either 10 yards or 25 yards. At 25 yards, I could barely make out the darn target, so I stuck with 10 yards! :)

Anyway, here are my first 25-ish shots, using 115gr Freedom Munitions target ammo. I had zero problems with the ammo, but as you can tell, I did have some problems with where I was putting the rounds on paper. For most of the shots, the grouping was fairly tight for my first time shooting, but of course, my consistency got took a dump as I shot because I started to think too much. Those 5 or so flyers outside of the box are the result of me questioning each of those pulls.

Can anyone give me feedback on what a shooter is generally doing wrong if virtually all of his/her rounds land due west of the intended target? I'm not off by a huge distance, but the consistency of the shot placement tells me I'm doing something consistently incorrect.

I did have someone else there and he shot both his G19 and my own, back to back and he was putting the same ammo, through the same targets/distance in the same place (dead on), with both G19's. This leads me to believe the sights are fine. Perhaps it's my own sight, but I think it's simply something mechanical that I am doing incorrectly.

Thanks in advance!
