For me it really depends on the pistol. You shouldn't be dissapointed at all shooting with steel or non-scope sites at 75 yards if you have nice grouping. In fact I would say that is very good.
Yes it does. I have found like I like handgun scopes with powers no more than 4x. I recommend you shoot with different scopes before you buy one.Drop-Shot said:Redscare I use iron sights now but mabe I will move up to a scope,it sure lenghtens the shooting distance.Drop-Shot
If you want to improve your shooting, take a buddy to the range with you, and have him load your pistol with 4 or 5 empties, and one or two full loads, while you are facing the other way, then you take your pistol andshoot your target. you'll be amazed by the feeling when you pull the trigger and nothing happens, remember the feeling, and learn to relax and not anticipate the recoil, and work on trigger control. One of my shooting buddies and I used to do this alot, and it really tightens up the groups!! :wink:Drop-Shot said:ssnell thats good shooting buddy,I getting a 75 yard group in a 10 inch circle,8-10 inches with a 44mag,iron sights.I know thats not great cause some guys at the range shoot 4 inch metal swing targets at the same 75 yard distance I shoot.They hit 4-5 out of 6 shots.Drop-Shot
Thanks for the suggestion Drop-Shot. I will try the weights along with snap caps or empty cylinders for recoil training. I was starting to get really frustrated.Fuelburns get some hand weights and hold them out,timing your self each time.Each time try to extend the time by 5 sec.I worked my way up to 20 lb weights after my back surgerys and I'm almost as good as I used to be.Drop-Shot
