Do any of the rest of you have to relearn good habits when you go shooting and forget bad ones? I don’t think anything exposes that more than trying to stick three magazines worth of rounds in a ring the size of a cantaloupe or better yet a grapefruit at 20 feet.
Today I found that the gun I have had to longest, a 380, was pretty easy at first. The 9mm was closer to a soccer ball size pattern with 24 rounds. The 45 was the hardest. However as I fired more rounds I concentrated more on proper alignment of the front sight and squeezing the trigger.
By the time I was finished practicing I had changed the aiming point for the 45 so that the front blade sat on top of the ten ring. The 9mm was holding at 10 o’clock just inside of the 10 ring and the 380 was just inside the 9mm aiming point.
Does anyone else have to change holds for different guns with different calibers? FYI the 380 is a DA/SA. Once the slide is racked the trigger pull is half what the other two guns have.
For me the good news is even the 45 was all center mass with the big FMJ rounds. The home defense rounds are only 185 gr and look like they will expand to 3/4 of an inch.
