    And here is my best grouping. I just want to become more consistent in my accuracy, and be able to repeat this result consistently. Guess I'll just have to go to the range more. :)

    This was indoors, about 18-20ft with my USPc .45 using 9 rounds of 230gr FMJ.

    If that were an intruder or other type of bad guy, I would say that grouping is 'minute of bad guy', and he would not be getting up.

    To get a hand sized group with a .45 is more than acceptable to do the job. Keep up the good work, and practice, practice, practice.

    I need to make it a habit to go at least once a month and put some rounds down range. My other groupings weren't as tight, but did still meet the hand sized grouping criteria. I just need to get some trigger time to improve and become consistent. I also want to practice two or three round rapid shots and get those accurate.

    I also experimented with some left hand shooting, that was interesting, but not as inaccurate as I thought it would be... good to know. Also it was my first time shooting since getting my Trijicon night sights put on.
