  1. Such thing as too heavy gun?

    I think this is something you'll have to answer for yourself. When I hold a plastic gun, it feels too light. Like a toy. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. Tight groupings at up to 12 yards, slop further out.

    Just got back from the range. I focused on shooting at 20 yards. It's the furthest I can shoot in this range. I shot 100 rounds. Concentrated on all the tips you guys gave me. Making sure front sight is in focus. Worked on precision... aiming small and keeping my aim constant through a string. Tight grip. No limp wrist. Result... much better. I had a few flyers but most of my strings were tight. Target posted is my last 25 rounds. I was shooting 5 shot strings. Cadence was about a second, maybe two per round. I felt much more relaxed today. I thinker that helped. Is this decent shooting? It's hard for me to judge. I am better than most of the folks I see at the range but they could all suck. LOL BTW, This was shot with 115g S&B new ammo. That's a quarter for scale. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Tight groupings at up to 12 yards, slop further out.

    I think you're right. I know I instantly get in my head when I move the target back to end of the range. I like your idea of trying to shoot further distances. I am gonna try a different range. Outdoor with steal targets. The indoor maxes out at 20 yards. My thought is shooting at the outdoor with all the steal targets already staged at different distances is a more relaxed setting. Plus, just the different venue may help me get out of my head. Gonna see if I can make it out there next weekend. Did you notice any issues with my grip in the video?
  4. Tight groupings at up to 12 yards, slop further out.

    Hmm... I definitely have not ruled out ammo. Today I was shooting new S&B 115g brass FMJ. I also shoot Blazer Brass in 115g and 124g FMJ. My eye sight is great. I see better than 20/20. Had LASIK about a year ago. And this is all freestyle. Traditional grip. Isosceles stance although I do stand with my right foot slightly behind left. Here is a video of me shooting. This was taken a couple of months ago. My grip may have changed a little since this was shot but not much. Unfortunately, you can't see the left hand from this angle. Hoping it's still helpful. Not sure if you see any iasues. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. Just what the titles says. Need help. Little bit of background. I shot a gun for the 1st time about 14 months ago. I got my 1st pistol in March. I've been hitting the range consistently since then. I go at least once a week. More in the last month. I have 2 pistols now, SP-01 and 1911 Loaded Target, both in 9mm. I shoot exclusively at paper, in an indoor range. I have been focusing on increasing the distance to target over time. I'm pretty darn good at up to 12 yards. Pretty tight groups. Within an inch when I am focused and not tired. The problem is that once I push the target out beyond that, I got sloppy. I just don't get it. What I mean by sloppy is my groupings are like 6 inches apart. All around the bullseye. All my shots still hit all on the 8.5x11 sheet of paper. Am I being unrealistic? Should I expect to make 1 to 2 inch groups at distances of 15+ yards? What do you think is wrong? Is it just a matter of practicing more at these dustances? I think its mental. I get a little anxious when I see the target is farther out and I lose my focus on fundamentals. At least it's what I think is happening.

  6. CZ SP01 Sight Upgrade

    DO NOT buy Dawson's recommended set. The front sight is too tall for the rear they package it with. Ends up shooting low by about 2 inches at 10 yards. They sent me a custom shorter front sight for free. Haven't installed it yet but I am afraid it's gonna be too short. I think it's .120 I have heard good things about the CGW set. It's what I will buy of the new shorter sight doesn't work out. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. CZ SP01 recoil spring

    I think I read somewhere that the dove tail doesn't fit the SP-01. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  8. CZ SP01 recoil spring

    For sights, get the CGW black rear, FO front sight. DO NOT get the rear and front sight kit from Dawson. Their front sight is not properly sized to the rear they sent. Its too tall at .150. You will wind up shooting 2 inches too low. They will send you another from sight, but then you are stuck with a tiny front. Something like .120. This is what happened to me and a couple of others. Again, go with the CGW set if you want FO. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. What do you have in your range bag?

    My range bag has two large compartments that have loop strips to add hook and loop attachments. I want something to carry pin punches and other small tools. Any suggestions? This is the where I want to attach it. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. What do you have in your range bag?

    Cool. You guys have listed stuff I wouldnt have thought of packing until I needed it. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. What do you have in your range bag?

    What tools do you carry? I am guessing everything you need to fix any possible malfunction? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Exactly what the title asks. Just trying to learn what I should have in my range back for a day of shooting. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Should I Collect My Brass

    Admittedly dumb regarding this topic but all the ejected cases I have seen always have the primer in them. I assumed that when you sell your "brass", its the case and the primer. I sounds like it is not. ?? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Thanks Grumpy. Did not know this. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
