Thread: Anyone else can't shoot a particular gun?

  1. Glock 26 - hundreds of rounds and never could get better than about a 7 inch group at 10 yards. My sister (who, as far as I know, has never shot a pistol before) thought it was "cute" and wanted to try it out. Of course, she rips off about a 2.5 inch group her first time, so I guess it wasn't the pistol. I offered to sell it to her, but she declined. So I sold it and bought a S&W 642.

    Everytime I miss it's the gun's fault, not mine. ;)

    Lucky for me.... I haven't found anything that I can't shoot. Of course, there are some that I don't shoot as well as others, but all in all I can keep almost anything in center mass. :D

    I find the Beretta 92 hard to shoot well. Some years bacl I went shooting with a friend who had one. I could hit with it, but it required great mental effort and concentration. Had colt Buntline .22 revolver I couldn't hit anything with, and another that I could shoot like a carbine. I used a borrowed Glock that had a stoppage at least every other magazine for me, but has never failed for its owner. I don't limp wrist an auto. My Steyr S9 has been through hundreds of rounds for me without a failure of any kind. Go figure.

  7. My bugaboo was the Kel-Tec P3AT. Couldn't hit a barn with it from inside the barn.

    In fairness to the gun I had just gotten in to serious gun shooting and it was my 1st mouse gun purchase. After a few weeks of practice I got to where I could hit a barn (If it were a very large barn. I went to a Kahr PM 9 and do much better with it. It's not quite a pocket pistol unless I wear cargo pants but conceals very well in an IWB holster.

    Now I have several months of twice a week practice and my shooting has improve tremendously with the Kahr, My XD 9 and my 1911 .45.

    Maybe it's time to give the Kel-Tec another chance.

    I found the more I aimed my P32 and P3AT the worse I shot. But I started just picking it up, 'pointing' and shooting and I started doing better (like everything staying inside 8" at 21' to 30'. That's how I practice now, I 'look over the sights' and concentrate on the target. For close range reaction shooting it seems to work well for me. Good luck w/ yours :)

    PS, many new KT shooters ,especially P3AT , seem to have FTE troubles. Most of these can be attributed to limp wristing. This has nothing to to w/ how big-a boy ya are or how macho. It has to do with locking your wrist. These light weight guns need a stable platform (a locked wrist ) to operate properly.

    The only handgun I ever had trouble with was the Redhawk .44 mag. The stock handle would not work w/ my hand size and back in those days there wasn't much in after market options out there. Guess I need to try one again w/ the over-sized grips.

  9. Those old ruger grips did not work in my hands either. The Keltec's do ok as long as I don't shoot to many hot rounds. Broken bones in the wrist or corpol tunnel don't help .A friend smashed his hand 5 years ago and still can't fire gloch 17 without cycle problems.

    Yes, I've had it happen in both slow and rapid fire. Interesting in that my carry weapon is a K40, so same mechanics. Never, never have had any issue with mine.

  11. I thought at first it was a mag problem, No problem when I fired.
