    For consistent groups- biggest factor for me was consistent trigger press. I tried pinning the trigger and it sucked.
    I started doing deliberate full presses and “resetting during recoil”, and me groups got much more consistent.
    It also took time for me to get used to it- just spending time at that distance helps.
    Everything needs to be the same each shot. Grip pressure, grip, trigger press, reset, sight picture, etc

    What I learned is that after about 600 rounds in 100 degree heat, I don't really GAF where my front sight is when the shot breaks.

    Unfortunately, I learned this on the plate rack at a GSSF match yesterday.

    Ahh, it's only money.

    Kind of dumb, but never realized how important a simple shot timer is. I don't shoot competitively so never used one. After having it though, it was incredible getting that feedback and having an objective way to measure performance. I don't think one single thing has improved my shooting more than that. I like the little bit of stress it adds. Also really highlights stuff in desperate need of attention...in my case mag changes were abysmally slow. I hadn't really considered that as being something I did really badly until I measured it. Also highlighted a bad habit of wanting to move my feet transitioning targets (that are fairly close to each other) instead of just shifting my hips which showed up in splits. Also awesome for highlighting issues that result from a grip that needs some work. Until seeing the time loss at 3rd or 4th target & figuring out that was where I was wanting to "milk" my grip a bit, i thought it was pretty good. Just nice to do different drills & get that instant feedback, dissect where the lost time going, and know what needs the most attention. Since I mostly shoot alone, wish I would have thought to get one years ago.....

    So you learned what?

    The Beretta M81FS I carry really takes extra effort and practice to get good A zone hits at 25 yds.

    I think the biggest reason is the small sights and short sight radius.

    When I shoot nearly any larger pistol at 20-25 yd A-zone hits go way up along with speed.

    I love the little Beretta but it's really more of a 15 yd pistol without considerable, recent practice. It's taken about 4 years for me to realize this, or maybe, admit it to myself.

    I donít know if Iíve just gotten worse or if Iíve always been this bad at it, but I really suck at wanting to see my target. Even when itís clean, my eye is just drawn to whatever the target is and I really have to force my sights higher (I hold them low so that I can see) and focus on the front sight. Obviously optics very much help compensate for this habit.

    I have several steel targets hanging around my property in the wooded area along the creek bed that I regularly shoot. When I had them painted white I found myself looking at the target to see the hits instead me watching my front sight. So I painted them camouflage with khaki and OD green. This 1. Made the targets more realistic and 2. Kept me from looking for the hits and just being satisfied with the ring while concentrating on my front sight. I go forward later to look at the hits.
