HOW ACCURATE-AGAIN

Post by fully machined » June 17th, 2012, 10:24 pm

I just picked up the one on the left, a 1970 round hammer, for $150.00 OTD. Like I needed another one. I was shooting very bad today, so just looked at my new pistol for a while and tried some more to hit something with it. All the while someone at the end of the range was dinging metal targets he at set up at various distances like there was nothing to it. He let me shoot his green dot mark 111 Ruger, a pistol I a very familiar with and I still was not shooting good—bad day. I asked him if he would like to shoot a P-64 and he said, “A P-64, what is that?” This would be a good test of my new 64 and my hot rod “smoothie.” These are his five shot groups at 25 feet, sitting, with hands resting on the bench and not wasting any time about it. The bull group is all from my smoothie. The P-64 is more accurate than I will ever be able to use. He told me I was “milking” the grip and flinching. I agreed and was glad that I let him shoot it before I started to work on the sights. I have done this with other pistols and it was me and not the pistol.

it's nice when you can get a set of "fresh hands" on a gun to see if you or the gun is the problem. usually its me.

I had one of those days today, my normally very accurate P64 was having lots of fliers, then I picked up my P1. Same thing! My girl next door came over hearing me shooting and joined in and showed me how to bulls eye with the little gun and the big one. I will try again tomorrow.

The flinch cure, learn how to not flinch when shooting a flintlock.

Some years ago, maybe 15+, I became addicted to flintlocks and had several
But never cured the flinch thing totally or as much as you can until I set about
doing just that. No shooting, just learning not to flinch.

After a few weeks I pretty much got rid of it and it is not a problem 98% of the time
anymore. I never had a flintlock pistol but I bet it would be a riot to shoot and very
accurate as well.

Now trigger pull is another story.
