Thanks man. I got a browning buckmark a year ago and went thru 5k rounds. I love shooting. Im addicted big time. 2 months ago i got a ket-tec p3at and just got my first glock. So this is my first big boy gun lol. I was so excited to get this glock, like a little kid a Christmas. Maybe you can answer this for me....i shot that browning excellent, to the point that my expierenced friends were amazed at how good of a shot i was and even my little kel-tec with a 2.5inch grouping at 15 yards which is good for that little gun but im struggling with my g27! Been thru 150 rounds and its so poor that you cant even measure a grouping lol. Any advise??? but i still love it, no way am i going to give up on it.

Where are your misses? Are they generally located in an area or all over? The most likely culprit is recoil as the .40 is pretty "snappy" and you may be flinching, without even knowing it, in anticipation of the recoil. If you are low left, that is a possible reason. Look around the forum, there is a "pie chart" that suggests technique issues based on miss locations.

Im a lefty. I saw that chart. I have notice that im low, very low!
I bought an inexpensive pistol "rest" from Midway for @ $20 which really helped me. By having the rest, I could not only "know" the exact sight picture of my specific gun, but I could see just how accurate my Glock is.... That clarity and confidence started me on the path (which I believe I'll be on a long time) to more accurate weapon control.

Good luck... But remember, even struggling can be fun.... At least you're shooting!

They were telling me that i can dry fire that thing like crazy and it wont hurt it. Told me to put a dime on top of the slide and practice dry firing it, making sure that dime stays on top of the slide. I will practice this tonite for sure!!!

Thanks bearone2. I still want to think that i will be fine. I shoot my other 2 hadguns pretty good and my rifles the same. I have to be slapping that trigger!
Probably don't need to ad this, but if your not sure where there going, start close then move back as you get used to it and can control your grouping. And welcome from another newb!
