The days of $300 AK's are long over. The demand is simply too great these days.
The days of $300 AK's are long over. The demand is simply too great these days.I've seen them Between 4 and 5 hundred though. $1000 is still too much in my books.
So I got to shoot a bunch of pistols this weekend and kept shooting low. Anyone have an idea on what I could be doing wrong? By the way, German Lugers are cool. ^_^
I doubt you're flinching, considering you're an experienced shooter, but it might be your grip, it might be that you're jerking the trigger, you might have too light of a grip(but I doubt it, considering), or you might even just be sighting in a little off. It's hard to say without seeing you in action, but those are considerations. I suppose you can figure out which ones it is more likely to be.
I wouldn't be so quick to say I'm not flinching, I think that's the most likely reason. Can you think of anything else off the top of your head? It's definitely not my sight picture or my grip.
If your shooting low check your head position in relation to your sights. (i'm not trying to insult your experience or intelligence) Make sure your eyes are in line with your sights relative to your pistol.
Well, I would say that it's possible, if the firearm in question had adjustable rear sights, that you didn't have them dialed in right, but you shot a bunch of different pistols, and if you're consistently low with all of them, it's highly unlikely - but I'm throwing it out there as a possibility, as in the future, you might be shooting a pistol low, and be doing everything right, so it's worth checking in that future case.
I'm not insulted by any means, could you elaborate some? If I have a good sight picture how am I not inline with the gun and my target? Do you mean I possibly holding the gun too low?
I know its sort of a vague question, but does anyone know of a .22 revolver that holds an abnormally large amount of rounds? I remember seeing one somewhere that held like 9 or 10 rounds a thought it a bit strange.
.22 revolvers often have cylinders with more than six rounds. There is the Ruger Single Ten which is a single action that holds ten rounds. There are others, just do a little google-fu and you should find more.
If you are consistently low (in the same place) then good! you've found a groove that can give you an accurate shot. Don't try to change the way you shoot, just change where you aim. Though this probably is not good advise for professionals.
I don't think we have anyone who is shooting professionally here anymore. However, while it does make sense, it's still better to fix your technique than to just fix your aim.
Well I am building an AR15 with the express intent of competing in CMP service rifle competitions. However, my aim problem seems to be isolated to my pistols at the moment.
It's basically the firearm version of 21 foot guy :P
