Both, the camera, and I must do some more practicing too. But I'm working on it.
(I mean WE are working on it, my gf also shooting.) Too bad we can't make it to the range every weekend.
I can see you guys are both new to shooting. Tell your girlfriend to lean into the gun a little instead of leaning backwards and the recoil will be much more manageable. It looks as though she may out shoot you with the 1911 at this point, since she is at least holding it somewhat steady prior to firing it. But you guys need to seriously work on your stance and grip and trigger pull. As it is right now, you wont hit much. Take this as constructive criticism if you really want to learn how to shoot. When shooting your pistol, stand with your feet about shoulder width apart and slightly bend your knees, bring the gun up to eye level and lean your upper body forward just a little. Prior to taking your shot, concentrate on the front sight lining up level with the rear and center on the target and then take a breath and let it out and squeeze the trigger straight to the rear easy and fluid, the shot should come as a surprise. You will be a better shot in no time.
