    Not really sure what the deal is. Is this you shooting? I mean, while its not too bad to hit the plate at that distance, its not what I would call amazing. But, how about clarifying whether its you or you just thought it was great shooting and wanted us to see it. Thanks.

    Man when I was 5 years old I was shooting .5" 300 yard groups off hand with a 44mag with an 8" barrel.

    I'm amazed at your mastery of the English language

    "How long before you were this amazing"?

    What does that mean?

    Yea, OK Tango... I group nice groups at 40 yards with my 1911s quite often. I am not as good as I used to be since I am a bit shakier in my old age, but I can still group at that distance no problem. I used to ring steel targets at 100 yards with pistols too.

    Now that is realistic and is pretty much my story. Anymore I can still hit a target at 100 yards, but my misses are more and my draw back is my sight. I just got new seeing glasses for the first time so we will see how I do. Dang, getting old sucks. Also, the video won't play for me. I guess I won't see anything amazing this morning.

    Now do it with one hand at 100 yards.

    Then switch hands and do it again.

    Than you can call me amazed. :D

    Hey welcome to the forum ShooterBoy. Seems we have been coming down pretty hard on you. If I understand your video you are a new shooter only one week into shooting. You got 5 out of 10 shots on the plate at 37 yards While that may not rank as amazing I will say it is respectable for a new shooter. Some of the Old Guys I shoot with may not be able to do any better but none of us would rank as good pistol shots. What pistol were you shooting?

    Yeah, whatever haters. That was like my 4th time shooting, and I'm mega proud of those shots. You're not going to rain on this dude's parade; I was happier 'n hell to consistently hit the target every time I backed further up. At 43 feet my grouping is more solid, but if you look at the perspective, the grouping in that video was the size of a side portion on a paper dinner plate.

    Eh, I suppose I did come off a little like a d-bag, but son I was excited about those shots. It's an older FN .40 cal, the type without the outside hammer.
