Well we went out today for her to try her G19 and me to shoot the 24/7. They both shot well. She didn't even want to shoot the 24/7.
Initially I set her target out at about 10 yards, she wasn't even hitting on the paper. So I moved it in closer and she was shooting way, way low. Well after a magazine of that, I got the G19 from her to see if it was the gun or her. It was her. My first shot was in the 2x2 bull area of the target. So I looked at her grip had her readjust her grip some and that brought the shots up some but not where they needed to be.
Finally I adjusted the rear sight so that it would shoot higher, and I took some shots out to about 25 yrds or so. Well it was shooting way high for me so I gave it back to her. She was still shooting a bit low but not as bad. She was really liking the pistol but insisted that her aiming needed to be different than mine.
So finally, I took all the bullets out of the gun and watched her dry fire it a couple of times, well low and behold she was jerking the trigger and the front of the pistol was dropping severely when she pulled the trigger. So I had her take her time and work so that she could pull the trigger without the severe drop that she had earlier. Once she got that down we put the magazine back in it, and guess what she was hitting what she aimed at. We are just going to have to spend some time working with it and getting her better at controlling the trigger.
Both guns shot very well. I had no issues with my 24/7. We shot some white box, and some Miwall ammo, along with some JHP out of both. There were some FTF, and stovepipes with the G19, but it was due to the fact that the 10 yr old son of a friend of ours was limp wristing it. About 8 of 15 shots for him had to be cleared. So after one magazine he went back to the revolver.
All in all it was a good day. Best thing is that this evening when another female friend of ours was over, during the conversation the wife admitted that wearing my Crossbreed with the PT111 the other night around the house was not that bad. Additionally she said that she probably would not carry all the time when I was with her but if she went out by herself she would probably carry her Glock. That is after she finishes the course and gets her license.
Yea, we are making progress.
