Lessons from my snubbie
My Glock had me thinking that I shot like an action-hero. I can hit just about anything with it, and pretty quick too.
But then I picked up an S&W 637... It quickly pointed out to me every bad habit that I had. Just today I was at the range, putting every round 4" Northeast of the bullseye. I had to put the gun down, mentally regroup, and go back to the basics. Everything from stance, grip tension, trigger control and breathing. Eventually I started pulling them in (but I still stunk).
At the end, just for kicks, I pulled the Glock back out and sent the target down to the far end of the range. Yup, I did better then too.
The bad news is that I'm not trusting myself with the snubbie as a primary yet. The good news is that it's gonna make me a better shooter.

Isn't that amazing how that works... :-) I've noticed being 98 % of my shooting time is with my G26, and when I pick up my HP I group really tight,.. Part of practice needs to be refocusing,. Bad habits can form without us knowing it,..

Better? Doesn't look too bad now.

Well that was at 21 feet with .44 Magnum rounds, but give me a little time, I'll get them all through the same hole

Yikes! I can tell that's actually six shots too! Maybe do a smiley-face next time!?
