    Double/Triple tap? awh heck shooting in general

    At the range I practice at 7', 10', 15', 20' and 25' when pt shooting, one handed and shooting for accuracy, I'm not the best shot out there by anymeans but I find my groups are always 1"-2"top left of the bullseye, except when I shoot with one hand. Any suggestions, am I pulling or pushing the gun up and to the left?

    Now that I'm comfortable with my g26 I decided to try double taps and I find that at 25' my first shot is well placed but the the follow up shot is about 2-3 inches high of the first shot.
    What kind of grouping are you looking for when practicing double and triple tap? Should I wait longer to let the second round go?

    Try printing out error charts like

    it says you may be pushing or incorrectly following through.

    Do you really want all bullets to go into the same hole? 2 or 3" groups on double taps sounds quite acceptable to me.

    Go as fast as you can accurately put the rounds into the "A" zone on an IDPA style target. There is a huge difference between target and combat accuracy. When the groups tighten back up go even a little faster.

    Same hole is o.k. Kind of like shooting a combination in pool. However, putting a round into an already 8" deep wound would increase the likelyhood of overpenetration.

    I like to consider the juice can example. You need to make 2 holes to pour the juice and usually on opposite sides of the can. Air in one...juice from the other.

    The human circulatory system can be considered hydraulic as well. So make 2 holes to increase blood loss in theory.

    I wouldn't worry about waiting if the 2nd shot is kept in line even if it's higher than the 1st shot. At the range time doesn't really matter but in real life it could make a huge difference.

    Agree, a grouping about the size of your fist at 20-25 ft aint bad

    Yep, a fist would equate to a heart, and two or three hits there would be an attitude changer.

    thanks guys, still a newb with handguns, anyone got any tips for correcting the up and to the left hits? The error charts says I'm either pushing, anticipating the recoil or no follow through.

    Also any good websties to buy targets from, the range has a limited variety, not to mention the mark up on em is crazy. I figure I can save some money ordering in bulk.
