    Just got back from the range with a friend

    I have been trying to get a friend of mine to go shooting with me at the range. He decided to shoot my PX4 instead of renting a range gun, after he looked over all they had to offer.

    So, for 300 rounds, we shot up a lot of paper and filming from different angles.

    He has not shot for many years, but his first grouping were wild, but by his second magazine he had it down to about a 10" circle.

    I think I found someone that will be buying a PX4 for himself soon, and his CWP soon after.

    Me, I got some videos to study. I was able to get most of my magazine groupings to be about a 6" circle at 21', but I have to study the videos to see if I can get that down to a 1" circle.

    Any day which includes a session at the range is a good day.

    I trust your friend had a good time.

    Absolutely, with more practice, you will shrink that grouping.

    Ah, LuxMyPX4. Come to the dark side and you shall receive your 1" circle grouping. So simple my friend.

    sorry I couldn't resist.

    Good job getting your friend shooting. Always more fun with a buddy along.

    If you could guarantee that my friend. But then, How do you see with that black hood?
    Besides, a 6" grouping with a Beretta is better than a 1" grouping with a Glock, Isn't it?

    It didn't happen without pics. Come on, PX, you have been here long enough, you know the rules. No pics, No likes.

    You are right of course. After all, I had a camera and tripod with me in the lane. Unfortunately, all I took was a bunch of videos. if the site will allow a good size video, I will attach it and you all can help me figure out what I am doing wrong.
    But, I just noticed I have to publish the video on a site. If someone knows what the easiest way is, please let me know.

    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.

    THAT'S IT. Now I know my problem. Always wondered why things were a little fuzzy. I'll grab my last target and take pics and post.

    hahaha The friend I brought also brought his 10/22, and he showed me his grouping. at 15 yards. 30 rounds could have been covered with a quarter. I was shocked he had done it without it being a Glock, until he said he used his scope.

    This is what it's all about. Bringing a friend to introduce or re-introduce them to shooting is great. Done it a time or two myself and the outcome is always good.

    Even those who really don't like guns or shooting, when they go, they end up loving it. That's the key. Show them how non-dangerous the gun is in the right hands and all that fear associated with them can vaporize like fog.

    Now the encouragement for your friend to get a concealed carry permit and their very own firearm is next. Good job.

    Figured out how to get videos.
    I watched these on 1/8 speed, and all I could see is that I changed my grip a few times.
    I welcome any and all comments. Next time I will get pics of target.
