    Need help finding a "target"

    I used to have a "target" I downloaded from a target site. Specifically, this printout had common shooting errors (trigger, palm, grip, flinch, etc.) at 1 o'clock, 2 o'clock, 3, etc... to tell the shooter what he or she is doing wrong and how to correct it, based upon shot patterns and placement.

    My son told me of his low and left shot placement and I cannot remember what he's doing wrong. I guessed he is anticipating the shot and trying to "push" the bullet out of the barrel. He isn't printing high and right as one might guess with recoil anticipation.

    Does anyone remember seeing this "target" in their travels? Any advice from fellow members would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Tim

    Just recieved it. Between job, and trying to get all the financial aid ready for college I haven't been up to date on these forums nor my email. Thanks a bunch for the diagram, I guess I really was tightening my grip when I think about it :S We'll put the theory to the test next range trip...

    I was printing about a 'quarter inch low to the left at 15 yds in the indoor range.

    OT: Still VERY pleased with the baby eagle. Next range trip I'll be testing out my mom's .357 - never shot one, should be interesting.

    if you are only a quarter inch off at 15 yards, you're doin pretty good :P

A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

    From another Lefty

    Could also be nothing more then the old flinch !!! Best thing to
    do is put dummy round in with live and see what heppens when
    dummy round comes up.. In a heartbeat you will know what you
    are doing - right and wrong.. Don't let him load his own mags.
    Will count down and know the dummy is coming.. On a wheel
    run no more then Russian Roulette, with a dummy in.. Load
    spin, lock up and shoot...
