I have a 23 Gen 4 and a 26 Gen 4, but today I jumped in to Gen 5…
19193

There was a brand new shiny 19 Gen 5 in the case. I had to make a quick decision. I brought it home. I’ll get it to the range this weekend…

Glock is the best gun out there, but I live an infamous life, since I don't own one. I am looking at getting another 1911 .45 though; perhaps a Mossberg 12 gauge too. I am set in my ways I guess.
I must be a poo head.:poop::geek::alien:

Allright… I’ve had a few outings with the pistol now. I really like it. I put Ameriglo Agent sights on it. This was my first trip for some target practice with the new sights. It hit where it was pointed. I like the pistol and the sights.

What was your distance from the target? Anyway that’s a really good group.

I’m only 40 to 50 feet from the target. I really practice on the slow straight back squeeze. I want to be better. If ammo ever gets affordable again, I’ll get more time behind the trigger. I’m thinking about getting a new trigger connector to lighten and crisp it up a little, but I know the pistol is more capable than I am. I hesitate to post like this on a lot of forums because they will over criticize my shooting. It ain’t great but it’s good enough. And I have fun doing it.

That’s a good group, and anyone that would criticize it as bad shooting, is a simp. 🦅

Nothing wrong with your grouping, people who criticize never show their targets. As far as further mods to your gun accuracy has more to do with the shooter than the gun. Many years ago I went through the Navy Rangemaster/ Small Arms Instructor class. The instructors were all members of the Navy pistol and rifle shooting teams. All of us but a few guys were shooting good, the ones not doing well constantly blamed the old 1911’s we were shooting. We even traded pistols and they still shot horribly.
For the final shoot off one of the instructors broke out the hand tuned Colt National Match Gold Cup that he used in competition. It was one of the finest guns I have ever shot. The guys who blamed the old 1911’s we were shooting surprisingly still shot poorly even with the finest pistol they will ever shoot.
You can throw all the money you want at your gun and it will not change bad shooting habits.
Use the money and get some training and you will be amazed at how well you can shoot any factory gun. Another thing is start at 7 or 10 yards, get your groups tight and then move out farther.

I agree with everything you said. I do plan on practicing a lot more. I don’t blame the pistol, I know that it is far more accurate than I am. Thank you for your comment. It is well received.
