Thought it would be fun to have a place where we could post some of our targets. I really don't shoot with many other people. I have only really been actively shooting handguns for the last year and I usually go to a public range that is just on some state property. There usually isn't anyone there so I often shoot alone or with my wife and kids. So I don't really know what a good marksman's targets look like. I would love to see some pictures of targets you guys have shot.

Anyway I was bored for a few minutes this afternoon and ran up to the range. I just got some magazine pinkie extensions and a trigger shoe (wider trigger) for my Kel-Tec P3AT and wanted to go test them out. I also had just bought some new personal defense ammo and wanted to make sure it ran fine in my gun.

So here it is. Let me know what you think. I think its pretty good for such a small gun, but don't really have anything to compare to. I would especially be interested to get any input on why I consistently shoot right with this gun. I shot at 8 yards. I shot 13 times and all are on the target but only 1 shot is to the left of center. I don't shoot like this (to the right) on my Ruger P89 (9mm). Any ideas, suggestions.

Not bad. :)

Here's one of the target & my home defence shotgun that shot the group.

Gun: Saiga-12 with 19" barrel & Armson dot sight.
Target: 5 12ga slugs at a distance of 50yds.

Shooting to the right typically means you're gripping too hard or 'thumb squeezing' right before the the gun fires. It's a bit more common on smaller guns because you've got so much more thumb on the gun. Usually just a more relaxed grip and dry firing to relieve the 'thumb squeeze' will remedy it.

Mr. Magnum,
Tell me more about that gun of yours. I had seen your avatar pic, but just assumed it was some kind of assault rifle. I have never seen a shotgun quite like yours. It is pretty cool. Tell me about it.

The Saiga shotgun came about when the Russians decided they needed to adopt a shotgun for use by the military & special police units. They just started with an AK-103 receiver, modified the bolt, made the gas system adjustable, ext. to create an AK shotgun. Then it was also adapted to hunting & modified to be legally imported here.

This is basically how they look when you first buy one.


Then by using the proper number of U.S. parts, you can legally convert it back into its original configuration like I have.
I also got a custom bayonet mount from Tromix which allows an AR-15 bayonet to be mounted....ya know, just to further anger the anti-gun folks. :twisted:

Or have too much finger across the trigger? Pulling the gun back to the right (for a right handed shooter).
