G20, G22 shooting issues

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

A couple of people on other threads have said they had trouble shooting their Glocks -- wondering if any others have changes the sights and if it made a difference?

Any and all thoughts, please.

Thanks

Some people have a hard time with glocks when they first get them. If you are limp wristed your glock will act up. From the elbows down you have to keep consistant form. This shouldn't be a problem if you have shooting experience.

I did not like the "post and dot" factory sites on my g23 so I had trijicon 3 dot greens put on. After adjusting for windage the gun shoots great. I have shot thousands of rounds threw it, as many as 250 in a day and have never had a jam, failure to feed, failure to fire, nothing.

Hitman:

What do you mean by "trouble shooting"? I might be able to give you some suggestions as I am a certified Glock armorer and firearms instructor. Is the weapon failing to operate correctly or is the operator failing \:\) Where are the rounds hitting in relation to where you are aiming?

I am not saying this is true in your case...but in my experience, the vast majority of shooting problems has little to nothing to do with the actual weapon. It can be traced back to the basic stuff. Stance, grip, sight alignment, trigger pull, flinching..etc. I would rule out the above before moving the sights on the weapon.

As far as sights go...that is something worth checking into. I have the three dot night sight system on my 22c and its ok. If you go with such a system, make sure you get rear night sights that are of a different color or shape as compared to front....sounds like common sense but for example, I have seen people sometimes struggle to put the three "green dots" in the correct order while shooting under little to no stress in low light or no light conditions

let me know if I can help you

I have a Paraordance .45, I shoot consistantly high and right, I would appreciate any suggestions. I do not have this issue with other handguns/calibers.

Thanks,

It is almost always low. I am getting used to the trigger but it is a work in progress.

Low and Low to the Right (if you are a right hand shooter) is a classic sign of flinching or anticipating the recoil of the weapon. I have struggled with this same problem for a long time.

A couple of things that might help ya. First, get your hands on some dummy rounds. You can buy them at most places that sell ammo. Get with a buddy and have him load your mags so you don't have a clue if the round in the chamber is live or inert. Then just shoot and you will see how much of a flinch you really have....it can be amazing to really see.

Some of the best LE shooters I have ever had the pleasure to work with were from my days on the RRV SWAT Team. We would often use this method in practice. It was truly amazing to see a great shooter pull the trigger on a dummy round. The gun never even twitched. I didn't even know they pulled the trigger...only realized they did pull the trigger because they had gone into the tap and rack mode of getting the gun hot again. Amazing!

Also, work on trigger reset. Meaning, once you pull the trigger, hold it back and don't let it go forward. Once you are ready, slowly let it go forward until you hear the click of the trigger reset. This will take all the slack or slop out of the trigger for the next round. I sometimes see students slapping the trigger on the Glocks because there is so much up-take. This tip really help me when I was struggling with this problem.

I tell you what Hitman, once spring rolls around.....we can hook up and I will take you up to the Moorhead Range and we can work on this issue. Who knows, maybe I am totally wrong and there is another cause for the low shooting.

Take care

I gotta be honest, I am lost for an answer. Seems odd that it only happens with this weapon? Is this the biggest caliber hand gun you shoot? Not seeing you shoot....I am taking a wild guess...but if its isolated to only this gun...could it be the sights or how you are making your sight alignment?

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.
