G20, G22 shooting issues

11 posts in this topic

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

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

Cliffy

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?

      Hello everyone last year at he end of ice season I got a clam auger plate. The one you install in place of drill chuck. I didn't have time to use it last season. This past Christmas I got a Milwaukee fuel drill and it doesn't fit. The threads for the chuck are bigger then the adapter clam includes. Has anyone dealt with this issue?

      With ice as thick as 24-30 inches and long range forecast for freezing temps, ice fishing season through March in good shape. Roads have smoothed out from the warmer weather and now freezing again.  Some snow still remains on the lake. A very active bite continues with many good sized walleyes and saugers.  Working every fish with electronics is helpful.  Some walleyes are suspended. The anglers working a jigging line with jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/ early afternoon and 17-24 before nightfall.  Best colors glow pink/red or chartreuse.    The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been spotty at times. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. The river is open from Birchdale to the east. Only some shore ice remains and some reports say anglers have already started pushing boats over the ice.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition. On the Minnesota side,  walleyes are being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits.  In Ontario the crappie bite has been hot and cold as of last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will need to close many roads and trails temporarily in state forests, state parks, recreation areas and wildlife management areas due to wet conditions.  Some roads and trails have already been closed. Conditions are deteriorating rapidly, and many roads and trails are not firm enough to support vehicle traffic without being damaged. The temporary closures could remain in effect until sometime in May, depending on weather conditions. “These are normal spring closures that happen when roads and trails become wet and fragile,” said Dave Schuller, state land programs supervisor for the DNR’s Forestry Division. “We ask that people use good judgment, obey the closures and check the DNR website for updates.” Road and trail conditions can change quickly. The DNR advises people to check individual state park, state trail or state forest webpages before planning trips to avoid being surprised and disappointed by temporary closures. Road and trail users should pay particular attention to state forest closures. Generally, all roads and trails in a particular forest will be closed, but not always. Those that can handle motor vehicle traffic will remain open but may be restricted by gross vehicle weight. Signs will be posted at entry points and parking lots. Schuller noted that commercial loggers can continue to haul timber in the northern part of the state, which is not under Minnesota Department of Transportation spring load restrictions at this time. “In unrestricted parts of Minnesota we have asked loggers to voluntarily not haul during the warm parts of the day to protect forest roads,” he said, “and their compliance allows us to keep roads open longer.” Online road and trail closure information is updated Thursdays by 2 p.m. Changes are added as soon as possible to the DNR website. Signs may be in place before the website is updated. All signs must be obeyed. Road and trail closure information is also available by contacting the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367, 651-296-6157, (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday). For information on roads and trails on county land, contact the county directly. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Women can learn the fast-growing pursuit of bowfishing through classes taught by the Land of Lakes Bowfishing Association, as part of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  “Bowfishing is a sport that is fast, fun and easy for all to enjoy,” said Patrick Kirschbaum, a bowfishing association member. “It’s a great way to improve your archery skills.” Bowfishing involves seeing, shooting and retrieving fish using specialized archery equipment. People bowfishing in Minnesota can target fish like common carp, buffalo, redhorse, sucker and other species that aren’t considered game fish in Minnesota. The first informational session is 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, March 11, at Archery Country in Rogers. The class is free to attend but registration is required and attendance is limited to 30. After taking the first class, women can choose between one of two bowfishing trips: either Saturday, May 6, in the Mankato area; or Saturday, June 3, in the Alexandria area. The trip costs $50 to attend. To register for a class contact Linda Bylander, DNR outreach program coordinator, at linda.bylander@state.mn.us or 218-203-4347. The Becoming an Outdoors Woman program offers a wide range of outdoor skill classes in fishing, hunting and outdoor sports and more information is available on the BOW page. Printed copies of the annual events catalog are also available by calling the DNR Information Center at 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157. The regular bowfishing season opens statewide on Saturday, April 29. Bowfishing opens Monday, Feb. 27, only from boats on lakes south of Highway 210 and on the Minnesota, Mississippi and St. Croix rivers. Bowfishing regulations can be found in the Minnesota Fishing Regulations booklet and in the online version on the Fish Minnesota page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
