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

cliffy,

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

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?

I was really hoping you were going to say that. I would really like the help.

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser
