That's only the foruth time you've shot a gun?? If so, honestly that really isn't bad at all! Almost every time I go to the local range here, I would say 80-90% of the people there always have shots that look like they are using buckshot (think twice as wide as your group ) What kind of gun are you using? Just a quick tip I learned not too long ago. One thing you can do to improve your trigger pull is to do what is called "surprising your trigger finger". Basically, just ease on the trigger to take up the slack/pre-travel until you reach the point where it gets very firm (the breaking point). Then, just hold it at the break point, focus on your front sight (don't focus your mind on the trigger) and just slowly start increasing the pressure on your trigger finger and at some point the gun will just go off. This will help prevent you from shooting without a flinch or yanking the trigger inadvertently. Even if a lot of other things like your grip method are maybe not as stable as they could be, as long as you have the sights properly aligned, focus on the front sight, and just ease the trigger backward then 9 times out of 10 the bullet will go exactly where the front sight was pointed when the shot breaks. One other thing you can add to this drill is to not let all the way off the trigger after you've fired. Some people have a real problem with yanking the trigger because after the shots breaks they will let the trigger all the way out and their finger will come off the trigger. So basically how you would do this is as soon as you've broken the shot, ease your finger slowly forward until you hear/feel the click of the sear resetting. Once you reach this point and it "clicks", stop and hold the trigger at that point and you will be at the sear break point already so all of the slack/pre-travel will already be taken out of the trigger. By doing this, your trigger finger will be moving substantially less like a few millimeters of travel as opposed to possibly ~1/2-1.0" if pulling the trigger from it's fully released point. Here's a vid showing the reset thing, though it's not the greatest vid: Link Here's another excellent video describing about the most stable grip method out there (thumbs forward): Link Gopher, I'm not really hung up on the one hole thing. The way I heard it described by someone much more knowledgeable than myself is that as long as you can maintain groupings about the size of your fist, you are good to go. Right now that's about the size my groupings usually are, so I'm trying to focus on follow through and improving the speed of my follow up shots.
