So... You think Glocks are accurate?

    Nope... but mine seems to be!

    I finally got my Insight M6 rail-mounted combo light dialed in for my Glock 17. It's easy to install, and comforting to have the relatively bright flashlight as well as the laser.



    But how does it shoot? This (for me) is unreal...


    Shot standing at 7 yards, with a two-hand hold, at my local indoor range. The grouping was made shooting 15 rounds of one of my favorite handloads, consisting of Hornady 124gr FMJ-Encapsulated bullets over 6.3gr of VV 3N37 in Fiocchi cases, ignited by CCI 500 SP primers, and loaded to a COL of 1.160". I haven't had a chance to chrono this load out of the Glock yet, but I'm assuming around 1175 fps for now. My Beretta 92FS shoots it at 1155 fps, but the Glock seems to be a little faster with everything.

    This kind of performance is why I've got a S&W M&P and a Beretta 92FS going up for sale soon... YMMV.

    I was shooting 100 yards to my 8 inch plate (supported) with my glock 35

    Try that sometimes, the gun can do it.

    Can you?

    I did hit it once in 3 or 4

    Good steady hand!

    I was going to post one of my targets but I seem to have misplaced it. :)

    Most pistols are that accurate. Looks like you can manhandle that 17 though.

    6 rounds @ 10 yards. 44 mag 240gr hard-cast over Unique.

    There's always that one flyer :banghead:

    I'd guess nearly any Glock model would shoot 7 yards like that in the hands of a good shooter.

    i think just about any gun in good condition would shoot like that at 7yds if the shooter was up to it. you're clearly a damn good shot.

    :cool:The only way to consistently hit a pie plate at a hundred yards with a Glock or any other 5" barrel is with optics or on accident sounds like fish story to me.

    It's not...just believing it can be done and being able to manage the trigger well enough when your shot breaks.

    I didn't used to believe you could split a playing card edgewise from 5-7 yards either...until we had a whole class do it

    I've seen a lot of pie plates hit at 100 yards with open sighted 6" revolvers shot off a rest.

    Hand resting on the hood of the car.

    8 inch plate 80 yards I hit with the p2000sk 9mm and the bersa .380

    There is a user here that was there to see it, and he also made the same shot.

    A very faint "ping!" but we heard it.

    Well guys I guess I'm hardheaded and I will concede that givin enough shots fired you will hit whatever your calling your target but I used the word consistently . This just seems to be more a matter of luck to me . But in the same breath I guess we've all seen that fellow that shoots aspirin with a bow and arrow so I'm sure that there are a few people with that kinda eyesight and instinct that can do it so kudos to you and excuse me.:D

    3 out 5 at least

    that is pretty consistent

    Again ... I have a witness that I have made that shot even with 3 inch barreled guns.

    Not that hard.

    Sideways ... what was the last time you had any time to go out (not a range) and have all the time in the world to make your shot and hear the ping and see the ricochet?

    Because that is what it takes.

    I have also shot a similar target at 225 yards with a 4 inch gp100 ... took me five shots to hit it but i did.

    Maybe 3 or 4 people at the range that day.

    I gather you're not familiar with Handgun Metallic Silhouette...and I'm not talking about the fancy single shot guns. I'm referring to the Production Division

    Nonsense.:rolleyes: I can hit a 6" gong at 100 yards 100% of the time with my Ruger MKII 22lr. I can do the same with my 6" Dan Wesson .44 magnum revolver. Well I could when I was shooting every day.:uhoh: Probably be 95% now that I don't shoot as often.:neener: I've never tried it but I expect with a little practice I could come close to 80% hits with my Glock G30.:eek:

    I am totally embarrassed setting up and shooting at less than 25 yards, but it looks like that is what todays shooters want to do.
    20 feet! Good grief.:banghead:

    Wow. I am very impressed OP. I need to get to the range and work on my aim. I thought my three inch groupings were good enough.

    Sorry to jack your post OP. Nice shooting In my opinion.

    My stock G17 can print 2"-3" groups at 25 yards from a sand bag rest. Not quite match grade, but better than most expect from them.

    My G34 has printed a 1.5" group from a 25 yard bench with handloaded Hornady 124gr XTP bullets.

    It can be done, reloading helps.

    This supports the old addage that most guns are far more accurate than most shooters. This is especially true in my case. Nice shooting.
