    My groups have tightened up when shooting my HK USP9C. :confused:
    Maybe it's recoil that I'm less subconsciously afraid of or fighting. :scrutiny:

    Anyone else experienced this?

    My handgun shooting improved noticabley after I had put a couple hundrad rounds through my Desert Eagle .50

    After shooting a handgun that loaded weighs as much as an unloaded M4 and spouts 3 feet of flame my tendency to flich shooting my .40 Glock, my .357 Revolver, and .40 USP C seemed to just disapear :D

    BUT I had to get to the level where I could handle the .50 without flinching or being afraid of it before I realized those benefits. Now instead of noticing the blast from my other handguns I notice things like my grip shifting between shots, trigger finger position, and other details that were lost to me before worrying about the comming noise, flash, and movement.

    I'll even shoot the .50 one handed now on occasion. Although that makes my palm sore after a few shots. Haven't shot it off-hand yet. Maybe next time I'm at the range :evil:

    Interesting.. This makes me think of a training technique that I read about here: http://www.kuci.uci.edu/~dany/firearms/all_drills.html#drills in the 'correcting blinking' paragraph..

    This little trick has noticably improved my shooting.. It just made me more comfortable with what is going to happen when it goes 'boom'..

    It sounds like your experiences with the larger calibers have accomplished basically the same thing.. :cool:

    stay safe!!

    Muscle Conditioning.

    Kind of like a baseball player practicing with a heavier bat or a boxer sparring with heavier gloves.

    Interesting concept. I've noticed that after shooting .357 a couple times in a row, I was shooting .45ACP a lot better.

    I guess it's time to buy that .44 Magnum so I can get good with the .357. Then later I can justify a .454 so I can get good with the .44 and a .50S&W so I can get good with the .454

    I can see how this can spiral out of control! :D
