    While I've been shooting as long as I can remember, I had a chance last weekend to do a bit of shooting at my uncles private pistol range he has set up on his farm. Every other range has been controlled so that draw and shoot is not allowed. Being fairly new to concealed carry, I wanted to practice as I carry. This was my opportunity! What I found is if I draw and shoot as fast as I bring the gun up, I am dead on. Really, really neato to me! But my aimed shots are high & left about 4-5 inches at 20 feet. Are there any technics or drills I can use to put all my bullets in the same general space? Or is it just that I need to burn more ammo more often?

    I'm down south of Houston. The CQB place looks good. Wish there was something like that close to here. (There might be and I haven't discovered it yet.)

    There's Rifles Only in Kingsville, but they don't do pistols (or windows).:D

    Dry fire! A lot! Paste a target on the wall. Draw and get on target. Repeat. Close your eyes and draw. See where you are pointing. Repeat. Adjust your stance, etc, so that you are pointing where you want to be when you draw. Find a local IDPA chapter, and go shoot. Many ranges that do not allow drawing will allow drawing during competitions. Good luck.

    Stay safe.
