    yeah recoil anticipation sucks :mad:
    I dry fire here and there, I seem to shoot better faster, when I stop and concentrate they are all over the place, if I just let them rip I get decent little groups. The targets are 8" circles on 8.5x11 computer paper (so they might be life size pics on the screen :thinking: )

    Actualy on my 19" LCD they are almost 10" circles :p:

    yeah I'll get better quickly. Remember this is only like the 4-5th time I'm shot my compact. I have much better groups with my fullsize 9 :cool:

    Do you measure groups from the outside edge or the center of the farthest apart holes

    Standard is to measure between the centers of the two holes that are farthest apart. Otherwise, you would never shoot a group that is smaller than the caliber of the bullet you are shooting. I realize this is not practical with those who punch holes with their defensive sidearms, but benchrest shooters, who do everything they can to make every round go through the same hole strive for the 0" groups. If you were shooting a .45 ACP and shot every round through the same hole (hypothetically) and you measured your group from outside edge to outside edge, you would get a group size of .452", where in reality the spread would be in the hundredths to thousandths of an inch. Always measure from center to center. The easiest way to do this is just like how we measure our lug patterns, from the edge of one hole to the same edge of the hole farthest from it. So, RJ, you can subtract approx .355 from your measured group size. Happy shootin'!

    Here's a target I shot @ 30 yds with my S&W 29, 8 3/8" barrel, 6 shots, .44 mag, 240g JHP. I was standing, using a 2 handed grip.

    of all the "groups" I've seen in gun magazines, it was measured from outside, like you said about the tight groups, that's why I figured the answer was that.

    nice. open sights or scoped?

    Open. That's the best 6 shot group I've ever shot.

    That's some great shooting

    I could never really get tight groups with my .44

    I shot bowling pins with it mostly

    I am pretty sure than when measuring groups for score or record in competition and accuracy test, the proper way to do it is to measure the extreme spread, outside to outside, and then subtract the diameter of the bullet.
