I shot in a pistol match last Thursday, and got beaten up pretty badly.

Today I went back out to the range to sight in my gun, a Springfield Armory loaded 1911 9mm.

This was my first target. My point of aim was at the 6 o'clock position on the black ring.

Then I adjusted the rear sight all the way to the left, no change.

My friend Kirby (who's a gunsmith said, let me take a look at it)

This may be the problem.

Oh, and the reason the my 9mm gun wouldn't go into battery a few times, was there were a few 38 super rounds mixed in with my 9mm ammo (they're longer).

I'm not quite the gun fighter I thought I was :)

seems like you could have put this in your other target shooting thread.

Did you buy it new or was this a gun you had awhile?

I'd be pissed if it fell off like that if I shelled out bucks for it new.

...if he would look at the front sight more often he might shoot better either way...

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds;

who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,

so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

LOL you eat for a living and don't tip, how does any of that relate to your 'struggle'?

Spoken like a good loser.

If you can't win, cheat.
If you get caught cheating, lie.
If you get caught lying, quit.
