You might be relaxing your grip as you press the trigger.

It is fairly common gospel that 22 target pistols do not need bore cleaning. My experience in the 70s was cleaning my HS 106 STr bullseye gun and it would take about 20 shots to settle back into 50 yard accuracy. Today i seldom clean the 22 pistol bores. Chamber, breech, mags, and lockwork does need...

I do a little 10m AP. There are no AP competitions near. I shoot for personal. I also like to shoot it outdoors at 25yds for irons practice.

Perhaps you should not worry where your shots go. Better to concern over how they went. In other words watch sights and call your shots at the gun. Once you recognize good shots in the sights, you adjust them as needed.
Grip changes may be in order, but look for the improvement at the sight

208s with CMM 45 type grip.
Very favorite too is Bob Marvel/Advantage Arms conversion. The Toyota made lower makes a big difference.

45 wad gun made by Toyota. Ultradots all around.

Ditto Toyota for HB

From my Blankenship files to add to the "natural" of sight alignment... "...Perfect sight alignment is necessary to get good scores, and having a natural alignment of the arm, hand and gun to the eye will keep the sights perfectly aligned." Then, move your feet to orient the aligned sights on the ai...

There are various small adjustment ranges in head chest shoulder grip cant etc to align the sights on the seeing line. So forget the target until you can see the sights on your seeing line. Then going to the target is just a matter of foot movement. Your foot position can change a bit during a match...

Hardball takes 4 mags for a given gun to the match. There are 6 more 208s mags on the shelf, 25 for original HS, 8 total for BM/AA conversion, 4-5 for 41, 8 for MKII, AND A BUNCH of metalform 45acp. Be prepared.

I'm going to have to go with the Bob Marvel/Advantage Arms conversion on a dedicated lower. My lower is a Les Baer built up by Toyota. Hammerli 208s is a close second. Then I think a good MkII also fixed up by Toyota, or a good HS or 41

Guys and gals, dig this http://www.brianzins.com/category/fundamentals/ Brian in the past has said that looking at the target has to have a pretty steady dot in the first place. If the wobble is just too big, you ought to stay looking at the dot, and work on hold. The unsaid thing about looking at t...

Nothing wrong with a little cant. As long as it is consistent and naturally helps align and position the sights on the seeing line. Never force the position away from natural, sights aligned on the seeing line.

My 41 was supposed to have been gunsmithed at Ft Benning. That is only the word I have. The trigger is indeed one of the best ever. But I remain skeptical about it as the mag disconnect was defeated, and the barrel (1977ish 5.5") was a keyholer. Also the cocking indicator piece was removed. I got it...

I got a set of Hortons for a 106 HS. Beautiful like the 41 set above, but the fit of a Fung revolver grip I have is is much better. I have purchased and used several grips on target 22s, and CF revolvers. Best fit = Fung on K38 and N45 second best = Rink of 208s third = Nil 4th = Horton 5th = Morini...

Jack I have seen the splatter in the dust too. Notice that the plate/dingers usually are suspended from a hook affair on the backside to let the plate give a little on the impact. Some of the target plate makers have really scienced it out to determine best alloy and even the angle of departure for ...
