Learning new shooting platforms

Post by Sheriff1962 on 9/1/2018, 7:54 pm

I am used to a full size , single stack 1911 more than any other platform . Trying to learn to shoot BE custom Beretta 92 , Sig X5 , S&W 952 .  No matter what , especially on 25 yards line timed and rapid fire , I ALWAYS do better with 1911 ( 9mm or .45 )  Any tips on learning to shot Beretta ? 952?  Frustrating...... Lol.

yea use the 1911 toss the rest. Really just need to adjust the gun to fit you and just dry fire it a million times or so.

I could never shoot those other pistols as well as the 1911. I attribute mostly to grip then the trigger is next.
Every pistol requires something a little different to shoot well.

There are so many after market options for a 1911 in the way of grip modifications today. Mainspring housing styles, shapes, and sizes, trigger lengths, trigger shoes, grip widths, and styles... you can really tailor a 1911 to fit a shooters hand quite nicely. And you can get them in just about what ever caliber you might want or need. Unless you’re collecting, I’d say stick with one platform. It may help you stay on top of your fundamentals with multiple guns if they’re all built relative to one another.

I am new to BE , but  shot PPC for years. It goes like this :  Sams Beretta , shoots GREAT off the bench at 50 yards with Atlanta 115JHP,  Model 952-2 shoots some great groups at 50 with 147HST or Atlanta Arms 115's. But when I pick up a pistol and actually start shooting it , a 1911 in 9mm or .45 is MUCH easier to hit with .
Also. Maybe its me ,  1911 in 45 is a little easier to hit with than 1911 in 9mm.

Last. At 50 yards when I can take 1 min per shot, I can get good scores with any pistol I mentioned. But at 25 yards when I have to shoot faster , 1911's is so much easier for me.
