What I got out of your story: Keep your friends close and your ammo closer.Finally got to the range today with my PT111. Like I read shot low left (quite a bit, glad I had big paper). Happen to meet friends at the range. (great to have friends!) They suggested I was holding on too tight. I relaxed, still low left. Then they tried. Bam! Dead on! They said relax even more. I did. Bam! Dead on! I should have remembered this lesson from years ago shooting my Ruger Redhawk 44 Magnum the first time. I tried to hold it down on target. It bruised my hand so bad I couldn't shoot for 2 weeks! Let tools do the work. I am larger than "the average bear" and think muscling is the way to go. As I grow older I am slowly catching on. Moral of the story, relax, and hang with friends!
