went to a gravel pond with a friend(who has access/permission) to shoot sunday afternoon

150 rounds through the pt111 with only one issue, spent casing got stuck in the 'stovepipe'? I think my friend called it.

had a good time, besides that one issue she shot great, albeit low and slightly to the left of the sights.......

was shooting regular old 115 gr winchester and remington plinking ammo

Sounds like a great time was had. I do prefer outdoors shooting if it can be done to indoors.

This below is from another thread but has valid links that may prove of benefit.


People who to whom DAO or for that matter any type of handgun can shoot off center for any number of reasons.

Two suggestions usually made are for one to have a mentor to assist.Someone who is watching ,knowledgeable, and can give positive criticism or feedback is indespensible. This way bad habits are addressed right away before they develope or stopped right then and there.Makes one more proficient and confident in their abilitiies.

Second suggestion is in the links:

For the above link click on the" bullseye target" link that pops up. This should be on drummin man's post. One can make targets out of it.

Glad to hear about the improvement in POI and your shooting.Keep at it.

This stuff is also for others and yourself to consider.

Here's some stuff that might help for those getting used to DAO triggers and the sights.

I do have a PT111 Mil/pro and love shooting it.

thats alot to read through thanks!

I'll dig into it tomorrow night hopefully.


My friend with access to the space was trained at the Police Training Institute for basics and as an instructor so hes a great shooting partner, he gave me alot of tips and feedback and agreed that it was the gun that was a bit off and not just me :)

i may have been worse than him but its hard to tell when shooting at logs instead of targets.


it was the first rounds I ever put through that gun, and I havent put many through any other pistols before!

hopefully it comes down to alot of practice makes perfect


I do like the pt111


although, I shot a bereta 92 and an older hk 9mm as well and loved them

the reduced recoil on them was really nice but of course, they are much larger pistols
