Just bought a used HP J9mm and am new to shooting. Any suggestions for improving my shooting? Any and all suggestions welcome. Thanks!
All great suggestions. You may also look into a basic handgun safety course.Where in Illinois?
As for getting better:
It's like I tell martial arts students, fight someone better than you.
As for shooting, find someone at the range who is a fast, dead shot and ask them to teach you. Buy him or her some ammo (always works in this economy)
You won't be surprised that the range master is usually by and far the best shot. Thats why they stick around all the time, they love the sport from top to bottom.
First is ask every question on safety.
Then ask how to hold the piece and how to aim and breath with every shot.
After that its practice and more practice.
AGI has some videos I reccomend to everyone, you can find them online.
