You can certainly learn on your own. Good formal instruction will help you identify either unsafe handling or fundamental shooting issues.

Like many here I too went through an evolution of instruction.

I consistently encourage instruction from persons well grounded with competition based backgrounds.

Always be a student. Always seek out a better way to self improvement.

Congratulations, you are solidly on the path now. Just by asking questions. Most firearm owners already think they know enough.
Thanks for the encouragement Matt. I'm the obsessive type, so my wife has labeled me. Everything I do, I strive to do it from a place of knowledge and skill. I don't ever do anything halfcocked or half assed.

I've already taken a basic handgun course. That was before I bought my 1st pistol. Since then, I have continued my training by purchasing a few books and hitting the range twice a week.

I don't do mag dumps at the range. I try to use my time at the range methodically. I work on different fundamentals each time. I also do dry fire drills almost daily. I follow Stoegers dry fire book for that.

I plan on taking an advanced handgun course next month as I need more direction on how to take my training to the next level. Have some travel for the next few weeks or i would do it sooner.

Until then, I am going to work on the Sri torture drill you suggested.

Could I simulate a draw by starting with the pistol in hand at rest on my right side?
go from low ready then or picking it up off the shelf in front of you.

Gonna just that.

I should not be doing this as a timed drill at first, correct?

Hi. Iím in exactly the same boat. Good groups under 10 yards. They open up after ten yards. I THINK the problem is that hard focus on the front sight means the target to me at least gets very blurry and I canít see clearly where the target is because of the hard focus. I still maintain the hard focus but it means you canít really be certain what part of the target youíre hitting.

The reality is I need to pay for a good coach I think at this point.

correct, this is not timed. simply an accuracy based drill. can you get all the shots in the dots at 3 yards following the prescribed method of doing so for each dot.

Default White Wall Drill

I like the white wall drill. It is simply pulling the trigger with front site focus on a white wall. Nothing to aim at. Your only focus is what that front site does as you pull the trigger. I fixed a horrible accuracy problem when I went from a 1911 to a CZ (1911 trigger can hide a multitude of sins) within a couple of days by doing nothing but the white wall drill.
The white wall drill was TERRIBLE for me. The neighbors called the police. Said bullets kept whizzing through their home. Who came up with this?
