Morning at the range

Last weekend I discovered that I shoot better right handed than left handed.   That is weird because I am, in fact, left handed.   

This morning at the range I alternated hands each magazine and I still do slightly better at punching holes in paper with the right hand.   My theory is that I haven’t spent a lifetime developing bad muscle memory habits with my right hand.  

Here are the final two strings of the day.  (rounds 280-300)

Left handed at 7 yards:


And right handed at 7 yards:


Neither are bad, but the right handed one is noticeably tighter.   

Now I’m seriously considering getting a right handed holster and doing an IDPA match right handed.

    Nice shooting! I’d check the sights, as it appears they are slightly off. Either that, or you pushed every single shot left handed, which I doubt.

    I very well could have pushed each shot with the left hand. The right hand group is centered and I was using the same sight picture on both targets.

    Are you left or right eye dominate? Makes a big difference.
