OK, so while I"m not necessarily a bad shot, I'm not a great shot either. I got back into guns just over a year ago (used to shoot as a kid with my uncle). Anyways, since then I remembered a lot of things, figured out a lot of things on my own and in process also I figured that I picked some bad habits as well.
Anyways, I have taken some classes in the past from Greg Block @ Firearms Training
and I figured that since Basic Handgun is coming up I should probably consider taking it. Cost for the class was extremely reasonable (prices are on his website) and the class fit my schedule. It was broken up into Basic Handgun I and Basic Handgun II and I took both of them. During the course of the class I got better and I confirmed one of my bad habits: I have issues with smooth trigger pull (ok, gotta dig out my snap caps again). Also during the class I had a chance to practice double tap and tripple tap drills. I was pleasanty surprised to see that even with double taps or tripple taps I still was capable of hitting the silhouette. Towards the end of it I was for the most part even capable of hitting a 3"x5" card with double taps (ok, first shot usually hit the card or close to it second shot every so often the card, but mostly close to it). Easy you say? I say nay nay
The 3x5 inch cards were numbered and they was 4 of them. The way drill went was that you had your firearm pointed at a belt buckle area and then when a number was called out you'd bring the gun up and aim and double tap at the 3x5" card with that number.
Overall I have went through 450 rounds in that class, had fun, and learn some new things. My trigger control got better a bit, I gained some confidence in regards to double taps and I have identified things I need to work on.
Now I"m trying to see where on the schedule can I fit the rest of the classes Greg has to offer.
Many Thanks to Greg, Julie and two assistant instructors: Chuck and Bruce.
