Accuracy of a handgun

What should I expect to get from a 9mm Beretta at 50 yards? On paper or some grouping?

Should get a 1.5 inch group at 50 yds.

you'll more than likely get a stove pipe put down the beretta and step away.

No Malfunctions yet...

Have not had a issue from this M9. Remember its cleaned every range day and is only used by me. When I was on active duty I carried a beaten dirty handgun that had been passed on every 12 months for a decade. Still liked it but had more malfunctions.

Demo, Beretta

If you get a 1.5 inch group at 50 yds from a Beretta, I'll be amazed. As for the stovepipe, I have fired tens of thousands of rounds through a Beretta 92 and the Taurus PT92 and have never, not once, had a stovepipe. I think ugly has been wearing his jackstand, track shoe and dry sweep ghillie suit in the sun too long.

Accuracy of an M9

I am hoping to get 5 of 10 in the 7 ring at 50. Still having trouble getting my Blackhawk in that tight. I am using winchester white box which can not help. I will try some federal +p shit on saturday

Shoot a lot

I shoot a least once a week. Shoot indoor on fridays and the out door range on Sundays.

Winchester isn't bad

I used winchester white box today, firing 100 rds after PT this morning and I much prefer it over the Blazer brass. Now that is some MOBarn stuff. I don't know if pistol barrels actually break in, but I am very impressed with my G34 right now. As soon as I get my RCBS powder dispenser and Montana Gold bullets, I'm going to load some stuff to match point of aim at 30 yards and be ready for competition.

I love my G34 too Runaway, it has eaten everything up I fed it except some reloads that a friend made and let me have. I think he seated them too far and they wouldn't feed. But everything factory it just runs through them.

I am in the 7 ring at 50 yards. Good enough for me. I will work on tightening it up next week. It was windy and I was compensating left. I think I can do better on a easy day
