Good shooting brother. :text-bravo:
It seems you shoot better with shadow. May be you need more practice with kadet. I would suggest you shoot few groups with kadet from the rest with the purpose of eliminating shooters error and seeing actual performance of the gun. Dow you feel comfortable with kadet's trigger?
Regards

thanks for the advice kbw,
shall try from a rest next time. yes, kadet's trigger seems fine to me... i cant figure out what i am doing wrong here?
after the kadet session, i put in 25 rounds of .45 thru the dan wesson at 15 yds and got 3 10s 14 9's the rest were scattered. had taken down the target to bring with me and show off :) but forgot it there.
i would be very unhappy if it turned out that the error is NOT in me but the gun. i cant replace the gun :(

going from the kadet to the dan wesson i realized the difference in recoil between the 22 n the 45... huge !
one doesnt feel it that much moving from a 9mm.

Reprobate bro
It unfortunately is usually the shooter than the gun! A bit of practice and individual groups marked separately will help removing or determining the errors.
The dan wesson must be fun! Specially after the .22

Saif Sahib,

I would say fortunately if it is my fault :)

I DONT want it to be the gun's fault, I really like it very very very much. I shall keep trying to get it right on this.

YES .... the dan wesson did help in repairing my bruised ego. I hadnt been using it much lately and it came out of the safe after months.

just a note, the checkering on it, i noticed yesterday, is very aggressive and hurts a bit after a few rounds. though i have fired 100-150 per session before.... maybe it felt more after using the non kicking, smooth feel of the 22.

by the way one brass casing got stuck at ejection .... it was out of the barrel but wasnt thrown clear.

The last time I saw that on a 1911, it was a broken extractor claw. I hope that is not the case here. Was this round fired without a mag inserted? Did you fire more rounds after this?

I have heard not so good things about the DW checkering. It must've been alleviated after using the .22. But it is very aggressive.

no, it wasnt fired without a mag.
yes, no mishaps after this one. this happened in the first mag load.
aesthetically the checkering is nice and, using the original grips, i doubt that one's grip will move even if your hands were sweaty/slippery but it IS aggressive. maybe if one uses it regularly you would get used to it.
it is a great pistol overall. you would love it as soon as you pick it up.

A one off case could be due to many factors, but you must keep an eye on it. Mark the mag, and note the round position in the mag.

The checkering is way to aggressive to my liking.

Nice shooting. Does Shadow and kadet have the same frame and grip? I really like Shadow balance. Is the weight also same?

@reprobate , I say good shooting because its much better than what I used to do when I started shooting. You can easily kill a BG at 25 M, and that's what matters.

Thats some pretty good shooting on the circles repo. I remember when i did a similar excercise with HMR, i was barely able to hit the circles from 25 mtrs. What was the distance on the circles?

Good luck brother and nice shooting. Please do keep in mind that improvement in shooting takes time. Initial learning is quite quick but from there on, it will be a slow process generally, depending how much time and concentration you give it.
