Ever have a pistol you love but just cannot shoot? There's some guns that just don't work for me and I hate to get rid of any gun but it's just not fun to try and shoot accurately but do so poorly compared to the other guns in my stable. I really don't want to spend another $6-700 to make the pistol in question shoot as well for me as my Glock 34 or Kimbers.

It could be a matter of ergonomics that are wrong for you despite how much you like the looks or the mechanics of a particular gun.

Life is too short to deal with the hate and discontent of things that don't work.

If it doesn't work _for_you_ then it still doesn't work, no matter how many glowing reviews Guns and Blammo writes about one of their advertizers products.

I poured parts and test ammo into a Colt Combat Commander once upon a time. Best thing I ever did was dump it (along with the parts to fix it yet again) and not look back. I shot it fairly well when it worked.

The only other option was to keep spending money on it and watch my blood pressure go up.

There comes a time when ya got to say 'enough'.

Now if its a question of the way the piece fits _you_ then quit fighting it. You are how you are, and if we all could fit the same make/model there wouldn't be much point in having all the different choices, would there?

Another point (which happened to me) is that if you are able to adapt to this one piece, will it affect the way you shoot the others that do work for you?

Regards,

Pat

I think it's just the trigger because the gun feels great in my hand. Problem is that this gun (a BHP) has every affordable thing done to make the trigger acceptable yet my Glock 34 embarrasses it everytime I go to the range. I hope Mr Camp will forgive me!

Hi there LittleLebowski,

I have probably given up over 40 handguns that I opined that there was alway's something better out there. I would definately have to agree that in the end, its about ergonomics, accuracy, aesthetics and confidence.

For some reason, within the past year, I finally got around to shooting a HP and fell in love with it after years of Glocks, 1911's of every shape and size and I can't even begin to tell you how many revolvers I've owned.

Now, if I can only stick to practicing and shooting one pistol, I would be all set to go, but ya see here I need to tell you about Colt Series 70 I saw yesterday for only.......

Chris

I'd better go sacrifice a javelina to the BGP god (Mr Camp)


::sigh:: Ok, headed to the For Sale part of the forum. BHP Practical, Spegel grips, 2 sets of brand new night sights, mag disconnect removed, trigger job. Needs a loving home!

I think certain British roadsters are neat little cars but the chance of me squeezing my fat but behind the wheel and being able to comfortably drive one are slim indeed.

If the gun does not fit you, and you have confirmed that by adjusting your training to attempt to compensate for the problems, then get another gun.
