I have put about 300 rds downrange, and my groups suck. At 15 yds they're larger than 12 inches. I went back to my .45, and shrunk my groups to 2 inches at 15 yds. Any suggestions or encouragement?

i have notice with some people when they first get a gun since they are used to the trigger pull ect that they tend to "jerk" the gun as they were firing causing poor groups

The Fiveseven is light so it will take a little to get use to.
Puting a tac light on the rail usually helps, the added weight helps to shrink your group size.

+1. Adding a TLR-1 to my Five-seveNs really helped.

A little weight would help, but I really don't want to rely on a light on the end of it. My goal is to begin carrying the pistol when my accuracy has improved. I think I'll continue to practice.

The weight helps me too. But practice certainly goes a long way.
Between range sessions I practiced drawing and dry-firing the pistol until it was second nature- this also really helped break in the trigger.

I should add that I have put 1700 rounds through it, but I'm still not very accurate with this pistol without the weight.- But accurate enough that I trust it as my carry piece.

I dont know if you can do this with the 5-7 but I have helped people with this issue with other guns. Balance a coin on the slide by or on top of the front sight/barrel end. Practice dry firing in a normally aimed manner and this will cure any flinching or jerk you have once you keep the coin balanced throughout the trigger squeeze.
