Very nice shooting, but please don't take this the wrong way and i am only mention this since u said "first time" I would think u may have 1 or 2 issues since mainly hitting somewhat toward left this is usually caused by scope/sights needing a slight adjustment.

Or not enough finger on the trigger is known as “pushing” the trigger because it causes the trigger finger to push the trigger back and to the left as opposed to straight back, resulting in rounds impacting near the nine o’clock to ten o'clock position.

Just trying to be helpful since the ps-90 is extremely accurate out to 100+ yards, best wishes!

I appreciate the advice. That's why I joined this forum. I did notice that all of my shots were to the left of the target. I haven't added any optics yet, however. I was using the iron sights, which totally sucks in my opinion. Here's the deal: I'd really like to physically see a good array of optics before I buy one. But, every gun store I visit has a limited amount in stock. I appreciate the advice everyone gives, but what works for you - might not work for me. Eye relief and all that. Optics can be very expensive and I don't want to waste my money. I read you guy's posts where you say something rode too high - or not good eye relief - or whatever. So, I'm thinking an EoTech Mini Red Dot. Then I can look at magnification later. What are your thoughts?

LeAnn,

Try a low optics mount from TROS USA designed for the ps90 and try out if you can an Aimpoint H1. You will be happy with that option.

TROS USA
Oooh. I like that mount. I'll definitely check into this. And, my gun shop has several Aimpoints in stock, so I'll check them out.

Optics/mounts are not cheap! A mini-red dot with a 2moa and an ultra low mount seems to be the best choice, unless u want o get a Elite Ammo sight which uses an original optic, which seemed the best set-up for the gun even though all optics FNH ever put on these had issues.

But the old style sights have gotten very desired again which is why Elite will have an improved batt version but only in green!
Best Wishes!

Good shooting!
And yes, with more practice and better optics, your groups will tighten up significantly especially for ranges at 100+ yrds.

As VZ said, though, optics aren't cheap. You can very easily spend $350 for a decent mid-grade sight system.

But the whole point is: You're actually going out to the range and sending shots down range. You're actually practicing.

Very nice shooting for the "first time" or at any time for that matter. You can only improve with practice and practice and practice you should. Good job... :?

I have 30+ guns in my arsenal. I can't take them all every time I go to the range. But I'll be bringing both the PS90 and FN 5.7 every time. I always practice shooting my handguns one-handed (first the right hand - and then the left). I didn't think I could control the FN 5.7, but I actually did pretty good at 50 feet. Not so good at 75. So, I'll keep practicing. I consider both of my FN's the best purchase I've made. All of my other guns pale in comparison.

Well okay then, I'd say you're stocked up on firearms at least for the short term that is. Now you just need to whittle by means of replacing some of the non-FN's with FN's from the inventory.....might I suggest starting with a Ballista? You would be the envy of many both here and abroad to include but not limited to yours truly. BTW, you have local indoor ranges in excess of 150', 'round here all indoor's max out at 75'/25yds.

I had to google the Ballista and the first thing that popped up was an Ancient Missile Launcher. :mrgreen: Ok, I found it by typing FN Ballista. A .338 Lapua is definitely too much gun for me. I know my limits. I feel a lot more comfortable with a 270. I agree with you about whittling down some of the stuff I don't shoot. Besides, do I really need 8 shotguns? Or three Ruger 10/22's? And, yes, we have an indoor rifle range that is 150 feet. I also belong to a private gun club that is 360+ acres of fun. I've never shot competitively - I just like guns and I like to shoot them.

BTW it's encouraging for other women to see other women shoot! You did good too!

I need to get vid of my wife shooting the PS90 it's a great platform for the ladies. Some place in Las Vegas has a 90 to shoot and was self-proclaimed lady friendly.

Guys, fastest way to ruin a ladies day is put them behind a K98 or M1 garand. It's not cool my wife says.

Omgosh, that first pic was so dark no contrast I thought you had an optic...lol.

I was weighing in on a vortex viper PST variable optic to put on top. It's relatively inexpensive. At 25yrds those holes are hard to see without binos. You don't have to take my word for it, others on here will give ya pretty good advice too. GL
