Glock 22 help!!!

Ok, this might be a long story, but ill try to keep it short. I am having to qualify tomorrow with a Glock 22 and the police range. In the academy I used a Springfield xd 45. I shot a 99% and 96% with it. I have put 200+ rounds in the glock and i cant seem to get it right. What i mean, it seems to jump around and is jerky. I dont get it. I ordered a plunger, 3.5 trigger, titanium rod with new spring, but its not going to be in untill friday. a day late right? am i missing something. I dont think it me. im pretty sure it the gun. the sights are a little different than the springfield. the rear sight is the white " U " shape. not the 2 dots thats usual. Is there a trick? im just not thinking its going to be a good day tomorrow......

Dumb Question - loose sight?

Dumb Question for you since I just got really ticked off at a new pistol that would not print worth a darn... (not a glock though) --- are your sights nice and tight? Mine had dovetail sights (standard flip up and tighten the setscrews after sliding into the dovetail) I did not notice the play in the sight until it loosened up even more after several dozen rounds and I noticed it was sitting a little more to one side than before I pulled the trigger, it was just barely movable by fingers alone - just a thought, gotta run...

most people have a hard time adjusting to a new gun, especially when its a different style of sights, I had a buddy actually take his 23 to the place of purchase because he thought something was wrong with his sights, it was just him, he changed the trigger to a 3.5 and loves it, it just took some time to get used to. good luck

I'm not sure what you're shooting style is, but I shoot high 90's consistantly with a 22, 23, or 35 by not pulling the trigger. I am sure you have heard the phrase "squeeze the trigger", and by focusing on the front sight and squeezing the trigger, you will be able to qualify without a problem. That means you will be suprised when the weapon fires, but by keeping the front sight on target you will be amazed by your accuracy. Also, if you psych yourself out, you won't be able to hit sh**. Just relax and do the best you can. Your agency should only record a "pass or fail", so it does not matter if your score a 99.9 or 80.0

PM me if you need any further assistance.
