Bushnell 10x 42 binoculars are currently on sale at Crappy Tire. $100 binos for $69.97.), spotting scope, etc. Even an old scope sight will do. Assuming you have such a thing.
    "...your grip might change from shot to shot..." Not with a properly set up spotting scope. Said scope gets mounted on your shooting box so you just move your head. More expensive though.
    I'm talking about grip on the gun, not the scope. I'm just recommending against putting down the gun after each shot, which I think would make it hard for anyone, especially someone new to shooting, so understand how large their groups are and where they're hitting, to help them adjust sights and identify potential areas to improve technique. Perhaps bulls-eye shooters check after each shot, I don't know, but that's different.
    If God didn't want holsters to be leather, he wouldn't have made so many damn cows.

    So many solutions! Some of them are so simple, I feel a little dumb not thinking of them myself. I have a little pair of Bushnell binoculars, so I'll try those first to see if that works. Cheaper solution = more $$ for the next gun, right? Good to know about grouping shots. I'll have to keep that in my brain and resist the urge to check all the time. Thanks for all the info!
    Adulting is hard. Just let me read books, drink tea, and learn to shoot.

    Google pictures for "pistol group analysis" for many examples of charts that will analyze and suggest remediation for your groupings.

    It was bound to go this route. Well played.

    I cut the side out of a cereal box and put a small black bull's-eye in the middle. I have no trouble seeing the holes. I also use the splatter targets and they work well.

    I have one of those cheap but it works. Only one problem it takes a month to get your stuff from this place but they're reliable

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2016...4-2eabb61392a9

    Bought tons of stuff from them didn't receive 1 item and had a refund
    I'll do what I have to do and deal with the consequences of my actions later
