Volume of shots do not a sniper make. If you're not shooting well, you are likely learning bad habits. When I hit the range, I always bring a .22LR along. It lets me know if I have a problem, or I need to look into the load or gun performance to find the problem. If I'm not hitting anything with my MKI Target pistol, I go home.

The LCP is a decent shooter, if the shooter is a decent shot. But more than a few people find the little beast tough to handle for too many rounds. For some that might be a couple magazines, to others 50 rounds, or more.
Good stuff. I like the idea of calibrating your performance off the .22. I think I'm going to start doing that. On the other hand, no one ever went to the range with an LCP thinking it was sniper training I'd say I point shoot 90% of the time with my LCP (mostly one handed)

Also in response to some earlier posts, I'm really new to LCPs and have put about 1300 down range in the last 3 months. I enjoy shooting the little thing. I have several larger carry options but I can't deny I love the ease of carry with the LCP. (We have his / hers - mine a Custom, hers a Tiffany blue with stainless slide and laser) my wife is usually content with around 50 or fewer rounds per range trip. I like to shoot more and typically will shoot 2 or more of my 9mm pistols on the same trip.

Now I'm going to be throwing a .22 in the bag to gauge my performance when things aren't going as I hope while aim shooting (90% of my larger gun rounds).

My bad, had to look at the gun LCR 357. If you shoot a lot the cost difference in amo would buy a 9e. The LCP is a sweet carry gun if you don't care about recoil. I hope everyone has a nice day. BCOFMT.

Bought my LCP for fun at the range after my @#@#%% Beretta broke. Usually shoot 5-6 boxes per range trip, so far about 2000 rounds total. Haven't had any type of failure though it do get a bit warm after 5-6 quick mags.
