Accuracy issue

Can the sites be adjusted? I am all over the place with my Bel Air 9. I shoot a P238, Glock 19, AR-15 shoot tight groups in all. Iím not a super accurate but Iím no slouch either. Iíve had it jam and stove pipe. Any suggestions?

Ok

I will try that. I gave up practicing with it. It frustrated me to no end. What about the stove piping and ftb?

Am I being too hard on this guy?

No, no, no Tom, that's not how we roll around here. We don't tell members to search and read thru old posts. If you don't have time to give your advise please refrain from berating the new member.

I know you didn't read (HER) introduction post or you would have known RST is a lady shooter.

RST, could be a ammo issue, or a magazine problem. We have found the Micro 380's and Micro 9's usually need extra lube, more than you would think, wet even. I like 147gr when it can be found or at least 124gr 9mm ammo for break-in.

Tom you owe RST an apology IMO. If on my 2nd or 3rd post and you had told me that, I would have told you to kiss my ASS and deleted my membership, people are looking for help not abuse. Am I being to hard on Tom? Who do you think you are with 40 posts here.

OK, got it. I believe that forums are a great resource. I always search before I ask for help. I think that is a courteous thing to do. If you think I have not been a member long enough to say that, I am sorry. Nevertheless, new members should know the search bar is a great tool. I hope I did not offend you, RST.

No member told you to use the "search bar" when you asked about "Oil On Sear?" Just because you search before asking for help does not mean everyone should, especially a brand new member. I thought you might have learned something during your short time that you've been here and I mean learned that's not telling someone to search. Knowing the search bar and being told to use it on your 2nd post as a new member is wrong. I'm "saying" not just thinking (you should search for something) should not be said even if a member has 50,000 posts.
Also Tom, that's not a very good apology! You turned it around on the OP trying to make it her fault. Instead of owning it.

Keep the mags loaded up when not in use. Those springs can be a little stiff being brand new. That took care of my problem with not fully going into battery. Extra lube as stated on a new gun will help with the function during the breakin period also.

I have a Sig P938 not a Micro 9 but I have to use a very firm grip to keep my accuracy with this little gun. As far as your other issues I think 2sharp2 answered them.
