I am having trouble with gun control. Past 50 yards my groups all want to go to the right of my point of aim. I have tried putting less of my finger on the trigger and that has helped some but I still start grouping my shots to the right at anything over 50 yards.

I'm shooting a Ruger GP 100 in .357 mag with a 6 inch barrel. Would having a gunsmith lighten the trigger pull help or should I try something else?

Any advice would be appreciated.

It's not like you can go to kmart and get a hand gun, you have to seek a permit, if you qualify you get your gun, if you have a record like beating your wife you don't, those are the controls we need to keep. If I want a gun to protect my family then I want a gun, it's our right as americans. I do think some kind of mandatory gun handling class should be required with the permit, I mean you have to show the drivers license department you are capable of handling a car before they give you a permit, the same should be done with guns. It's not the fact that guns are in homes that scare me, it's the owners who don't know how to use it that do.

if they take guns away from the law law abiding citizens what is stopping the non law abiding citizens from getting their hands on them and killing us with no way to defend our self's?

People have died protecting our rights. With a lick of a pen the President thinks he can do as he wishes. Sounds a lot like what Hitler did. It's not going to happen here.
