    Find the load that matches up with the sights if you are doing everything right. Fix your form if doing it wrong. Revolvers require different form of grip due to cylinder gap. Make sure your form is proper first.

        Agreed.

        OP, Start training with mousefart tier .38's and work your way up. When you shoot, close your eyes and randomly load your cylinder with a mix of live rounds and empty brass (or snap caps). Now go shoot; this will reveal and help train away any flinching or anticipating recoil. When you get to shooting magnums you can randomly mix magnums, 38's, and empties.

    2-inch are pretty terrible to shoot. With a 3-inch you can apply yourself and get some good accuracy but 2-inch seems to be just too small for any acceptable results (that's what she said)

    You could have a fucked up grip that is throwing you off. People used to semi auto handguns frequently grip revolvers way too low.
    Adjust your grip, use .38 Special target loads until you have better results, then start working up to magnum stuff.

    Use or approximate a benchrest and/or boresight to figure out which way the bullets want to go.
    Adjust sights as needed- be careful if you have milled sights, you can file metal off but it's hard to put it back.
    Then do what the other gay says and try a bunch of different loads to see what works best

    That's probably because you take long to pull trigger and the front of the gun dives. Try shoot single action mode and faster.

    Load it with 38 special and fire it in single action until you get the hang of it. A double action revolver handles a lot different than a semiauto.

    Where did you send the very first round you shot with that revolver, OP? Was it in the very center?

    If it is a Taurus 605, they just be like that sometimes. Mine wouldn't stabilize .38, only liked full house 158gr magnums

    Not OP. However, I am also a new shooter. I have only ever shot revolvers and never a semi-auto. I own a 3 inch barrel .357, a 4 inch .357 and a 5 inch .357

    In terms of barrel lengths, how do they impact how you aim or shoot them if any? I have okay time with the 4 inch but I have trouble with my trigger pull I think. I am confused on what proper trigger pull is supposed to feel like with a revolver. So when pulling the trigger, you don't want to pull it slow and do that "staging the trigger" thing right? You want one fluid motion?

      Longer barrel = better sight radius = generally easier to line up sughts/realize you're out of alignment. Other than that it's just balance.

      >You want one fluid motion?
      If shooting DA, yes. Paul Harrel has an example where he says pulling the trigger on a DA revolver should take about as long as it takes for you to say the word 'shaboom' which is actually pretty decent advice. You do not want to yank the trigger.
      The good news is that practicing trigger pull is something that's pretty easy to do at home. Balance a quarter on your front sight post and practice pulling the trigger until you can pull the trigger in one movement without dropping the coin.

    wadcutters when you're at the range and finger fucking the trigger when not at the range. practice pulling the trigger often and pay attention to the sights when you do it. any sort of movement during the pull is going to throw the projectile off course by a fair bit.
