Looking for your shots on the target is another sign that you aren't solid on your fundamentals. Looking for your shots on the target is usually associated with a poor follow through. Poor follow through is often indicated by pulling your shots low (sound familiar?).
Get thee to a instructor who will work on your fundamentals.
Not sure where I said I was doing slow fire with the Glock. When we train, we are generally doing point shooting and fast paced shooting. 2-3" groups at 5 yards doing that may not be excellent, but it's good and will definitely hit a bad guys vital areas.
Maybe there is a misunderstanding... My eyes stay on the sights through the entire drill. However, after the drill is over everyone is obviously going to look at their target to see where they hit and what they need to work on. We go through 3-4 mags before the drill is over. But I'm not peeking at where I hit the target at any time until I'm done with the drill.
I have taken many fundamental classes. I actually retake them once a year along with the conceal carry and tactical classes. My instructor isn't the problem. If the class isn't a fundamentals class, they aren't going to teach fundamentals. Again, I feel like I shoot fine with the glock. I can move a shoot at 3, 5 and 7 yards and get fist sized groups. No issue... Bring the kahr into play and I have issues...
