A search didn't show anything so I'll try here.

Wife has a new P238 in .380, sometimes when she's shooting it, it will keyhole when it goes though the paper target at about 10 yards, maybe 30 out of 40 times.
I shoot the same gun, same ammo and distance, and I do not get the keyhole.

New one on us, any thoughts?
Grip loose?

I can not explain why it is happening with her and not you. I would try putting something like cardboard behind the target to stiffen it up and see if this continues to happen. I have heard bullets can leave the impression of a keyhole when it is actually not what is happening.

Like I stated, I don't understand why it would be based upon the shooter. Were both of you using the same target or at least same target paper?

I'll try having her grip the gun a bit tighter, she did mention she wasn't holding it right/tight enough.

Same target, same bullets, distance, she shot, then I shot.

I'll make sure she loads the bullets in the right direction too.. :)

Thanks all.

That doesn't sound right. Very odd. I doubt limp wristing would do that. Huh. Too bad you didn't have access to a very high speed camera to investigate with a slow mo video.
I haven't run into this yet so not sure what it could be, the guy who works at the range suggested grip also, we'll have her try a tighter grip next time out.

Thanks
