this was my first time out shooting actual targets to test my accuracy, this was from 20-25 feet away, left is p7m8, right is my usp .45. how do you guys think i did? i counted the holes, seems like there were a few misses each maybe. i did alot better with my colt trooper .357. anyways i was just curious what my hk buddies would think

More practice will definitely tighten up your groups. You have a good starting point and some good tips above. Aim small, hit small!

Stop looking at the target. The second I saw the low vertical track, I could see that you are trying to watch the rounds impact. Being you can't, you develop a pre ignition flinch. It is typical that you are shooting good, and then start to try to see where the rounds are going. This is a mental game. Wait till you are done with a string of fire to check your work. Eventually, you will be able to check your work through your sights with good follow through.

At that distance, shooting slowly and deliberately, you can easily advance to shooting reliable 3-inch 5-shot groups with a bit of practice. In time, 2-inch and better.

Not bad, you will get better with practice as everyone is stating. Remember, breathe, exhale half way, hold your breath, take aim and trigger finger smoothly pull back. Let the pistol do the rest. Golden rules. Keep it up and you will have no issues with any pistol. Specially the P7. That group will be tighter than an ants ass.

The targets look about the same, which is interesting considering the differences in triggers. Get some professional training that discusses things like grip, stance, trigger squeeze, etc. and those groups will shrink to the size of baseballs.
