    Had not shot in a couple of weeks, so I just had to get out and go PEW PEW.

    Went to Frontline. I had just bought a couple of Beretta 96 mags and wanted to check them for function in my Beretta, and also in a Sub 2K that takes Beretta mags. Shot about 150 rounds of .40. Flawless in both. At 25 yards, the Sub 2K is a LOT more accurate than the Beretta.

    I also took my 9mm AR carbine, since I had not shot that in a while. I only shot it at 25 yards, about 50 rounds, and had one hole groups with it.

    I've made it a habit to take my EDC out and put a few rounds through it each time I go to the range. That little Sig 938 is pretty accurate, I was doing head shots on a steel silhouette @ 15 yards. 6 o'clock hold, though, I have to set the top of the front sight on the neck to hit the head.

    It was a good day to be out making gun smoke.

    @BigWaylon
    Since you have so many of those, could you hang onto one for me? The more shot-up the better. I wanna put it out at the street. :)

    Took my AR10 and new GP100 to the range today. Did well with the GP, but my rifle skills weren't good. Still it was a fun day! IMG_20200309_150348.jpg IMG_20200309_150348.jpg IMG_20200309_150319.jpg

    Shot the rimfire challenge today with 3 22’s. Did pretty good with one gun. Not so good with the others:( TINY targets! I was still popping a 6” plate at 100 yds with all 3. That was fun. C7DECF99-CED0-441D-B0A2-0205EB2CF00C.jpeg

    Getting ready for the Glock match in Morgantown. 100 rnds. Of 40 S&W G 23 and 150 rnds 9mm G 17. After talking with Slappy McTrigger last week , i realized my grip was all wrong for timed shooting. So I'm trying the old dog new trick thing . Made some progress today but need to put many more bluetts down range. 20200309_163345_001.jpg

    I still have that one. But I can work another one over with the 410 if you’d prefer lots of holes. :D

    Took the new CZ to the range to see how it shoots. Put around 200 through it, and shot it beside my current P-07 edc to see if it could take the job. I’m not that great of a pistol shot, so still figuring out if this is me, or the sights being a bit low. Either way, I was very happy with the grouping I was getting.

    Got out early this morning. Tried out my new Kimber Raptor. I know Kimbers suck and they jam all the time but I wanted it. Shot good and didn’t jam but only put 200 rounds through it.

    My oldest and I went to Woody’s for some recoil therapy. Warmed up with the AA G17 .22 first, then shot the G17.5, G48 and my new P320 XCompact. I was amazed at how much of a soft shooter the XCompact was and how well it fit my hands.

    Then we broke out the AR pistol and my daughter really fell in love with it. Might have lost that one to her

    I am no longer shooting at the range. I am saving all ammo stocks so I can shoot covid - 19 when it arrives at my doorstep which should be any day now.

    I shot some 9mm, .45, and my first 10mm, which was a little much for me, but at least I tried it.

    There were some revolvers in there too, not sure of the names....but awesome.

    (This was at Battery Oaks, so I was extra happy! Thanks to Billy and RS for having me down ...again!)

    I have a love/hate relationship with the 1911 platform, primarily because I haven’t taken the time to get proficient with the platform, but the Kimber Raptor & Warrior series have always tripped my trigger and they are definitely part of my bucket list of guns I hope to own at some point!

    Nice to meet you too.
    I'm not sure if you'll be happy or sad to have shot them....a lot of us love them, but some have had problems! My "precious" was perfect that particular day....lol.
    Anyway, go get one or a few of them, and have fun!

    I did!
    It was sad because I have no idea if my range is closing or when I'll see my guys again.
    But I shot both 1911s, slowly, and did ok.

    a machine gun on a hilux. the boys at Top Gear would nod approvingly.
    How is the current plague affecting things over there? It looks like you keep a few hundred meters of safe space between yourselves and the natives (who are dropping left and right) while you guys drop them left and right...

    Staying vigilant, keeping social distance from most, no large groups, Mess Hall To Go plates only, gym closed ect. Iran and Astan share a border and they have a deadly count.

    Headed over to Woody's today before the county locks down. I was just about the only person there.

    [​IMG]

    Sighted in my MAS-45 .22 training rifle with a new scope. very accurate at 50 yds but the gusting wind made 100 yd shooting difficult with it.

    [​IMG]

    Had fun with the series 185 Mini-14 that those smarter than me say is junk and impossible to hit a barn from inside it. My eyes were watering so badly from the wind and pollen that I had trouble at 100 yds and could only keep it in the 9 ring. On other days it is a steady 10 ring shooter. I really like this peashooter even though I have more capable rifles on hand. This one just fits me perfectly.

    I did!
    For today, at least, my range is open.

    I shot about 100 rounds of 9mm today in my CZ. Lovely gun, very accurate, if I do my part! lol.

    I did well at 3 yards but things went badly at 5, so I'm staying at 3 for now, till I get used to the gun.

    I did paint the front sight red, as I always do, until I can get a fiber optic on there....
