Gone Shooting

I went shooting again yesterday, maybe the last time for the year. I have two used pistols I bought last spring and needed to test shoot them. Back in April and May I bought another HK USP .45 and also a Kahr MK9 (9MM). I’m not sure I even want the Kahr but I got a good deal so it was hard to turn down.

Yesterday I was testing mostly for reliability and also a general sense of accuracy. All shooting was at 30 feet. The weather was a little cool and sunny, nearly perfect for shooting. I arrived at the range right when they opened and it was already half full.

My “new” USP functioned perfectly with 150 rounds of hollowpoint ammunition.  Accuracy seemed on par with my other one. I brought it along but only shot one magazine through it.

I fired 140 rounds through the Kahr, 40 hollowpoints and 100 round nose. There were no malfunctions. The Kahr is a very small pistol and it was difficult for me to shoot quickly, with any accuracy. Even with the extended magazine it’s hard for me to hold on to, with the flush fit mag nearly impossible. With the short mag I can only get two fingers on the grip. I will probably end up selling the Kahr, although I might shoot it again just to make sure.

Gone Shooting

I went shooting yesterday (sorry no new pics). I haven’t been in months and needed the practice. There are several guns that I need to shoot, but I only took one, my main “house” gun, my USP .45. I left the light on it because that’s how I have it at home. I did okay, but was definitely rusty. I am going to have to make myself go practice much more from now on.

Gone Shooting – Another 22 Day

I went shooting again early yesterday. I brought two guns along but only shot one, which was my Ruger Charger 22 pistol. The other gun was my S&W model 627, but by the time I got around to it the range was getting much busier and decided to leave. The Ruger functioned perfectly and absolutely loves the Federal Match ammunition I feed it; you have to be trying to miss. I had a good time, even with the crowd, and the Ruger makes any day at the range a great one.

Gone Shooting

I went shooting last Thursday, the first time this year. I only took two of my Ruger 22 pistols. I wasn’t in the mood to shoot anything larger. I went early on a weekday so there were very few people around and the weather was perfect too, just a relaxing couple of hours – trying to make one big hole out of a bunch of little ones. That’s a morning well spent.

Gone Shooting

I went shooting last Friday, the first time for 2018. I took my S&W 627 .357 Magnum and put a box through it. It had been a while. I also brought along my Ruger Challenger .22 pistol and that’s what I spent most of my time with. There’s something satisfying about trying to make one big hole out of a bunch of little ones. That’s a morning well spent.
