I went to the range early last week. I just brought the snubbie along. I had made some mods to it since the NRA Convention. As you can see here:
I bought the DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster, as my Uncle Mikes, while a good value, was looking tired. And there a promotional discount. The new grips are VZ Grips, and I like them MUCH better than wooden or rubber grips. If you've never tried those kinds of grips, do yourself a favor. I could not be more pleased with the way they feel. No, they don't pay me or send me swag or anything. Also, that's a new tritium foresight by XS Sight Systems. With J-frames, the big disadvantage is the little nubbin of a sight looking down in a fixed-forged rear groove. This is the smaller glow-in-the-dark job they sell. And it is bright. It might even light my face is a pitch dark room.
Now the only upgrade I need is a camera and photographer. Sorry about that.
And here is the target. I was rusty. It took a while to settle into the groove with the trigger. And you may notice something, highlighted in green...
As I get comfortable with the trigger pull, the low and right anticipatory flinch of mine appears, even with a DA gun. Interesting. Otherwise, I shoot DA better than SA, as usual.
I should post a reward... $2000 for the person that fixes my pistol flinch with a 1911. That would be with a hands on instructor. I'll mail a $20 bill to anyone that fixes it via comments. Just a thought that's been rolling around in my head. I haven't had the chance to test Ritchie's advice. Need a full size semi-auto for that. I'd love to owe him $20.
