Range Report

 So, like I said...  Uncle sent me to the range.  It had been a while.  A few practice mags with the Colt Commander and I real hunker in on feathering in the surprise break of the trigger with the tip of my finger.  It seems slow, but the shots are better than the foolish practice rounds.  The final target, I shoot this:

Three magazines, 1, 2, 3.

I ditched the shoot-n-see because sometimes that is a crutch for me.  I really concentrated on the trigger on that upper right hand corner and shot the best string out of a 1911 I've ever shot.  I am very pleased.

That is the closest I've come to a true shooting Epiphany.  I was resigned to not even getting close to one, and here one is. 


The purpose going in was to test hollow point ammo out of this pistol.  I had Federal Hi-Shok and Hydra-Shok (they are different.)  Not a hiccup, and now I have self defense ammo up and running.

In fact, I've never had a hiccup with this Colt since I got it.  I need to put more time in to be sure I am over 500 rounds through it, but I have to be close.  Plus, to hold onto whatever I got a hold of this session with the trigger.  Again, very happy I am.

Oh and this leather thing came in the mail 2 days ago.

The Milt Sparks holster for it.

Good week.

Maybe you need some wrist-strengthening exercises.
