Wink Fun morning a the range.

The wife and I are at our camper we keep parked at a RD park in Mt. View, AR. While she was sleeping I decided to start the day off with a visit to shooting range.

I wanted to see if I could get away with shooting the cheaper steel case TulAmmo ammunition. I took my Custom Eclipse ll, and my Ultra CDP ll in 9mm. I shoot 50 rounds through each and out of 100 rounds, I had 1 FTE from the Eclipse, which I feel was the fault of the steel case. Attached are pic's of the targets for each of the 1911's.
1st. Is the Eclipse Custom ll.
2nd. Is the Ultra CDP 9mm.

If felt good with the results and I was really proud of how accurate the Ultra CDP was. I did have a few fliers, but I going to blame that on the ammo.

Camping & shooting - they just seem to go together perfectly!

Nice shooting, Kenneth. I blame {pick from list} for all my flyers, even though I know it's just me. I sometimes get too anxious after allowing the trigger to reset.

Yes. Wish I had a better camera. Would like to go in a Cub so the window is open for better clarity too.

We were trying to decide today to try to buy the 40 next door for more pasture. Hmmm. We will see....no more tuition so what the hell.

Flyers are really caused by gremlins, trolls and poltergeists pulling the trigger while you aren't looking!!!!!
