Unplanned Range Visit!

Had a somewhat unplanned range visit today since I had to reschedule my doctor's appointment (doctor called in sick).

Took my Tactical Ultra, Super Carry Pro HD, & my Sig P226 Stainless Elite
Blew through 300 rounds total!

Both Kimbers were flawless through 100 rounds of Freedom Munitions Reman each. I'm happy to report I'm becoming more accurate with the Tactical - shot it first as suggested by several forum members & worked on tightening my grip with my lower fingers.

Didn't do quite as well with my Super Carry - wrist was really starting to fatigue...

Worked with the Sig P226 last - was nice to have the lack of recoil after shooting 200 rounds of .45!! Had 5 failure to extract with the Sig - more than usual. I may have been part of the problem as my wrists were VERY TIRED at this point.

Even with the tired wrists & minor issues with the P226, much more fun than a doctor's visit!

Target picture is with the Tactical at 7 yards.

I'm with Chuck. No Smilie Faces???

Shooting beats the hell out of being doctored any day of the week!!! I had to go to my sawbones on Monday for an internal infection. Spent 5 days of a 9 day hunting trip sick as a dog!!! I would rather have been shooting, too!!!

I made a smiley for you at my last range visit. Did you see it?
