2nd trip to the range

Had my new Pro CDP at the range today. 200 rounds of 115gr some Fiocchi and some Winchester. Only one feed problem and it was my fault. Mags are tight and I did not load it right. I am getting use to the drop and feed with these mags and sometimes I don't push it back enough. Getting use to the weight in the Pro CDP too since my .380 Raptor doesn't have much to it, helps though be more accurate with the Raptor.
I was a little squirrely at first, but then tighten my grip and elbow then things straighten out. Cannot tell you how much I love this firearm and so glad this is the one I chose for my range shooting. I am one happy camper!
