Range Report - The Chickadees

Decided to go to the range today since they still had lanes open & we didn't have other plans.

I took my Super Carry Pro HD & my Sig P226. Mr. Chickadee took his Springfield friends (TRP Operator & EMP 9mm). No issues with any of the pistols!

I shot mostly 'programs' with my Super Carry - the range has Meggitt target carriers that can run programs where they go to a specified distance between 3 -25 yards & then rotate to either be on 'edge', or with either the back or front facing the shooter. Different folks run these programs differently. For me I place the loaded pistol on the table, safety on, in between each target position, hands at my sides.

For the first target I ran the program titled 'Basic - Medium', shot at center mass attempting 2 shots per target location. This round was a little messy.

Next I ran the same program & only went for 1 head shot per target location - much better. After that run I shot several rounds at center mass at a static 7 yards (trying to clean up that target, not pictured ).

For the 2nd target I used the same program, but alternated shooting at the head vs. center mass.

Third target is with the Sig P226 at 7 yards. Interesting note: the Sig had been destined for a trip back to the mothership for worsening issues with FTE - it likes to leave the spent brass in the chamber. Today it functioned flawlessly, which it has NEVER done before.... Maybe it knew about my plans....

Good shooting Chicadee! This range with programs sounds really cool. We don't have anything like that in SETX maybe Houston, I don't know.

Thanks for the compliments! I shot well yesterday, by my own standards. I still need to improve, but I'm proud of how far I've come in the past few years.

SHARP shooting Chickadee! That would be cool for the targets to move and shoot, maybe some day my range will catch up with technology.

Wink Oh Yeah!!!

And a good time was had by all!!!

Looks good there, Chickadee!!! How did Mr. Chickadee shoot? You need to get him to jump in here on the forum!! Ya'll are like watching Penn & Teller do a magic show. Teller is always there, but he never says anything!!! I'm sure Mr. Chickadee has got to be a great guy. After all, he has a really cool wife!!!

Always enjoy reading your posts!!!
