It was a little cool this morning so I waited until the Sun warmed the air a little. Left the house at noon, picked a cheeseburger on the way, and made it to the range about 12:45. Only one guy there, a nice fellow I've talked with before.
I set up a practice range for some serious practice for shooting my first USPSA match coming up on the 22nd. I set up two target frames for cardboard and two steel plates. No knowing what the course of fire will be, they change it every month, so I moved my targets around about once an hour.
I did a lot of draw and shoot "double taps", fast strings with some movement and lots of reloads. After awhile some other shooters showed up and that limited my movements.
I brought my three 1911 / .45s, a Kimber Classic, Ruger SR, and Sig TACOPS. All three shot very well with the Kimber being the best overall. The main reason being the fiber optic front sight. The Ruger has a white dot and the Sig has night sights. For getting on target fast the fiber optic was far and away the best.
After running 300 rounds of .45, I broke out my Sig 320 Sub-compact. I just got it back from the safety recall and installed the newest APEX Advanced trigger and transfer bar. Plus a little polishing. It shot amazingly well, dead on the money a ran flawlessly with Fed 115, FMJ and two different hollow point defensive rounds.
I didn't have a single failure all day ... not one.
I also shot a few cylinders through my EDC J-frame just to keep sharp with it. I did a round count and figured I shot 540 total rounds and left the range at 5:15. A very serious work out and I'm beat ... looking forward to a hot shower and strong drink. A great day at the range.
Oh ... and gave away three sets of foam ear plugs to some dudes that showed up with rifles and shotguns and no ear protection .
