Been To Long

Today along with the SIS I decided to take the Master Carry Pro which I had not fired since some time last year. It was already cleaned and lubed with Breakfree so I loaded it up and blasted away. I only had about 75 rounds of 230gr FM FMJ ammo and it functioned and fired perfectly. No issues at all. I know boring.
The round heel of the Master Carry really fits my hand well, sounds strange but to me recoil is mild, maybe even better than the full size all steel Custom.
I really need to shoot this one more cause it is a smooth easy shooting, accurate pistol.

Nice shooting. The Master Carry Pro is one of my favorites. It feels like it was made for my hand.

Nice shooting. Good practice in case we are invaded by little green men also.

Nice, don't wait so long next time. That gun needs to be shot regularly.

I shot my Super Carry Pro HD yesterday and agree with the nice feel of the rounded grip.

I'm a big fan of Kimbers round heel guns, they are some of the best shooting guns I have.

I know right! I am going to have to write up a rotation system, instead of my usual, hmmm I'll take this one and this one and this one because I end up with the same ones at the range all the time.
Right now ammo usage is the problem going thru 500 rounds pretty fast.

I had a similar problem, what I now do is just take .45's + my carry gun one day then 9mm and .380's + my carry gun the next time. I also keep the .22 conversion kits in the bag That way also gives you time to replace the ammo you shot the trip before.
