First time at the range with the Kimber

So I finally got to the range with my new Kimber. Put 100 rounds of Winchester white box through it tonight. Only shot it at 20' but was very pleased and had no issues whatsoever. Sorry you have to tilt your head to the left but the site where I loaded them keeps turning them sideways and it's too late to care. Here is my first 50 rounds.





On the next target my wife shot the first two magazines and her first 2 shots were both in the orange bullseye. She turned with a grin and said "I imagine this is what crack is like!"

My wife likes to do that once and a while she will take my Kimber and remove the orange from the center of my targets.

Nice job. Make sure the wife accompanies you every time. It will get expensive because soon, you'll have to buy your own gun. But it will be worth it.
