Thank you. It's a little stiff but just needs to be shot. It's.very accurate! Here is a picture from my range looking at the Kansas river valley.

Thanks. Proof that the entire state is not a flat treeless plain.

So far its been fun to shoot. I ordered 250 115gr Berrys plated bullets to hand itload. That should loosen up the slide a bit

Another easy was to help with the break in process is to just keep working the slide while watching TV.

Thats Brandy, and my pup Nova is somewhere. They are trained to stay 20 yards back from the firing line and wait for me to release them when I am done shooting. Its a good way for a retriever in training to get used to gun fire.
