My First Range Report

Finally managed to get to the range today with my new Micro STS.

The only problem I had was trying to get rid of some Russian 380 (steel case). This gun would not even try to fire that crap. I went home and got my good PMC ammo and everything worked great. Not one FTF, FTE what so ever with the 100 rounds I ran through this little beauty in the 30 minutes I allotted myself.

Set my targets at 10, 9, 8, 7 and 6 yards. It may just be me getting used to this, but the 7 and 8 yard seemed to be the sweet spot for this one. Real nice tight groupings at these distances.

Glad to hear everything went well, with the better quality ammo. I tend to just stay away from the steel case stuff. YMMV
