Micro Bel Air Range Report

I bought a Bel Air a couple weeks ago and just took it to the range for the first time. Here's what happened:

Fired a couple hundred rounds. One thing I noticed is that the slide gets warm if you shoot back-to-back-to-back magazines!

Other than that, it worked perfectly. I fired at 3, 5, 7 and 10 yards. I am not Col. Jeff Cooper, but every shot was center ring except for one I shot into the head on each target; also each dead center.

I fired 95 gr. FMJ, Precision One XTP and Lehigh 65 Extreme...whatever it is. All functioned perfectly with one exception: on one round my weak hand thumb got up onto the slide and it failed to go fully into battery. One tap and it was fine and a lesson learned.

Also, this is a soft shooting pocket pistol. I am pleased and impressed.

Alright, another Bel Air owner! Nice report and glad to hear you're a happy owner. I love mine. I just wish the weather was better so I could get back to the range.
