new K6S owner with first rounds fired (pics), a K6S extended test if you will.

Guys, I recently joined the forum and have been contemplating buying one until I rented one from a local range. After having a postive experience with the range K6S, I was hooked. I located a night sighted version and bought it at a decent price.

I took it to the range yesterday and shot 117 rounds out of it with NO issues. Below is some of the groupings of my new gun. I am very pleased with this gun and am actually pretty good with it. I threw in a grouping from my duty carry Glock 19 gen 4 for comparison. Sorry I did not take a pic of my gun as I was too excited about the groupings. I will follow up with that later as well as some other things I discovered. I shot Winchester 130 grain, Remington 130 grain, Magtech 158 grain (pretty hot loads), Speer Gold Dot 135 grain +P short barrel (my carry rounds), Hornady XTP, and some Remington 357 magnums (those were fun). All of the below groupings were fired at 7 yards to just see where I was at. The 158 grain Magtechs shot high to point of aim but fine out at 15 & 25 yards. I will post pics of more of my outings as I continue to shoot and love this gun.

I am still amazed at the accuracy that I was getting compared to my Glock on my first range trip. Have I told you how much I love this gun yet...

Enjoy, more to come guys.....

Will likely get one after I locate someplace that has a rental that I can shoot before buying.
I have always shot better with small revolvers than I should.
