Green Raptor range report

Not perfect but not even disappointed. Let me tell you why. Having sold my Ruger LCP and my Bersa Thunder Plus .380 some time ago it has been a while since I reviewed my .380 ammo inventory and I just assumed I had plenty. I found a box of International Cartridge Co.75 grn fp that my son in law gave me a box that his dad had for who knows how long. A box of PPU 94 grn fmj and a box of FM 100 grn rnfp. I decided to go right for the green around the gills Micro's juggler, Tourist. I fed it the old 75 grain. First shot stove pipe. Bump rack fired and finished the magazine. Second magazine 2nd round ftf. Finished that magazine and put that bleep up. I had one shot in the 10 ring 9,8,7 rings it was not pretty at 7yrds. Then I brought out the PPU 94 grn and ran 50 rounds through no hiccups at all. A little better accuracy but still trying to adjust to this 7pound trigger vs my SCP's 4 pound.
Then the FM 100 grn rnfp. Had one issue somewhere after shooting approximately 20-25
trouble free rounds. After the first shot I had a ftf the magazine was not seated. I dont know if I didn't bump it in good because I shot every magazine with one in the pipe. That's the way Ima tote it and that's the way Ima break it in. So when I put the magazine in, the slide was closed. So it is more likely to me that I didn't seat it good rather than an accidental mag release activation.
Fun to shoot! No pain no strain. So much more fun and controllable than my LCP. This is the FM 100 grn at 7yrds.

Great job glokrok!!!! When I first shot mine I had some issues because of my large hands bumping the slide, slide release etc. once I adjusted my grip all was good. Again, great job!!!

I totally agree! It definitely had a little more snap to it with the 100grn.

Again. I see maybe 20 to 30 holes but 50+ casings on the ground. Not bad shooting if you are shooting from the hip, blind folded and from 80 yards.

Just kidding, good shooting.

Actually it was a hundred rounds with 3 targets. The first target was so bad I just threw it in the trash.
