Kim officially has 1,000 rounds down range.

No hiccups.

Holes in paper.

Smile on face.

Got the chance to fondle a Stainless Ultra today. It had Meprolite sights and checked, rubber grips.

At first I wasn't too keen on the rubber grips, but the more I played with it and dry fired it the more comfortable the rubber grips became. Sure wish I could have emptied a magazine with her just for the 'full experience.'



At a different LGS I got to fondle some full size and commander Springfields, Rugers, and Remington. The others, I did not like at all. The trigger felts gritty and too much pressure. But, the Remington R1 was actually a very nice 1911. It really felt nice. At less than $900 I could see buying one of these, if I wasn't already addicted to Kimber crack. :)

It was a pleasant day. I think I'll buy myself a beer. ;)

Well, I guess. Don't want to jump to any conclusions. I might should keep shooting it just to be sure.

I did find out that three weeks away from the range will NOT improve your shooting. Not shooting left, like I used to, but was grouping low, with a few flyers. Anticipation sucks.

If you have the opportunity to dry fire in between range visits that will help. Muscle memory!:)

Every time I go to the basement, I swing by the safe and take out one to dry fire for a while.

Not trying to make excuses, all y'all know I'm a crappy shot already, but at home with all the bright, ambient light, I can see the front sight so clear it makes holding steady very easy (plus I know it's just gonna go click) but at the range, the shooting stations are so dimly lit that I can't see the sights, other than silohette. So my eye tends to move toward the target, which is lit, and makes it difficult to keep my eye from jumping around. I need to try shooting outdoors.

I see...taking the eye off the front sight...that would be a problem for me. I shoot outdoors 95% of the time.

I shoot better outdoors. The lighting makes all the difference.
