    Beretta 92 with American Eagle 147 grain, and for a better shot of the target hereís this:

    Obviously 20-something seconds is basically an eternity, so I had all the time in the world to clean up my sight picture and fuck with my grip in between shots. If I was seriously training for Bianchi Cup the par time is 6 shots in 15 seconds, which is a lot less time and I have to take better steps to manage recoil.
    Excellent work! From the looks of your picture you were shooting COM on a backer. Some might prefer a high contrast reference point to use as an aiming point. There you have to be careful what you ask for because the urge to perfect a sight picture may outweigh sight alignment. Good solid sight alignment and a trigger press that does not disturb the sights wins every time as evidenced in your target.

    Iíd much rather shoot at something like a B8 or an NRA Action Pistol target at 50 yards than a plain IDPA target. The high contrast reference point makes getting hits easier. I just happened to have nothing but IDPA targets at the range yesterday.
    I shot the PX4 before it was cool.

    I completely understand. However for some it is a double edged sword. They think it is easier yet they get obsessed with sight picture at the expense of sight alignment which negatively impacts outcome.

    Best I could manage today with the P30 V4.1. Had some guy doing mag dumps at 7 beside me the whole time which made concentration difficult. Called 2 of the three fliers to the left as soon as I broke the shots.

    Second target was 25 rounds from 25 yards. Iím trying that at my club range when I canít walk down and put up fresh targets as a courtesy to other members firing.

    Moved it to the 50. Going to start working on that now.

    And ignore ď127 grainĒ......124 fmj Speer factory seconds.

    This was a magazine with no time limit, setting the gun down after 5 round sets. My proudest moment was calling the miss low left as the shot left.

    Looks like 2405 North Parkway's range, Babypanther. Good shooting!

    I need to run by there one Tuesday and hang some B8s up. Haven't shot there in years.

    Regards.
