    Glock 17 MOS, SRO in a match. Mediocre shooting - sigh. Gun ran fine. Match was fun. Interesting things:

    1. One stage, you faced up range and had to turn and draw - of course, safety was discussed. One gun didn't turn by stepping, but jumped up in the air and spun around while levitating. Ok.

    2. Grass was a touch slippery. Start in a box. One gun prepares to launch, hits the grass and slips. On his tush, but good shooter, maintains control and finishes the stage decently.

    3. Mentioned this in another thread. 6 stages, lots of targets - guy shooting PCC with optic. On the last target of the last stage after the last shot, his optic falls off. Ok!

    I do like the Glock 17s. Oh, the grip angle - wah, wah. Friend has a new metal framed SW M&P - neat gun. Tempting but have to many expenses now ...

    Todayís trip was to try out a new to me GP100, full size Dagger build and burn the old carry ammo from my Shield though the 365XL.

    A family member recently offered me the GP on the left at a very nice price but passed it up because the fun fund has flat wallet syndrome right now. My wife contacted them, bought it and they surprised me with it yesterday. Shoots nicely as is but Iíll give the trigger a smoothing and spring job eventually.

    The Dagger started as a PSA 4th of July special (a compact and a full size frame for $99). Replaced the trigger group with stock Glock parts, the slide is a PSA Memorial Day special with a Blacklist barrel from the Classifieds here. Iím really digging this set up and it might become my training class/competition pistol if I decide to start shooting the twice a month IDPA indoor match near me.

    The 365XL continues to impress. Obviously itís not as easy to shoot as the bigger pistols but it easier for me to shoot than the Shield 1.0 it replaced. I burned up the last of the carry ammo from the Shield (probably been carried 3+ years) and replaced it with new Hornady something or another.

    First shots with the Dagger build. Top right was target 1. 7 yds, 10 rounds of 150gr Syntec, roughly 1 shot per second cadence. Same set up for the second target but I shanked the first shot low left.

    Checked accuracy

    There are suggestions of the 986 having poor accuracy with a 9mm cartridge using a reported 357 barrel.

    I tested the other day with 150 Syntech and it grouped pretty well. So I thought I would test with copper jacketed "normal" ammo.

    I used 147gr Lawman and fabbed up a target that would be easier to see and align to take that part out of the equation.

    Accuracy at 25 yards was pretty decent and I feel "good enough" for most people's mechanical limitations of shooting.

    I'm a couple days late and don't have pics, but I shot my Gen3 Glock 26 on Saturday. This pistol was my second Glock and first carry pistol. I still carry it pretty frequently in the first holster I bought for it. It's been a great pistol. I'm curious about the Gen5 models because I love the 19.5s so much, but "upgrading" the G26 seems strangely less compelling.

    Still rocking your first carry pistol AND holster! Bravo.

    Sure could have saved saved me some time and money going that route.

    I've had this 629 for a while and eventually got around to mounting the RMR on it a couple of years ago, but I never got around to getting it ready to use for deer hunting. It only took 5 rds to get this zero (1" high at 25 yds). I shot three more for a total of 4 rounds grouping well under an inch.

    Interestingly, the ammo I'm shooting is some Federal 240 gr JHP's that I bought in the mid-70's!



    The path of least resistance will seldom get you where you need to be.

    Well, I managed to buy a bunch of other pistols that I don't shoot much, so I'm not sure how much money I saved. I definitely saved some time though. I still can't find anything that I enjoy shooting as much as a Glock.

    Been home for ten days feeling like crap sick with not Covid(TM) and nothing to do but stalk GB and wonder how much do I need a Staccato.

    Today the weather cleared up and I had enough energy to wander outback with some ammo and put a mag worth of rounds through my LTT92 and CZCSp01.
    Nothing scientific, 10 yard mag dump with each was about all I could manage, but it was nice to get outside for a little bit.
    Did far better with the Sp01 which kinda sucks because I like the LTT more, but frankly I have more trigger time with CZs anymore it's really not a surprise.

    As mentioned over in the recent mouse gun journey thread, that discussion inspired me to start shooting my C&R stuff again. First up, as appropriate for calibers under discussion, was my vz.50:

    If my logbook is to be trusted, the last time I took this poor neglected thing to the range was February 2011, so I wiped off the worst of the gunk, applied TW-25B to the wear points, and dug into the oddball ammo stash for fifty rounds of "7,65 Browning." In twelve years, I had managed to forget the pinch point between the frontstrap and the magazine base plate, the tiny sights, the omission of a slide stop, and the godsawful targeted workout of the double-action trigger. Still, it was an interesting change from the ongoing project of acclimating to optics on my carry guns. I did have one misfeed, which I'm attributing to a magazine that probably rattled around in a succession of StB agents' pockets for thirty years.

    The way we do science in XCOM is basically by shooting things first.
