Thread: What did you shoot today?

  1. #1091
    I haven’t posted in a while, being every weekend it’s the same, my EGW built SV open gun.

    Last night I shot iron sights for the first time in 6+ months. I shot my Baer P2 in 9mm, and EDC X9 (which also served carry duty). A friend also let me try out his Ruger Max 9.

    The Max 9 seems like a really solid gun. Plenty accurate. There was a bit of trigger sting, so I wouldn’t want to go more than 50 rounds or so. I had the same issue with my 43 and 48, which was solved by Apex.

    I keep considering “upping” my small carry (G43) option to more rounds. I’ve been considering the Shield plus, which I’ll have to try at some point. Trouble is, I shoot that 43 freakishly well.

    Lane 7, behind the gun.
    Today I had the opportunity to shoot the firearm I was named after. Ran into an acquaintance at the range, who I hadn't seen in awhile. He asked if I had done any shooting, and I replied I just stopped up to function check a pistol. He mentioned he was picking up an item he had in for repair.

    We chatted about the upcoming pin shoot, and if I would provide some tips. Happily agreed, and went back to browsing the sales counter.

    He asks if I want to check out his new Shadow 2, and that he may have something else I would enjoy.

    This is the other thing.... a select fire B.A.R.

    Just because it "feels good", doesn't mean it's best.

    If you were named after “Bar”, it might not have been the gun. Just throwing that out there.

    I checked out a new range today. Fees were high but a 100-yard indoor rifle range is worth ponying up.

    I finished dialing in a Trijicon Credo 1-4 on a BCM midlength. I learned a lesson in wasting ammo: There is a significant difference in POI between M193-alike at 3,250 fps and 68 grain BTHP at about 3,000. I might have saved some close-range practice ammo had I thought about that.

    Then was the real fun: Confirming zero and trying out a bipod on a .308 Tikka T3 CTR. It just needed 2 clicks to the left. Unfortunately, I ran out of time before I got to try any loads other than 168 grain Federal Gold Medal Match. On the bright side, that gives me a reason to shoot it again soon.

    With the heavy barrel, scope, and bipod, it could probably anchor a boat. I hate that when I'm lugging to/from the range. When it's set up on the bench and the .308 goes boom, I don't mind so much.

    One of my "if I win the lottery guns" is either a Colt Monitor or a Wilson Limo protection BAR. Both are shortened /lightened BARs.

    I shot D Platoon LAPD SWAT QUAL Course today. It tests a lot in 50 rounds and about 30 minutes.
    Shot with HK USP 45 LEM from AIWB CCW, closed front cover garment. 230 grain loads. This is my usual carry gear.

    I try to meet the times listed for from low ready while drawing from CCW AIWB with closed front cover garment. I am often .15-.5 second slow on some stages. This is under the holstered par times,

    The parts I find hardest are the 25 yard (longest), 10 yard (longest head shots) and 3 yard (shortest time).

    LAPD SWAT shot this course a miss and you were off the team. Goal is all in the black or head. 8 ring hits are OK. The idea is to group well enough that if they turn edge on you still hit well.
    The #s by the holes are for the yards for the marked shots.

    Today's target enclosed, this is about average for me and needs work.
    Neck hit was supposed to be a chest shot.
    Grip needs to be more consistent and trigger pull needs to be straighter back with better follow through.

    Stay well.

    What did you shoot today?

    Fun weekend shooting steel in bizarre wind conditions. Eg. 1 mile impact with basically zero wind at firing point and target, but sneaky midrange requiring +20.5 Mil -0.6 for an updraft and 4.0 mils of wind (poa 20 feet off target). It took 4 misses to figure that out.

    About 30 arrows with a recurve I bought years ago but haven’t done much with. So far it seems fun.
