we went shooting Saturday. it was so much fun!! because shooting is fun!!
i fired my carry gun one-handed for the first time ever (ok, i fired one-handed period for the first time ever), and i’m really proud of the results! wow, shooting left-handed feels weird to a righty.
the guns we fired:
the .44 magnum Colt Anaconda – this time we fired it first so i’d actually be able to hold it up. last year, we fired it last, and my shoulders were so tired that i couldn’t hold up the stinkin’ gun, it’s so heavy. so this time was much better.
here are our targets from about 7 yards (12 rounds).
and this is what we did from 50 feet (6 rounds). i missed one. :-(
our carry guns – Frank his Kel-Tec (.380) and me the Walther P99 (9mm).
the Kel-Tec was really having trouble Saturday, kept jamming. and i cleaned all the guns last time, so it was probably my fault. he also tried out point-shooting, where you just point at your target, don’t line up the sights, and shoot. you can tell which ones were point-shooting and which were aimed shots. from 7 yards.
i did really well with the P99. every 16-round magazine, i fire the first shot double-action, which is how i carry it. these are all from 7 yards. here’s 2-handed, 16 rounds.
here’s right-handed, 32 rounds.
look at Minerva, trying to take credit for my handiwork!
and this is left-handed, 16 rounds.
we decided to not fire the Glock 17 Saturday, though we took it with us. we were having too much fun with our carry guns and then eager to get to the .45s.
here’s Mr. Wonderful with Old Faithful. for those unfamiliar with our guns, Old Faithful is an M1991. 24 rounds, from about 7 yards.
and here’s me with Mr. Shiny (the beautiful stainless steel, Mil-Spec 1991). 24 rounds, from about 7 yards.
after the .45s we were both ready to go. it was a fun fun shooting day!
holy cow. i don’t have a guns category.
