I finally got back to a range after a fairly long hiatus (there were reasons). Actually, I've been hoping to burn some powder at Terry's place, but things kept coming up. Anyway, I finally got to the ATI (http://alpistol.com/ ) range this evening with my M49 (CCW), Kel-Tec P11 and CZ-75.

I didn't shoot a whole lot; feeling that after a certain point I'm just firing shots and not actually accomplishing anything, so I started off 'cold' and expending the ammo I've been carrying with the 49; 2-hand, and single-handed, both right and left, with a reload from a Speed Strip. Range was 7 yards, and while I didn't try for Miculek speed, I worked on 'deliberate' speed and got solid hits with all shots. With the remnant of .38 ammo, I practiced deliberate shooting both SA and DA at longer range. I even got hits at 25 yd, using a supported hold and SA.

Next up was the P11. I could tell it's been a long time since I've shot it; the slide locked open repeatedly. I put that down to lack of practice with the little blaster--it likes a good, firm hold. I have thought about carrying it again, but there will need to be a lot more practice first.

Last was the pre-B CZ. Not much to say there; fun plinking!!

I was getting concerned about carrying a gun with so little practice, but I was gratified that I was on target--at a range, facing down a sheet of paper, at least. Range sessions WILL become more frequent!

Good for you Shep, I got to spend a bit of quality time out back myself this week.

Now, if the gubmint would just get off that tax stamp for my suppressor...

Glad you got some trigger time in, Pete. I'm long overdue myself.

Maybe this weekend...(sigh).
