Range Report: Lessons learned.
Went to the range today, as the title implies, and learned a few things.
Remember to bring ammo for every gun you intend to shoot.
I forgot to put 9x18 Makarov ammo in the range bag to try out my new Polish Radom P-64. They had ammo at the range, but they wanted $28 for a single box of Winchester! That's double what I can get online for reloadable Mak's, and nearly 3x the price of brown bear. AmmoEngine: 9x18mm Makarov, Instock For Sale Premium & Discount Ammunition, Ammo Deals
Laser sights on a Charter Arms "Off Duty" .38 may not be such a great idea.
I fiddled and adjusted and probably cursed a bit, but never got that darn dot to line up with the point of impact. Good ole iron sights work ok.
The Glock 26 is still, by far, my best grouping pistol.
I could shoot a passing group at 21' with the .38 if I had to retake the CCW test.
With the Glock 26 I could move the target out to 50' and still pass easily.
I have recoil and trigger springs for the P-64, which hopefully will make it easier to shoot. Reportedly the DA trigger pull is over 20 pounds!
