Anybody else have a difficut time converting from steel to plastic?
My primary carry is a Baby Eagle full size steel .40. Been on my hip (IWB) since 2007, 15 hours a day, 7 days a week.
First there was panic when there was a year and a half dry spell on importation from Israel (parts or replacement in case of failure). Then there was the bluing that was worn away on the frame by the holster and harsh environment and cancer set in. So began the hunt for a plastic carry for work.
Enter the Baby Eagle II full size poly that was finally developed and imported. All the features of my steel, virtually same grip (slightly smaller, and less clearance in the trigger guard, find something else every shooting session).
Granted I only have about 500 rounds through it, but I am still having a hard time getting in the groove with it. Shooting consistently 2" left, unless I reeeeallly focus on what I am doing, and then only about half the time I am within 1" of POA. Seems to take forever to get the sights back on target for a follow up shot, and an evil nasty flinch I cant get rid of (empty chamber/snap cap).
I know, practice, practice, practice.
Do I need to mindwipe everything I have learned and start fresh? Is there a trick I am missing here?
I'd love to hear the experiences of those who grudgingly made the switch from steel to plastic, and what you did to over come any problems (if any).
