Took the G36 to the range today
I took my G36 to the range for practice today. Most trips I only fire 50 rounds. Today, I decided to have an extended practice session and shot 150 rounds at distances of 3 yards to 25 yards. My target was a 5" square piece of cardboard with a Shoot 'NC overlay.
My Glock 36 has a NY1 trigger installed, which I like a lot. Overall, I did fairly well. I tend to shoot 1 - 2 inches to the left. It is a grip thing mostly. With most other handguns, 15 yards is pushing the limits of my older eyes and sights. However, I was able to keep 5 out of 12 in the square at 25 yards. I feel certain the errant rounds would have been torso/com shots were I using a larger target.
Anyway, going to the range was a real treat for me since funds are tight right now. Fortunately, I have a range membership so it was no cost today, and I used ammo I already had. It was a nice way to celebrate my birthday.
One thing I did notice, is the Glock 36 gets much dirtier than the G19 for the round count. The 36 does not like to get dirty. There were 2 misfeeds, not stovepipes, but 2 failures to extract and feed. My experience with the Glock 36 is that when clean, it runs flawless, but when dirty, which is more than 50 rounds, it has reliability issues. Anyway, it was good strip and rip practice.
Sorry, I don't have pictures to share.
