    Day at the range

    I looked on the internet and found an indoor range a few minutes away from where I have one of my cars in an indoor car show all this weekend (an hour from home). I packed my range bag this morning and snuck off to the range mid day.

    I took the PT709, XD40sc, and the S&W 49 Bodyguard snub.

    709 - I put 150 rounds (various brands and types - round nose, flat nose, and HP) through it today from 30 feet with no problems. First couple of mags were dead on and then I started shooting consistently low. I set it down and shot the others and came back to it. Shot it low some more but finally got it worked out towards the end of the session to where my groups were the size of my palm. Not sure why I went low for a little bit, but got it worked out.

    XD40sc - I put 100 rounds through it today from 30 feet and it was flawless. First 9 round mag was dead in the center silhouette chest ring and tight. Loaded my second 9 round mag and went for the center of the head in the target silhouette and again dead center face and tight. I reeled that target back in, took it down, and kept it. The rest of the time with this weapon today was great. Consistently dead on. The more I shoot this gun the more I love it. I'm doing better with it than anything at the moment and it's fairly new (150 rounds total through this gun in a month).

    S&W 49 Bodyguard snub 38 - I was disappointed. I was all over the place with it from 21 feet and just couldn't get it going. It was good enough for SD, but nothing to save the paper over. I'm telling myself it's because I went over to the dark side and started shooting semi's alot. Snubs take consistent practice to stay proficient. I've not been doing that and it shows.

    Great day at the range today. Glad I could squeeze in an hour of shooting since I was so close already.

    Sounds like a good day. Showing your car and getting some range time.

    Snubby is getting even with you for ignoring it.

    I think you're right.....getting snubbed by a snub.

    No joke. I've got 2 60s VW Bugs and the minute I start sriving one a lot the other snubs me by something going wrong. Those are the most tempermental little cars. I had to drive one an hour home from the car show Sunday night with no clutch...good thing I've had practice doing that.

    The other one has an ignition issue that I've got to fix...think I'm just going to switch it to electronic ignition and be done with it.
