Part 2 of Citizens' Firearms Class - at the Range
Well, this morning was part 2 of our Citizens' Firearms Class taught by the instructors of the Wetumpka Police Department - range time!
I've been shooting pistols now for over five years, but today I learned a lot:
1. I can hit center mass from 15 yards with a 2'' barrel compact .45
2. I can handle the recoil of a 2'' barrel compact .45
3. I CAN'T manage the recoil of a 2'' barrel compact .45
4. I either need a bigger .45 or a compact 9mm
The first picture is 'just shooting' center mass from 15 yards. I fired 43 rounds of 230gr. FMJ. Notice most of them going low-left. I tried compensating by aiming high and right of the target:
This picture is trying for accuracy at 15 yards. 7 rounds of 230gr. FMJ and I was again aiming at high and right of the target. Again, low-left.
