    Bad eye day at the range, but the C5L laser to the rescue - And of course pics!!!

    Well, some days my eyes work great; some days they don't work great; today was one of those not great days, BUT there is a bright spot to all this - pun intended - my C5L laser/light combo.

    I just wasn't up to par; I could tell I was struggling with the sight picture and I persevered long enough to see it wasn't going to get any better this particular day, sooooo, on goes my C5L laser. I had an enjoyable time sighting it in. Got by the, "hmmm, this thing is a bit loose now" and got it zeroed at 7 yds.

    This is rapid fire, and by rapid fire at 7 yds. I don't mean 4 or 5 shots a second, I simply mean I was shooting as fast as the laser came back on target. I have no idea what the rate was, but it was pretty impressive. At least I was impressed, but maybe I'm easily impressed. So was the guy in the next lane - he came over and wanted to know what I was shooting, and made the comment, "You must shoot a lot." I just beamed!



    Actually, he was of the age of eye issues so I invited him to shoot with my C5L. He wasn't going to but I insisted. I only had three rounds left but here's what he did at about 5 yds first time ever shooting a laser (not to mention my P226R Elite Enhanced SRT) - his are the three shots circled in red:



    You'd almost have to be there and see his target and see him shoot to fully appreciate what he could do with the laser!


    Also, this was interesting - I shot these 10 shots at 15 yds with the laser sighted in at 7 yds. The significance of that is that the gun will index low & right because of the parallax of the laser, so I held the laser slightly high and right - all shooting was off-hand BTW, and the other significant thing is that I wasn't seeing my sights well at all, but with the laser.......:



    I'll sure be glad when my Raven Concealment Phantom holster gets here and I don't have to keep taking the laser on and off.
    I'm too young to be this old!
    Getting old isn't good for you!
