    After 5 months I finally went shooting today

    I haven't been shooting in 5 months due to the cold temperatures, but the weather is finally warming up again. I took my new Beretta M9, XD45 Service, and my old trusty G19 to the range. I fired 170 rounds through the Beretta, 30 rounds through the G19, and 50 through my XD45. I fired all of them at 10 yards (I prefer to practice within typical defensive ranges). I had thought the sights were off on my XD, but it turns out it was me. I can officially say that I trust my life to my XD and has a place in my carry lineup. The Beretta was a joy to shoot and the G19 as usual ran flawlessly!

    Sounds like a great day for shooting, but why does cold weather keep you from shooting?
    I've spent quite a bit of time in Anchorage, it doesn't get THAT cold...

    It feels good, doesn't it?? I bet you you went "Haaaahh!" once you were done. Glad you're slowly thawing.

    Most of the winter the temperatures hovered around the 0 to -25 degrees, except when it snowed. Not only that it wasn't until recently I started stocking up like crazy on practice ammo. I had some other things to deal with first, but I will try and go shooting as often as I can.
