    I just wanted to get your attention because I need the sharp eyes of the membership, lol.

    I put together my old tried and true field load, which is a 225 lead TC over enough Unique to keep’em buzzing down range at 820-850 fps, depending on barrel length.

    I fired the LW Commander and the new Springer with 4 rounds each from a distance of 25 yards off hand. The goal was to check for proper feeding and also accuracy.

    First the LW Commander;

    I can certainly live with that, especially from a LW with shorter sight radius.

    Now the new Springer;

    ????
    Now, here’s where I need help. I fired 4 shots. Does the hole on the left look like it may have two bullets thru it?
    I mean, I certainly could have missed, but it’s hard to imagine a miss the way I was shooting today, but it’s possible.

    Either way, if I missed, it was certainly my fault and not my loads or the gun.

    What does the membership think?

    Good shooting!

    I may have to check out one of those Springfield Armory Defenders series guns.

    Wait wait wait, you want to blame US when you tell your Prancing Pony that the new Springfield shoots better? I will not be party to this.



    I think both will serve you well, and that looks to be a 2fer!

    You have seen me shoot.

    We had a shooter when I shot in Tonawanda NYS, who called doubles a lot! Unless I was RO, with my trusty double gage! One thing about using my Hensley and Gibbs 200g cast semi-wadcutters, the bullet hole on a cardboard IPSC target, was so clean. No argument on doubles (Or not!) the route my wife and I took coming home, had us going through an Indian Reservation, cheap cigarettes!
    As we did not, and still do not smoke, a moot point.

    The road signs were changed quite often, shot up signs! We used to avoid the Peace Bridge that way. We also stopped for a late breakfast, a little restaurant, fantastic bacon, and home fries!

    Apparently still going that monthly match.
