A Morning at the Range

My club's first PPC match of the year was today.

Damn, it was cold. Not being willing to open my coat, I used a belt over it for the match. That put the holster a few inches higher. Which played hob with the draw.

Anyway, I'm not going to discuss score numbers. The match director tinkers with the format each year, it's probably not anywhere a sanctioned match.

My gold standard gun is a 6" S&W Model 19. I was two points off that with my Sig P226, three points with a 4" Model 66 and 25 points with my 6946. I bobbled one stage and ended up with two rounds in the gun when the whistle blew, so my performance with the gun wasn't as terrible. Still, shooting a compact gun against the clock at 25 yards was pretty sucky.

I ran out of time, so I'll have to try the High Power another time.

I had people to see (and the sky was blue).
