Ahh, its been a long cold slog through winter. Lots of work and responsibility. Finally, as the buds start to peek out, flowers start flowering, and peepers start peeping, the weather starts to warm. We have a long weekend…. . Spring has sprung, and that’s an opportunity to go to the Range. Enjoy!
Range looks good. Not too crowded. Bright warm and sunny. Of course, not everyone had Friday off…. .
We’re setting up today at 7 yards. I am not a good shot anyway. And though I need the practice for sure, I also want to keep my ego intact, as I am shooting today with Phil. Hmm.
Still setting up. Did I mention how nice it is just to be outside? We took our time at the range, just because.
Quality Control Winchester!
Phil shooting both the Beretta and the Taurus… .
So, to review:
Both the Taurus and the Beretta are fun. After 100 rounds in the Taurus, my hands hurt. I think we may have to acquire something a bit more manageable for SO though… .
The Taurus is a nice close-in shooter. Grips are a little small, but its a tiny light-weight gun, built for concealment.
Both had no failures. Not a big surprise there.
The Beretta was a nice acquisition. Yes, its old-school – slippery grips and fixed sights. But a great deal for under 300 dollars. It shot well – little recoil, easy to point, easy trigger pull.
Another oddity – used to be the range would care less about brass, it would simply get swept aside. Now, you practically trip over the staff as they clamor to take it. I guess their policy is, if it hits the ground its theirs. Did not like that. Not at all.
