Short range report.
I took my 22/45 and my SIG 1911 to the range today. My sister joined with her buckmark lite and shield. I shot them all well.
My 22/45 ate everything I fed it; federal bulk, Remington thunderbolt and of course CCI mini mags all without a flaw. Not the case with the Buckmark, which had a few failure to feed issues with both the federal bulk as well as the thunderbolt.
I was impressed with its accuracy as was my sis. I shot a few 4" groups at 10 and 15 yards and surprisingly, I was combat accurate at 25 yards. The Buckmark was giving me the same groups but i didn't stretch it out to 25 yards. That 22/45 is quite a sweet shooter. I shot even better with my 1911 at 15 yards than I normally do, not see what to chalk that up to, but I double punched holes 3 times. It turned out to be a short range session since I started getting an ocular migraine and couldn't even find the front sight after a while.
I gave it the Ruger once over with a few swabs of CLP and ran a boresnake through the barrel several times, for now that is as far as I'm going to go. I might just keep doing that until I get some jams then look to strip it and give it a thorough cleaning.
Overall, I am impressed with its accuracy as well as its functionality. I am glad I bought it, it will provide me a great platform to practice with and will be a great pistol to use as an introduction to shooting for my kids. This is something we can all handle.
