That's pretty good shooting, Don. Those shorties are definitely harder to shoot straight than the 5 inchers. I'm trying to get consistent patterns with this one, since it's my carry piece. it's better than I am. I'm getting used to the "gutter" sighting, but the older I get, the better I was. I'll get there after a few more trips to the range.
BTW, Don, I see your avatar, I'm a C6 driver.

I love Corvette's I've had one most of my life.

I sure understand "the older I get, the better I was"

Don, you didn't buy that pistol, you stole it. You must be living right. Congratulations on a fine pistol acquisition, enjoy that rascal.
