Default Shooting the Dan Wesson CBOB

Having some sparetime this morniung I ran down to my local indoor range to try out the Dan Wesson .45 and shoot a few through my Charter Arms Bulldog .44. The Dan Wesson shot and functioned beautifully, not a hiccup with the 100 rounds of Magtech hardball. Groups were decent considering this is the first time I have shot this gun. I was a little disappointed with the sights on this piece as at 61 years old I had a hard time seeing them. Thet are a type of night shights and do not stand out well for my eyes in daylight.I actually feel that the sights on my Bersa UC .45 are much better than the CBOB's. I tried MT's shooting programm of shooting strong and weak hand. I now uderstand why they call it the "weak " hand. Was able to preform double taps quickly and with a good deal of accuracy

I only shot 25 rounds through the Charter due to paying $32.00 per box of 50 Blazer ammo. John D. Rockafeller I am not. The Charter also preformed perfectly with good accuracy and was a pleasure to shoot. Sorry no pics but haven't learned how to get the film out of the camera and on to the computer as of yet.

Good shooting and shoot safe

The CBOB is a great pistol and I'm sure you'll like yours more as time goes by. I have one and it's my favorite 1911.

P.S. I've got older eyes too.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

The problem I've always had with CBOBs is getting them off the stick when they're hot. {rim shot}
