Default Got the XDm range day

Got the XDm 45 last week. I wanted to go to the range with my son. Today was the day, too bad it was pouring down rain!! Oh well, whats a little rain. We took the Marlin 336 30-30, Colt Official Police 38sp, and my brand new XDm 45. Let me say, the Springfield come as a VERY nice package, I'm sure you guys have all seen the pkg so I wont waste space on pics of that. No pics of the targets from the Marlin, I forgot them there.

The single target is mine, after getting used to the XDm with two mags(13 rnds ea), at 20 ft, there is one mag in that target. All the shots were from the same distance. We put 100 rounds through the XDm, ran perfectly, no malfunctions of any kind. we also shot about 100 rnds through the colt, as usual that old guns is perfect too. The pic of the four targets is 45 and 38 just blastin and having fun!!

We had a good time, despite the rain, got completely soaked and freezing but a great time anyway!! Looking forward to shooting on a sunny day!!

Thanks for looking, Joe and Joe
Oh and the range is VERY nice!!

Here is my son on the 100 yd range with the Marlin, and one from the bench at the targets. I would have taken more pics but for the rain.

BLASPHEMY!

Never let them beat you. Fake an injury My Friend, save face. It really is for the good of all of us old guys.

Excellent shooting all around though. Your boy shows superb talent behind the trigger.
