Default A little time at the range

Finally got to get some time at the range.
The Players: S&W M&P45, RIA Compact 1911 .45 and "The Worlds Greatest Sigma"™.
For the M&P and the RIA it was the first time shooting right from the box. I will say that the trigger on the M&P was easier and slightly better than the other S&W. Definitely different.

The RIA perfomed as I had expected. Very nice for a 3.5 inch barrel 1911.

The first photo is the Players.
The next is the first five shots taken with both the M&P and the RIA from 21 feet. I am sure with time and getting use to the lighter trigger on the M&P45 they will get better. It was just a day to shoot and have fun.
The final is a three shot group from "The Worlds Greatest Sigma"™ at 5 yards.

I had a very fun time at the range and will have to concede the trigger on the M&P feels better.

It was fun to just get out and shoot, it had been awhile. Plus I used up all my federal .45 ammo.
