Range Update #2
Yesterday, after work, I went to the range to run another 200 rds of WWB through the Kimber to continue its break in. I only used the two Tripp Gen II Cobra mags this time. The first mag in, rack the slide, fire, fire, fire, fire, slide lock back. I’m thinking what the hell! Not this again! I chamber another round and finish off the last three rounds in the mag. At this point I’m wondering if my second day shooting the pistol is going to go the same route as the first. Throughout the next hour, I fired twenty six more mags without a single issue or hiccup!
After another 200 rds through it, and then some SD ammo run through to see how it likes it I hope to be able to carry it if I choose to. I haven’t shot the 9mm in 3 weeks so I think I’m going to run them both next time. I will enjoy seeing if I shoot the 9 better this time around now being used to the 45 recoil.
I have one 5-shot target I brought home which was towards the end of my range time. I am only really happy with one of my groupings at 15 feet. Being new to this (up until I purchased my 9mm less than a month ago I had never fired a gun with the exception of my NRA course), I try and make myself understand that this isn’t easy and is going to take a lot of practice and time. One grouping will be good and the next I’m back all over the target.
I'm lefty, but right eye dominant and I still need to work on holding the pistol and aiming. I find that I can't keep both eyes open when firing, cause I can't focus on the sight. I am still anticipating the recoil so my shots are mostly hitting low and right. Got to keep practicing and take a few classes when I can. I am definitely going to pick up a few more of those Tripp mags. Photo of target to follow.
