Well, yesterday was my birthday and I just happen to have the day off work so I decided to make the drive up to my family's property and do some shooting. I loaded up my Kimber, my newly purchased 629, my model 19(not a glock) and my Marlin 795 that I recently mounted a scope.
First the Kimber...
I put about 200 rounds thru it yesterday and I'm now a fan. I was before, but I'm sold on it now. I love the trigger, the fast reset, the break, and just how easy it is to point. Here is a couple of targets I saved.
The first target is 25 rounds @ 10 yards. I was drawing from the Crossbreed supertuck, this is all double taps using 230gr FMJ.
Here is one mag from 20 yards, again 230gr.
I knew this was going to be my carry weapon but my XD was my go to weapon. Well gents, that has now changed. The XD got a good oiling and is resting safely. The Kimber now lives on my nightstand or on my person. Moving along...
I put a Bushnell 3x9x40 scope on this little rifle for the huge pricetag of $55 which brings the total price of this rifle to about $175. After getting it sighted in and playing with a couple hundred round I decided to actually shoot. Here are the results,
You can see on the second one I was getting tired and was stringing it, it ws the end of the day. Distance was 30 yards, 10 round groups, using a make shift rest.
I don't want to hear people saying the 795 is not accurate. I got this rifle for small game hunting and I'm sure it will get the job done. It's a bear bones, no frills rifle, it shoots and shoots well.
I took the 629 along and put a total of 12 rounds thru it. I will not post the paper as I don't want to embarrass myself. The only ammo I could find for it was WWB, 240gr JSP. That wood grip may look pretty but it sucks for function, a Hogue grip is going to be ordered before this cannon's next outing. I'm going to need some time and practice to learn how to tame this thing and actually put rounds where I want them.
Side note: IGETEVEN aka Jack, is a liar! I was in the chatroom with him the other day and asked him about the recoil on a 44 Magnum. He said it wasn't bad, the 8" barrel should help and that it was similar to a 357. He was clearly mistaken. Keep your eye on him.
The model 19 got one cylinder and then a squib. My fault, it was one of my loads, not sure what happen there. Not having the proper tools to clear it, it got put away.
All weapons were cleaned once I got home wrapping up a good day.
