One big plus of the pistol caliber carbines is the accuracy. What distance were you shooting at?

That was at 25 yards. The tricky part was that the target was swinging side to side making it harder to get a tight group.

It seems like it takes forever for the targets to stop swinging on those cables.

I have a Kel-Tec sub2000 on order at my LGS. I'm looking forward to it.

Would clipping some weight to the bottom of hanging targets, giving them more 'inertia', slow the swinging down?

Ya, I've been keeping an eye out for them and this us the only one I've seen. I might have to do a lil more looking around. I doubt it'll still be there by the time I can afford it anyway
