Went and picked up the wife's new Walther PK380 on friday. After getting all the paperwork out of the way we immediately stepped out on the range to see just how well it would perform.
This was the first target we shot, and we both shot this target so its kinda hard to tell how well each of us did. However I clearly remember that her first shot was dead center of the orange circle. So not much else to say other than she did pretty well right off the bat.
She shot this target all by her lonesome. She is left eye dominant but right handed. At first I asked her to see if she could switch eyes, which she attempted, aiming at the "bad guy" on the left. After a clip, and a few errant shots, she decided to go back to her normal shooting style.
She did pretty well when she switched back and had some pretty good groups on the right side, I especially was impressed by her very last shot on this side which dead center of the face.
She wanted to take a break, so I pulled out my XDm9 and very quickly shot up a box of 50 in about 4 mins. All of which were aimed at the mid torso section. I then got out all of my hollow point ammo to try out. I had only shot target ammo out of the XDm up until now, cause "i'm cheap."
1st up was the Hornady critical defense 115gr FTX
5 shots all within the middle of the head. Felt really good.
2nd was PMC Gold 124gr SFHP
4 shots first shot was a good 10 inches to the right, next 2 were just right of the lower jaw area and the last was dead center of the neck. not really impressed with this ammo and it had more recoil than anything i've put through the xdm.
3rd was Winchester Luger 147gr JHP, 5 shots at the head, 3 were touching and the other two just to the left. By far the best performing of the three in my opinion. and now has replaced the hornady as my home load of choice.
Her last target. This target I asked her to fire as quickly as she could to see how well she could stay on target. From what I could tell standing behind her, she would get two shots very close and then her aim would drop about and 1 1/2 to 2 inches, then two more close and she would drop again. Still overall, I felt pretty comfortable with her handling of the weapon and her firing it. I definitely feel better about her being home alone.
We both had a blast, cant wait to go back again this friday!!!
Please chime in and let me know whatcha think.
