    Up until the eye incident I was having a good time. Matt and I were blasting our improvised targets we brought along to warm up.

    We also set up a 1911 comp. My Kimber vs. His Rock Island Officer. This is my PVC target stand, works great.

    Here are the results of that.

    In Matt's and his RIA's defese, he had too much coffee and was pretty tired from 3rd shift work. The RIA shoos great and is very accurate.

    I also did some wet newspaper ballistic testing.

    Great report Goju and really good shooting. It would appear that 1911 is becoming an extension of your own arm. :p

    Those Rangers look nasty. I think more than half the problem with those would be if you had to try and take one out, especially in a battlefield situation. Those edges would just make a slaughterhouse of anything fleshy they came in contact with while moving.

    Nasty indeed. :eek:

    Great shooting, good report, those Rangers do look particularly nasty!
    What was "The eye incident" ?

    Great report Goju! Those Rangers look good but I'm still sticking with my HSTs for the time being. I'm hoping to get a little range time in this weekend myself but we'll see.

    Goju. How much wet newspaper did it take for you to be able to recover those rounds?

    12" thick would be plenty. :)
