    Well, I went out to my local indoor range today. For those of you that don't know me, currently, the only gun I own is a Rock Island Armory 1911 in .45. It's a basic GI style gun, full size, single side safety, Parkerized finish, and 8 round magazine capacity. This works out perfectly for me because I like shooting 25 round groups. 8+1 in the gun, and 16 on my belt in a pair of Chip McCormick Custom 8 round magazines. I only had two failures to feed today, and both were because the magazine was not seated all the way in the gun. Both happened with the factory magazine. I shot at two distances. I ran two groups at 7 yards (21 feet) and one group at 20 yards (60 feet). The first two groups were aimed shots at 7 and 20 yards, and the last group was rapid fire at 7 yards. On to the pictures.

    9 round group at 7 yards, taking time to aim.

    First 25 round group was shot with Magtech 230gr FMJ. Remaining two groups were shot using Federal 230gr FMJ.

    Looking good. Remember, don't practice what you're good at, practice that which you need to get good at.

    That's the plan. I need to get better with point and shoot. I would also like to get a little tighter at distance, especially if I continue pursuing IDPA matches...

    Looks pretty good. The first two are nice, but the last one is the most important. Thats more likely the grouping during an actual incounter. Still good enough to have a BG take a nap 6 feet under. I'd liketo be able to a Bill Drill like some of the people on youtube. 6 shots, all scoring A's in under 1.5 seconds from a holster. Thats proficient!

    Thanks guys. I completely agree with you 0206, that last one will be the one that counts. I think I'll be fine for now though, after all, you'd have to be pretty ****ing special to walk away from that last one...
