    Good shooting.....Hey, I bought a Ruger SR9C many months ago, still in the box. Guess I'll try it next time at the range.

    I didn’t have any calipers, so I used a G19 mag for scale.

    Great shooting, though.

    If it's brand new give it a good cleaning including the striker channel.

    Ruger packs their new pistols with quite a bit of heavy grease.

    Mine has yet to misfire save one time on a under powered reload in several years and a bunch of steel case, brass, aluminum rounds us various jhps.

    As we age priorities change. In days gone by a new gun purchase included a range trip that day, now it has to be worked into the daily schedule. I have other rifles and handguns that have never been fired, let my kids do it after I pass on.

    Shot this last summer. I’m afraid I don’t practice much in the winter ... I like to do archery when cool enough to be outside.

    Does 18 count?

    Went to the range today to test the new case of Finocchi 95 grain .380 in my 4 carry guns: 1 Glock 42's nd 2 SIG P238's. Had a problem, but I'll write about that in my other thread about the Finocchi ammo itself.

    Didn't shoot particularly fast or slow. Just shot - 2 or 3 shots, then reholster and then draw and aim and shoot again.

    Out of around 115 shots through the 4 guns, here is my best group - which was the first Glock group, after shooting quite a lot of rounds through the SIG'S: 3 magazines for 18 shots from the "older" Glock 42. I consistently shoot the Glocks better than the SIG's, although I shoot the SIG's well enough to use them as carry guns, and that SIG Single Action trigger is SO VERY NICE....but still my best group is always Glock. So here it is:

    2018 May 24 Glock 42 - Fiocchi.jpg

    I measured group size from where the actual holes were, not the outside of the splatter target ink pattern.

    Time was when I could shoot a 1" group at 7 yards with my Glock 17. That time was several many years ago!

    Excellent shooting going on in this thread.

    I've personally stopped training at 7 yrds for the most part due to a change in what I have responsibility to be able to consistently do if the need arises. Train mostly at 25 to 50 yrds now.

    Still move in to 10 and do on the move trying as well though.
