    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.

    That's a heck of a way to do a tooth extraction!

    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.
    Wife's is the same.

    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.

    If you can be accurate at 25 yards and out you should have no problem whatsoever with accuracy at closer distances, right?

    True Granny to a point.

    Standing stationary or moving slowly at say 30 yrds and shooting more slowly makes doing the same thing at 7 yrds pretty easy.

    That said at 7 out to 10 yrds in a live encounter things are going to have to happen much much faster be successful and eliminate the threat.

    Shooting at 25 to 50 helps but at 7 drawing fast, shooting fast and moving fast it's an entirely different type of shooting that an average shot like me still needs to practice too to stay effective.

    At least that's my experience.

    That's my experience, as well. At least, when "gamed" at the IPSC bays at the range, and working on more-rapid deployment and movement. It's much harder, in that sense, than 25yd target practice.

    Gotta deal with the clothing effectively (sweeping it out of the way). Gotta be capable of reaching and competently deploying the sidearm. Gotta be physically capable of doing all that while potentially moving rapidly and/or dealing with a close-proximity physical threat. Might well need to hit the ground and/or get behind effective cover. Gotta keep the awareness of the surrounds, 'cause in a real situation it's entirely like Mr. Felon has a snot-nosed buddy off to the side who's preparing to dump on you too.

    I've been in this situation, before, on a couple of occasions, though it didn't involve firearms. It's nasty, ugly, dangerous and extremely fast-moving. With deadly weaponry involved, it's all the more vital to not foul it up. IPSC/IDPA tests some of those challenges, and our "gaming" scenarios at speed can as well. But nothing quite compares to a real situation with a real adversary who's equally intent on putting us down. (God, do I hate those situations.) That's what we're training for, ideally. The 25yd stuff is all well and good, but not a lot of that translates to the "bad breath distances" stuff.

    5" Sig 1911 , 230gr. magtech JHP, 3" vertical/ 4.5" horizontal ..... definitely not performing up to the capabilities of this pistol, shaky hands and poor eyesight are showing more and more

    I took a different approach. I wanted to shoot my 20 shots at 7 yards as the first 20 shots EVER out of this new Colt 1911 9mm that I recently bought. Awesome gun! I have been trying to better the grouping since I did the first 20 and I am having trouble with it. Must have been "new gun mojo", lol. I am finding American Eagle to be a better group than Blazer. I need to experiment with a couple others.
