I went to the range yesterday morning for the first time since my surgery. It has been over seven weeks since I fired a shot. I took this old Super Blackhawk:
I've been shooting close up, duelist style; that is standing, one handed, as ranges not over ten yards, and using a six inch stick-on Shoot -N-See target. I had figured a pretty bad outing, for lack of practice for so long. Much to my surprise, I didn't do too badly. Shooting at eight yards, twenty-five rounds went through the black, and left a large jagged hole.
Why did I do so well? Well, I did spend considerable time dry firing. This helped keep my muscle tone and my concentration up to par, and I'm sure that dry firing practice did keep me in shape.
Hey guys, I just picked up a new PMR-30 and took it out for testing yesterday. Out of the first magazine I had at least 6 rounds that would not fire. I'm using one of their recommended ammo's (in the manual). The Winchester Super X 40 grain. I realize testing a different ammo type is next up, but I'm just wondering if any of you have experience with this gun and have comment. Is there something I can look at or check for issues here? Feeling disappointed that this new gun is acting up like this.
I have a M&P Shield 9mm with the thumb safety. I prefer a thumb safety, but the thumb lever is too small to hit reliably 100% of the time, so I don't carry it. Is there an aftermarket part for this or does anyone have a fix?
Something like the manual safety on the M&P 45 or the Taurus Millennium G2 would be ideal. It doesn't need to be a 1911-type lever.
