Tried to go yesterday afternoon, it was a madhouse, close to a two hour wait so we bailed. Talked to one of the range guys, says it has been this way all holiday weekend long.
Went right away this morning and got in. I had about a box and a half of some Rem I had been loading into moonclips and pumping through my Governor, so I ran that through the G21.
She a dirty girl now!
All I got a say is the plain Jane might not win a beauty contest but she found a warm spot in my heart!
Getting used to that trigger didn't take as much effort as I thought. I went into the session loose and focusing just on the basics of stance, grip, sight and pull. She makes a .45 sound, but I was surprised the kick and recoil was less than I would have thought. Definitely not 1911-like. I think that spring design helps on that score and the action seemed really smooth to me and not much muzzle rise so I was able to get back on target quickly. I've shot .40's that seem like they have more kick and muzzle rise, and some .380's are snappier in action than this, overall I am impressed and as far as the results go I drilled center-mass on target quite easily, and I was trying to put follow up shots as quickly down range as I could. Just a few rounds missed outside the 9 ring (those were mostly aiming issues-getting eager to put the next one down), the clear majority shredded the red center zone. I was shooting a vertical oval (silhouette style) impact target horizontally as there was no cardboard backing about, but it worked good enough. A lot of my shots were just center-low from 5 yards out and I was able to walk them onto to center. Pretty much a nice nail-driver pistol, I'll move the target out a bit further next time. For a first run through I have to say I am quite pleased. Any bad apple cross my path while packing this baby would be in a world of hurt.
Definitely a quality weapon!
I'll clean her later today, I got a lot of work for my BIL to get banging on, he already paid me and I spent my earnings already on all my new toys and ammo!
PS-The UpLula definitely is a must, it loads much better and quicker than the little plastic doohicky Glock put in the case.
