Yesterday was a busy one, I didn’t get to talk about my weekend of shooting. After my trip to Harvard I decided I needed a little trigger time to square myself away. (I was “on” but not “Dead On”)
The solution is MORE .22!!!
So the S&W617 came to the range as well as my Beretta 21A (for nothing but shits and giggles) and I also brought my FAL and my Hunting Magazine to test for reliability. Well there were pros and cons with the 5-shot DSA Magazine. The Good was that it ran like a top…the con is that its a 10-shot magazine. Wally’s going to limit for me, so that problem will be solved in time. It may be for the best because I can’t imagine a magazine being much smaller and still easily manipulated in the rifle.
.22 shooting went well. Nothing to report.
Then on Sunday Evening Christina, Sci-Fi and I hit the range. Had a ton of fun, and shot a bunch of stuff, and had lots of fun. Christina decided after her second shooting of my Cz-82 that its is what it is…and what it is is a spectacular compact firearm for short money!
Oh and I was carrying my Kahr PM45 all day with a 7-shot magazine beside my 5-shot in my Remora Mag Carrier. The carrier works like a charm, the Magazine works like a charm, and doesn’t alter the feel of the gun even with the extra mag hanging out (I get a full 3-fingers on the gun, so I don’t have to worry about squeezing the exposed mag body while shooting).
So yeah I’ll need to order another one of those so I can have two 7s to backup my 5+1 Pm45. That’s the nice part about semi-autos is you’re not married to just one-size mag. Meanwhile with a revolver, you’re packing 5,6, maybe 7, and 8 is pushing it, and that’s what you reload to. Even when I carried 6-shot speed strips to reload my J-frame I knew that getting those extra rounds into play was mostly wishful thinking.
