Sunday at the range

Ok, so put 150 rounds down range today. I did 50 warmup rounds with my S&W 22A as head shots on a B27 target at 10 yards. No issues there. All rounds in the head and had decent grouping. All rounds were shot with a goal of less than 1 second a round and I pretty much felt like I maintained that.

I next put 50 rounds of the USA Ammo that I bought through my S&W Military and Police 9mm. Forty-five of the rounds were in the 9 ring or better with only 5 in the 8 ring. Again, all shots were taken with a goal of less than 1 second per round and I felt like I was right there.

The last 50 rounds were again USA Ammo which I shot through my Taurus PT-92. For these, I put up a small orange target between the 7 and 8 on the B27 target and used that to focus on. Seems my groupings were better again with the PT-92 than the M&P 9mm. I'm guessing it's because the PT-92 is slightly heavier. The only problem with the 92 is that the grip seems short and my off hand pinkie finger hangs off the bottom, so that doesn't feel real comfortable.

As you can see, I'm still predominantly left in my groupings, so still have a lot of work to do there. Anyway, the USA Ammo 9mm shot flawlessly. No failures to fire, eject, or feed. Not smokey at all, but I did wind up with a lot of burnt powder on my arms and it was a bit dirtier than the PMC Bronze 9mm I shot. Still, for getting it less than $10 a box, I'll take the extra time to clean my guns. Now that I'm a customer with USA Ammo, I've received two coupons for half off shipping. Next time, I'll probably order 1000 rounds and including half off shipping, get them for less than $9 a box.

Shoulder doesn't hurt near as much after this 150 rounds, so that's definitely a plus. I do think I need to stop doing shoulder exercises for a while though to see if it will help reduce the aching further. Seems like my posterior deltoid really aches for about two days after doing those exercises. Maybe if I stop completely doing them for another month or so, I'll be back to normal.

That's it for me. Remember, shoot safe, shoot straight!
