Another Saturday at the range.

Well, just like all the past times at the range, stayed at 10 yards at Elite Training Academy here in Monroe, NC. I like Elite as it's close to home and has 12 bays, so there are usually a couple open with no waiting. I put up another B27 target and ran 50 rounds of .22lr at the head of the target which can be seen below.
 As you can see, I'm still a bit left, but getting better and having decent groupings. Next I ran 90 rounds of re-manufactured 9mm rounds through my M&P. My first ten rounds had 7 in the 9, 0 and X rings and 3 in the 8 ring to the left. Yep, still left. I didn't have any issues with my slide not locking back today. I tried not jamming my hand right up to the top of the grip. This seems to have fixed the slide lock issue and appears to have helped me not be quite as left as I have been in the past. You can see my 90 rounds in this photo.
You can see two rounds high up in the 8 ring. These were two "accidental" double tap second shots. I'm not releasing the trigger all the way, trying to find the reset point and would up with those two firing off as the muzzle was still rising. Still left, but working my way to the right. Tried harder to just use the middle of the pad of my trigger finger as well, so hopefully that will get me pointed in the right direction.

Won't have a range report next week as I'll be taking the NC Concealed Carry class on Sunday. I'll post a brief and some pictures of my target once done and let you all know how I did in class. Hopefully by the end of September, I'll have my concealed carry permit.

That's it for today. Remember, shoot safe, shoot straight.
