Sunday at the range

Well, after yesterdays fun at an IDPA match, I wanted to shoot again today, so I headed over to Elite Firearms Academy to throw some more lead down the range. Today, I decided to shoot my Taurus PT-809 9mm.

Had been a while since I last shot this gun, so I couldn't remember the aim point. First fifteen rounds were low, but worked their way up. After that, just about everything was in the 9, 10, and X rings with a nice big hole in the 10/X ring. Had a few over left in the 8 ring, but I guess I'm used to that by now. Seems like I was better on target with this gun once I had it down than with my M&P 9mm. Did get burned by one round today that lodged between my glasses and forehead. People watching must have thought I was doing a rain dance or something. Kept the gun downrange and finger out of the trigger guard, so at least I was dancing safely.

No pictures today. Didn't take my phone with me.

Well, that's it. Remember, shoot safe, shoot straight!


  1. John,

    Why did you not shoot the Bowling pins? It is great fun!

  2. By the time I realized you all were having a shoot, I had already used up all my rounds. That and having that shell burn my forehead from where it landed on my glasses kinda pulled the all the winds from my sail. Still hurts today.

  3. Yeah that hot brass thing sucks! I caught one on my forearm Saturday.

  4. Yeah, you should have seen me dancing at the shooting line trying to get that darn thing out. At least I had my finger off the trigger and the gun pointed down range. Tried to shake it out a time or two, finally had to reach up with weak hand and move my glasses so it would drop out. Nice little burn scar up there today. I call it my "war wound".
