Well, like most of you all I've been itching to get out plus I had two transfers come in (more on that in another thread) so i headed out to SGC and did a little shooting with small little 38 supers. The place was busy as heck but only 2 of us on the 32 lane range.

It's so quiet they are running without RO's -- that makes me a little scared as they have these two signs posted right near each other :confused:

Also a little tidbit about the sights on the sight integrated P365, maybe people can't hit the broad side of a barn with them, IDK.

Well, off to the good stuff

I haven't shot this little guy as much as I should have. In fact I haven't shot much 38 super at all as I have been having fun with the newer 9mm acwquistions.

But here's my little Sentinel Compact, not to be confused with a super sentinel.

It shoots great and I ran it out to 25 ft with the Underwood's and my "miss" is always low and I need to work on that.

The second gun that got worked today is my 38 super stealth, I had @Integrity Arms do the magwell and some other tweaks way back and then sent it to Wilson for an extreme dehorn and new finish. It's a soft shooter and feels good in the hand and with Tripp magazines I can carry 9+1 but I still have some failure to go into battery with the Underwood's about one every 50 rounds and I don't know if it just needs more break-in time. I sent it back to Wilson once and they couldn't reproduce the failure but tweaked the extractor and reamed the barrel.

I had only 2 issues today with 120 rounds, 36 Underwood's and the rest range ball. The FO front sight on this really POPS

I'd like the issues to be sorted out and make this my daily carry as it has good capacity, a magwell and has an alloy frame. I hate to send it back to Wilson but maybe that's my only choice. I'm gonna shoot it a lot in the next few weeks. Maybe a 1,000 rounds and then decide.

No issues with other brands of ammo? I think Underwood uses the rimless supercomp brass for all their loads but i don’t think that would be the particular issue. I hope you can figure it out.
