    Greetings and salutations. Saw a link on another forum and thought I'd give 1911addicts a shot. New to 1911s but not handguns, and it's become my favorite. In fact, I'm leaving for the range in a few minutes to put some much needed holes in paper via my SR1911.

    Come back with a range report on the SR1911.
    Seems like they are hard to get right now.

    My range report is rather embarrassing. It's been too long since my last trip to the range, and it showed today. I started out shooting Hornady XTP +P (9096) 230 gr JHP (which was my first time shooting this round), followed by Federal (AE45A2) 230 gr FMJ, all at 15 yards. At first my groupings were crap, many shots were low. Once I settled down my accuracy improved...a LOT.

    Bottom line the gun performed flawlessly, the shooter did not. Moral of the story? Practice, practice, PRACTICE!

    Indeed.. Any day shooting in which nothing breaks and nobody get's hurt is a good day. My style of shooting is volley fire (100 rounds at 2 second intervals).. some call it "suppressive fire".. LOL.. Some days my 25 yard targets look like somebody took a shot gun to them.. LOL.. I call those my therapy days. I'm shooting for relaxation and ritual. Every now and again I'll walk up to the lane, mount the target and run it downrange, stack my magazines on the lane table, get out my hand towel and wipe off my hands, center my Springfield cap, get my eyeglasses adjusted properly, snug down my ears, adjust the volume, take a test sight picture, slam a magazine, slingshot, sight picture and the dance begins. Everything shifts to slow motion and I'm in the zone.. It's like some weird flashback where the world stands still with brass bouncing everywhere. I seem to have tunnel vision and all I see is a cone toward the target, an occasional flash, a puff of smoke and the paper move. The only respite is to drop a mag, slam another, slingshot the slide and the rhythm begins again. Suddenly it's over.. The pistol is hot enough to burn your hand, the lane table is strewn with empty magazines and I'm standing in brass. More often than not in silence..... Priceless.. Cheers.. Ron

    Good to see you ME. I agree with Quack, a bad day of shooting beats most things. Glad to hear you are diggin' the SR1911. Seems to be a great gun from everthing I hear.
