    I have not been to the range in months, between work and remodeling various rooms of our home, It is just hard to get away. Yesterday I told myself I need to go! I have too many guns I have not shot.
    I packed up my North American arms .380, H&K Mark 23 and Wilson Combat X-Tac

    First was the .380, a very well built gun that fits in my front pocket with a holster I already owned. Fired a couple mags of Self Defense Ammo and hit paper every shot @ 30 feet

    Then came the Mark 23, this thing is HUGE, very impressive hunk a hunk of gun, yes I need more practice with it.

    And then it happened........the Wilson Combat X-tac 9mm, I LOVE how this gun feels in my hand. This is my first full size semi custom 9mm 1911 and now I AM HOOkED!

    My FIRST shot was in the center, very soft to shoot and what I loved is that with that little recoil I can kind of tell what I am doing wrong, if that makes sense.

    Nice trio! Variety is the spice of life, but yup can't beat a good 1911.

    Can’t say I like the looks of the X-Tac as much as traditional checkering but it sure gives fantastic purchase.

    I love that Mk23, they are quite impressive in hand. And I am with you on the 9mm 1911, I am yet to find anything I enjoy shooting more.
