    Took the Carbonia repro and my SCG carry to the range today. I haven't shot as much the last 3 years and it shows.

    1st targer is the carry at 25ft rapid fire 2 hand standing. 2nd is the same with the Carbonia. I do pretty well as long as I focus and don't push the shot to the left with my trigger pull.... View attachment 222669 20190214_144822.jpg 20190214_150129.jpg 20190214_150135.jpg

    Sweet! Nothing like a good day at the range with a nice 1911!

    Pretty Colts.

    I need to force myself to go to an indoor range. Too much snow to find my spent brass outside....

    Just realized I only posted the SCG target. Here is the Carbonia one. 20190214_144822.jpg

    You put the bullets in the same place as the other gun. Hard to do. ;)

    My favorite target with mine was 7 rounds I shot at 15 yards at an indoor range years ago. I had shot 4 rounds. Then a friend came by and yelled at me so I put the pistol down while I talked with him. Living in the SW my hands were dry so I put some lotion on them while I was talking with him. After he left I picked up the pistol and found out a couple things. First the dinky little sights were hard to get back on in the rather dark indoor range. Second I could feel the pistol moving in my hand, thus found out why the MSH became grooved.

    Also the O1911, blue, or WMK ser. no. is hard to get a good picture of. Here is mine in the early morning sun on my back patio with my O1918, black, or WWI ser. no. pistol.
