This morning I shot this woodchuck in my back yard. 17yds offhand with my Tussey Norinco 1911, 230gr FMJ. They all fall to ball. 😁

Ran my EDC pistol: Wilson X-Tac with Ryan Wilson high cut grip. Only 100 rounds today because of ammo prices.

I haven't done any live fire drills in over a month. I was afraid to see how badly my skills had atrophied. Turns out dry fire practice did a pretty good job of keeping me reasonably proficient.

I spent more time than usual on head shots. The drill was simple: draw, put one well placed shot in the head box, reholster. It doesn't eat up a lot of ammo, and you still get to practice a lot of the fundamentals.

Took these three 9mm pistols to the indoor range at noon

  • DW ECP
  • Sig P365x
  • Colt MKIV Series 70 Gov't

Used Fiocchi 115gr and shot at approx 7-10 yds.

Observations

Wow.. The muzzle blast/fireball out of that 3.1" Sig barrel was surprising! However, it sure can shoot straight and I have the dot sight dialed in. Shot one handed and two handed... with both eyes open. Love it. Will add this to my carry rotation after I make sure if cycles SD rounds. Mags are so stiff I couldn't get them fully loaded even with my uplula

The DW is everything I hoped for... I can see the bright orange ring (around the front night sight) easily and it will likely become the 1911 I'll carry the most. (Again... Only after I run some SD rds to ensure reliability). I'm very happy with it... The trigger, reset and overall performance of the gun plus great ergos make this one of my favorites already.

The older Colt (circa 1970-71) was every bit as accurate as its two partners today.

WWI GEWR 88. I threw a magazine down range to make sure it fired for the Kentucky shoot. I will let folks rock a war gun that was in both WWs and in the Turkey Army. Till the ammo runs out.

Fiocchi 115s are very snappy. Forgot about using them and switched from those 147 Speer rejects to Fiocchi 115s. Surprise surprise! ;)
