Ran the BFM drill at 8 yards then the OFT qual slightly altered (shorter time because of no draw
Shocked at how well the new SA Vickers shot love this one it is well worth the asking MSRP. Nicely fit and shot drills clean many times today with it 👍many thanks to the member that sold it to me .
The Kc9 shot great same accuracy as my 5” guns on arrays and about 1 second slower on average .

Got my old rear end whupped at work this weekend.
Was too tired to go to bed, lol. May have something to do with the afternoon coffee I had at work....and another travel mug full of it for the relaxing drive home.

Tossed and turned last night....nerve pains running down my left arm something fierce. Even my dog was getting aggravated with my flopping around like a fish on the dock.

Snatched the memory foam pillow and tossed the unyielding monsta across the room....and reached over for the MyPIillow from my wife's side of the bed.....NEAR INSTANT RELIEF. Ghosts of disc surgery in my neck show up at times...and sometimes a pillow change is golden....sometimes it's moving my IWB carry gun from 4:00 to 2:00....or to OWB.

Getting older....and more ornery. Ain't complaining.....grateful for everyday and mighty grateful for my patient dog. She realized that her Momma's MyPillow was gonna do the trick....as soon as I got it under my head and settled down...she came over and plopped down against my ribs...her spot.

Two wonderful hours of sleep then the alarm clock did it's thing.



Already had magazines packed.....all I had to do was a grab the pistolas outa the safe and hit the road. Skipped coffee....skipped breakfast.


First shooter at the range. Gotta love it. Clean air.



Two main goals for today's session: dial in the 🔴 RMR I'd mounted on my HK VP9SK last Friday....and to run a pair of .38 Supers that needed shooting.


I also took a comped 2011 along.


Not lost on me was the Georgia connection of this HK VP9SK:
  • Heckler & Koch (Columbus, Georgia)
  • C & H Precision plate & sights (Richmond Hill, Georgia)
  • Norma 124gr 9mm (Savannah, Georgia)

The Berryville, Arkansas connection was also strong with the Nighthawks & the Wilson.





Piece of cake to install sights & then mount the plate on the optics-ready slide.















Super easy to adjust the Trijicon, simply used a 9mm case the perfectly fits the adjustment dial and click it into desired position.

Took a couple mags and then adjusted for the aggregate "group". Will get a more thorough bench rested dial in later on.

Standing, two paws, 10yds.....rapid fire Mozambiques.

See dot bounce, hear gun bark, mas rapido.
Zero complaints.

I even adjusted my grip slightly, and the little monsta actually slide locked open on empty. I don't know that I'll be able to trust a modified grip under stress, though. Gonna grip it and let it rip....and count on slap/racking fresh mags when appropriate.




I took a sip or three from my woke-a-cola (breakfast) and stashed the warm HK and broke out the next contestant on "See dot bounce, hear gun bark"....the comped Nighthawk.






Three 20rd mags & a 26rd mag emptied themselves before I knew it. I love the sound of multiple brass cases hitting the deck when the slide locks open on last round. Fun stuff. Makes me grin.

The heft of this beast combined with the comp, bull barrel weight location, favoritest trigger ever and the 🔴 allow it run stupid fast. The gun stays flat during recoil and returns to target like a good horse taking a drunk rider back home. Simply maintain grip and keep breaking the trigger.







Then went back to my 1911 roots with a pair chambered in .38Super.






A couple observations registered on my brain as I was underway:

* I ran the 1911s at the same pace I'd just run the two dot guns. They didn't stack up the holes like the HK & 2011, but they ran just as smooth and all hits were effective. They felt natural

* There was no comparison between the ease of use between the gold bead on the Nighthawk vs the green fiber optic on the Wilson. The bead was much easier to pick up and to track. When I first brought the Wilson up, had to turn on the bay's lights as it was dark with the the HK, 2011 & Nighthawk 2011....with the direct light hitting the front sight it was a as bright as an electronic sight.

Interesting.

Huge fan of gold bead front sights on my carry guns...second choice is the fiber optics.


The Hawk ran first. 70rds.





Wilson next. 60rds.









My only regret was not having more ammo & my Magula mag loader with me. I think I could have stayed there and shot them for a couple more hours.

Zero issues with any of the guns, mags, ammo or other.
I did note that it's time to replace the batteries in my Walkers muffs.



Time for another cup of java and some actual breakfast.

Well, technically yesterday, but I shot the local bowling pin match and had my best ever aggregate time of 16.18 seconds for 3 strings. 5 pins at 8 yards that all have to hit the ground before the timer stops.

I was using a new-to-me STI 2011 in .38 Super Comp launching 124 gr Montana Gold JHPs at 1400 feet per second.

Well, I'm now a fan of compensators on high velocity pistol rounds. The .38 Super Comp is awesome. It didn't feel or look like the dot moved when I was firing it. The only thing holding it back was the loose nut behind the wheel...

Been slacking on my range time since the move... so I snuck out for a quickie after work with the Staccato C...
Stopped by the TNT Gun Range, that place is pretty swanky... good times had!

First shots of the day, month, week... 8rds in each target at 10yds

Body at 10yds, and head at 15yds (target is misleading in this light, the bullseyes are on the backside)

Spent the rest of the session working on a few drills and some some strong/support hand reps at 7-10yds

How is that Vickers Master Class treating you? Such a great looking 1911!

It punches well above its price point I’m very happy with it it is a very accurate pistol very nicely fit don’t get me wrong it is no nighthawk or Wilson combat but it is very very nice for the price . 👍
