Testing, Testing....


Status:  Testing complete

Comments:  Any fails with new Glock are purely user error.  Yeah boy!

A quick dash to range between downpours because not playing with new toy any longer was NOT acceptable. Accuweather postulated that there was going to be a brief break in downpours around noon, so much watching of radar this morning, a call to Murphy's Law, who reminded me that the bad guys come out in the rain, and a surprised look on face of gent on desk at the range.  ML mostly did some coaching with me so I will start with good habits rather than have to break bad ones later - thanks, dude.  And some competition on the metal targets showed me how a little pressure and distraction affect my aim.  Not to mention glasses fogging up...

Next step, reloading set-up.

  4. Sounds like a good day. I've been at the range in heavy downpours and in snow. It's not always going to be a sunny day so might as well keep shooting. You really do get a different perspective with wet hands and water running down your face. Be safe and train well!

    Cheers.

    1. And then there's the glasses, although at least the cap brim helps keep the rain off them. But they fog.
