To the range

Postby carmen fovozzo » Wed Nov 15, 2017 10:35 am

Hate to admit that I have'nt been shooting since I don't know when.

My Keltec PMR-30 is going with me for the first time...I got about 20 rounds in the mags...could not do the 30.

My EDC G19 will also be used today...maybe 105 rounds...
Need new glasses.....new eyes..new hands...new ears....about the only thing I don't need is new finger nails.

The PMR-30 is awesome and fun to shoot....though costly..

I have a LaserMax guide rod on my 19 and when I turn that on I really see how unsteady I'm getting....sights are also blurry....

Maybe I should take up Bat Mitten....

THanks for all the repleys

It's come down to about 19 to 18 cents per round, bulk, online (before shipping) - that's actually not too bad, considering that at their height, they were going for as much as 35 cents per, pre-ship...and availability was horrible at that time, too.

I'm not sure what prices are like, locally, though.

Those lasers do that to all of us. Don't worry, accept the wobble and press, I bet you're right-on. :) I've never seen the late Pat Rogers shoot in real-life, but I've seen him demo in videos, and with how much that laser jumped all over the place, I'd swear that he'd have been off the paper - but that man was a good (to say the least) shot with a pistol, and those shots printed right in the bullseye.

....sights are also blurry....


Pat McNamara was adamant about not being able to see his handgun's sights anymore, without corrective lenses. He's definitely "right there" as a handgunner, too.

I thought Stonewall only allowed one round at a time for rifles?

PMR-30 is a handgun. Also, Stonewall's rule on one round at a time is for high powered rifles. Bring a .22LR or a pistol caliber carbine (like an AR in 9mm or TNW's ASR in 10mm) and you can fully load the magazine and also have the target at any distance. Usually bring the 20rd ones with me for the AR9 when I go to Stonewall. Their BASS match has also been allowing PCC this year (https://youtu.be/AC2ewZFTDlE).

Your welcome. :mrgreen:

As far as a laser, the last time I used one, I found that I was rock solid firing from the hip, instead of extending my arm out, as if using the iron sights. It was weird getting more accurate shot placement from that position than regular two handed. I even did a El Presidente drill only from the hip, rotating by body position only, like the turret of a tank. Had great results too. This was however near dusk, and not a practical real life exercise, just something interesting to try out once.
