I had a great day today! I took my daughter (it's her birthday) to the range with me today. I ttok the HP .380, the C-9 the PA-63, and the Glenfield marlin 6079. First off, I have to say that I was disappointed with my first range experience with the c9 last week. It jammed every 4th round in the magazine. Thanks to the expert advice I received from several members on this forum, I cleaned the feed ramp, gave it just a teeny bit of oil, and changed out the mag for a mag that had some mileage on it (one of the .380mags) and today it ate everything I fed it., which was 115WWB FMJ and 147gr WWB JHP (I love that round). It didn't jam once. It is now my favorite pistol of all the ones I've got. Very little reoil, and a good center mass grouping. I feel totally confident using the c9 for SD now. It just needed a little TLC. Oh, please excuse the crappy cell phone video. Video included: I also took the PA-63, chambered for the 9x18 makarov. I also had a lot of problems with it last week. It would eat the JHP but not the FMJ. Thanks to some more expert advice, most notably PS, I took it apart to shoot some pictures, and actually dsicovered it was nasty inside. A little cleaning and some light oil, and today it ate evrything I fed it, which was 94gr Silver Bear JHP and 100gr Wolf FMJ. It has a heck of a kick though. After three magazines through it, the thick fleshy pad between my index finger and thumb was crying unlce, but since its my favorite ccw due to its size, my thick fleshy pad will just have to get over it. It also provided excellent COM groupings. (No video of that yet) Then the refined lady of my gun collection, the Glenfield marlin 22. Man, she was a pleasure to shoot. I got 50 rounds for 11.00 at Wally World, so i can just shoot till I fall over. And with the tubular magazine holding 15 rounds of Remington High Velocity GOoden Bullet Hollow Points, it does what it was amde to do. No james, no FTE's. Just clean fun shootin'. Video: But let me tell you. I've saved the best for last! There are days as a parent where I just bust (nor burst) BUST with pride watching my daughter take up a family tradition. Today was her first time ever firing a firearm. She fired the 22 from a bench, through a scope, but she loved every minute of it. She wants to go back every time I go. You could read a newspaper from the glow. Listening to her give range commands, and even correct me...man! I love that kid! Here's video of her shooting: Oh, and I want to show you a picture of her first grouping. Yes, she was shooting from a table, but this was her first time ever to fire a weapon of any kind: I was talking to the Rangemaster after our shoot today, and after I join the NRa so I can get my NRA discount, I am going to join the shooting sports association and take the rangemaster training for that range. That's going to be very exciting. Anyway, it's been a good day.
