As the thread title says, I took my 45 JHP to the range for the first time, today, and it is a reliable and accurate pistol. The unusual contours and balance of the pistol took some getting used to as I did extensive dry fire with snap caps in my living room, but at the range, it turned out to be a very comfortable pistol to shoot. The RSO out there walked up to my bench as I set the pistol out, looking to see what I'd be shooting. I told him not to laugh, and he politely said that he no intention of doing so. After a little conversation about the roles that I thought it could fill in my collection as other shooters finished setting up their targets, he finally called the range hot. I had no idea where its sights were zeroed from the factory, so I kept the target at 7 yards for my first box of ammo. As I touched off the first five rounds of PMC Bronze 230-grain FMJ, I was delighted to see them group within less than two inches, although they were high. At least the windage was on. I failed to bring the instructions with me, so I made a couple of elevation screw turns in the wrong direction. After figuring out which way to turn it, though, I finally got the elevation right. The process resulted in the vertical string shown in the attached picture. With the zeroing complete and well confirmed, I put five rounds into the target's head area as quickly as I could without incurring the RSO's attentions beyond his periodic admiring glances at my target. It was funny to hear him mention to another shooter, a few benches over, that I was shooting a Hi Point. When the other guy looked over, he said, "Before you laugh, take a look at his target." I enjoyed a certain amount of pleasure as his eyes widened with surprise at what he saw. With the first 50 trouble-free rounds downrange, I waited until the next cease fire so that I could move my target stand to the 25-Yard mark. The attached picture shows a neat perspective from the bench. The other picture shows what the 100 trouble-free rounds of PPU 230-grain FMJ did to a 12-inch circle. I took only minimal care with my trigger technique, so the group is a bit spread out, but based on the gaping hole in the middle, it is readily apparent that the pistol's accuracy is inherently excellent. The pistol made an overall great impression on me, in spite of the very minor shortfalls in total refinement. The trigger's break was less than clean, and the reset was not very palpable, but the light weight certainly made up for it. Meanwhile, the weight of the slide makes for a very mild recoil impulse. The magazine was easy to load all the way to its nine-round capacity, although the slide did show a tendency to need a little help when chambering that first round, probably due to upward pressure from the magazine spring compression. None of those characteristics adversely impacted the 45 JHP's shootability in the least. Quite frankly, I had a good feeling about it with each round fired. What a fun time! For a pistol that cost $161 out the door, it is an amazingly fun toy for the range, while its demonstrated accuracy and reliable functioning showed it to be something that I would have no issues relying upon in an emergency. This thing is going to make a lot more trips to the range in the near future. I can't wait until I get permission to get the carbine to go with it.
