    25m using a Ruger. I think they are ISSF targets.

    Bloody cold day at the range today. Someone else had the Ruger today so used a Hammereli. I think it was a good change. Fired 49 rounds, only put 5 out of the black. Name:  image.jpg

    Pop around the back next time and have a play on some IPSC targets. Happy for you to have a shoot with my 40

    Got my first go with a 9mm today. I used a Glock 17, the trigger is going to get a bit of getting used to. Didn't shoot as well is with the hammerli.

    Yep by 2 people. Now I know why people don't really like glocks, the trigger felt quite mushy.

    Glock to me is purely a practical pistol, if I needed a pistol for real world stuff I wouldn't go past one, pretty hard to beat. If I wanted a pistol for competition shooting I'd probably look at something else.

    Depends on the competition.

    Nothing wrong with a glock in ipsc, there aren't many other guns that you can get up and running with as cheaply, and if Banana is who I think he is then he's proof that you can be very competitive with one.

    That said I would still take my standard gun over a glock any day of the week, but that's a whole different story.

    Yep I have no doubt who banana is and being a GM at his age with a Glock is proof they are more than suitable.(for him at least)
    God help us if he gets a supposed more suitable gun😆

    Glad I am in standard division as well.

    Managed to get the CZ 75 shadow tonight. Shot. A bit better than with the Glock. I was surprised how long and soft the first stage of he trigger was. With the Glock I put 18 in the black, with the CZ I managed 24 in the black.

    Got my 9mm cone of fire signed off this morning. I used a Gen 4 Glock 17. Holy crap what a heavy trigger. When I pulled the trigger the first time I thought the safety was on, then remembered Glocks don't have one. Got use to it in the end. Shot it better than the previous Glock but not as well as the CZ.
