So I finally decided to test myself today and the first thing I find out is I only have a 30 yard space where I can safely shoot in my backyard. I set up a good old silhouette target and tested 2 sidearms: Gun 1 is my most trusted and has thousands of rounds through it in competition. It is one of my 2 carry choices.
Gun 2 is a recently built frankengun and this would be the second mag I put through it. Ammo was some Turkish steel cased ball, 115 grs.
My first shot was at 30 yards unsupported. My second shot was 30 yards supported. The rest of the shots were advancing slowly and shooting. A couple of shots I paused and stopped somewhere at 10 yards.
And the final nail in the coffin: I may have shot less than a box of 9mm in the last 3 months. I am so rusty, not even Naval Jelly and a brush wire can help me.
Here is target with Gun 1:
I find funny that I can shoot “better” on the move. It must be all the years shooting IDPA.
Final analysis: I need serious range time. I suck.
SHOOTING IS A PERISHABLE SKILL
