Off set a shitty gun tooning session with a productive live fire session today.
I'll chronicle the marvels of fine italian craftsmanship in another thread. That said, for as long as these fuckers at Tanfoglio have been making guns you'd think their quality would be better... My experience today thoroughly convinced me all the engineers and mechanics that could barely scrape a "D" average went into the firearms industry... It's 2017, who the fuck uses 'roll pins'? Even the Turkish made replicas have hard steel pins...
I didn't give a rats ass it was raining today - I tossed my shit in the truck and headed out as I wanted to reverse the slew of bad luck. After I sighted in my new front sight, I set to work with four aces @ 7 yards:
My best run was 7.98 HF, 4 alpha, time was 2.61, draw .94, reload 1.23
My first run was 7.01 HF, 3 alpha 1 charlie, time was 2.71, draw 1.06, reload 1.31
My average was 6.77 HF, 70% alpha, 2% bravo, 16% charlie, 11% delta, no mikes, avg draw 1.01, avg reload 1.28
My worst run was 5.17 HF, alpha, charlie, 2 delta, time was 2.51, draw was .94, reload was 1.22
For the past 3 months, virtually all of my dry fire is untimed. I'm more focused on feeling or what my sights are showing me vs. the timer. So when I started recording reloads today starting at 1.31 and dropping all the way down to 1.19, I was pretty surprised. I only had one flub that was 1.63 and many runs in the high 1.2's. So I am capable of some fast reloads, I"ll keep working the consistency. My grip could have been better as I flubbed it a few times with my slowest draw being 1.15; that said, i recorded .94 times 3 out of the 10 runs. I'll keep practicing to improve my consistency.
Next up was steel poppers at 12 yards (2 regular size and 3 minis):
Run 1 was 7.02 @ 8 shots, run 2 was 6.46 @ 8 shots, run 3 was 5.31 @ 7 shots, run 4 was 5.21 @ 6 shots, run 5 was 4.68 @ 6 shots, run 6 was 4.07 @ 5 shots.
Looks like my index, trigger pull and grip need work. Although I did have a new front sight, I should be more consistent.
Finally was Bill Drill at 15 yards:
My best run was 8.47 HF, 2.95 seconds, 1 alpha/5 charlie, draw 1.4
My average was 6.33 HF, avg time 3.03, avg, 29% alpha/44% charlie/22% delta/4% mike
My worst was 1.45 HF, 2.75 seconds, 2 charlie/3 delta/mike, draw 1.38
Confirmation of my grip and trigger control need more work.
