11/18

Practice:
P226
50 rounds
19x
150 rounds

Observations:
25 yard drill, boy did the sig feel odd after spending this year shooting glocks. I didn’t do anything note worthy with it. Things went better with the 19, best run was 7X. I had a few strings with 4 or 5 X. I’m hoping for weather conducive for more practice over the holiday weekend, maybe set up some steel.

11/22

Practice:
640 J frame
100 rounds
19x
100 rounds
Gen3 19
50 rounds

Observations:
25 yard drill. I felt the need to celebrate the holiday with a little Revo action. Went 4 & 5X with it finished with a 3X SHO. I decided to try this drill with my carry pistol because it’s due for a cleaning anyway, best string was a 5X. I ended my time with the 19x, had mostly clean runs with a best of 6X. I also did a string with each gun on the long range plate, 2 for 10 with the j frame 4 for 10 with the 19x, and 2 for 10 with the regular 19.

11/23

Practice:
G30
40 rounds
19x
50 rounds

Observations:
Same 25 yard drill, couldn’t do better than 4X. I’m not sure what was my problem but I just couldn’t keep my trigger control under control. Today’s weather doesn’t look all that promising for going out and giving it another try.

11/25

Practice:
19x
150 rounds

Observations:
25 yard drill. What a waste of ammunition today, I couldn’t do anything well today. I think I need to shelve this drill for a while. I can’t think of another drill that the more I did it the worse I performed.

12/02

Practice:
Gen3 17
60 rounds
Gen4 17 with DPP
170 rounds

Observations:
25 yard drill, best with the CO gun was 9X with quite a few 6’s & 5’s. Gen3 best was 7X, the rest 5X & lower. I also set up 2 12” plates @ 25 yards and shot doubles back and forth to warm back up into speed vs high precision.

12/07

Practice:
G31
65 rounds
Gen3 17
75 rounds
19x
75 rounds

Observations:
Same 25 yard drill & a little long range plate. Best strings with the G31 8X & 7X. Best string with the Gen3 6X. Best string with the 19x was 6X. It was a little cool out at 20 degrees, but I couldn’t let a sunny calm day go to waste. After playing with the G31 I’m thinking of getting a KKM barrel for one of my 9mm’s. If I spent more time getting acclimated to how BLASTY the 357sig is 10X would be easy.

12/08

Practice:
G43
10 rounds
Gen3 17
50 rounds
19x
50 rounds

Observations:
25 yard drill. 3X with the G43, 8X with the 19x, and 7X with the Gen3.
I was testing out some new Everglades V2 115gr HP’s, so far I’m very impressed especially considering the price I got.
Finished of the session with 7 yard Bill drills with the 19x & Gen3. 1.7 to 1.78 clean. One sting with the 19x was 1.6 seconds but I started high on the target and climbed above the target by the last shot.

12/09

Practice:
Gen3 17
65 rounds
Gen4-DPP
65 rounds
19x
65 rounds

Observations:
25 yard drill, best stings 8X with some 5’s & 6’s. I was trying some new loads with Accurate #2, I haven’t played with this power in a few years and had forgotten how good it is. After that I set up an additional target @ 7 yards and ran strings starting at the 7 going back and forth to the 25 shooting doubles for a total of 10 shots. I was REALLY slow on the draw but was consistently in the 5.7 second range clean. I would like to be running this in about 4 seconds, and I think that’s attainable.

12/10

Practice:
Gen3 17
200 rounds
19x
200 rounds

Observations:
25 yard drill. 25/7 yard drill. Blake drill. I did two sessions today the Am was the longer range stuff, nothing really notable. The PM session was mainly Blake drills from the low ready, best was 1.86 seconds but most 2 to 2.2 range. I had one string at 1.64 but the hits kinda sucked. I was using up some old 130+ PF 147’s, I definitely like my 124gr loads better (in the Glocks)

12/12

Practice:
Gen4- DPP
100 rounds

Observations:
25 yard drill, 50 yard plate. I didn’t do anything impressive today, a few 4 & 5X. I had one of the mountings screws for the dot back out again, I’m going to try and get new ones tomorrow.

12/13

Testing:
Gen4 17
40 rounds

Observations:
I couldn’t get the correct screws locally so I took off the DPP and put a set of Dawson sights on for now. I was testing some 135gr BB’s with Accurate #2. It was too windy to get good accuracy results at 25 yards, but function was good. I really prefer the Gen3 and Gen5. I’m contemplating completely ditching this pistol and getting the two GSSF Gen3 17’s (that should be here by now!) milled for dots.

12/14

Practice:
Gen4
50 rounds

Observations:
Just a quick little practice, mainly 25 yard drill. Best was 6X. I spent the majority of my time putting new lumber in my target stands, they were pretty beat.

12/16

Practice:
Gen5 17
200 rounds

Observations:
I built a 4” swinging plate and set it up @ 25 yards..... yikes, that ended up being a little too frustrating. Next I moved it to 15 yards and continued 10 rounds strings, but never made a clean run. Finished the day off with a few strings at the long range plate, best was 6 for 10.
