2020 RANGE DAY 3

I love it when I can make it to the range on a workday. There is something nice about having the whole range to yourself. I brought my S&W Model 64 and my Glock 23, and 100 rounds for each.

I love my S&W Model 64, and always have a great time shooting it. After my first twelve shots I already had one bullseye at 5 yards, and these are Birchwood Casey 6 Inch Targets, so all the hits would be head shots (if we were hunting zombies.

Model 64 Target

When it comes to the Glock 23 I am really trying to learn to love this weapon. It isn’t one I really “chose”. A buddy was in need and wanted to sell it, so I bought it from him. I put 100 rounds through it today, but just can’t get a grip that I like, which is one of the reasons I think my aim was a little out of wack.

My aim with the Glock is low and to the left, but the gun’s frame just wants to bite into my middle finger of my shooting hand where it wants to rub against the trigger guard. I think I’m trying to put too much hand on the grip, but its just feels so small in my hands. I think I can improve my comfort and aim if I bought some Grip Extenders, so I ordered some when I got home from the range. I’ll let you know how it goes once I install them and try them at the range.

I really want to enjoy shooting the Glock 23, I’m just not there yet.

When I was all done I swept up my brass, took down my targets, and happened to notice that the stand I was using was floppy. This wasn’t from me, but I did find it interesting to see how much of that two by three was blown out.

7/6/2020100Had the range all to myself!!!
6/27/2020100Every time we go shooting the wheel gun is always the one we run out of ammo for.
6/13/2020100First outing of 2020.
10/07/2016150This really is one of my favorites. Pulling back the hammer forces me to pause - which usually helps my aim.
09/04/201550Just a quick outing to start off our weekend.
05/09/2015150The .38 is clearly a fun gun to shoot. Everyone was waiting to shoot it and I only brought three boxes of ammo for it - and they went quick.
04/26/2015100Everyone loves the semi autos but for some reason they always keep reaching for the wheel gun too. There is just something about pulling back the hammer and firing with a good wheel gun.
04/25/2015100My son wanted to shoot the revolver so I took him out to the club. He had a ball.
03/28/2015200My brother went through all my 38 ammo! But it was worth it, he was hitting the target much better with the revolver. I don't think he likes the sites on my CZ or Glock.
02/08/2015100My first rounds with my new to me S&W Model 64.

11/21/202050The Glock 23 is a great little semi auto that is slowly growing on me.
10/31/2020100My son and I took turns with the Glock 23 today. He really liked the Glock, so I might need to do a paternity test.

09/06/2020100Spent a little bit of time at the range on this beautiful Labor Day Weekend.

6/27/2020100After figuring out how to sight with this it was fun to shoot.
10/07/201650The thing I'm starting to love about this Glock is how clean it shoots - and how easy it is to clean - because it doesn't seem to get that dirty.
09/04/201550Just a quick outing to start off our weekend.
05/09/2015150My youngest was funny when he was shooting this . I don't really feel the difference between the .40 and the 9mm, but he said he can really tell the difference.
04/26/2015100My buddy is going through a divorce and needed some cash. So I got a very nice gun that had barely any rounds down the barrel for half the retail price.
