After running my WEDC carbine and belt a bit I’ve recognized some shortcomings of what I initially setup. So I’ve opted for an HSG Slim Sure Grip pad over the Micro. Also ditched the FastMags for HSG taco mag pouches. Much more stable platform and easier manipulation. Going with the Stormrider Gear Warlord belt here for easy fit over whatever happens to be on my pants belt at the time.
I’m happy that Twitter friend @mannymacfly accepted my invitation this past Saturday to join me for some shooting at Proactive Defense. It was great finally meeting Manny and we had a good time doing some pistol and AR drills and Manny tested out his new AR pistol build. Nice one!
Due to a couple of classes that morning, we were relegated to the short bay, but we managed to get in some mag-exchange and multi-target drills. So glad you came, Manny! Looking forward to next time.
Spent last night at Proactive Defense for Drills Night. We started with dry manipulations as the sun was setting. When it got completely dark, we started live-fire drills: manipulations and accuracy drills in the dark, using our weapons lights while firing (only). It was a beautiful night with a great bunch of folks.
Shot the Sig P320 Carry model today for the first time, for an upcoming review. I’ll be shooting it all month to get a thorough impression of this promising gun and seemingly fantastic platform.
My latest AR-15 build. The lower receiver is an “A Salt Rifle” model from Texas Black Rifle Company.
Spent the morning with my buds J.T., Patrick, and Preston at the rifle range. Shot my AR10 .308 and the Remington 700P .300 WinMag. Great day.
Above: What a collection of rogues I had to hang out with.
Above: I’m lining up my shots at 200 yards.
Below: My first 3 shots at 200 yards. I’ll take it. We had a slight breeze from right to left.
What a beautiful day!
My Armi Galesi XVI (1960) is a cool little mouse gun, chambered in .25 ACP. Picked it up on a whim because it was in such good condition.
Got a bubble level for my long-range Remington 700 in .300 WinMag. Shooting level is vital to accuracy. I can see this out of my left eye when lining up. Easy reference. We’ll see this weekend if it helps!
Spent the morning working move-draw-shoot drills from concealment today. At 15 yards I’m averaging 1.34 seconds for consistent half-A-zone hits. At 10 yards, I’m hovering around 1.15 seconds. Had a couple at 1.07 today (w/o the move off the X).
I carry my Glock 19 as deep as my holster will go, so I really have to horse the gun out of my pants with little more than thumb and pinky. If I carried with the full grip exposed above my belt I’d want my times to be a bit faster. As it is I’m pretty happy with these times from concealment.
