Starting The Weekend With Smoke & Noise

Friday afternoon my son and I took a chance on finding an opening at the range after work. To our delight, not only was the weather relatively pleasant, there was an free bay. He was shooting the SIG P226, a gun he's grown quite fond of, while I wanted to get a few rounds down range with the P320 before shooting a match on Saturday morning.

Most of our time was spent at the 10 yard line, shooting "controlled pairs" at the body and head zones. (In the latest update to the range rules, multiple shots, up to two, are permitted.) It was also good to shoot from a holster after so many indoor range sessions.

We also spent a bit of time at the 20 yard line. I was quite happy with those strings, hitting 18 of 20 in the -0 zone. Moving closer we both got in some one-handed shooting, both weak and strong. 

It was a quick and relaxed outing, each of us shooting just 100 rounds. After the quick session, we were both more than ready to enjoy the delicious dinner Colleen had prepared, which I fear we may have devoured at a less than relaxed pace.
