Colt Combat Commander .45 ACP Range Review


(#1 target, above) 10 rounds Federal 230 gr HydraShok 21-feet (7-yards)

This was a range session from back on January 19, 2016.  I was unenthusiastic back then (as I am now)  about writing this review because my accuracy was ... well ... my accuracy was pretty much ... boring ... kinda my true average I guess.  It all was humbling but not humiliating.

Anyhoo, this pistol was purchased used; I blogged about it earlier HERE, HERE, and HERE.  This was my inaugural (and thus far my only) range session with it.  I do like the pistol.  The trigger is short and factory semi-sweet.  The little nub of a front sight is a bit of a challenge for my poor old eyes to focus on, but it is good enough.  If I am going to be a better shooter with it I need to shoot it more often.





(#2 target, above) 10 rounds S&B 230 gr fmj 30-feet (10-yards) 

After shooting the first target with hollow-point carry-ammo, I switched over to S&B FMJ ball ammo for the remainder of the session;  I highlighted the bullet holes to make them easier to see





(#3 target, above) 10 rounds S&B 230 gr fmj 45-feet (15-yards)

The bullet hole inside the red circle is an on-paper, in the black, MISS.

Just to further check pistol function, I set another target at 70-feet and blasted at it with near a full box of the FMJ ammo.

A total of 78-rounds of ammo was fired during this session.  There were ZERO-problems (of any kind) with the function of the pistol.  None.  It's a keeper.
