Glock 19 Gen4 range session at Caliber Gun Range in Waukegan, Illinois
It has been over five-months since I last went shooting.
Fifteen-months have come and gone since I last did a range session with this Generation-4 Glock 19. (Cough), ahem, well, yeah I guess it has been a while. Life and laziness set my priorities.
I set modest goals and limits for this refresher session.
1) Be safe and have fun
3) Work on fundamentals, focus, and my trigger reset.
4) String the shots together as fast as accuracy and range etiquette allows.
5) Keep all shots inside the 9-ring or better.
6) Limit my old aching hands to firing 45-rounds (3-magazines) of +P+ carry ammo.
Caliber Gun Range (formerly known as GTR Sporting Club) in Waukegan was today's choice.
15-feet are the head shots
21-feet are the chest shots
30-feet are the center-of-mass shots
At 15-feet and 21-feet I am about equal now to what I was shooting then.
At 30-feet is where my rustiness shows the most.
Practice makes better, not perfect.
