Bang Tink

My favorite shooting range is beginning steel matches this summer. Fun shoots the rest of the year, and then they begin steel in earnest for points next year.

I found this out the past weekend as I was shooting in one bay, and heard the tell tale "Bang Tink" from down the way a bit. I wandered over... and it turns out they were just working out the set up and details, in preparation for this coming weekend.

Luckily... I had fifty rounds of newly cast lead bullet target loads with me, and was carrying my M+P in it's usual tight CCW holster. I ran from 4.5 seconds to 6 seconds, hitting five targets after a draw. Not lightning fast, but okay. I'll surely be trying again next month, with my Commander and a holster more fitting to competition.

I do believe I will have to step up the pace on loading lead bullet pistol ammo!
