2nd time shooting
Mon Oct 30 11:35:15 EST 2000
Yesterday, Sunday, I went shooting for the second time. This time with Bill
. The 1st time I decided between
9mm and .45 (decided on .45). This time I wanted to decide between
, Sig 245
, and Glock 30 or 36
. I mostly already had
my mind made up on the Kimber, but wanted to make sure. I didn't
change my mind. I want a Kimber Compact, in black steel. Look at
this beautiful blue Kimber
basically the same as the one I want, except I want black, 1" shorter,
and 1 less round capacity. They didn't have the Kimber Compact, but
they had a full size.
I shot well again. I have a target here that I shot at 7 yards -
8 rounds, 7 went in the bullseye, one just outside it.
Bill and I shot the Kimber for about a half hour, and then the sig for
about 15 minutes. The Kimber felt a lot better in my hands. The Kimber
is a single action - which means that pulling the trigger doesn't pull
the hammer back, it just releases it. The sig, like most modern autos,
is double-action, which means that it is capable of pulling the hammer
back when you pull the trigger. Which means you have to pull the trigger
a lot farther, and the resistance changes a couple times. Long pulls and
resistance changes totally screw me up, and I shoot a lot less accurately.
The Kimber... well, it did exactly what I wanted. And the hammer is cocked automatically anyway.
I asked to see the Glock 30 (slimline, only single stack glock makes).
I didn't like it. It didn't feel right. And it is half made of plastic.
And all blocky. I decided to not bother shooting it. I'm still kicking
myself for not trying the Glock .40 when I had the opportunity to do so for free.
