Vacation: Day 6

Today I shot some shit (and drank a beer)

Checking the log book, I hadn’t shot ANYTHING since the first week of February !!

Went out for a quick shoot at my brother’s range on a nice hot summer day.

I went out a few days earlier to find some 380 ammo and what I was able to find was not what I wanted.  I wanted to do a quick test and see if it was accurate for my gun (Smith & Wesson 380 EZ)

10 rounds on the left for “Winchester 95 grain full metal jacket flat nose”.  On the right, “Browning 95 grain full metal jacket flat nose”.  If you know who Paul Harrell is, you’ll know that when he lists ammo specs, it’s just a single line !!!

OK, other than I need to adjust my sights a little, it looks like both brands of ammo are consistent.  The black circles are 4″s.

I need to do this test with my hollow points that’s my carry ammo but those are about $1.00 each !! But it needs to be done.

Everyone can stand at a firing line and shoot little groups.  Let’s kick up the training a little and try shooting while advancing on your target.  I only do this once in a while but it’s good to do and it’s fun.  You can explore my yootube channel if you want to see shooting in the woods which is lots of fun and I would hope it helps with the training too !  4 rounds in the first mag and 8 in the reload.

I goofed up and shot the target with a mag from my Beretta M9 22 so there are some extra holes.  The paper size is 11X17 for perspective.  I think I will do this drill more often.

    We own a 380EZ. We tested both the Magtech and Sig hollow points, and found both brands to feed reliably and shoot accurately. I can’t say how hard they hit (and the target was silent about that), but both rounds also felt and sounded authoritative enough.

      I love my EZ !! I should just spend the $20-$25 and test some hollow points for carry. I love watching Paul Harrell’s yootube channel and he tests a lot of ammo. Surprising to see that many brands fail to expand very well. A lot of that has to do with the gun as well which is why I always want at least a 3″ barrel.
      Thanks for stopping by !!
