    Range dates are the best dates. We try to do dinner and the range on rare times we have a babysitter.

    We usually go every Saturday. Didn't do much in January due to me dealing with sciatica (hard to stand in place), plus we both caught head colds.

    It was a terrific day at the New Holland (https://www.nhrpc.org/) range today. Weather was in the 45-50 degree range with little to no wind. I brought a rifle (LWRC M6IC-SPR with a 14.7" 1x7 twist barrel in 5.56mm) and a pistol (Sig P210 in 9mm).

    Although I purchased the rifle at auction for about 1/2 of retail (brand-spanking new in box, sealed in air-tight original package), I added a few things:

    1. Vortex Strike Eagle 1-8x24 scope and their extended scope mount.
    2. Geissele "High Speed National Match" trigger which the Missus' had sitting in her "extra parts" box

    Last week, I had zeroed the scope at 50 yds but I didn't have the new trigger installed. The one that came with the rifle was militarily "clunky", as it was supposed to be. The new combo made quite a difference today. I shot two ten shot groups: the first to verify a reasonable "zero" at 50 yds. (a .67" ten shot group), and the second at 100 yds. to get my "hold under" of about 2-2.25" at the 100 yd. distance due to the 50 yd. "zero" (a 1.74" ten shot group which included a floater at 3 o'clock - without the floater it would have been a 1.28" group at 100 yds).

    Oh well...

    Not too great, but not too bad for me. With more time behind the rifle, I'm sure the groups will get smaller...

    Then took it to the long range, proned out, and seriously banged steel at 200, 300, and 400 yds when I ran out of ammo.

    What really surprised me is that the 5.56 ammo I used were my own reloads from 2010 and just functioned flawlessly. My load data is on the target...

    Moved over to the pistol range and let loose about 112 rnds at steel from 10-20 yd shooting positions. That Sig P210 could eat everything - from 147 PC bullets, to 125 FMJ bullets, to 122 cast bullets. All reloads functioned properly.

    And just a note to those who sometimes have to face the arduous task of periodically removing lead from your pistol barrel: my final mag of the day has always been FMJ bullets, no matter the caliber I'm shooting. They do a real good job of "taking the lead out..." and make clean-up a breeze (relatively speaking)...

    Just remember, the worst day at the range is better than the best day working!

    Beautiful day to get out. Tool the new Beretta APX carry, new Ruger 57 and my converted Glock 17 22 tcm9r.
    Beretta and Ruger shot flawlessly. Really liked both and impressed with the feel and accuracy of the APX. Might go into carry rotation.
    The 22 tcm9r not so much Light strikes on 75% of the rounds - very frustrating. I didn't have an issue with the PD trade Glock 17 with 9mm rounds, but you can see off center light strikes on the 22 tcm9r. Should have brought another G17 with me but didn't - so will have to try again.

    Remembered why I like the Beretta 92 today. The shop/range has a Elite LTT for a decent price atm too. This could get expensive by the end of the week.

    Did my duty of social distancing and went to the range alone today All 4 shot well including the full auto BB gun - lol. I like the CZ 2075D Rami but wish the trigger wasn't so curved/hooked. Reminds me of my Sig 290 - makes it a bit uncomfortable on the trigger finger. The S&W tactical 9 gen 3 a beauty as expected. And the 2340 357 Sig really barks The full auto BB guns a hoot - need to take the full auto AR one out next!

    You could get a Cajun gunworks trigger for the rami I believe. Might be a little better
