Shot my Glock today

Great shooting, as always, TGR, but mostly want to say that I'm thrilled you got out to do some shooting.

As for the AR with the brakes, guess that's a fact of life, these days. I don't even like them at our outdoor range, but I see them more and more, now. Can't imagine them in an indoor range. Of course, they're probably not too thrilled about standing next to me when I shoot the big magnums, either.

LOLOL Aww TGr, look at that target, you just hurt their feeling thats all. They could have had Acogs for eyes & still not shot as accurate as you. Good on you! Great shooting & Happy new year to you.

Nice shootin, Tx!
Next time, I'd carry along a short barreled magnum, just to annoy them.
That might even run'em off to a rifle range, where they ort'a been in the first place.

The last time I shot this gun was about a year ago when I put the TruGlo sights on it and the stainless guide rod with 17 lbs spring . These are 180 jacket HP FBI loads and my CCW ammo . The lead and jacket bullets both have the same POI which makes practice a piece of cake if the AR are not there and NO sight change or adjustment needed .

As someone who shoots only at indoor ranges, I can tell you that some of the AR's with muzzle brakes are way, way, louder than any 44 Magnum. There comes a point where a gun is just not safe to be shot indoors, because hearing protection will not help when the shock wave is traveling through your skull from all directions. No reason to put a brake on a 5.56 AR to begin with in my opinion. Not much you can really do about it though. Leave the range or bear it. I shoot my AR indoors, but no muzzle brake on it. Doesn't seem terribly loud to the shooter, but I know it's worse in the adjacent lanes.

Very nice shooting TGR & I'm glad you got out.

I need to get out myself, but I am near the end of several home projects.

YES ..... both the jacket and cast are 180 gr so I get the same recoil and POI . .

I like all my CCW guns to shoot the heaviest bullets in that caliber that will fly around 1000 FPS so hollow points expand . The 185 gr HP in 45ACP is the magic number for me in my 1911 . .

I just leave the range . They walk past a 100 yd or less range to get to the pistol range . They scope a AR and shoot it under 25 YDS . WHY .......... They come with over 15 mags loaded 30 rds in each mag . There is NO rapid on the range so there is no break in there shooting . Worse part is I looked at there target and if I get in a gun fight I hope it is one of those scoped AR shooters .

Now you know why they shoot under 25 because at 100 they would be looking at a blank target and wondering where all the bullets they shot went.

I've asked myself the same thing many, many times, TGR. Honestly see guys shooting their ARs a lot at 25 yards, even sometimes at shorter distances at our pistol range. Not putting down the gun or the people that shoot them because I don't know squat about the shooting platform, but I'm not nosy enough to go ask them when I see them. Oh, well.

The Glock 19 is rendered in bronze, twice, in a lifesize statue here. It depicts an 'officer down' with another officer kneeling over him. Both Glocks are holstered. Sits in front of the main police building.

I shoot it at 25 yds because that's as far as the range goes. Kind of limits what I can really do with the gun, which is why I have only 500 rounds through it in the nearly a year that I've owned it. Usually I just shoot one 30 rd mag of 5 shot and 10 shot bench rested groups. I can hit about 1/2" groups with my crude bench rest.

I wouldn't a problem with you shooting it at your range since they don't have another range to shoot on , But at my range they must walk passed the 100 yd max range to get to the indoor pistol range .

I understand, Shaky. As with TGR, though, our range is seldom crowded and every station has the option for shooting at 50 yards and one at 200 yards. I suspect these 25 yard shooters are sighting in, most of the time. At least I'd like to think so.

These guys are NOT sighting there guns . It don't take 15 mag loaded with 30 rds in each mag to sight in . Plus in less then 50 steps they can be on the 100 yds range which has 50 , 75 and 100 frames set up to shoot . There is NO 25 yd target or less target frames on that range you must go to pistol range to get 25 yd or less , which has 50 yds but NO frames set up out that far . You must bring your own frames for 50 yds shooting on the indoor pistol range .

This range is 3 mile from my house . The next range is less then 7 mile from my house but the parking lot is too far for me to walk too there ranges to shoot .

You're probably right, TGR. I just try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt as much as I can. I'm just an old softie.
