Because why not? Only six rounds left the black, which is roughly in line with my regular scoring percentage. Lots of 10-ring hits as well. Naturally, this was freehand at 25 yards with the Ruger 22/45 and American Eagle 40 grain ammunition.
I wanted to try this to see how long my concentration would hold out. It’s turning out to be much easier for me to shoot a good score with the 22/45 than the Glock 19, but it still requires my full attention to keep them in the 9-ring at 25 yards.
Everything is so pure with this pistol. I can get a perfect grip, and a perfect sight picture, and execute a perfect trigger press, and have it all work correctly much easier than trying with the Glock. Not quite sure what the difference is yet.
Also to note: I’ve got a pretty decent zero.
I did experience two failures to eject. The bolt just didn’t come back, which made me clear the gun and check for squibs. All was fine, though. I’ll keep an eye on it, but I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come. Fighting low powered ammo for 5,000 rounds doesn’t sound fun… but I guess those are the risks you take when you bite off that much of a new (to me) brand at a time.
