A Busy Weekend Planned

EAA Elite Gold Team 9mm. race gun

Man, where did the week go? It seems like it was Monday only a day ago!

Yesterday afternoon we had another work party at the CWSA range, and we replaced all of the 2 by 4's and plywood on all of the target stands on the 75 yard range.

After the work was done, LouG (AKA MAD GUN) and I shot a few different handguns for entries in the e-Postal handgun match closing this Monday night. (Get your entries shot and in ASAP!) After getting our match targets shot, Lou dragged out his brand new bright shiny EAA Elite Gold Team 9mm. race gun, complete with red dot sight. What a beautiful piece of equipment. I had no trouble at all holding a 3" group at ten yards rapid fire, and by rapid fire I'm not talking about a shot every few seconds, I'm talking about two to three shots PER second. The trigger was factory set at around three pounds, I think, and it was nice and crisp with no creep at all. It feels kind of odd in your hand, not bad, just different. Sure does shoot nice, though....

I was busy with work stuff most of today, but KeeWee and I got away for a bit to go pick up some plants from a friend of ours. This evening I need to make sure everything is cleaned and lubed and ready to go for the falling plate match tomorrow. Sunday will be a Steel Challenge match, unless it rains, then it will be another falling plate match.

KeeWee's planning to skip the Sunday steel match and plant the new plants. Match reports here Sunday night or Monday, and garden reports over at KeeWee's Corner about the same times.

Have a good weekend!!

This compensator is totally incredible,I'm sure you could cook some sausages over the barrel while shooting :-)

In Europe these guns are sold as "tanfoglio" brand name.

They have a reputation of accuracy and feeding troubles sometimes.

This looks a lot like the race guns that the agents in "Heroes" carried...

Pretty sweet.
