have finally given in and joined the local indoor range. Don’t need to worry about the weather or the time of day or who else might be there. Its a bit further to drive than our unofficial outdoor site, but don’t have to carry targets and other stuff, and can then go on to other errands like groceries. Its also a guaranteed break in my week – I’m doing this one day a week, period.
So as I’m seeing my abilities improve, am also having the big DUH moments about upgrading my guns; improving my sights, changing out my grips. This came about when the simple sights on the GP100 broke – again – and the same cheap blade sights are what are available UNLESS they are completely upgraded to either fiber optic or tritium night sights. and??? So trying out the fiber optic ones, as I’ve enjoyed them in the past – and the are half the price of the others.
Then there is my old Colt Cobra. The thing is amazing accurate, but the grips are horrid and it is not fun to shoot! Again, DUH!!! change out the grips. Its not an original collector gun having been refinished, so why not use it and enjoy it? Looked it up, it was made in 1976. found three different Pachmayar grips offered and went with the one that was considered TOO big. Am not looking to conceal, but to comfortably use.
just plain old DUH!!
