He's still going to lose to the guys with the goat pictures. As for me, I'd rather do it the old fashioned way, by shooting poorly.

Travis….PM received….what you have suggested is immoral, unethical, slightly painful and probably illegal…


Give me a day or two and I think I can make it happen…..well everything except the part with the midget in the aviators.

OK, here are the gory details. I shot it cold, literally and figuratively. At least there was no wind.

I shot first with a Glock 30 SF. I fired from concealment, hands at my side, with a buttoned covershirt. It was pretty tragic. The picture:

I tried to imagine a couple of doubles, but I couldn’t get there. (It appears the 230 Blazers are not hitting square.) That is 4 misses outside the circle, 3 off paper. The low left one was shot weak hand, so it looks like I am grouping high right. That’s life. I was shooting too fast, as I had a lot of time left over at the end of every string except the kneeling shots. I don’t go for promotions, so kneeling is not something I practice with any regularity.

Now that I was warmed up, I decided to shoot my new “Lego Man” gun that I got last week. I shot 12 rounds on Sunday and it was doing fine with 48 ounce cooking oil jugs, so I set up again and fired rounds 13-22 from the gun. I forgot to bring the cheap kydex holster that came with the gun, so I put it in the pocket holster in my right front pocket and started with my right hand on the gun in my usual “orange thinking red” position. I don’t think that would have been any faster than drawing from a belt holster because I really wanted to be smooth and keep all my toes. I also started the weak hand string with the safety on. That went much better. The gun and the target, and then just the target.

Having seen the chatter about the FAST drill, I checked that out last night. I tried it with the P238. I used the same start position and put the reload loose in my left pocket. I did drop my final plate shot by a tiny margin, but I was happy that I pulled it off, including fishing the magazine out of my pocket in 8.49 seconds. With the Glock I bungled the reload really bad, missed one of the head shots, and was 3 seconds slower.

If this Sig shoots Gold Dots well, I think the 642 I have carried off and on for 22 years is about to be retired because I sure can’t shoot it like that! I have dies on order that should arrive later this week.

Good luck to all!

P.S. I need to thank TLEE for suggesting that cocked and locked carry of a P238 in a pocket is safe.

I did an evaluation on a P290 last week to see about adding it to our approved list. It was small, light and accurate, but definitely a handful.

Good shooting Cheyenne.

So your first target is your submission correct?

No, sorry. It'll still do at close range and it has a lot of sentimental value and character marks.

Yeah, the G30SF is the submission, unless you want to do BUG as well. I'm still going to shoot the CoF with the P238, just to see what it can do.

I'll shoot the CoF by this weekend. And, I will also shoot it a second time with my P238 just so Cheyenne feels better about his marksmanship!

It shoots a lot better than that target indicates. I recently switched to it after 6 years with a Sig DAK and 12 years prior with a Beretta D platform. I was a hater for too long but finally caught up to the 80s.

I can believe it.
I had a G30(not SF) for quite a few years, and I liked it. But the grip was a bit big, so I finally let it go.

Dang it!! I need one of those.


It'd be a slim chance of you losing it anyway.

It ain't pretty, but here it is. The top two were standing at 20. Evidently I've developed a heeling problem.

I'm currently between primary concealed carry guns, so figured I'd try my "Montana style" concealment technique for this shoot.

[Linked Image]

I utilize this carry method occasionally while wearing boots in town. A lot more comfortable than it looks.

Handgun: Ruger Single Six 32 H&R 4 5/8" barrel
85 grain Hornady XTP @1100 fps

[Linked Image]

Right about 5.5" center to center. This is the first time I've ever been timed with a single action. I noticed my form was a bit off when I was in a hurry, which translated into some wild grouping. This was fun, but I certainly need some work!
