Range Report 02-07-2010

Well I’m finally getting settled in here in Fairbanks and now have my guns back so I figured it was a perfect day for a trip to the outdoor range. You can see the range weather in one of the pics at the bottom.

Had zero issues with any of the guns, wasn’t too cold but was still glad everything worked fine. I’m still breaking in the 1911 but it has run like a sewing machine so far. The Glock 19 continued to be boringly reliable. I was most concerned about the batteries in the EoTech on my AR with the cold but it also preformed like a champ.

I’d say the frozen targets were a success. It was very satisfying to watch chunks of ice get blown apart, espically when you are surronded by it.

I also tried out a new spinning target from Duraseal. It was ~20 bucks at Sportsmans Warehouse here in town and I didn’t expect a whole lot out of it. Boy was I wrong, I set it up a little too far out for me so it didn’t get as many hits as I would have liked but the ones it did take healed right up to were you almost can’t tell it was hit. After I get some more rounds into it I will post an actual review.

Overall good times, just wish it was warmer out and ammo was cheaper. We can dream can’t we?

Keep up the good fight
-Rob
