First outing, Custom Carry




Got out to my range (a.k.a.my back yard) for some shooting with my new Custom Carry today. I must say it went very well, I was concerned it wouldn't cycle because it was tight. Accuracy was unbelievable, it was a joy to shoot. I fired 300 rounds of WWB 230 gn with one malfunction at round 89 or 90, fail to go into battery fully. After those 300 I ran 200 rounds of my reloads, 185 gn LRNFP with Unique. 500 rounds with only one malfunction. Every 50 rounds I would run a Boresnake thru it and add CLP for lube. This thing is amazing. Also took out a new Ruger 556 for it's first time. Total rounds fired today were right at 1250. Great day of shooting. My camera battery was dead so all I have are dirty pictures from my cell phone.

First some range pictures. Steel targets.



Ruger 556


Dirty Baer.

Forgot to mention all rounds were fired from Les Baer 8 rnd mags and Wilson 47D's. No issues with either.

Thanks buddy, the range is a work in progress, good thing is it's so far out I can shoot at night doing low-light drills without bothering anybody.
