Great day on the range with the CCO




Had an awesome day Saturday with the CCO. 450 flawless rounds attending a training session at a local range. (Let me know if you are looking for a great place to train in central Texas) The Garrett ST Fusion was a pleasure to use, and the whole rig was superb. I was the only guy running an IWB holster, but that's the way I carry-- train as you fight, right? Was also the only guy with a 1911. Sure I stuck some mags in my pocket, and did four times more reloads, but not a problem as far as I can see.

At the start of training the pistol had only the oil on it that was there when I arrived, I didn't do any additional clean or lube. The weapon was of course clean anyway, and had an appropriate amount of oil on it for normal use. I was curious to see if I would have any problems as the day went on. None, nada, nothing. I'm up to almost 1200 rounds, and I like this thing more each time I use it.

And of course some gratuitous gun porn. Nice and dirty, straight from the range.

Great post. I sold my polymer (XDM 45) to get my first 1911 (VBOB). I'm not that big and carrying the XDM was not practical. vBob is a pleasure to carry IWB, so I imagine the CCO is even better.

I am curious, what kind of other pistols were carried at this course and what kind of comments did you get for going old school (i.e proven, reliable)?

Not sure if the statistics support this, but I figure that after 7 or 8 rnds of 45 cal, the fight should be over. Never expect a prolonged battle. Like I said - probably not fact based.

That is good to hear I have been looking hard at the DW CCO. The high price and lack of any used ones is keeping me away. I may build one instead but the parts add up the almost the same. I may buid a CCO with a Doner gun instead and scrounge around GB for the few parts I am lacking and just get a barrel frame and slide from Remsport of Caspian/Foster. Glad yours works because the one I checked at the LGS was Camp Perry tight and I was a little concerned.CZ must be on the ball.

The guy next to me had an XD full size 9mm. He had no problems with function or ammo quantity, as you might expect. The other two folks (husband and wife) had Sigs in 40 cal, not sure of the models. She had multiple malfunctions during the day, but after watching her I honestly think she was limp wristing quite a bit. She commented at one point that she normally carries a Bersa 380 and was not real comfortable with gun she was using. To her credit, she got very good at clearing stoppages!

Didn't get many comments, but did get some very good natured applause a few times for my mag changes during the multi-target engagements on the move

As far as how much ammo is enough-- my philosophy is to always have some left over when it's over! There's a running discussion going on over in "general gun discussion" about that very topic.
